Tacoma-size modular pickup camper debuts as the market’s lightest. Weighing in just over 900 lb (408 kg), the new Scout Yoho camper debuts as the claimed lightest hard-sided pickup camper in the industry.
What is the lightest cabover camper?
Northstar has been building quality campers for over 50 years now, and the Liberty is the shortest and lightest they have ever designed. It weighs just 1,775 lbs and comes with a queen bed, a two-burner stove, a sink, a dinette, and a surprising amount of storage.
How much do slide in campers weigh?
You can expect an average truck camper weight to be about 2,684 pounds (1,217 kg). This varies depending on the type of truck camper and whether it’s a hard side or pop up style. Models that come with slide-outs typically add about 1,000 lbs (453 kg) to a typical non-slide out model.
Can a 1/2 ton truck carry a camper?
The problem is unlike many of the 3/4- and 1-ton trucks on the market, most half-tons are not equipped to handle the bulkiness of a full-size camper. None of the current or even older half-ton pickups can safely haul a 1,000- to 2,000-pound payload in the bed.
What size truck is needed for a slide in camper?
Once fully loaded and wet, most single-slide campers (and some non-slide, hard sides as well) require the capacity of a dually truck. Any camper with more than one slide absolutely requires a dual rear wheel truck. Of course, it’s not that simple because not all one-ton single rear wheel or dually trucks are the same.
