Campers

All our campers (and interiors) are built from foam-core composite sandwich panels (also known as structural insulation panels or SIPs) constructed in-house from premium US-made materials.  We use a special 2,000 PSI two-part epoxy to bond the GFRP to the structural foam core under pressure.  These panels are jointed together with high-strength adhesives and make up the load-bearing structure of the campers.  Our panels have been tested at the Cal Poly Composites Lab to confirm their almost unbelievable strength.

 

The campers are then edge-finished with custom custom aluminum pieces, including our proprietary double-seal door extrusions and pop-top system.

Weights will vary based on your truck model but please refer to our specs for more details.  In general, our campers are 20% – 30% lighter than comparable molded fiberglass or metal framing and include insulation and a finished interior.

 

The weights of the different models will vary based on the exact configuration and options; additional doors, windows and other options will increase the weight of the camper.

Yes!  We build interior walls, cabinets, bed platforms and more from our composite panels and other lightweight materials at a fraction of the weight of wood, aluminum or steel with the bonus of a brilliant white gelcoat finish.  Without question this is the highest quality, lowest weight material for interior buildouts.

 

We also install marine-grade (ABYC standards, a far higher standard than RVIA) using only high quality components such as Redarc, Sunflare, Blue Sea, Viktron, Battle Born, etc. as well as water tanks, pumps and faucet systems.

 

At this time we are only offering buildouts and system installations in our camper shells.

Yes.  The HiTop is a sealed unit with double-sealed doors, and our proprietary pop-top extrusion system used on the Lobo PopTop / SuperTourer has a continuous seal, drip rail and inner water barrier to resist water intrusion.

 

While we strive to make our campers water-and dustproof, your truck’s bed may not be.  We recommend a tailgate seal system from Extruded Solutions, and possibly adding spray foam to the inside or your bedsides (among other tricks) to minimize intrusion.

While most campers use metal framing as the load-bearing structure of the camper, then add (or don’t add) insulation and paneling as a separate non-structural component, we take the opposite approach. The interior/exterior paneling and insulation, bonded together with a special 2,000 PSI epoxy, are the structure. The aluminum edging is merely to protect the corners from damage and create a protective exoskeleton.

 

This construction method has been proven by various expedition vehicle manufacturers around the world – we have now made it available to the North American light-truck market.

Yes!  We are an authorized OEM dealer for the following add-on components:

– Sunflare Xplor solar panels

– Front Runner roof racks and accessories

– HardKorr Lighting (interior LED)

– Redarc battery management systems

– Trigger bluetooth switch systems

– Diode Dynamics off-road lighting

Our panels are stocked in standard white and gray gelcoat (included in base price) and can be painted to match to any truck’s color or color of your choice ($1,500).

 

Aluminum edging and door frames powder coated in white, black, gray and anthracite are included in the base price. Custom colors also available upon request.

 

For campers residing in warmer climates, we strongly encourage white roof panels for maximum thermal efficiency, especially the HiTop model.

A lifetime. We build our campers with premium materials, ultra-strong adhesives and an attention to detail not commonly found in the industry. Our campers have been designed from the ground up to not only last for many years, but many years of off-road abuse.

Yes, the SuperTourer is real and in the final stages of development. Our goal is to make the lightest, most durable, most functional off-road camper in the world and we are not rushing it into production. Our inspiration comes from the Europe tradition of expedition cabins combined with Australian “tourers” with a North American twist. Yes, it will be jumped.

Some key design features include a proprietary pop-top and lifting bed system, sub-800 pound weight including interior (600 pounds net of the removed bed), a unique structural composite floor mounted directly to the truck frame (full box frame trucks only). Also available for flatbed applications; however, the downsides to flatbeds include weight, cost, increased floor height but the ability to remove the camper is a compelling option. However, the frame-mounted SuperTourer can be swapped for the factory bed with relative ease.

The SuperTourer will also feature an emphasis on accessible gear storage, which is sorely lacking in current truck camper offerings.

We are keeping the design close to the chest before we reveal the SuperTourer to the world but exciting things are coming. Contact us if you are interested in learning more.
