Our Weekender Model

A Minimalist’s Camper with Maximum possibilities

The Weekender takes its name from some of the earliest campers designed. It provides a perfect weekend getaway with just the essentials while leaving ample open interior space for larger toys like bikes, surfboards, and skis.  Our Weekender model has the same low profile aerodynamic roomy poptop,  rear convertible seat/bed system, spacious under seat drawers, rear box and interior/exterior table as our iconic ENVY model.  


The Recon Weekender leaves a semi-blank slate for custom storage solutions.  It is wide open between the sliding doors leaving room for two floor mounted front wheel off bike racks.  There is 11" to 14" wide space next to the seat/ bed leaving room for a portable fridge, portable toilet, one bike (wheels on), surfboards up to 6'3", large luggage, backpacks, duffel bags, cooler, etc. 


If you are the DIY type and love extra storage but don't want the exact layout of our ENVY, the Weekender provides a great platform to add your own creations.  From rear slide out kitchens complete with portable coolers or DC fridges, to simple extra storage with cushions on top for a wider bed. Your imagination is the only limit!

New for 2021: The Weekender is now pre-wired to run the lights off a portable power station which can be mounted behind the driver seat.  You can charge your power station off Nissan's 12 volt socket while driving. Depending on the capacity of your power station you can run a small portable fridge, charge laptops and other small 110 volt devices. 


This camper offers maximum flexibility for a comfortable escape to the great outdoors.

Grab your gear and get outside!

We completely redesigned every part of our poptop.  The new fiberglass poptop  is manufactured to balance strength and weight with custom resin-infused honeycomb composite technology. The new super low-profile shape has been designed for more clearance and a stealth sleek look.

The Weekender under seat drawers and rear storage chest are made from our durable, premium, ultra-scratch resistant wood and laminate in a classic gloss grey finish. Industrial wood laminate flooring and trim-panels are installed over additional layers of acoustic and thermal insulation. Ample floor space provides endless gear storage and DIY layouts.



Our poptop tents are the tallest in the industry at over 40” tall inside the upper bunk providing plenty of room to sit up and move around.  When the bedboard is lifted, you'll have over 7 feet of standing room. Our poptops transform a nimble compact van into a spacious camper. We increased the size of the 3 tent windows, now they can open fully or screened for maximum airflow and views.

Our tents feature first in the industry zipper attachment systems for quick removal.  Now tent repairs or replacements are a simple DIY job rather than our competitors’ more-permanent, bolted-down + glued tent system which can cost thousands to remove to repair or replace.

Recon Campers ™ 2 person in vehicle safety tested custom rear bench seat folds flat into a 42" wide x 72" long lower bed, and can also be set up as a forward or rear facing lounger.

Multi-density foam with a honeycomb breather layer keeps you comfortable and cool when sleeping.  (portable fridge not included)



All our awnings have custom black powder coated cases for durability and a sleek clean look. What’s more, the canopy material can be dropped vertically, doubling as a movie screen for portable projectors



Standard on all ENVY and Weekender builds, our custom 9 layer radiant, thermal, acoustic magnetic window covers provide black-out privacy, thermal, and sound regulation
