It All Began With A Popup

Our Sweet GypsyRose

Purchased   •   June 2, 2016


Our precious Gypsy Rose was my first Glamper full renovation.  When I bought her my wanderlust had reached a feverish pitch and I NEEDED a way to take my kids on adventures without breaking the bank.  My requirements were that I could hitch her up to my SUV (Acura MDX) easily, and that I could set her up and tear her down by myself if necessary.  I needed room to fit us comfortably and a place we could also bring along a friend or two if we wanted.

She underwent a full face-lift when I bought her.  I tore everything out and spent night and day working on her in my driveway, while my kids came in and out demanding meals and such.

I used indoor/outdoor fabric on all the cushions so they could withstand the beating a camping family could give her.  I needed her to be beautiful while being functional.

All the original window treatments got trashed, so I custom made blackout curtains that provide very nice sun blockage in the morning.  (I pull them off and fold them when we tear down so they don’t get wrinkled.)

Jay Groff custom-designed a beautiful new table-top that he screwed directly into the old table, creating a stunning piece that can still be used as a base for the third bed if needed.  (Everything folds down flat and the cushions connect to form a third king-size bed.)

The pull out beds are both king-size and all the middle cushions fold out into another king sized bed

The air conditioner was ice cold and the heat worked surprisingly great.  We used both in different climates and slept very comfortably.

Popups are a great starter camper
