Pop-up campers truly unlock the potential for offroad adventuring with your rig … and Leentu may have just built the lightest, most aerodynamic camper in the game.

Leentu has built two pop-up campers and are taking pre-orders for what they call “The world’s most lightweight and aerodynamic pop-up camper.”

The Leentu Camper (MSRP $10,295) is an ultra-lightweight tailored composite camper shell featuring a durable sandwich construction with integrated weatherproof tent — And it weighs in at 150 pounds. The Leentu Carbon Camper (MSRP $13,995) is made with a Nomex Honeycomb sandwich construction with integrated weatherproof tent, weighing in at only 100 pounds.

Both are made for the long bed Toyota Tacoma (2005 and newer models) and can deploy in seconds. Set-up can be done with only two people and is said to be relatively easy.

Features of both models include a weatherproof, marine-grade tent with zippered windows, USB charging ports, six feet of standing room, LED lighting, solar pre-wiring, a stowaway loft bed with high-density foam mattress and a hinged full-height rear-door with an integrated folding table. And what’s more, you can score a 20-percent discount if you place a preorder.

Considering the Leentu campers make it easier and simpler to outfit your rig with a pop-up camper, these are definitely a win. And Leentu has also said they are open to making pop-up campers for other vehicles if the market demands it.
