    Picked this up for $2600US the other day to go in the back of my 91 Dodge with a Cummins. I wanted lightweight, simplicity, and low overhead, and that is exactly what I got with no frills. Just a stove, fridge, heater, and a cold water sink, plus two beds. Only real work needed is a re attachment of the camper jacks... Only had 3 from the factory and was very very tippy. I am adding a 4th, and moving the others a little and Through-bolting them. Also need to figure out the heater. Otherwise it's weather tight and a california dry vehicle... Could find no rot anywhere.

    I am soon to be a happy camper!

    I had wanted one of those too but wife said no so we got a popup instead. I’m happy about the decision but if it were just me the truck popup would’ve been fine too. Looks like a nice camper.

    Cool. I always thought it would be neat to have a truck camper, but I don't have a truck. Thought about getting an old Avion (airstream style truck camper) and mounting it to my utility trailer in the hopes that eventually I might get another truck that it would work with. Have fun with your camper!
