The Honda Element is the ultimate basic box and the Jeep Wrangler is a hard top vehicle with a die-hard following. Now they can accommodate streamlined and versatile popups that turn both vehicles into campers.

The conversions include a two-person bed and nearly 7 feet of headroom.

Ursa Minor Vehicles’s ECamper™ conversion adds a popup sleeper for two adults onto any Honda Element. This innovative design combines carbon-fiber material and the latest in composites technology to minimize weight.

Its streamlined profile adds only six inches to the overall height of the vehicle. However, when the popup is extended, you’ll gain nearly seven feet of extra headroom inside.

The ECamper™ is streamlined and stealthy when not popped open.


The ECamper™ conversion also includes a comfortable 7×4 foot mattress which is accessed from inside the vehicle, gas spring assisted hinges, LED lighting, and Sunbrella® canvas soft walls that are breathable, fade and water resistant. There are also options for racks, matching vehicle paint, and power outlets.

The ECamper™ bed can be accessed from inside the Element.


The ECamper™ conversion starts at around $5,650 and goes to $8,550 depending on your chosen options. The Ursa Minor Vehicles website allows you to build your virtual camper online with options like a solar charging system and a Gobi rear ladder.

The Jeep Camper conversions include a hard top pop-up that can support bike and gear racks.


The Jeep Camper conversions include two different pop-up options. The J30 Pop Up Camper is the basic model that sleeps two adults on a 7×4 foot mattress and hard top that can support gear like bikes, kayaks, skis, and surfboards.

The Jeep Camper also includes a 7×4 foot mattress.


The J180 Fold Over Camper is more robust and includes a bed platform that opens over the hood and can sleep up to four adults. The Fold Over Camper has over seven feet of standing room and 56 square feet of living space.

The walls are made with Australian Coolabah canvas and can be accessed from inside or outside the vehicle. The tent also allows for panoramic views with zippered screen windows on all four sides.

The J180 Fold Over Camper can sleep up to four adults.


Turn your favorite vehicle into a pop-up camper and hit the road!


The J30 Pop Up camper conversion starts at $6,050 and goes to $10,050. The J180 Fold Over Camper conversion starts at around $9,800 and goes to $12,400. Again, you can use the Ursa Minor website to customize your own conversion.
