Adventure Manufacturing, Scout Campers launched the second model of its fleet recently—the Yoho 6.0—designed specifically for the growing mid-size truck segment. According to the press release, the Scout Yoho is like a backpack for a truck—inside it contains all the camping equipment one needs for off-grid truck camping adventures and the portability to take out and use the components outside.
What differentiates the Scout Yoho from Scout’s first model—the Olympic 6.5—is its size, weight, and supreme minimalism. The dry weight of the Yoho is only 913 pounds and offers a floor length of 5 feet 8 inches, yet can sleep up to four people. There are other differences between the Olympic and Yoho, too, like a large gear locker located on the passenger side, the option for the 45L CFX Dometic fridge/freezer, and a new multi-functional design feature that can sleep two people—the Convertible Lounge. The ideal seat-sleep-and-eat set up, this new feature serves as an open L-shaped style seating area, a dinette, and easily transitions into two comfortable beds at night.
“We’re excited that our company has come together and produced a product that allows people to go further and be more remote and self sufficient,” explained Matt Glende, Adventure Manufacturing’s Marketing Manager. “During these times it’s important to explore your own state, province or country and we’re excited to be a part of that.”
The Yoho truck camper comes with most of the same jam-packed standard features as the Olympic 6.5 like the 160 watt Renogy monocrystalline solar panel, the portable Yeti 1000 Lithium Power Station, the portable 4.9 gallon Lifesaver Water Storage unit with built-in filtration, a Moon Roof, and a ratchet tie down system. Many of the same add-ons are available as well, including the Newport 4.5 BTU Real Flame Fireplace, the Rhino Rack 270 degree Batwing Awning, the portable Dometic two-burner cooktop, a portable toilet, and more.
While the truck camper is smaller, it’s just as capable for vigorous adventures due to its pristine construction. Scout Campers are the lightest among all the solid wall truck bed campers available today. Built with aluminum exo-skeleton framing, these truck campers are highly durable, safe, and built for four-season travel. The camper’s no-wood, composite structural panels will never rot, delivering an off-grid truck camper that will last for generations.
Designed specifically for mid-size trucks like Ford Ranger, Toyota Tacoma, GMC Canyon, Chevy Colorado, and Nissan Frontier, the Scout Yoho 6.0 offers a wide range of flexibility because of its small size and low weight. Unfortunately, the newest and hottest mid-size truck, the Jeep Gladiator, wasn’t mentioned in the company’s press release. Truck Camper Adventure is awaiting clarification on the matter, though the Gladiator’s narrow, 50-inch wide tailgate opening and other truck bed measurements will likely be an issue with fitment.
Pricing for Adventure Manufacturing’s new Scout Yoho 6.0 starts at $19,240. For more information, please visit scoutcampers.com.
