Truck Camper Manufacturers at Juniata Valley RV
What is a Truck Camper?
A truck camper is exactly what it sounds like: a camper that is attached to the bed of a pickup truck. These campers are often very small, consisting of a bed, bathroom and kitchen at most. Though tiny campers may have the title, truck campers are truly the smallest campers on the market. They are so small, in fact, that most states don’t legally consider them RVs! Pennsylvania included – here, they are considered cargo rather than an RV.
While truck campers are definitely small, they are a great option for single travelers or couples on the go. One of the main benefits is their maneuverability. They’re easier to drive on winding campground paths or off-road trails for boondockers because they aren’t towed. Additionally, there’s no worry when it comes to parking your truck camper. It’s easy to back into your campsite, and you can fit in almost any parking lot along the way.

In addition to ease of travel, truck campers are an affordable option if budget is a concern when you’re in the market for a new RV. The initial price tag is much smaller than most campers. They range anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000 new. Not to mention there’s no need to worry about purchasing a registration or significant insurance rate hikes. Finally, they are easy to store! Truck campers are small enough to store in the garage or driveway of most homes.
The truck camper benefits range from price to drivability, which is why we recommend them for single or duo travelers. So, when you shop truck campers at Juniata Valley RV, what are your options?
Capri Truck Campers
Since 1969, Capri has specialized in “the world’s finest truck camper.” They began in a Texas warehouse and have since expanded to a full manufacturing facility. Their campers are lightweight, well-constructed and affordable. And, of course, many buyers love the vintage style that can only be found on Capri truck campers.
Capri campers were recently seen on Paramount’s hit TV show Yellowstone! They manufacture both cab-over models, Retreat and Lone Star, and a non-cab-over Cowboy model. Juniata Valley RV carries all three of their models, so you can choose the camper that works best for you!
Lance Truck Campers
While based in California, Lance plans to open a second facility in Decatur, Indiana, to help keep dealers in the Midwest and on the East Coast stocked. Lance has built safe, eco-friendly, dependable campers since 1965. All of their campers include a two-year structural warranty, so you know you’ve purchased a camper that the brand believes in.
Lance has truck campers to fit both short-bed and long-bed trucks. Both are available in multiple models at Juniata Valley RV. Their stylish campers include award-winning models and floorplans that maximize limited space. In addition to Lance truck campers, we carry Lance travel trailers at our dealership.
NuCamp Truck Campers
Though NuCamp may be better known for their tiny campers, their Cirrus truck campers deserve just as much recognition! NuCamp’s story begins in Ohio’s Amish country in 2004; the original manufacturing company was name Pleasant Valley.
