13 Best Truck Campers With Pictures

If you’re looking to go on a trip around the country and you feel like hotels and resorts may leave a big dent in your pocket, truck campers might be just the solution for you. They are convenient mobile homes that you can hook up to the bed of your full-size or mid-size truck.

If you do not know what to look for, finding that perfect truck camper can be rather difficult. There are several important features that you need to make sure to look out for as you select the right camper for you, including dry and gross vehicle weight, the dimensions, its floor plan, the water tank capacities, the indoor and outdoor storage space available, and so on.

Hitting the road shouldn’t mean giving up the luxuries you have become accustomed to enjoying in a stationary home. Getting the right set of features will also mean getting the right value for the money you spend on a unit. Some of these luxury features include the presence of an entertainment system, the size of the fridge, and the bathroom size.
