As truck camper specialists, people often ask us why you would want a truck camper over a trailer or fifth wheel. They seem smaller and can even be more expensive - so what gives?
The reality is, truck campers are amazing RV's! They have a ton of benefits that can suit a variety of lifestyles without giving up any features or functionality of a towable trailer.
So here are our top benefits of owning a truck camper:
1. Most Versatile RV
There are no restrictions when driving with a truck camper. You could be up North camping on the weekend and park it downtown Toronto on your way home to catch a Jays game. It truly gives you the freedom to go camping anywhere, and also give you flexibility to do anything you want in between.
2. Extremely Low Maintenance Costs
Truck campers are the cheapest RVs to maintain! Since they aren't towed, you don't have any tire, bearing, or suspension maintenance that you normally would get with a trailer.
3. Very Easy to Store
What do you do with your trailer when you are not using it? Truck campers are so compact they can easily be stored on most properties, either in the driveway, garage or even yard. This makes it easy to grab it and go whenever you want and also saves on storage costs.
4. You Can Still Tow Behind
Do you like to fish or go boating or ride on an offroad vehcile? Since a truck camper isn't being towed, you still have the option to tow a boat or other vehicle behind your truck when your camper is on it. Your vacation just doubled in fun activities available!
5. Smooth Driving
Say goodbye to towing a large trailer or fifth wheel. The truck camper is a much nicer driving experience that is really no different than just driving a truck. No more fishtailing on the highway and having difficulty making certain turns. You also don't have the hassle of hooking a trailer on a hitch.
6. Getting Lost in the Woods
Do you like to camp deep in the woods? Have you ever tried towing a trailer on the off-beaten path? It probably didn't go very well. Truck campers are great for hunting and people who like to go deep into the woods because these campers don't need a lot of space to squeeze through areas and can handle rugged terrain.
7. Don't Sacrifice Quality
Have you ever been inside a truck camper? They have all the features as any other trailer as well as the same great quality!
So what are you waiting for? Don't overlook a truck camper the next time you are looking to buy. These are just a few of the many benefits that will make you fall in love with the truck camper lifestyle.
