5 Lightweight Truck Campers With Bathrooms

A truck camper might just check all the necessary camping boxes. These types of campers allow owners to travel around in one contained unit without the bother of towing. They can also be removed and left at basecamp for exploratory day trips in the truck. In addition, these types of campers come in many configurations and sizes including lightweight versions.

What is a lightweight truck camper?

A lightweight truck camper is a camper that is usually under 2,000 lb. (dry weight) and can be carried by a half-ton pickup truck. Several popular versions of these types of trucks include the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and the Chevrolet Silverado. These trailers also come in various sizes to fit shorter or longer truck beds.

There are even lighter truck toppers and popups available that come in around 1,000 to 1,500 lb., but many of these ultralight designs don’t come with what many outdoor lovers want — a bathroom complete with a shower.

While some versions (such as the Cirrus 620) may come standard with a cassette toilet, the necessary shower or a handy sink are not always included. Having a full bathroom (either dry or wet) inside one of these tiny homes on trucks can make the entire camper feel more like a real home.

If you feel the need for a hot shower at the end of a dusty day, check out these five lightweight truck campers with bathrooms. Each one of these campers are available new from the manufacturers.

1. Lance 650

There is a lot of buzz surrounding the Lance 650. Coming in at only 1,700 lb., this truck camper is specifically designed for half-ton pickups with 5-foot and 6-foot beds.

Its efficient living space includes a dinette that converts into a twin bed and the queen bed is easily accessed by the foot area. The 650 also has a nice kitchen with a microwave, and best of all, a roomy wet bath that can actually be heated by the 18,000 BTU forced air furnace.

2. Adventurer 80RB

Adventurer Campers has been building truck campers since 1969 and have kept up with times. They design both lightweight and more robust truck campers.

Their 80RB truck camper is built as a self-contained unit for light-duty short bed and long bed trucks. Along with the 60×80 bed, roomy galley, and convertible dinette, this camper also has a stylish wet bath with a toilet and shower.

There is no sink in the bathroom, but the kitchen sink is a large, round European style sink. The 80RB’s bathroom is located at the rear of the camper.

3. Northstar Liberty

Since 1955, Northstar Campers has been building both pop-up and hardwall campers for all sized pickup trucks. The Liberty is the shortest and lightest version of their designs weighing in at only 1,775 lb.

The large bed includes storage on both sides and the kitchen includes a Dometic two-burner stove, sink, and storage. The dinette sports a Lagun table that moves and swivels in any direction. The bathroom has a cassette toilet and a shower. There is also an outdoor shower for summer bathing and gear cleanup.

4. Lance 825

If you can’t get enough of the Lance designs, check out the Lance 825—the big brother of the 650.

The 825 is one of most popular designs by Lance. It features a kitchen with molded countertops and Europly cabinets and a queen bed with privacy curtains. The relatively roomy wet bath includes a small clothing rack, sunroof, and again, heated vents for an extra warm shower.

5. Travel Lite Super Lite

Travel Lite truck campers are lightweight truck campers hovering around 1,600 lb., yet are still made from solid wood construction for added strength.

The Super Lite line of truck campers come in many different floor plans, but the two plans that contain showers are the 610R SL and the 611XR. Other features of the Super Lite include roomy galley kitchens, full storage closets, and both full and queen beds.

Keep in mind when shopping around for a truck camper, to make sure your truck and chosen camper are compatible when it comes to load capacity and truck bed and cab size. Not every half-ton pickup truck will have the capacity to carry each of these truck campers.

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers.

All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
