okay, I got some more pics of the offroad Popup. I tested it out on some dirt hills and it never dragged anything. I am really liking it. Still plan to built what I really want but just no time right now. Here's some pics, great idea if you can find a 8 foot box popup. they are just hard to find. I had one a few years ago but sold it. I wish I hadn't.














Still working on defunking the inside. It is really good condition just a little dirty. Probably put some new flooring tiles in it and dress it up a bit.

Good looking popup. I have owned a total of 5 popups over the years and have always been satisfied. Like your lift and extra long tougne. I'm curious how Coleman's staple & glue construction will hold up offroad.

So far it has been to big bend 3 times, Colorado 3 times and various other places. I think the key is having a good sub-frame. this one is built out of 3/16 x 2x3 tubing. So very little flex. The popup still sits on it's original frame. That frame is mounted to the new trailer. This my third.

Nice. I want to get a pop up as well. I like the Coleman Cobalt since the JKU has limitied towing abilities - that is if you don't have a Hemi!! I haven't been camping in a really long time but want to start taking my boys, but they might be just a little to young (3 and 20 months). I know I should probably start with a tent first to make sure they like it, but I want to jump straight to a pop up. Just another thing on the wish list...

We started taking our daughter out at 3 month camping. My JKU with the 3.l tow this great. that is what i will be towing it with most of the time.

Cool toy man. I'm considering building my offroad trailer as a sort of pop up.

I like it! Is it transplanted on a 10' commercial trailer or hand built? I am looking to do much the same, but looking for cheezy popup with no AC to improve. Looking to install small btu window unit that will run off a 3500w ginny. Also considering the benifits of a pintle over a ball...Did you consider it and reject the thought? You have a great base to put some custom racks on! Anyway, nice rig brother!
