Truck Campers start at 6:00 minutes.

We went to check out
The Seattle RV Show
VIDEO LINK >>> https://youtu.be/k9JkWtw9fSU <<< VIDEO LINK
We are primarily looking at
CLASS B Camper Vans
Based upon either
-The Ford Transit-
-The Mercedes Sprinter-
another good choice
Both are available in 4x4
And both offer Diesel Engines
We had only an hour and a half
To cover a lot of ground
So the video is a little hurried
We are only interested in
Non Slide Models for Ourselves
Our Class B Van winner is
Our Truck Camper Winner is
BigFoot a close second

That was a great video. Thanks for posting your equipment picks too!  :)
And FWIW...
Before I bought my last camper/truck combo I went to countless shows and dealer's lots researching & looking at equipment.
My TC picks...
A NorthernLite on a Ford or a Northstar on a Dodge(RAM) were my two favorite 'best-fit' combinations.
I went with the RAM/Northstar choice. 
No regrets thus far. 
Thanks for posting and good luck with your Class-B shopping.
Please keep us posted on your progress!  :fing32:
