Back when I was a boy our family had one of these, of course my Dad who keeps everything still has the brochure. I scanned and put it up, thought you all might enjoy seeing an original "outback"

1968 Gypsy by Universal Camper Mfg.

Thanks for that post, you brought back a flood of memories.

When I was a boy our family camped in a Nimrod pop-up. It was nothing more then a canvas tent on wheels to be honest but I have a lot of fond memories of those trips. That it why I am into camping now. I hope my kids can look back on our trips with fond memories.

Excellent!
I have noticed some of the new style trailers are reverting back to some of these features. Very nostalgic and cool.

I grew up camping in my parent's 1972 volkswagen camper with the popup roof. Had a lot of great trips in that camper. We got pulled over in Ohio one time for going 58 in a 55 zone, the trooper thought we were a bunch of hippies and was very relieved to see it was a family of four and sent us on our way.

I echo what camperDC says about the great memories and trying to give some to our kids.
