Used pop-up truck campers are typically available for purchase from local dealers listed on recreational vehicle websites such as Camping World, RV Trader and Hallmark Campers. These websites provide a means for used equipment dealers from around the United States to advertise available units.
Pop-up truck campers are units that are set into the bed of a pickup truck. The defining characteristic of these units is that the ceiling can be jacked up, typically with a manual cranking system. This pop-up feature provides more headroom inside the camper. Additionally, truck campers often feature post jacks that support the weight of the camper when parked and in use to stabilize the unit independently from the vehicle suspension system. These jacks are mechanically operated or power-assisted on newer and high-end models.
Used pop-up truck campers generally retail for $2,500 to $28,000 as of 2015, depending on year and model as well as condition of a particular unit. More expensive models have luxury features such as an indoor toilet and shower connected to a water tank, a built-in counter and sink system and multiple bunks. High-end models also typically feature integrated power systems that power conveniences such as a refrigerator, stereo system and propane stove system.
