Current List of Truck Camper Manufacturers

A Truck Camper Buyer's Guide

Truck Camper Adventure is proud to present this updated Truck Camper Buyer’s Guide. Despite the claims of some that the slide-in truck camper is dying breed of RV, there’s strong evidence that it isn’t. Most notably, rising sales and the presence of a healthy and vibrant manufacturing base. Sure, we occasionally learn of a truck camper company going out of business—Livin’ Lite and Eureka Campers being the most recent examples—yet a new company seems to pop up once a year as well. There’s no doubt about it, due to its numerous benefits, the truck camper isn’t going anywhere. The RV truck camper is more versatile, easier to drive, offers better fuel economy, and can be taken further off the beaten path compared to other types of RVs. It’s also easier to store and maintain, and in most states doesn’t require annual registration and title fees. When it comes to versatility and value, there isn’t a better RV on the planet.

So who makes the best truck camper? That depends on what you’re looking for. What might be the best truck camper for one person, might not make the grade for another. Things like cost, floorplans, construction, sizes, and options vary so much, that’s really an impossible question to answer. For example, an aluminum pop-up camper with a cassette toilet might be great for one person, but not so great for another who prefers a molded fiberglass hard-side camper with a standard toilet. Fortunately, consumers have a wide variety of choices when it comes to today’s truck camper.

This updated Truck Camper Buyer’s Guide not only provides a comprehensive list of active truck camper manufacturers—the most complete list on the web for other websites that copy our list—but also corresponding brands and models. Only North American companies are listed and includes both slide-in and chassis-mounted truck campers. Companies and camper models are linked where appropriate, especially if they’ve been ranked elsewhere on this site. This buyer’s guide will be regularly maintained as a service to the truck camper community. Unlike other guides and listings like those provided by Truck Camper Magazine, all truck camper companies are listed regardless of advertising status. This buyer’s guide will be expanded in time with even more information and graphics. If you see any inaccuracies or if anything needs to be updated, please let us know. So without further adieu, here is current list of truck camper manufacturers.

About Mello Mike 622 Articles
Mello Mike is an Arizona native, author, and the founder of Truck Camper Adventure. He's been RV'ing since 2002, is a certified RVIA Level 1 RV Technician, and has restored several Airstream travel trailers. A communications expert, he retired from the U.S. Navy in 2004 as a CWO3 after 24 years, worked in project management, and now runs Truck Camper Adventure full-time. He also does some RV consulting, repairs, and inspections on the side. He currently rolls in a 2013 Ram 3500 with a 2021 Bundutec Roadrunner truck camper mounted on top.


      • I see that is true after reading Wikipedia. Oddly, the web site still functions, which left me with the impression they were still a viable business. Leave it to Thor to mess things up.

        • Also might be interesting to create a “buyers guide” for out of business/production brands of TC’s. Would help folks when they stumble into the truly oddball campers. I found a Roamer listed (in Nebraska) on Craigslist the other day (rather rough looking, poor pics too) and when I Googled it, your article came up. Interesting that the Bronze colored Ram in the publicity pic is virtually identical to my truck, including the color.

  1. Thanks Mike for your recent work on the site. The direction that Host is going with battery’s should prove to be very popular with there high end customer base. Our society is changing as people make more money. I have noticed through house sales that people want turn key packages. I think Host has gone in a lucrative direction and it would pay other builders to take note of there success selling battery packages in a turn key product.

    I never get tired of looking at the increasing list of truck camper builders. Quality and innovation seem to be on the rise and that’s a great thing for us consumers.

    Notable observations from your list include that eye popping Earth Roamer rig, yea it’s got limitations but it sure looks cool. For my money thou, tradition will always win out. That Bigfoot rig offers looks and balance. The new 11 foot Granite offers the same with the needed room, unfortunately the rig came in a little portly. The extra weight would surly comprise my need to pull a large trailer with 500 to 700 pounds of tongue weight. With all these choices my first pick has not changed. With a dinette like the Granite and a quality pull out tray like the Mammoth, the STC from Northstar could be the perfect TC for me.

  2. Mike,
    That’s a fine synopsis of current TC manufactures you’ve put together. I don’t think your readers have any idea how much work goes into producing even this short list: all the fact checking and stat review in a constantly changing environment where mfgrs. come and go. It takes all kinds, and as long as there is a buyer for your product, the sifting process will continue. jefe
