Go On an Adventure with a Truck Camper

A truck camper is a pickup truck with a cabin mounted onto the back part of the vehicle. This type of campervan is compact but easy to drive. Truck campers are ideal for beginners. The living area is in an alcove over the driver's seat, which offers enough space for up to three people.

Truck campers are robust and manoeuvrable vehicles. In comparison to an integrated motorhome, they are ideal for exploring the countryside and travelling on small country roads. This type of campervan is ideal for road trips through Canada or America. The attached cabin is comfortable and great for families and couples.

Sleeping in a Pickup Camper: Your Own Mini Retreat for Rest and Relaxation 

The separate living cabin can accommodate up to three people. Just like in an alcove motorhome, you can also sleep in the alcove. In the alcove there is a double bed above the driver's seat and you can use it as a place to relax and rest. The seating area in a truck camper can also be converted into a bed just like in other campervans. This gives you the flexibility to use this area for socialising during the day, but in the evening you can turn it into a mini bedroom.  

Have Fun Cooking and Trying New Dishes in a Truck Camper 

In a truck camper you will find everything you will need to prepare tasty meals. The cabins have a well-equipped kitchenette with a hob, sink and fridge or cooler box. Some truck campers also have a microwave or an oven. Cupboards and drawers offer sufficient storage space for your cooking utensils, crockery and food so that you have everything you will need. This way, you can prepare your favourite dishes even when you’re on the go.

Tips on How to Book the Right Motorhome

The following tips below will help you to find the perfect motorhome for your holiday:

  • When choosing a motorhome, about how many people it will need to accommodate. This will ensure that there is enough space for everyone.

  • Consider in advance which features and additional services are important. Do you need a fully equipped kitchen, a separate bathroom with shower or a campervan that can accommodate more than three people? Rent a motorhome that best suits your needs.

Make sure to book in advance to avoid any disappointment. During the high season a lot of campervans are fully booked up. Therefore, by booking in advance you will be able to secure your preferred model and have a wider selection of campervans to choose from.

Accessories for Your Truck Camper

Depending on the model and campervan, you can choose to add various accessories. This will help you to have a stress free holiday and you will have more space in your suitcase for some fantastic souvenirs. You can choose to add bed linen and towels and a lot of campervan rental companies also offer kitchen utensils so that you are fully prepared for your campervan holiday. If you are travelling with children, you can usually request one or more child car seats to ensure their safety in the vehicle. Sometimes child car seats are not provided for insurance reasons, which means you will have to bring your own child car seat with you. However, keep in mind that fees apply for most accessories or add-ons. The costs can vary depending on the rental company and the type of accessory.
