Jacksboro, Tennessee-based Bushtec Products’ Bunkhouse camper trailers has introduced a new pop-up travel trailer that the company hopes will expand its market beyond motorcycles towing the campers to reach people who prefer to drive their automobiles.
The Queen Model Bunkhouse Camper weighs only 285 pounds, yet comes with 17 cubic feet of storage. The unit measures 107 inches in total length, with a overall width including fenders of 48.5 inches and a towing height of 38 inches.
Body colors come in white, black, gray, and beige. The tent material, made from 400 denier fabric, comes in burgundy or navy blue.
Users can access the cargo area on the road and by lifting the bed frame when the unit is set up.
“Our trailers have been very popular among motorcycle riders for quite some time,” said Gary Sipes, vice president of sales and marketing.
“This new model makes it attractive to people who like to travel with their cars. There is plenty of room for two people to sleep and relax in the living area. And, at 285 pounds, they don’t need anything other than a hitch to tow the unit.”
The company displayed the units at the North American Trailer Dealers Association expo in St. Louis in early September in hopes of attracting the attention of RV dealers looking for ultra lightweight units to sell to their customers, said Sipes.
Bunkhouse front bows are located on the outside, which makes it easy for one or two people to open and fold. Both front and rear awnings are standard, and are sewn to the main tent.
Bunkhouse Camper split the side windows making it easier to open or close the window flaps. In addition, you can have privacy around the bed and still have your dressing room side windows open.
Bunkhouse trailers come with LED taillights and stoplights as standard equipment for your safety and very low amperage draw on your battery and charging system.
Other features include:
- White travel cover
- Adjustable tongue stand
- Two-frame mounted read adjustable jack stands
- Adjustable bed support
- Panoramic windows
- Plastic window in front door
- 4-by-5-foot living area
- Self-supporting rear window awning
- Gas prop assisted lids
- 12-inch radial tires with chrome caps and lugnuts
- LED taillights
