Slide In & Pop Up Truck Campers (2022)

Are truck campers worth it?

At first glance, truck campers might appear lackluster or way too small, leading many potential RVers to pass them over when looking for a new travel trailer. These first looks can be deceiving, as many slide-in and pop-up truck campers actually include space for large kitchenettes and full-size queen beds. Truck campers also offer superior maneuverability, allowing you to go basically anywhere a pickup truck can go and make tight turns much easier than larger travel trailers or motorhomes. With a lower price point, slide-in truck campers allow you to do more while spending less, making it a great option for adventure seekers on a budget.
