New to pop ups

Me and my finance recently purchased our first camper. We have used it only twice this year, only had it a month so far, but we were wondering what is the coldest temp that we can safely pop the camper up and not crack the vinyl?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your popup. It might be a good idea to turn on the furnace to warm up the fabric a little before you fold it down. Another thing is you also have to be concerned about water freezing. Here's a link to a popup forum you might be interested in: PopUp Explorer - Index

We've camped in ~5 degrees F many times over the years. Never a problem. Just go slow and fold carefully. We use a soft broom to push in the canvas when putting the top down.

I don't know when we'll be able to go camping again...
