For part-time RV enthusiasts who already have a pick-up truck, sometimes a truck camper is the perfect compromise. For a fraction of the price of a motorhome, you can add most of the RV features to the back of your two- or four-door pickup truck. And, when youre not camping, just slide the camper cap off and youve got your open-bed pickup ready for a trip to the lumber yard.
Flexibility is the strongest point of the truck camper. With four-wheel-drive, a truck camper can generally go a lot farther off the beaten path than most other, larger RVs. Youll likely have a small sink, toilet, stove, refrigerator, some storage cabinets, and a bed positioned over the truck cab. Some may even have a shower, TV and microwave.
Outdoor enthusiasts love the maneuverability and convenience of a truck camper, especially for short trips. Some feature a pop-up roof design for additional headroom, while keeping a lower profile while driving.
