  • - [Reacher] Truck bed campers, love'em or hate'em,
  • they're making a comeback on a grand scale.
  • I'm Reacher and here are 10 truck bed campers
  • currently making their mark in the industry.
  • (dramatic music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number 10.
  • - [Reacher] This first entry, from
  • German-based Camp Crown is the primary offering
  • of a what a truck bed camper should be.
  • The rooftop raises at an angle toward the front,
  • providing extra living space
  • and protection from the elements.
  • When it's lowered, the low profile design
  • allows for a safe, cost-efficient driving experience.
  • And just under nine feet in length
  • with a 8 1/2 foot ceiling, it offers plenty of headroom
  • with a living area that includes a sink,
  • a hideaway cassette toilet, a u-shaped dinette
  • that converts to extra bedding
  • and a twin bed in the cabover.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number nine.
  • - [Reacher] The Cirrus 820 from Ohio-based NuCamp
  • is one of two hard-side shortbed cabover models
  • the company current offers.
  • Coming in at just over 2,500 pounds and 17 feet long,
  • it sports an all-aluminum framework
  • with an alumnium and fiberglass shell.
  • The interior is no slouch in its design either,
  • employing a layout that has a lengthy kitchenette
  • and fridge along one side,
  • while opposite that is the booth-styled dinette.
  • Hidden out of the way near the entrance
  • is a fully enclosed wet bath with a fold-up sink
  • and a wall-mounted showerhead.
  • The cabover offers 3 1/2 feet of headroom
  • as well as space for a queen sized mattress.
  • Rounding out the mix are large windows all around
  • including a skylight above the bed.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number eight.
  • - [Reacher] Although it doesn't look like
  • your traditional truck bed camper,
  • this entry from Outback Campers functions in the same way,
  • by sliding onto the vehicle and having the option
  • to use as a stand-alone unit.
  • The roots raises at an angle, revealing
  • a queen-sized sleeper, while a panel on the rear
  • folds down to create a raised floor for added space.
  • Below the bed, you'll find plenty of storage space
  • as well as a slide-out kitchen and refrigerator.
  • In addition to this, an awning can be extended
  • from the side, along with the option of a tent
  • that can be attached to increase the living area.
  • The rugged design, low center of gravity
  • and light weigh of 1,100 pounds make it perfect
  • for the extreme off-road crowd.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number seven.
  • - [Reacher] I think it goes without saying
  • that the all-black paint scheme on this one
  • is as simple as it gets.
  • The interior on the other hand is a stark contrast,
  • having no shortage of modern amenities.
  • Each one comes standard with features
  • such as kitchenette that includes a stovetop cooker,
  • sink, fridge and microwave.
  • There's also a dinette or couch
  • that converts to extra sleepers
  • as well as a full or queen-sized bed located in the cabover.
  • Currently offered in seven layouts for half ton pickups,
  • the Superlite measures from just over 10 feet
  • to 12 1/2 feet in length, with
  • a starting dry weight of 1,100 pounds.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number six.
  • - [Reacher] The weight and size of this one
  • create the perfect camper for a half ton to 3/4 ton
  • pickup truck, with a 6 1/2 to eight foot bed.
  • It measures in at 16 feet in length,
  • and seven feet in width, with a dry weight of 2,100 pounds.
  • It houses a kitchenette with a sink,
  • a triple burner cooktop, a microwave and three-way fridge.
  • Across from that is a dinette with bench seating
  • that can be converted to an extra bed if needed.
  • And in the back by the entrance
  • is a fully enclosed wet bath.
  • The extended cabover area includes a closet,
  • a queen-sized bed, space for a TV,
  • and extra storage along both sides.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number five.
  • - [Reacher] This full sized triple slide-out
  • can fit all the features of home,
  • including the kitchen sink.
  • Measuring eight feet wide and just over 19 feet long
  • with a dry weight of 3,800 pounds,
  • it's made for trucks that usually have
  • the word dually in the name.
  • The side entry floor plan has a rear slide-out
  • containing the couch and an optional wardrobe.
