As we sat with our cyclists, my eyes spotted a beautiful sight, not often seen except in the wild – a Phoenix popup. But, here we were, visiting at KOA in Dubois, and this one was close enough to touch.
In the middle of Wyoming, we met Jeff Buck and his wife Bobbi, from California. They had just picked up this custom unit 2 days ago from Colorado! Jeff had researched all of the popups available, and he had some very specific modifications he required. Jeff goes off-road, hunts, and does some photography. One item he desired was a very large opening in the roof … so that he could do some spotting while in the comfort of home, and from an elevated position.
Jeff contacted Cari and Robby Rowe at Phoenix, and they were happy to accomodate him. The opening they wanted fit exactly between the roof supports.
They also got the front “cap”, special cabinetry and countertop … very, very nicely done! Jeff was pretty particular about the features that were important to them … and they both said that dealing with Cari and Rob was a dream. We also got to see the popup going up and down, as the Bucks were in and out of the campground – an extremely quick and painless process.
Oh, the floors were bamboo too … pictures can’t capture how nice this TC is!
Jeff said he couldn’t even feel the camper on his truck … and his mileage changed not a whit. Nice.
Lots of custom features … tailored just for theirs needs. Jeff too keeps track of his business while on the road … but with this TC, he’s ready to go on a moments notice!

Great write-up! We are now interviewing Jeff as part of an article about custom campers in our magazine, http://www.truckcampermagazine.com. Would it be okay to use some of your photos of his camper in the article? We think they’re great and highlight the customizations in his camper. Please let me know. – Angela
Yup … use them at will.
