February Slide On Camper News

With an utterly pleasurable and successful Newcastle Show, we are looking forward to our display at the Rosehill Supershow. Our customers are our focus and if we can better display our campers for your to view and test, please let us know. Which camper models would you like to see at the show. We of course are getting a lot of interest in the brand new 650 which you will see on display on a brand new Mazda BT50. But what other models do you want to see in the flesh…We will have available the 650, 825, 855S, 1052, 1062 and 1172 but won’t be able to take the entire fleet due area restrictions. Let us know if there is a model specifically you are wanting to see there.

Lance Partners With Cruise America

Lance is pleased to announce they have entered into a partnership with Cruise America RV Rental. Lance will be supplying truck campers that will be available for rent at four North American locations (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver & Calgary).

“We are happy to be partnering with Cruise America on this project. We believe the truck camper market has substantial growth potential and the additional exposure these units will provide at national parks and campgrounds in key markets will help foster this growth” states Jack Cole, President & CEO at Lance. “Another benefit of the partnership is now prospective truck camper buyers will have the option to try before they buy, just as customers have with other types of RV’s.”

Lance will be supplying the Cruise America T17 model that is based on the Lance 650 truck camper released last year in the U.S. and Canada, which is designed specifically for half-ton short bed trucks.

Michael Smalley, Vice President for Cruise America RV Rental adds, “We are pleased to add the Cruise America T17 truck camper to our RV fleet. With the growing popularity of small campers, the T17 will allow us to provide our customers with a vehicle that’s easy to drive, simple to operate, gets great gas mileage and still has all the amenities of a full-size motorhome. Especially for those who’ve never tried an RV vacation, this will be an excellent adventure vehicle.”
