The Mobile Tiny House
So, I’ll admit, truck campers are tiny. There’s no way around it, there just isn’t enough space in the vast majority of truck campers to compete with say… even a Class B motorhome. However, there is just enough space that a few people can work and live comfortably with a few modifications, a lot of patience, and the ability to follow the weather. A snowy, cold winter in a truck camper… no thank you. But these are the kind of rigs made for amazing weather, great adventures, and nights spent around a campfire.
More Space Than It Seems
We chose this particular truck camper for a variety of reasons, which I will get into at a later time, but have been incredibly pleased with it so far. It has everything we need (well, except for a slammin’ solar setup and some lithium batteries), and although it doesn’t have any slides, it still feels huge for a truck camper. Capping out at just 10.6 ft long on the bottom, it definitely seems like more space than it really is. I don’t know how you would translate that into square footage…do you add the space under the cabinets and refrigerator also? Does the bunk area count as square footage? I don’t know, but however tiny it is, it works for us!
Take It Everywhere
There’s also something about the ability to just slide it into the bed of your truck and tie it down that adds even more of that special draw. Who wouldn’t want a mini house that they could set down any time they needed to run to town and didn’t want to break camp? Although not the easiest connect and disconnect sequence, it is still a convenience that is often sought after. Plus, you can fit a truck with a camper into way more places than that 40ft fifth wheel your neighbour has. Good luck turning that around in anything less than 10 acres.
What Do You Think?
Do you have any questions about our camper? Perhaps you are curious about how we are planning to pack things into it? By all means, let us know. We’d be happy to answer any questions about it. We’d also love to hear about YOUR adventures, whatever they may be!
