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.”

Lance Camper Short Bed or Long Bed? You decide

Lance Slide On Camper 992 model cleanSome valuable information from the Lance Campers US website.

Truck campers (or slide on campers as we call them in Australia) come in a variety of sizes, styles, lengths, and weights. If you are looking into purchasing a truck camper, don’t let the amount of options overwhelm you. There are many things to keep in mind when you go shopping. The first thing you want to figure out is whether you need a long or short bed camper. People that have been camping for years with this unique style of camper will tell you that you should pick your camper first and then your truck.

This isn’t always as easy as it sounds. What if you already have a truck? You might not want to buy another or maybe you aren’t even able to. You just want to find a camper that will work with what you have. Here are a few things to look for or keep in mind when deciding on a Lance truck camper.

First, be sure that the camper you are looking for can be held by your truck. The units with slide outs will be heavier, which require a heavier payload.

As far as the campers are concerned, it really is up to your preference, but here are a couple things to consider:

  • A short bed camper is obviously best for a short bed truck. These aren’t as common, however, and more people buy long bed campers.
  • You have a lot more options with a long bed, so if you can acquire one of those, do so. Long bed campers have a higher resale value as well.

Short bed campers can be great for lone adventurers or for a couple. They provide just enough space for sleeping, cooking, and showering. Another factor to consider when choosing is whether you want a dry bath or wet bath. This can be crucial if you have a strong preference. The same applies for a preference in truck manufacturers. Ford vs Chevrolet? Toyota vs Ram? You decide.

If you need help in deciding which will be best for you, visit Lance Camper online or stop by an authorised dealer. The Lance Match Maker tool on our website will help you weed out which camper would be best given the type of truck you have or are considering.
