Sep 18, 2019 — This business consists of the proven product concept, which is a unique pop-up camper/truck topper made from fiberglass and cloth that has a high level of comfort and versatility. The unique aspect of this pop-up is that it maintains the dimensions of the pickup when in its folded position, which improves truck performance and stability while traveling. When expanded, the pop-up provides adequate standing room, 9’ width, as well as the comforts of beds, lighting and heat, while strong materials keep out the elements, eliminating the need for a separate trailer. The owner is open to partnerships and alternative ownership structures. This business is relocatable.
The current owner started this business in 2013, with the hopes of setting up a formal production line to produce and sell the product. Production lines were operational for a period, ending approximately three years ago. Currently, the assets include a functioning demo model, a CAD program with detailed drawings for all required parts, over 1700 customer contacts, and vendor relationships, all of which are included as a part of the sale.
Competitive Overview There are other pop-up campers that are sold but are either significantly more expensive and/or are set on pull-behind trailers. Therefore, the competitive advantage of this product is the ease of use by using the existing cargo bed of a pickup truck, thus negating the need for a trailer.
Potential Growth Since this product is still in the early production phase, there is substantial opportunity for growth. The current owner has set up a website and continues to receive two inquiries a week for this product with no advertising or SEO investment. Once production is underway, there is definite pent-up demand for this unique solution to back country camping experiences.
