A Tent Camper Is Like A Miniature Recreational Vehicle
Michalis 'BIG Mike' Kotzakolios


Defined Tag:

The versatile tent camper combines the portability of a tent with some of the amenities of a full recreational vehicle. Also called a pop up camper, this unique apparatus is a compact trailer that is towed behind your car or truck. Once the campsite is reached, the camper is assembled via levers and cranks, to provide a large tent structure as well as sleeping wings, a small kitchen area, and sometimes a tiny toilet facility. Here are some tips for getting the most fun and use out of your pop up camper rental.

You need a towing hitch to use a tent style camper. If your vehicle already has one, the camper rental store will provide you with the proper size hitch ball. If you do not have a trailer hitch, portable hitch assemblies are available for rent. Your pop up camper tent will follow you to whatever destination you can imagine, as long as the terrain allows the tent trailer camper to be towed.

If you are not experienced with towing trailers, take the time to practice maneuvering the pop up camper trailer. The tent style camper can be problematic even when driving on straight roads. Your car will essentially be eight to twelve feet longer, so allow more room when changing lanes. Backing up is the primary fear of those who rent tent campers. The pop up trailer seems to have a mind of its own. Practice backing your tent style camper into parking spots in a secluded area, because that's what you'll have to do at the camp site.

Like a recreational vehicle, a tented pop up camper requires utility connections to make full use of its amenities. You'll need connections for electricity and water. Sometimes propane or natural gas is available. Plan your camper trip to stop nightly at campsites that cater to pop up campers, find your slot, crank open the pop up tent, and connect the utilities.

When you open the camper, it expands to several times the footprint of the trailer. However, a pop up tented camper is cramped compared to a full size recreational vehicle. Small children or a large group may quickly become irritable at having to sleep in such a small s space for extended vacations. However, a tent camper provides a unique way to vacation that provides benefits of both a tent and the bigger recreational vehicles.
