- With the boom in pickup sales,
adding a camper is an easy, economical way for many first-timers
to begin RVing.
- Truck campers combine the best
benefits of the self-contained motorhome with those
of a towable trailer.
- Compact size makes the truck camper
a versatile, manageable and convenient
RV for local travel to and from the campsite.
- At home or at the final travel
destination, the camping unit can
be detached and set on its own jacks allowing pickup
truck to be used separately.
- Truck campers are made in a wide
array of sizes with floor plans that provide a variety of
options such as toilets, showers, kitchen facilities, air-conditioners
and pop-up roofs.
- Traditionally built for efficient
use of space, maximizing living and storage areas has not
been a priority for truck camper buyers. However, with today's
manufacturers offering a wide range of floor plans and options
such as extended cabovers, truck campers can be more spacious
than ever before.
