Has anyone slept in the topper part of their camper? Like they were stealth camping and did not want to pop open the camper. I’m wondering how the ventilation is in there. I’ve seen some people make mods with positive pressure valves but I’d rather not cut right into my new topper right off the bat. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
I have gaps around my tailgate and factory holes in the front of the bed and that gives plenty ventilation. Or, it’s as easy as slightly propping open a corner of a panel. It doesn’t look too conspicuous
One thing you can do is unlock one side of the side panels and keep the other locked so it they are slightly cracked. Great for if you have dogs too.
I often don’t close my rear hatch completely (sometimes a pain to open on cold mornings due to seal at bottom) anyhow that would be my go to, if I was worried a little rope tied to something to slow down people would work
I have slept “downstairs” quite a bit. Sometimes for stealth camping and other times due to bad weather. I get some condensation but it dries out quickly once I’m not in there breathing it out. As others have mentioned the rear hatch and tailgates are often not really sealed that well so there is plenty of opportunity for air exchange.
I have, you’ll be fine. Sleeping in the camper is actually nice and quiet compared to the tent upstairs.
This is great feedback thank you all so much! Making me feel even better about getting one of these babies. Cheers
