Many truck campers are very heavy and typically require an expensive, heavy duty truck. You can find some truck campers that you can put on half-ton trucks – especially the pop-up truck campers.
Most truck campers don’t sleep more than 3 comfortably. You probably wouldn’t want to travel in a truck camper with more than just a partner. And, you’d probably want to have a pretty good relationship with your partner to live in such a small space!
Many truck campers don’t have a full bathroom. Some will have a cassette toilet, and some will have a wet bath. These types of bathrooms are doable… But having a fully functional bathroom (that you can actually move around in) makes life on the road a lot easier.
Truck campers are totally unique in the sense that you don’t simply hitch them up… You load the entire thing into the bed of your truck. This can be incredibly difficult to do if you’re alone – and still difficult with a partner. This is something that you can learn and improve upon, but definitely worth noting.
If you’re considering a truck camper, you already know they have limited space. Like, very limited. Just think about living in the bed of a truck… That’s about how much standing room you’ll have, minus the space that’s taken up by the stove or sink, couch or dinette, etc.
