About 10-years ago, Alu-Cab noticed a gap in the 4×4 rental market; essentially, a need for a lightweight, versatile, mid-range camper solution.
In many respects, the safari rental market in Africa is the ideal testing ground for overland gear, and after exhaustive development, we designed a camper that combined the best of both worlds: it had the lightweight and low-profile benefits of a modular canopy, combined with the versatility and spacious living quarters of a camper.
An easy-access vertical door with heavy-duty hinges, and the ability to mount a 33" spare wheel on the back with the addition of the Spare Wheel Bracket. This rear door design eliminates dust and water intrusion commonly found with other Tacoma canopy campers.
This canopy camper utilizes proprietary extrusions that are used throughout the construction for drill-free vehicle installation and fitment of accessories.
This truck bed camper utilizes tried and true dual-layer ripstop canvas for optimal insulation along with a seamless design to prevent leaks.
Improved 150mm tall bed area provides ample room for 75mm closed cell foam mattress and additional bedding to be easily stored in place while closed.
This Canopy Camper features integrated roof rails to facilitate the mount of various rooftop accessories.
Oversized side gullwing doors allow unobstructed access to gear and airflow while in camp.
Industry exclusive standard electrical package includes five National Luna dual color LED lights, USD & 12v Chargers and Solar Pre-wire to make installation of solar panels plug and play.

From the factory, the Alu-Cab Canopy Camper comes pre-wired for solar. This includes a convenient Anderson SB50 Plug that is mounted to the roof exterior. While the Alu-Cab Canopy Camper can accept any solar, we have worked with Sunflare to produce panels that are optimized for the available roof space while still accommodating a pair of load bars.
One of Alu-Cab's best selling products, the Shadow Awning has become the standard in vehicle awnings for its fast deployment and incredible strength while remaining lightweight. The Shadow Awning is only available in left hand configuration for the Canopy Camper. The Shadow Awn Mounting Brackets and Deflector is required to install the Shadow Awning.
A must-have addition for the adventurer who finds themselves using the Shadow Awning in all types of conditions is the gutter kit. This kit enables one to close the gap between vehicle and awning. This way further sealing the user from those stormy conditions. The Shadow Awning is required to install the Shadow Awning Gutter.Shower
Interior Canvas Storage Solutions
Lightweight and versatile these canvas storage pockets offer great options to store all your gear.
The Mozzie or Midgie net is a practical accessory used on our Canopy Campers to keep bugs and insects out of your vehicle while allowing fresh air inside. It is attached to the interior of the side doors with self-adhesive Velcro. They are designed with a heavy-duty canvas cover to provide additional insulation in colder temps (the same material as our Alu-Cab Tents), which can be rolled up, exposing the netting material only. Alternatively, the netting window can be zipped open and rolled up, providing an open window.
Exterior & Interior Table
Alu-Cab’s aluminum camping table like most of our products is built almost entirely from aluminum. The bonus of this, is it keeps the weight down but as usual still offers the strength Alu-Cab is known for. Built from a strong aluminum frame with legs that jump into position via gas struts it almost eliminates the effort to set up. The table top is made from rigidised aluminum that helps to prevent scratching. It’s a must have product for all campers! The Table Slide is required to install the aluminum table under the overhang of the canopy camper.
If you want the aluminum table, you will need the table slide. The table slide installs below the canopy camper above the cab of the vehicle. This allows you to quickly deploy and stow the table.
GP Factor Rear Door Drop Table and Cutting Board
Add versatility to your Alu-Cab Canopy Camper! The GP-Factor Drop Table comes with 3/16 stainless rivets for installation. The table is made from complete stainless pieces with a zinc 1/2" pull tab latch.
Rear Molle Panels
This accessory uses the unique space created by our rear door design, allowing endless mounting opportunities on the back of the Canopy Camper. This is especially important for items like Fuel, Propane and other items not welcomed inside the living space of your camper.
Spare Wheel Bracket
The Canopy Camper Spare wheel bracket has a multi stud universal PCD layout to fit all OEM wheel holes. We’ve added an adjustable section that can fit various wheel offsets and gives you the ability to tighten the wheel against the wheel carrier. This clamping feature allows the wheel to be securely held in place and removes any vibrations that can lead to part failure and further injuries to vehicles behind you.
Expedition Essentials 11lb Propane Tank Mount
The PQBM is a secure quick opening and locking solution for mounting the commonly used 11lb and 5lb propane bottles from Flame King and Worthington. Quick opening single turn access by way of a special key and compression lock. Constructed from .125 5052 Aluminum for strength and increased weight savings. Powder coated black for corrosion resistance and a perfect match for the Canopy Camper. Requires the Rear MOLLE Panels to install.
Load Bars and Feet
Alu-Cab Load Bars feature a proprietary triple T slot profile and attach directly to the standard integrated roof channels for a low profile. Perfect for attaching your favorite toys and bringing them along for the adventure.
