Ever since we posted our 2011 Denver ISE Show Report, we have been inundated with requests for more pictures of the Coyote RV P.U.L.S.E. This is much the same reaction the P.U.L.S.E. received at the show.
The P.U.L.S.E. is actually not a camper, but rather a concept. The acronym stands for Phoenix Ultralight Living and Sleeping Extension and can be made for just about anything from trucks to SUVs. For the 2011 Denver ISE, Coyote RV built a P.U.L.S.E. for a Jeep JK provided by Nemesis Industries.
For the Jeep JK, the P.U.L.S.E. attaches exactly where the factory removable roof attaches. You can literally remove the factory roof and install the P.U.L.S.E. using the same latches and bolts. In the above photos you can see the front latches, rear bolts, and how tight the installation is once completed.
Like any other Coyote pop-up truck camper, the top on the P.U.L.S.E. uses Coyote’s patented manual pop-up roof lift system. What’s different about the P.U.L.S.E. concept is the exceptionally low profile complemented by a specially designed P.U.L.S.E. aerodynamic front nose. When closed, the P.U.L.S.E. is designed to look like a factory installed extension of the vehicle, not a add-on camper.
There’s not a lot of room to walk around in the Jeep JK version of the P.U.L.S.E., but that’s not the point here. What you have to remember is that this particular P.U.L.S.E. is built onto a Jeep JK with the rear seats in place. There’s no reason why you couldn’t use the Jeep JK as a daily driver with the P.U.L.S.E. installed. In these pictures you can see the 12-volt refrigerator, battery box, and porta-potty (still in the box).
Just above the floor, the Jeep JK P.U.L.S.E. has a Wave 6 catalytic heater. From what some of the show attendees told us, the Wave 6 can pump out enough heat to practically float the P.U.L.S.E. into the atmosphere. In other words, you won’t be cold.
On the opposite side is the combination propane range top and sink. When people saw this their mouths dropped. Imagine, you’re out in the middle of nowhere after conquering a monster trail cooking breakfast in the back of your Jeep. Awesome.
Looking back from the driver’s seat there’s really no indication that anything’s different with the back seats right where they should be. Of course the roof is all P.U.L.S.E., but the Jeep JK roll bars are still in place.
Standing up in the back of the Jeep JK P.U.L.S.E., you start to get what this product is all about. There’s the range sink combination on the right and the sleeping area in front of you. Look closely and you’ll see the wood frame that unfolds to create a queen size sleeping area for the Insta-Bed air mattress. You may be in the middle of nowhere, but you’re comfortable.
The P.U.L.S.E. may not be a traditional truck camper, but it’s quickly demountable and stores on a stand that Coyote provides with each P.U.L.S.E. Some may disagree, but we believe this and other removable Jeep campers are an exciting development in the truck camper marketplace.
Of course P.U.L.S.E. isn’t just for Jeep JKs. Have a Ford F-150 and want a P.U.L.S.E.? Coyote RV can P.U.L.S.E. that. Maybe you have a Toyota Tacoma? Coyote RV can P.U.L.S.E. that too. How about a two-door Jeep? Yes, Coyote RV can even P.U.L.S.E. a two door Jeep. And if you don’t mind them cutting the roof out, they can put a P.U.L.S.E. into just about anything. P.U.L.S.E. Smart Car? Hmmm…
Congratulations to Robby and Cari Rowe for bringing the P.U.L.S.E. to life.
