Finding a Truck Camper to be a happy camper

For the last two months, I am have been searching for a truck camper which will fulfill my requirements based on my lifestyle and camping needs. In this blog post, I am going to highlight some of the difficulties I have been through and maybe it will help somebody who has similar requirements or they are new to truck camping world or want to find one article which mentions it all.

Requirements;

I am looking for a truck camper which;

  • A low footprint (non-slide)
  • Dry bath
  • LP Generator
  • Backup camera
  • 2-way power to the air conditioner
  • 3-way power to the refrigerator
  • Keyless entry
  • Entertainment system

Believe it or not, I was not able to find a single manufacturer who has thought of the requirements mentioned above. A few days ago I was watching a YouTube, the video was about “how to choose your RV” and in the video, they mentioned that you will never RV which fulfills your requirements. You always have to compromise and I think the same applies to truck campers.
