The Truck Camper

1993 Lance 10.5 Squire 8000, i bought last fall for 2500.00 off a older lady that used it as she travelled around with her horses to shows and stuff. Bought it for the kid and one day it will go back to him providing he smartens up, it will fit nicely on his truck that sits in storage again till he figures its time to smarten up and work with the people that are behind him. yea teenagers, time will tell.

I set the camper on my ford e 350 dually that i use to haul my fiver with. Powerstroke diesel with a chip, lots of power. I suspect this whole deal weighs in around 10000 pounds. Left the sleeper on for extra storage but had to cut the roof down to get the camper to sit where i wanted it to sit.
The above pic shows the camper with the side doors open, honda 3000 watt genny, snap on tool box, and the beer fridge, also in there is a two speakers tucked up under the camper and in the side compartment is the sony explod system with a separate amp for subwoofers. Sounds good and once your into the campsite, just unbolt the doors and they either lay down to have a nice big table or unhook the chains and they go right to the ground. Grab a beer and chair, turn on the radio and relax.

I had to build a 12 inch high platform for the camper to sit on in order to get clearence for the cab . This puts the camper a little high on the truck but after using and driving the whole unit, it feels very stable, probably due to the dually and extra wieght of the sleeper.

I use the sleeper for extra stuff to have around when travelling and camping but the big thing is a freezer. Yup a onboard chest freezer, and its full of different meats, frozen juices breads and southern comfort. This is the best thing to have when travelling and living fulltime whether in a fiver or truck camper. Can take advantage of deals at the grocery store and less spending in the shops close to campgrounds where it can tend to be expensive.

The outside beer fridge and freezer work off one of the inverters. 1000 watt inverter supplies the power from 4 crown 6 volt batteries. i can easily run 24 hours with this setup as long as i am frugal with the camper lights and what not. I should also say, the camper fridge inside is a home unit too and works off the 1000 watt inverter that supplies the camper power.
