    We just purchased a Bushtec Bunkhouse Motorcycle Camper (new to us) and are in the process of getting it "road ready". This is our first foray into pop up camping and towing behind a motorcycle. We're looking forward to learning a lot and sharing what we learn with others. Home Base is Arizona.

    Welcome from northern Virginia. I was camping once in Maine and I got to talking to the trolly driver at Acadia NP. He has a motorcycle camper himself and was showing me pictures of it. On his, it was big enough for one person to sleep with a little gear in the floor compartment. The way he talked you can tell he enjoyed it.

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome from all of you. Right now, the camper is set up in my small garage and I'm not sure that I can get a decent picture, but I will try! This particular Bunkhouse camper is called an XL and can sleep 2 (or 3 close friends - LOL) on a king-sized bed. It's a 2016 and is in pretty good shape. The former owner only took about 6 trips with it - but (unfortunately) stored it outside under a tree - so there's a lot of clean up to do. We are taking it out in a couple of weeks for a dry run. We've been looking at them for almost 5 years and decided to take the plunge!

    Welcome from N/W Fl Panhandle. Congrats on the MC PUP, it would be a little crowded for me, but either way it beats sleeping on the cold or wet ground. Good Luck and Happy Camping

    Thanks nineoaks2004! We've been tent campers for years, so the M/C PUP is a step up for us!

    Welcome. Thought about a bunkhouse to tow with our Goldwing but went with a standard mc cargo trailer and hotels instead. Now have Rockwood Freedom with Escape towvehicle and no way to take Goldwing. :-(
