OK, I will try again but there doesn't seem to be any action at all on this forum. Is there a hard sided on-truck (in the bed) truck camper out there other than Alaskan, which I already am familiar with? I'm looking for a light weight, low profile pop up that is all hard materials, preferably fiberglass or metal. No canvas etc. Anybody?

I personally do not know of a pop up camper that does not have canvas.

Pretty sure the Alaskan is the 'original' truck camper, & as far as I'm aware it is the only 'hard side' pop-up. They've been around for a lotta years, are kinda heavy & pricey! Even a used one in decent shape goes for bigger bucks than most 'soft' side pop-ups...

Truck and Camper Setup: The plan will utilize a 3500 GMC with a 11 or 12' TC with a full compliment of Torklift hitch components and tie downs. Stable loads if needed will be installed.



Hallmark and Northstar IMO make the best pop up units, however both appear to have a little canvas just under the lid. Both of these builders again are the best in the industry and I would bet you will be happy with one of there offerings. Take a look at some of Northstars hard walls while your at there site, you may change your mind about wanting a pop up.

I know this is late but the XP Camper is a hard side pop up but the bed area does have soft canvas.

I am surprised more truck camper manufactures don't at least try a hard side pop up.

You have got to be joking.. $114,000 for a truck camper. The people who own this outfit are smoking something real good....

Big hit with the upwardly mobile fat cats maybe, Not so much with people who have to work for a living....
