Poptop on a Jeep - ursaminor

Interesting for the minimalist. It's like those mini candybars, when you don't really need a full size one

It seems to be the half step between truck camping and van camping.

It was found through a leader article from http://www.gizmag.com.

Nice. I'd love to have that on a Jeep...Hell I'd like to have a Jeep. One of these days maybe.

That's sweet! BTW, Derek at Colorado Camper Van does that kind of stuff as well as vans. He's done an Excursion, a minivan or two, and some other unique stuff. Neat, I wonder how much those conversions go for?

Seems reasonable. Per Gixmag

Ursa lists the base price at US$5,250. It began deliveries in May, and Gish estimates a six- to eight-week lead time between ordering and shipping.

Ursa Minor's second Wrangler camper is the J180, which uses a fold-out roof tent. Pricing has yet to be listed for that model.



It also doesn't add much to the roofline. It wouldn't work for a longer term trip but would be nice for the occasional overnighter.

Re: Poptop on a Jeep - ursaminor

There are two or three of those Honda Element eCampers in my area.
They look well made and dont add much height.
On the Jeep I like the pop top better than the flip over.
I love how quick the eCamper top goes open...too bad they dont make Ford van tops.

Most know about this, but thought it should be included in case someone doesn't. Only actual motorhome to complete the Rubicon Trail. Now out of production.
