Why is it called a kip-up?
I could not find evidence that the term kip has Chinese origins. First used as an Irish slang term meaning brothel it was later used to refer to a place where one sleeps and then as noun and verb that refer to taking a nap: The ultimate source is probably the Danish word kippe for a hut or a mean alehouse.
