Hey, check this one out. On Ebay under truck campers. A 2017 Host TC. this thing has EVERYTHING.

including a WASHER/DRYER. it has almost, well everything, you could want.

the camper and truck together - make offer. Heck I could sell everything I own, plus the grandkids and still not be able to afford it.

 

ebay no. 172679694761 - I think.

It must have said what make and year of truck goes with it could be a great deal for a new Host camper if the truck is decent.

I'm a little lost, here. I get the draw to a lightweight popup that you can go play mountain goat with. I also see the practicality of a TC for towing a boat, or whatever. By the time you get to a $60k, 5-6000# behemoth, however, the logic escapes me. Do folks really take those units off their 4/5 series trucks at campgrounds so they can drive around in a thing that rides like a lumber wagon with no load? For that price, you can have a really nice (used) class C that is its own truck and has a lot better chance at selling when you want to move-on. I guess the only answer to "Why?" is "Because I can."

A Class C is typically limited to 5000-7500 lbs towing, does not have 4wd and has low underbody clearance. If someone is looking for more room and comfort yet still have those capabilities, one of the large double or triple slide truck campers make sense. If you want 10,000 lb towing capacity in an RV, you are looking at a much larger Super C or a diesel pusher Class A - Neither of these have good clearance underneath and only the Super C is available in 4wd.

 

We boon dock where the roads are not paved and the turn around areas are tight or nonexistent, yet we want a level of capacity, comfort and space our single slide TC did not provide. I don't take my camper down goat trails, but I will stage it next to them and pull out much more capable vehicles out of the trailer to go explore. Even if we are exploring towns, a motorcycle or small open air vehicle is much easier to handle than a pickup when parking.

All good points, Bedlam. The thing missing in my experience is the vast openness of the west and the draw it has to folks who live in urban areas. The kinds of places you are talking about are almost nonexistent in the areas we visit. Besides, we live in the country, so we really enjoy staying in campgrounds and visiting with the folks we meet there. Vive la difference!

I'm not trying to convince that everyone should have a triple slide or even a truck camper, but those are my reasons. I've owned fiberglass egg trailers, pop up tent trailers and toy haulers in the past, but this large truck camper does what I want with my current RV'ing lifestyle. Any choice has some compromise in features, size or price, so best you can do is figure out your priorities and then find the best fit.

Well I agree with Oliver, its to big & I really don't think it should be taken off road much. We've got a Lance 1181 & its to big for serious off roading! One slide is enough for me. We do grind our way up an extreme 4-wheel drive road locally to our favorite remote camping spot, (but am concerned about what can happen, I'm in 4 low & 1st gear & going as slow as I can to do it, but what would happen if I broke a universal joint or drive line I think I would loose the whole works with only the brakes holding it (as anyone knows its easier to hold the rig from sliding with compression versus using the brakes. I'm also concerned about a tie down braking, (is it possible for a camper to slide off the back on a very steep grade if the die downs brake or tip over onto the hood going down a steep grade?)

  Whats my point?? A man needs two campers!!, I've actually got a spare truck an old F-250 4X 4, we've talked about getting another camper for this truck just for beating up in the hills. I was looking for a used pop up (use to have an old Alaskan) but the DW  says she won't use a pot in a cabinet!  Anyway may have to settle for an old 8 1/2' camper.

  If ones going to stick to the hwy's & RV Camps or the occasional Forest Service Rd then I guess a multiple slide TC fine other than the hassels of several slides JMHO
