Flatbed flatbed flatbed! Heh.
Oh man. This is getting real now. Do you guys have any reference for a hard side pop up setup? Dream would be to build a side entry flatbed hard side pop up. I'm talking to a manufacturer in Australia currently and I'm amazed at the lack of this in the market other than the very long in the tooth Alaskans.Sure. Simply fill out the quotation template below and email back to us for pricing.
I have built several fixed wall lifting roof campers in Germany. Also have about 10 of ours on the road in Australia.Oh man. This is getting real now.

HBE is a soft-wall design, though. I think Whiskey and Victorian are talking about full hard-wall pop-ups, a la Alaskan and some of the euro-market ones.Overland Explorer HBE is exactly what you are describing, camper must be purchased with matching flatbed but given their design I would view this as a plus unless you already have a tray
Correct that's my only hangup. OE looks to be one of the highest quality in the game right now. I did verify with the owner that they don't require you to buy it with the flatbed and can retro to your existing setup. Very flexible and the fit and finish and ongoing improvements indicate a manufacturer that IS NOT MESSING AROUND. My complaint about a lack of hard side pop up isn't focused on them but more at our market. An updated Alaskan with modern materials is all I ask. Nimbl is a half baked solution for my requirements. Seems such a thing might sell well. I'm actually pretty amazed at some of the $300k setups offered in pop up are soft wall. Non-starter for me as I'm hoping to use it for snowboarding/touring in winter and really hate the noise at many established camps (ATV's Side by sides, generators etc).HBE is a soft-wall design, though.

Delayed is better than lost...Our container is delayed by almost 4 weeks won’t be able to have the first show samples together till at least mid January. Sorry guys. Our list of interested buyers is growing every day. 2021 will be crazy busy for us.
I know...Delayed is better than lost...
New analysis of drone video footage of the ONE Apus container vessel, which suffered a dramatic stack collapse on 30 November in the Pacific, has revealed that as much as 4,500 teu could be lost or damaged. The 14,000 teu vessel suffered a massive container stack collapse en route to Long Beach...theloadstar.com
don’t have the files in front of me but I believe that the empty shell in that size is around 680lbDo you know what the weight might be for a shell that is 6’4 floor length (fits inside the box on ram 2500)? I have a power wagon so my payload is quite low (about 1500 pounds). I really want to put a true four season hard sided camper on it but I really can’t find any that are light enough.
