I've had a chance to check out a few Four Wheel Campers (although not this one - that's a sweet setup!). I don't know what kind of internal bracing/frame they use for the upper bed area, but they seemed pretty solid and well built. For a basic folding truck camper they seem to be one of the higher quality ones out there.

I had an older Palomino pop-up truck camper, and even as cheaply as it was made I never had any concerns with the strength of the overhead bed - there just isn't enough room up there for a very large person/couple, and any "activities" would be pretty limited for most normal people.

NOW: 1996 XJ, 4.0/AW4/NP242. 1.5" spacer/shackle lift, 30x9.50's, open both ends

GONE: 1998 TJ, 4.0/5-speed. Currie lift. D44/HP D30, 4.88s, Detroits, Tera 4:1, 2-low. 35" MTRs
