Actually, it doesn't appear to pop up at all.

Dang!

I saw the title of this thread and hoped I was finally going to get the answer to a question that's been burning me forever:

Can you fit a flip-pac on a Bronco?

(What about a K5 Blazer?)

I wonder that as well, how about 1st gen 4runner also.
What about Wildernests?
Anyone know?

Regarding Flip-Pacs: Anything can be made to fit, but here are some basic measurements. The flippy part is 5 x 7 feet. The box below it varies in size to fit the pickup bed.

I used to have an 89 full size Bronco with a pop up camper on it. Camper was made by Hallmark, here in Colorado. Completely custom, previous owner of the Bronco had it made, told me it was ~10 grand at the time (around 1999-2000). I loved the thing, if only it had a bathroom/shower it would have been perfect. Unfortunately, when I owned it, I couldn't afford the gas to keep using it, sold it a few years ago to a couple in Boulder.

I know it's off topic (sort of)... Oh, and here's some pictures since I know I would beg for them as well.

Last one is with the top down, but you get the idea, benches, table, fridge, stove, heater, etc, etc.