  • The other two slide-outs are on each side of the camper,
  • one housing a u-shaped dinette
  • that seats up to four people
  • and the opposite one having a kitchenette.
  • Moving forward is the bathroom,
  • which has a separate full-sized standup shower.
  • The cabover provides the main sleeping are
  • with four layout options for a queen or a king-sized bed.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number four.
  • - [Reacher] I just want to point out
  • that this one is a borderline beast of a camper.
  • It measures in at nine feet high,
  • 20 feet in length, eight feet in width
  • and it has a dry weight of just over 3,600 pounds
  • And like the previous entry, you probably won't be hauling
  • this one on anything smaller than a dually.
  • Two slide-out sections on opposite sides of the camper
  • increase the living space, which includes
  • a dinette area with bench seating and a kitchenette
  • with a three burner range, oven and refrigerator.
  • The cabover area has a queen-sized bed,
  • an entertainment system, and a closet with mirrored doors.
  • The camper offers sleeping space for up to four people
  • using the dinette which converts to a bed as well.
  • There's also a dry bath that has
  • a toilet, sink and a private standup shower.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number three.
  • - [Reacher] This unique design is made for
  • flatbed trucks instead of the conventional pickup truck.
  • This allows the owner to use their vehicle
  • for work as well as recreation,
  • with the added option of a tent on top.
  • Like the previous entry at number eight,
  • this one has a powder coated all-aluminium body
  • that has a large compartment on each side.
  • The setup can be customized to the user's needs
  • with options like a slide-out kitchen,
  • a mini fridge and a rooftop mounted tent.
  • It comes standard with a 100-watt solar panel
  • and a 135 amp power battery, LED lighting throughout,
  • and a massive 1,150 liter storage area.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number two.
  • - [Reacher] Another one from a German-based manufacturer,
  • the Tischer Trail/Box 260S is one that can fit
  • both a single and double cab vehicle easily.
  • The aluminum body has an overall length of 20 feet
  • and a width of seven feet.
  • The interior height is 6 1/2 feet,
  • allowing more than enough headroom for the average person.
  • The floor area includes a centrally located
  • u-shaped dinette, along with a small kitchenette
  • on one side and the refrigerator on the other.
  • The cabover has room for a queen-sized bed
  • that can be set up front to back,
  • or side to side as needed.
  • Opposite the side door entrance is an enclosed wet bath.
  • It has a fold-up sink and a swiveling toilet,
  • providing more room to maneuver.
  • The variety of windows and skylights
  • provide plenty of natural light,
  • creating the impression of a space
  • much larger than it actually is.
  • ♪ World, wake me up to another good morning ♪
  • ♪ Time to go ♪
  • ♪ Oh we are all looking for adventure ♪
  • ♪ We are all looking for adventure ♪
  • We had this one in a recent video
  • and I couldn't help but sneak it in here.
  • I can't begin to tell you how much
  • I personally love the look and the layout of the Kimbo 6
  • but as I said before, if I were to buy
  • a truckbed camper, this would be the one.
  • I'll put the link to the other video
  • in the description below, for those that want to
  • give it a more in-depth look.
  • (light music)
  • - [Woman Narrator] Number one.
  • - [Reacher] This final entry has everything you need
  • for a trip of just about any length and any destination.
  • The body is composed of a molded fiberglass composite
  • and it comes in at just over 26 feet long,
  • 7 1/2 feet wide with a total height of 11 feet.
  • Features include a kitchenette with an induction cooktop,
  • sink, refrigerator and microwave.
  • Across from that is a dinette that doubles
  • as an extra sleeping area if needed.
  • The main sleeping area, which fits a king sized bed,
  • is housed in the cabover.
  • There's also an enclosed wet bath
  • and an optional hideaway mini washing machine in the rear
  • along with a small entry that allows access
  • to the camper directly from the cab of the vehicle.
  • Wrapping it all up, is an 850 watt roof-mounted solar array
  • that provides power to the 20 kilowatt hour battery bank.
  • (light music)
