Hi Rob & Cari!
I got back from Louisiana on Sunday. I still think I’m recovering from the drive and long week of fishing!
I met my friend Patrick Spencer in Tucson April 18th and we hit the road running! With 2 boats in tow to the Red River, we were both excited to get there. So much so, that we drove a straight 20 hours. We finally made a stop in Lindale, TX, just east of Dallas, to sleep for a few hours in the camper. It was so great to be able to crawl into a full sized bed at a moments notice!
Our good friend and customer Larry Wittman has taken his “decked out” ’78 Chevy truck with one of our Custom Pop Up Truck Campers on many trips over the last few years that he has had it. This year’s trip was through the Mojave Rd and Death Valley. You can get detailed information on his trip by following the links below!
“We’ve already been out 4 times this year. Three were up to WV in the snow. Stayed toasty warm even in a 7 degree night with just a small electric under-desk heater. Furnace is also working great. We used it this weekend when we went remote camping in WV. The fourth trip was down along the coast. This is a picture of us in the snow at the campground at Canaan Valley State Park WV. Feel free to use it if you want. Note the icicles coming off the top. This was the warm weekend. The first time we were up there this year, it was 7 deg in the AM and never got above 12.” – Thanks, Dave
Yes, you read it right. We were contacted by a prospective customer who asked if we could build a camper to fit his 6’9″ height in both the pop up height and bed length, and of course we answered YES! Of course we can! So we proceeded to build a Custom Pop up Camper for this very nice gentleman who we had only communicated with via email and over the phone. We knew his name was Nate, he currently resides in MA and was originally from right here in CO, and that he would be happy to pick up the camper out here while spending some time seeing family and friends.
When he came to pick up his camper, Nate was happy to fit into his own camper and stand up straight without hitting his head and sleep without his feet hanging over the end of the bed. We however were excited when we realized that he is the Nate Solder, 2011 first round draft pick from CU, Offensive Tackle for the New England Patriots! Nate is truly one of the most humble down to earth people I have ever met!
We are so happy we are here to be able to fill that little niche that folks need when it comes to customizing their camper to fit their own individual needs!
“In the six years we’ve known Robby and Cari Rowe, Co-Owners of Phoenix Custom Campers, we have learned to expect the unexpected.”
Check out Truck Camper’s interview with Rob and Cari about the Bronco Bronco:
This camper went out a couple of weeks ago to this great family of four. Here is what they had to say:
“Hello Cari – So far we have had 2 nights in the camper and everything has worked great. I bet Rob didn’t know he was designing a slide for 2 little boys on the passenger side of the truck camper. But it took Tanner and Casey no time to enjoy that feature and yeah I use it too. I am very glad I went for my inverter, charge controller, and solar system installed. We have to used the heater the last 2 nights. Takes 1 minute of running to heat the entire camper and truck up for the night.
Last night we stopped in north platte and found the cody campground. We decided in 10 minutes we are staying here if we go through north platte again. 5 bucks to camp. water hookups. A free zoo with plenty of animals to feed. I liked seeing buffalo and feeding the giant male elk. Told the donkey I loved him in shrek. They also have an amusement park with .50 cent rides and a restaurant with strawberry soft serve ice cream. Right now we have lots of geese and a river in our backyard. Tanner and Casey are playing with lego cars in that backyard. It will be hard to top this camping spot. But I will continue to look. Before we left Denver one of our stops for the boys was the lego store. The set Tanner got was a lego camper. Gee wonder why. I made breakfast yesterday and melinda today. So much cheaper travelling with your own hotel and restaurant with gas at 3.50 plus. We went to the rockies game in Denver. My 12th major league stadium now. Great stadium, great area for the boys, really friendly people, sat next to a guy from sioux city also in town for the weekend. But horrible team. No wonder your hockey fans. Go Gophers!”
“Dear Rob and Cari, The camper turned out to be everything we had hoped. All systems operated smoothly and we were especially surprised with how efficiently the refrigerator worked.
Cari, Rob, We want you to know we had a blast on our trip back home after picking up the camper and overall are VERY happy with it. We could go anywhere and spent a night in the middle of Buffalo National Grassland outside of the Badlands.
“Hi Rob and Cari, We installed the camper into our 1942 Dodge military 4X4 today. Wendy was biting her nails about the fit. But everything fit perfect! It even has a little wiggle room. We are very pleased. We are just now getting to know the camper and how to get in and out with two little people. It will be great. Attached are a couple photos. We’ll send some more as we get it out and use it. I’ll try and get some photo’s with better background soon. Thanks for all you help. What a fun project.” – Jeff and Wendy
Another great article about one of our customers written by Gordon and Angela White at Truck Camper Magazine. Check it out along with all the other great information on their site:
“I just spent the last week living out of the camper in Hylite canyon in Montana. It made a excellent ice climbing base camp for me and my friend. It was so nice to ice climb all day and then hike down to a nice warm, dry camper home. There were a lot of very jealous climbers checking out the rig on their way to their soggy tents and snow caves!”
“Hi Cari and Rob! Hope all is well… Just a quick note to say I spent three of the best months of my life in the Elvis Wong Special Edition… Travelling down the west coast, playing tunes and kite surfing. The unit held up awesome and was a pure pleasure. I wrote a few songs last summer in the camper. Here’s one of them, finally got it recorded and edited. I am entering the world live looping championships with it so I am in need of a favor. This comp is all about the amount of hits in the first week so if you could pass it along to your contacts, that would be extremely appreciated!!! Thanks kindly and talk soon! Camping season (freedom!!!) is upon us! Take care.” – Alex
“Rob, I have been negligent in letting you know how much Krista and I have enjoyed our camper. We first took a shake down weekend run to Camp Dick up Hwy 72. Yes the campground was crowded, and we were able to show the camper to a couple of families who all went ooooh, aaah…
