Continuing our tradition of designing purposeful high-quality equipment for overland travel, AT Overland Equipment unveils the all-new Summit TM truck top camper. The Summit TM provides a durable, insulated and lightweight wedge-style pop-up shell for today’s fuel-efficient trucks, while still leaving room for individual customization. The Summit TM sleeps two with enough interior room for one to stand when another person is in the bed. The Summit TM can be deployed with 100 lbs. of cargo on the roof.
Filling the void between the traditional truck topper and slide-in camper, one person can easily open the cavernous and functional interior in 30 seconds. 8 feet of headroom is available under the insulated composite roof at the highest point, with 6 feet at the lowest point.
The 340 lb Summit TM is made from the same lightweight aluminum and honeycomb composite as the proven Habitat TM topper. This advanced construction provides insulation while adding strength and a surface that can be fitted with flush-threaded fasteners for attaching a variety of gear. Opening and closing is facilitated by robust gas springs and remains stable in event of high winds or snow loads. The locking rear liftgate and top-latches keep gear secure. Double pane acrylic windows and skylights are available to let light in and keep weather out. These Euro-style openings feature retractable bug screens and thermal curtains. For external gear access, upward-opening weathertight locking cargo doors are available.
The 48″x 80″ (the length of a queen size bed) sleeping platform features a 2.5″ thick mattress that pivots upwards assisted by gas springs. Out of the way when not in use, it easily pulls down when it’s time for bed. There is enough room between the sleeping platform and the closed roof of the Summit TM to leave bedding in place, making the Summit TM amazingly convenient to use and easy to deploy. With the sleeping platform lowered, the remaining open standing area of 48″ x 38″ allows another person to move around in the truck bed or access the sleeping platform without disturbing the sleeper.
The Summit TM features a durable fire-retardant canvas tent that is breathable and waterproof. For cold weather, an optional fire-retardant, light-blocking, Thinsulate TM liner is available with matching window openings and a R value of 1.4 (34º to 36º heat retention). This thoughtful combination of materials makes the Summit TM a comfortable space, whatever the weather.
