Discovering the best Lance Slide On Camper for you and your family…..

If you’re looking into purchasing a Lance truck camper or travel trailer, but you’re not sure which one to go for, we’re here to let you know that you really can’t go wrong. That said, there are pros and cons to each one that ought to be taken into consideration when shopping. Here’s how the two types compare:

Travel Trailers

Lance Travel trailers come in many shapes, sizes, colors and lengths. Some have slide-outs and awnings, some are more basic. The benefits of owning a travel trailer are many and include spacious and open floorplans for numerous guests, more interior space since there are no engines or driving components, the towing vehicle doubles as your transportation, lower profile for better clearance, and they can be towed with a variety of vehicles.

There might be a bit of a learning curve for some drivers, specifically those who don’t have experience towing longer trailers. Because you are already towing a trailer, you typically cannot tow anything else, and the larget trailers may require a large truck to tow effectively. Additionally, travel trailers need a fair amount of storage space when not in use.

Truck Campers                             825

Lance Truck Campers are an extremely convenient option, but with one caveat: you need a pickup truck. These small and lightweight campers are designed to sit over the bed of a pickup truck. They are some of the most affordable campers on the market, don’t take up much space when not in use, and don’t require mechanical maintenance, which almost every othe type of recreational vehicle or camper needs.

Because a truck camper hitches a ride on your truck, you can reach camping spots that are inaccessible to larger RVs and campers, especially if your truck is equipped with all-wheel drive and can off road.

If truck campers have a downside, it is that they are not as roomy as other RVs and can become cramped living quarters if used on long trips or for extended periods of time.

Hopefully, this have given you some food for thought for your next Lance Camper purchase.

Lance Camper Purchase Decisions

So, you’ve decided to purchase a truck camper.

First off, congratulations! There are several options out there, including our very own Lance Truck Camper, but, before you begin, there are some considerations to take into account.

There are two ways to do this: either you buy a truck first and then purchase a camper to match, or you buy the camper and match the truck to fit it. For this entry, we are going to tell you the options for buying a camper first, mostly because we don’t know what kind of truck you may already have and want this information to be useful to anyone.

One of the biggest choices is whether you want a hard-side or a pop-up camper for your truck?

Pop-up campers are lighter and have a more aerodynamic design for easier traveling. They also provide slightly better gas mileage for the truck used to haul it. One of the best things about them is that they are generally cheaper than their counterparts.

Hard-side truck campers, on the other hand, have a wealth of storage space compared to the pop-ups and better insulation in extreme weather. Once you have it set up on your truck, you never need to set up again if you don’t want to. It’s always ready to go. They can also feel more like a real motorhome or RV. Needless to say, they’re also more durable and retain more value than a pop-up.

All things considered, we recommend a hard-side truck camper. They’re sturdier, which means they’re up to more challenges, will last longer, and are better in the long run if you plan on using it a lot.

Something else to think about is where the bathroom is located. Most truck campers have them located in the rear of the unit, although some of the more modern hard-side campers with slide-outs have them in the mid-section to divide the bedroom from the living area. You also want to think about whether you want a wet or dry bath. This refers to either a separate tub/shower or an all-in-one kind of stall.

There are several other options you should look into before purchasing your dream truck camper. When you’re ready, check out Lance Camper’s full lineup of great deals.
