A motorcycle road trip is a beautiful way to travel and see the country. But rather than put a motorcycle on a trailer and haul it behind your RV, some folks prefer to drive the motorcycle and haul campers for motorcycles trailer behind it.

That’s precisely where popup campers for motorcycles come into play. There are plenty of lightweight pop-up campers and teardrop campers for motorcycles on the market, but which are the best?

Well, read on to see our list of the best popup campers for motorcycles!

What Are Popup Campers for Motorcycles? 

People who want to experience the open road on a motorcycle and camp along the way will love the popup or bunkhouse motorcycle camper. And quite frankly, I’m surprised I don’t see more of these on the road. Anyone with a larger motorcycle can tow these campers, which can comfortably sleep up to two people.

A motorcycle camper or bunkhouse camper is a pop-up camper. When folded down, it looks like a motorcycle cargo trailer. When you arrive at your campsite, you set it up just like you would a pop-up tent. You can also carry extra camping gear inside the pop-up while you are hauling it, which makes it very convenient.

The 6 Best Campers for Motorcycles

Campers for Motorcycles have come a long way, and each year, more options seem to be available. For 2024, these are six of the best campers for motorcycles.

Each offers a soft place to sleep and some additional storage space. Each is designed to be towed by a motorcycle, so they have safety in mind in their design and engineering.

1. Kwik Kamp II

Kwik Kamp II campers for motorcycles

✅ King-size bed, extra floor space, A/C port
❌ Fairly heavy

  • Length:121”
  • UVW: 340 lbs
  • GVWR: 700 lbs
  • CCC: 360 lbs
  • Tounge Weight: 20 lbs

This two-person pop-up camper is a versatile option for motorcycle travel. Though one of the larger motorcycle campers available, the Kwik Kamp II is roomy and comfortable. The king-size bed gives you plenty of space to spread out for a good night’s sleep.

The additional covered floor space is handy for changing and storing shoes and gear. This camper is easy to set up for two people, taking under 10 minutes. The camper comes with a rain fly, large windows for airflow, and an air conditioner port for extra comfort on those hot days.

The Kwik Kamp II comes with a tongue jack, 4 stabilizer jacks, and a swivel coupler for a more comfortable experience. The tent portion of this camper can be removed from the trailer, allowing you to use the body as a covered cargo trailer if you need it.

2. Solace Deluxe

Solace Deluxe campers for motorcycles

✅ Lots of space, large but not overly heavy
❌ Doesn’t have a foam mattress, assembly required

  • Length:104”
  • UVW: 385 lbs
  • GVWR: 835 lbs
  • CCC: 450 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 20 lbs

The Solace Deluxe is a surprising option for motorcycle campers. This camper keeps you fully off the ground while providing plenty of space for sleeping and relaxing. Inside, you will find a sleeping space that accommodates a queen air mattress and a dining area where you can hunker down when the weather is crummy.

The Solace Deluxe also gives you additional storage on the tongue for coolers or other small containers. The aluminum construction keeps this camper light enough for many touring motorcycles to comfortably manage.

3. Time Out Deluxe

Time Out Deluxe camper

✅ Wider sleeping area, quick set up, attractive trailer
❌ No foam mattress

  • Length: 104”
  • UVW: 385 lbs
  • GVWR: 785 lbs
  • CCC: 400 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 20 lbs

Time Out offers motorcycle owners a line of towable campers. The Deluxe is their largest option and offers plenty of space for two people to sleep and eat comfortably. The Time Out Deluxe comes in an attractive aluminum trailer that securely holds the tent, table, and folding chair, all of which are included.

Even with all of this gear, the trailer has plenty of space for other cargo. The tongue has a convenient cooler mount, allowing you to easily access snacks and drinks while traveling.

The Time Out Deluxe is super easy to set up, taking one person less than 10 minutes. This is great if you are traveling alone and need shelter in a hurry. This trailer is a little pricy, but given the included features, is not unreasonable.

4. Sylvansport TrailLOFT

Sylvan Sport Trail Loft

✅ Fast set-up, solid roof, plenty of cargo space
❌ Small sleeping area, heavy

  • Length: 134”
  • UVW: 352 lbs
  • GVWR: 832 lbs
  • CCC: 480 lbs
  • Tounge Weight: 25 lbs

The SylvanSport Trailoft is a great option if you have a larger touring bike, and do not mind a snug sleeping space. This hard-shell camper offers you a quick and easy set-up thanks to 4 hydraulic lift arms.

You will enjoy sleeping on a comfortable foam pad that keeps you warm and wipes away condensation. The window screens keep out bugs while providing plenty of ventilation for warm evenings.

All your cargo can be stored in the trailer below the tent, providing easy access to essentials, even when traveling. The Trailoft also comes with a light ladder and 2 jack stands.

