      We picked up our custom-made Phoenix Pop-up from Coyote RV in Denver this spring, after a long 2+ years of planning and construction. Robbie did his usual great job on the build and we are very happy with the result.

      We did not want a tiny truck-born house. We camp outside, and wanted the truck camper to provide secure & convenient storage and a dry place to sleep. There is only one small built-in cabinet and no built-in stove, icebox, sink or water tankage. We do not cook inside the camper. Our kitchen gear is contained in two milk-crate size boxes, which keeps it dry, dust-free and portable. The boxes are easily lifted out and used with the external camper-mounted shelf, or carried to a campground picnic table, or even into a motel room.

      The bed is Queen-size and oriented so each person can get in and out without disturbing the other. There is full sitting headroom over the mattress when the top is up, and of course full standing headroom elsewhere.

      I have a couple of PDF files with the complete drawings and specifications that we sent to Coyote RV if anyone is interested in the details. Just e-mail me and I will send them along (6MB worth). kpherzog(at)yahoo(dot)com

      I just emailed and I’m communicating with Cari right now. The best thing with Phoenix campers as they can build exactly what you want. Minimalist like your or much bigger like the one I want. I want the chassis mount with the side door. I like the light weight and the lower roof for better aerodynamics.

      Glad you are happy with your camper. I can’t weight to start the process of picking options and finalizing the floor plan. I still have 2 years + to go.

      Very cool, Kurt. We’ll soon be publishing a full-length feature on their new Mini Max. Rob answered a lot of questions for us.
