What’s The Best Pop up Camper with Toy Hauler [Incl. Seven Recommendations]

If you don’t want to opt to add a significant investment in a full RV to your adventuring plans (just yet) a towable pop-up camper is one of the many alternatives available to you.

If you have ‘toys’ you like to take along to enhance your camping trips – mountain bikes, dirt bikes, four wheelers, jet skis and other fun recreational vehicles – a pop-up camper with toy hauler might be just what you need.

But what’s the best pop camper with toy hauler? And what are they in the first place? These, and other related issues, are what we are going to take a closer look at here.

What is a Pop-Up Camper With Toy Hauler? Why Would You Want One Anyway?

Before we discuss anything else, as there are all kinds of RVs and campers available to choose from, we should define what a pop-up camper is.

Perfect for use with a larger SUV – and with most trucks – a pop-up camper is very much what it sounds like: a small camper that folds down, can be towed behind a vehicle, and then ‘popped up’ when you reach your camping destination.

These are among the more basic RV offerings you can choose. There is rarely a lot of luxury involved, and in some cases not a lot of living space, but they offer a significant step up from a basic tent, and, if you are willing to invest more, and have a vehicle that can handle hauling, larger pop-up campers offers a nice little ‘home from home’.

A pop-up camper with toy hauler allows you to take some of those extra recreational toys along for the ride.

Unlike a traditional toy hauler, which is an enclosed garage area at the rear of a camper, a pop-up camper features an open storage and haulage area at its rear, or, occasionally, on it’s folded down roof area.

The reason this combination is appealing to an increasing number of camping enthusiasts is that a pop-up camper with toy hauler allows them to haul all the basics they need for their camping trip in one ‘package’, a package that can be towed behind their everyday vehicle.

In addition to a full size bed there is a small dining area, a grill area, a small sink, and, with the higher priced package options, a working A/C unit.

It can also be popped up (or down) with one hand and while dormer campers are not always great for tall people, this one boasts a surprising amount of headroom.

Love a good old-fashioned tent camping experience but want to take your toys along for the ride too? Don’t want to make a huge investment in a more complicated pop up camper just yet? Then this might be the best choice for you.

Jumping Jack tent trailers – there are actually several models available – feature a lot more than your standard tent. The interior features long bunk beds on either side of the trailer and a fold down table and basic chairs suitable for sitting down to a light meal.

You’ll need to make use of campsite amenities for everything else, but if you have a lighter SUV, the lower weight means that you are not excluded from the RV camping experience completely!
