There is no reason you cannot extend a product’s lifespan just because it has a projected lifespan. A pop-up camper may last for 15 years, but that does not mean it will stop working after the 15th year just because it lasts for 15 years. You can actually extend the life of your popup camper by another five years. Even longer lasting popup campers are possible. In fact, some owners still have pop-up campers they purchased in the 1970s that work like new.

You simply need to follow the tips below if you want your popup camper to last that long:

  • As soon as you get your camper, you should be aware of the importance of proper maintenance. This means that every aspect of the camper has to be maintained, particularly the important components such as the pipes, tanks, electrical systems, and vents.
  • Several components of your pop-up camper will wear out before the 10-year warranty expires. If your popup camper is a soft-sided tend one, you could have your canvas rip in the 6th year mark.
  • You should simply fix it and any other problems that may arise rather than ignoring them and letting them grow worse.
  • Your popup camper needs to be winterized. Therefore, there are quite a few steps that you need to take when storing your camper for the winter so that it can survive.
  • Having a cover on your popup camper may reduce its longevity if a cold front comes through your driveway.
  • You can ensure the viability of your camper by placing it in a garage or choosing to store it indoors.
  • Maintain a regular cleaning schedule for your camper. You might think it’s an obvious tip, but dirt and grime can accumulate, clogging up applicable systems and causing you major problems.
  • The idea of camping out might seem appealing, however, you should refrain from driving your pop-up camper throughout the year. Due to their design, these campers cannot be used continuously.
  • When the weather gets cold, it is time to pack up your camper. It’s okay to enjoy your camper during the summer and even until spring.
