5 Best Truck Campers To Live In
A truck camper can basically be defined as a box that has been mounted on a truck. For many years now, truck campers have undergone great evolution and are now more elaborate. Lovers of adventure have a variety of truck campers to choose from depending on their budget and need. Truck campers are better than motels because you can make your own meals while on the road and sleep at a place of your choice. Are you unsure of which truck camper to choose for your next open road vacation? Here is a list of 5 best truck campers to live in:
1. Slide in, Cab over Camper
Just like the name suggests, the camper is slid into the bed of the truck to mount it. First, you will need jacks to raise the camper to the required height before it can be easily slid in. After it has been mounted, you can then secure the camper using straps or turnbuckles.
This type of truck camper is ideal because it has enough room for a normal-height person to stand up. It is called cab-over campers because its sleeping area has an extension over the truck. In addition, this type of camper also has a dinette which can be converted to an area someone can sleep in. If you are a family with a couple of children then this is the best truck camper for you.
The slide in, cab over camper has a kitchen set up which includes a stove and a refrigerator that runs off gas.

2. Chassis Mount Camper
This type of camper is similar to the slide in, cab over camper in so many ways. However, the distinctive difference is only that the bed of the truck is taken out and the camper is permanently mounted on the truck. Having removed the truck bed, you get more room that you can use for storage. The camping crew also have more options when deciding on the configuration of the floor.

3. Pop-Up Camper
The pop-up camper has a unique feature. The roof pops up and raises when the truck is parked and lowers while the truck is on the road. The main advantage of this type of camper is that when it is at the campsite, you can lift up the roof and get an additional room for the head when you are inside.

4. Camper Shell Topper
This is one of the first types of campers. It is very suitable for a person on a budget and needs an orientation to the truck camping experience. The user of this camper can customize the interior with cabinets for storage and a carpet to make it more comfortable. However, the user will have to do with limited space as the camper shell topper is of the same height as the truck.

5. Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer
The fifth wheel travel trailer has been designed to be towed by a truck. These trucks are fitted with a tow hitch or a tow bar. To shorten the total length of the truck and the trailer combined, part of the body of the trailer lies on the bed of the truck. You can choose the size of your fifth wheel depending on the number of users or what you want to carry. However, it is good to note that the size you choose will greatly depend on the towing capacity of your truck.
