What's new at Coyote RV/Phoenix Pop up?
Just a newbee here. Rob from Coyote RV, where we build the Phoenix Custom hand made campers. We fit pretty much any SUV or Pick up with camping units. It's just my family, a couple of friends, and I who make these units, therefore depending on the design complexity, we only build about 20 or 30 little gems each year. We are not trying to get any bigger or faster, only better. And, doing only custom work, we aren't looking to challenge anyone's big business or sales numbers. I believe there is plenty of room for all of us to do what we do for the market, without stepping on any toes. So, since each and every one of our units is completely unique, I thought it might make a sort of interesting thread on this forum. So, if you all don't mind too much, I would like to keep this thread running and post an update now and then (whenever I get a few "extra" minutes) about whatever current project we are working on. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a couple of pictures showing some of our previous projects.
Tomorrow morning we are setting up a nice Frontier Crew Cab long bed with a nicely equipped unit, fit to the tail lights. Most folks ask for the refrigerator, furnace, stove, sink, jacks, beds, etc... then we get into the custom stuff. These folks named their camper "Li'l One" so we had their name plates made up, plus they requested a very nice custom upholstery material, and city water hook up. I will post photos of the finished installed product, and any comments about the installation day. Thank you for reading, talk soon, Rob
By the way, I am a sponsor

I thought it would be best to talk about what I do know, instead of scabbing in on other people's REAL overland stories. Truthfully, I am an "Overlander Wannabe." Spend all my free time designing and building the products that allow real adventurers to do what they are made to do. I guess somebody's got to do it, and I think it is my calling.... love to browse the site and see what all of you are accomplishing out there!! Everybody, keep up the posts, and I will do the same, so you all know what we are up to!
Photos to follow tomorrow, promise
Ok, today the great new unit called "Li'l One" was successfully loaded onto it's new mate, a beautiful white Nissan Frontier Crew Cab Long Bed. Everything went fantastic and smooth. The only thing is, some nice folks dropped in right after the installation, and we designed their new Phoenix pop up the rest of the afternoon. So, we had to run off late to high school hockey, and I forgot the camera connection cord at work.
We will post pictures and notes about the Frontier installation tomorrow for sure!
Wrangler unlimited campers!
Hi Northern Explorer,

As alway, you can get yours with a nice food refrigeration unit, heater, stove, gear storage, queen bed, and some other goodies.... or you can go a little more "roughing it." Haven't captured a lot of photos as of yet. Would love to have our customers send more pics of them covered in MUD and Muck, like they're supposed to be. I am confident that one of these days they will remember to pack a camera! A couple of parking lot photos we did capture during a pre-installation fitting, below.
