When we started camping in our camper - I was amazed at how many people thought that the truck campers had very little room and that they were not equipped with all the amenities as larger campers.
I agree the truck campers are compact and I would recommend that the maximum number of people for a truck camper is two. Which is perfect for my hubby and I.
Here is the floor plan for our camper. We have stove, oven, microwave, toilet, shower,
flat screen TV with cable and satellite connectors, stereo inside and out, good size closet space and storage, queen size bed, good size compact fridge, AC, heat, a outside shower for use to clean items and great for cleaning off the dog, power awning over the door, and a power awning along the entire side of the camper.
Our camper is also equipped with power lifters that will automatically lift the camper off of our truck. Everything that is movable is powered.
Here is a pic of the inside of our camper. As you can see - plenty of room for two.
We enjoy the outside and spend the majority of our time outside while camping. We had a back door awning and also a side awning added to our camper. We love to sit and watch nature and people. Here is a pic of our camper during our last camping trip. The awning makes a nice area to sit under and relax. We also added a chair rack to our ladder and a hitch cargo carrier to our truck hitch. They rack and cargo carrier give us room to travel with our chairs, generator, and tote for grill and other items.
We have owned a Forest River Camper for over 14 years - we have never had any trouble with it. So when it came time to purchase a truck camper - we knew the brand we wanted. Palomino RV is a subsidiary of Forest River. A company you can trust for quality products.
We purchased our camper from Kramer's Kampers in Zion, Il. Zion is north of Chicago along Lake Michigan. Everyone at Kramer's Kampers is friendly and very helpful...I highly recommend them as the place to purchase a camper if you live in SE Wisconsin or NE Illinois.
Twenty days till we head to Yellowstone for two weeks! Make sure to stop back to read about our trip.
Were you surprised at the amenities a truck camper has to offer?
