We recently had a great trip from Utah along Big Sur. It was still closed due to the slide. But it made for a great camping spot. Next to Highway 1. We love the pop up camper.

Which camper is that? I'd love to hear details and see the interior.

If you don't mind sharing where in Big Sur did you go? I am out that way and new to the area. It looks like a good area you were in.

We went up from the south passing San Simeon on the Cabrillo Hwy

I thought Phoenix camper has electric roof lift by default. Is there an option to use manual lift instead? What is the dry weight of the camper?
1300 lbs wet and loaded for travel. But it really depends on how much water we load and what gear we take. I have removed the rear seats in the Gladiator and we carry most of our gear there. With the Mopar 2" lift, 35" E-rated tires, rear air bags, and a Hellwig rear sway bar, the Gladiator has no issues with the camper. Even off-road it handles it very well.

Noice. This is what I am looking for. Is your camper fitted with electric roof lift? It looks quite different from the other Phoenix camper I've seen before.

Nope this is a 2014 model. These are custom built for the owners. I like not having the extra weight of a motorized lift. But they would come in handy with a snow load on the top. We remodeled the interior, added the Dometic DZ65, installed an additional Diesel Heater, and made some other upgrades. With a queen size bed up top and a lower berth if needed, it is a great little camper. We love the pop-top sitting on the Gladiator. If we ever get somewhere that we want to go exploring the camper is off in just a few minutes.

So far this has been a great combination to for our Overlanding build.
