Obviously, these truck campers are completely ill-suited to full-time family living.
We checked them out solely for the amenities.
Three slides, ¾ bath, nicely equipped galley kitchens. It’s impressive what they’ve fitted to a truck-top camper.
Don’t be fooled, though: you’ll definitely need a full-size, 1-ton or better classed truck body for some of these. They reach 5,500 lbs and have wallet-busting price tags: $56k
The outside, kitchenette, and surprisingly well-equipped inside of this year’s Tab travel trailer. It technically has a tiny, functional ¾ wet-bath tucked in the corner.
What would an RV show be without the vendor area? This time I spent a few minutes at the Hobie booth checking out the new 2015 Pro Angler 14–now that’s a darn fine fishing boat.
The kids were far more interested in the Lowrance Elite 4 HDI Gold that Hobie fitted. Probably because it looks like a video game.
Oh, and that stand-up grab bar looks like a good idea. But I played around with its adjustments a bit then decided I’d probably end up bashing my hands or arms against it or using it for extra leverage to capsize the boat at the earliest opportunity.
Not shown: the Hobie guys also fitted some waterproof red and green LED strip lights to the bow and a white strip aft.
A fifth wheel similar in amenities to the Heritage Glen fiver we saw last year. I find I’m torn again on the whole fiver vs. trailer argument again. That second bath on here is a powerful argument in favor…but we’d lose so much cargo space in the tow vehicle.
The reworked, modern Shasta trailer. Haven’t had a chance to get into one until today. If I had my druthers, I’d fit a full-size live-in very much like this.
