Truck campers with Slideouts – The List
A truck camper is a type of RV that sits in the bed of a pickup truck. These RVs have a small footprint because the truck that carries them must fully support their weight, and cannot extend too far beyond the dimensions of the truck’s body. The addition of slide-outs can increase the living space to create more comfort and better amenities, without the complications of towing an RV behind you.

What you need to know about A Truck Camper’s center of gravity
A truck camper’s center of gravity when it leaves the factory is not always in the center of the camper. It’s important to know where your RV’s center of gravity is so that you can distribute the weight of any added contents appropriately. Adding too much stress to one of your truck’s axles could result in damage to your truck that could lead to a tire blow-out, or your vehicle tipping over.
Your truck also has a center of gravity, and you will need to know this location as well when loading your vehicle.
Both the RV and the truck should have factory stickers detailing their centers of gravity. If you can’t find this information, you should contact the manufacturer before adding accessories or packing items in your RV.
How to find the right camper for your truck, or vice-versa
When matching the camper to your truck, camper weight, truck weight, and the truck carrying capacity are all important factors. You need to know your truck’s payload capacity and then make sure you never go above that rate – even with the camper fully loaded. It’s always wise to leave a “buffer” of excess weight between your stated payload and actual load.
The truck’s dimensions would be another crucial factor. If you already have a pickup truck, either measure it up or check the manufacturer’s website for the exact specs. Then carefully check the size charts of the truck camper model you’re looking at.
I hope you found this guide useful. As you can see, there are options for just about any buyer who wants the flexibility of a small RV, but also a bit of extra space that slide-outs provides. Just make sure you follow weight and safety guidelines when choosing a truck and truck camper for your travels.