5. Roll-A-Home

Roll-A-Home campers for motorcycles

✅ Smaller trailer, larger tent options, optional king bed
❌ Many features are optional add-ons

  • Length: 78”
  • UVW: 325 lbs
  • GVWR: 800 lbs
  • CCC: 475 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 30 lbs

If you are looking for a lighter camper for your motorcycle, but still want to carry plenty of gear the Roll-A-Home is a nice option. This pop-up camper, though a bit smaller, is lightweight but offers plenty of cargo capacity.

This camper has a fiberglass body, which makes it lighter than other similar campers. It comes in a standard queen bed layout, or you can go for the larger, king-size wide bed option. Both campers provide you with added covered floor space, which can be used to store gear, as a covered seating area, or as a dressing room.

This camper also provides plenty of extra space for your gear when packed in. Select the optional storage box for the tongue, and your gear-carrying capacity will increase even more.

6. SunLite Excel

Suun Lite Excel campers for motorcycles

✅ Quick set-up, fun colors, foam mattress
❌ Only a double bed, not much storage space

  • Length: 66”
  • UVW: 330 lbs
  • GVWR: 825 lbs
  • CCC: 495 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 33 lbs

If you want to have a motorcycle camper that goes together quickly, check out the Excel trailers from SunLite. These are a really quick and easy pop-up motorcycle camper. If you need more proof, than our words, check out the video on their website.

This camper takes less than five minutes for one person to set up. The key to this speed is that the tent is fully assembled in the box and attaches to the frame and lid. The disadvantage to this camper is that you do not have a ton of added storage space.

This tent is also made from extra heavy-duty fabric and has nice side flaps that prevent rain between the tent and the frame.

How Much Do Campers for Motorcycles Weigh?

Camping trailers for motorcycles weigh in at around 250-400 pounds. They vary based on size and amenities. The smallest, most basic pop-ups are going to weigh the least.

They’ll offer you a space to rest your head and a spot to hold your gear. But what if you want add-ons like headspace, a sink, maybe even extra storage? With these, you’ll be pushing the maximum of about 400 pounds.

How Much Weight Can My Motorcycle Tow?

The typical road trip motorcycle can tow a decent amount. On average, these bikes are capable of hauling 350-450 pounds. There’s an easy trick to finding out for sure.

Determine the maximum full-loaded operating weight as specified by your bike’s manufacturer. Subtract the net weight of your motorcycle as it will be ridden. The resulting number is your motorcycle’s safe tow weight.

Final Words About Popup Campers for Motorcycles

In conclusion, motorcycle campers are ideal for enjoying an outdoor camping experience while on the road. They are lightweight, towable, compact, and inexpensive. They are a great way to camp and enjoy the freedom of the outdoors.  Since they are small, maintenance and cleaning are minimal while you are enjoying your camping lifestyle.

Therefore, take the time to understand your camping needs so you can find the best type of motorcycle camper that will fit your lifestyle.  Do yourself a favor and invest in a quality popup camper or bunkhouse for your motorcycle. With a tent camper in tow and your bike in gear, you’ll have everything you need in life.

  3. Morning,
    I would like to know if anybody makes a sidecar pop-up camper? If so who, where?
    thank you

  4. To the people that are in need of a canopy, you could try a company that makes tarps for semi trailers, hope this helps.

  5. Not big fan of sleeping in air or putting my shoes on in wet grass.That said ,I read this article and others. Chose lees-uer lite excel.Weight is low (went with alum wheels) running 80 ci evo.

  6. Just got back from Colorado pulling my XL Bunkhouse with my 2014 Goldwing.. Tows great but heavy on the brakes over the passes….. Smelly brakes… Think I need to go to camper brakes… Rotor brakes or hub brakes….. ?

  7. I have an 87 Timeout that has stood the test of time! Still original tent cover. Takes about twice as long to set up as a new one, but still not more than 15 minutes. Now that I no longer ride my Goldwing, I pull it with my Tacoma 4×4 and carry my Honda Ruckus scooter on a front carrier. Loads of fun to take this rig out camping! And can readily go across country with it too!

  8. I have a bunk house camper and need to replace the canvas. Who can I contact to see how mich and where I can find one.

    • Hi Carolyn,
      This might sound weird but boat canvas cover companies and awning companies are probably your best bet.
      Be sure to get several quotes but they can custom fit to your camper.
      Let me know how you make out.

    • Go to the bunkhouse group on Facebook. Gail Huff-Morgan can make you one. She worked for Bunkhouse. She also makes add a rooms, canopy and AC sleeves

  9. What happened to the Bunkhouse motorcycle camping trailer that was manufactured by Bushtec? Did they go out of business?

  10. Iso camper cover that attaches with Velcro. Our size is 44″ x 68″.

    • Hi Shiela,
      I would try calling the manufacturer of the popup camper to see if they can make you a cover. If that doesn’t work I would try a boat cover company or an awning company and see if they can customize one to your specifications.
