Pop-Up Campers: Things to Consider Before You Order

The decision to purchase a custom pop-up camper can be an exciting one, but it’s important to make sure you’re making an informed choice before ordering your camper. Once the camper has been delivered and you start living in it, you won’t be able to return it or exchange it, so choose carefully. In this guide, we’ll review your options when ordering your custom pop-up camper so that you can choose the right one for your lifestyle and goals. At Phoenix Pop-Up, we can customize your camper to accommodate all your needs and wants!

What Kind of Interior Do You Want?

Pop-up campers have several different configurations.

Pop-up campers have several different configurations. Some have a bed that folds down from the ceiling, while others have cabinets and couches that fold out of cabinets. Many pop-ups also feature a table, refrigerator, sink, and small stove. The floor plan is generally fairly open, meaning you can use a pop-up as a camper but also for other purposes such as storage or office space.

Where Will You Camp?

First, think about where you’ll be sleeping at night. Are you planning on boondocking — that is, setting up your camper outside of established campgrounds and spending your nights in nature? Or will you be doing a lot of car camping — driving up to a campsite, then setting up your camper alongside dozens or hundreds of other RVs and trying to get some rest?

If You Want Accessories, What Do You Want Them To Do?

Pop-up campers offer a lot of customization, from designs and exteriors to interior accessories. There are so many options that it’s hard to know where to start! First things first: Do you want your new camper for camping? Or do you simply want a tiny living space? Once you’ve identified your main use, you can narrow down your options.

Would You Like an Open Floor Plan?

Pop-up campers usually have an open floor plan, meaning that all of your living and sleeping quarters are out in plain view. This design isn’t for everyone — particularly those who want privacy. Open campers can be great for a family or for those who don’t mind occasionally having company during their camping trips. But if you want to retain a sense of privacy, opt for a camper with some sort of separator to keep one are for sleeping and one for living/cooking/storage.
