    Does anybody have one of these? I cant find any reviews. I really like the simplistic design. Im a minimalist camper these days. My big TT days are over.

    Have never seen one, just looked it up. For just myself and a dog I could totally go for one of those.

    Go to rvtrader.com. The prices vary a great deal by area. Utah wants $4999 for one and I found some in PA for $2999. WTH?

    I looks like a decent unit for one person not much else other than sleeping, but it would beat sleeping in a tent on the ground. I prefer a little more room. Good Luck and happy camping

    I’ve watched a few videos of these and think they are really cool. If you are searching, be sure to include its sister the Clipper Express 9.0 which is the same thing.

    I agree it would be great for a minimalist setup. I personally would prefer a teardrop for the outside kitchen, but this design has the advantage of standing room for getting dressed, etc.

    That's because they are produced in Michigan. It costs less to ship to PA than to UT because of the mileage to get there.

    Interesting. That would be a tight fit but looks like a real bed is in it!

    I found 2 new ones, one for $3200 and the other for $3900.
    Looks like a real bed, and not much else. Perfect when you just need a place to sleep.

    I own a 2017 9.0 Express. Got it at Ketlemen Camper in Wheat Ridge Colo. Had a tail light defect the dealer would not fix as they blamed it on my truck. Wont go into more detail, but was not treated well by the dealer. Got the lowball deal tho of $3200. After a year it has developed a few problems. All workable, but anoying .
    1. Screens, fabric and canvas are all light duty and get shredded on rough screw heads that are on the top of the box. Had to countersink new screws and replace round heads with bugles.
    2. Leveler jacks have no real stable foundation . All were dangling when I got home to Oregon coast from Colo. and were held on by 2 wimpy sheet metal screws. Since then have fortified with nuts and bolts.
    Pros: Tows nice. 660 lb unit. (I drive an old T 100 4x4 with the 3.0 and its all it can take without straining) so, we are happy with the light weight factor. Zippers are heavy duty. Bed is a residential full size so if you want, you can put a real nice mattress in it. The factory one is acceptable. Big storage under the bed. LBNL, it is water tight in a big rain. We also upgraded to a bigger tire and wheel. Plan to keep it long term and hoping it will hold up.

    Do you know where you could buy replacement canvas for it? I too am extremely interested in this camper but am a big diy repair guy (dealerships cost far too much) and I can't find where you can buy replacement canvas for it.

    Canvas Replacements or Bear Creek Canvas are both good places. Not cheap though.
