    Has anybody camped with only one side of their pop-up extended? Seems I've seen it mentioned but I can't seem to find anything on it or more likely not wording my search right. Pure curiosity so no sweat, thanks.

    I’ve seen where someone has also removed a bunkend all together and replaced the canvas With a straight piece much like the clipper in the above picture. That was like on Pinterest or something though. The issue I see is you don’t want to remove the front bunk as it could lighten the tongue load too much unless you compensate the weight somehow. I personally use the second bunk as storage space and close it off.

    In my travels I have seen a few pups open up one slide out for some quick shut-eye while traveling long distances. Early rise and shine and back on the road I assumed. Usually younger military families.

    The biggest issue, other than the bunk blocking half the inside, is that the canvas won’t seal hanging loose. So any rain or bugs will come right in.
