I previously owned a 4WC Fleet. Had it on a 2007 Taco and regrettably sold it. When I was looking for another pop up camper, I knew better what I wanted and needed because of my experience with the Fleet. I have big plans and requirements for the camper over the next 10 years and was looking for something custom to met my requirements.
But Four Wheel Campers have grown massively in just the last few years, and they are no longer able to do custom work. They have shifted to a more efficient production line model as they are pushing more campers out the door to meet the increasing demand.
So without hesitation I called Jeff and Marty at ATC. I have seen their workmanship and talked to enough owners to know they do quality work. ATC have remained small because they don't want to become corporate and all the BS that goes with that. They want to keep the personalized contact with their customers and they take pride in their work.
I'm going off topic a bit, but I'm trying to make a point. In 2008/09 I rode my motorcycle to Ushuaia, at the southern tip of South America, and back to eastern Canada. I was gone for 9 months, but one week after I got back my fancy BMW R1200GS Adventurer wouldn't start and I had to trailer it two hours to the nearest dealership. It took them 6 weeks to diagnose, order in, and replace the faulty electrical part. They hadn't seen that issue preciously. If I had had that brakedown a few months earlier in the jungles of Brazil, the bike would still be there. Lesson learned.
ATC is the pop up camper company that keeps it simple, and they do what they know works. When I first started talking to them about my desired build, they wanted to know more details before they agreed to build it. They are not attracted by the new shinny objects. New products are constantly being introduced, and sometimes those work as promised. But if you want something that's trusted, proven, reliable, and if you are going off road any distance – you probably do, then you can't go wrong with ATC.
