Truck campers see resurgence in sales

(Nov. 6, 2011) -- "I think the trend people are seeing is a lot of baby boomers are downsizing their motorhomes and fifth-wheels and going into truck campers for driveability and ease of parking," Donkin told Goshen News.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — One of the smallest segments of the recreational vehicle industry is having a steady year, Goshen News reported.

One of the main advantages of pickup campers for sportsmen, according to Keith Donkin, general manager for Northern Lite in Kelowna, B.C., is they can also pull their boat trailer or another type of trailer while their pickup is loaded with the camper, the paper reported.

Modern pickup campers feature all the amenities of larger travel trailers, like slideout kitchens and dinettes, queen size beds, furnaces, insulated windows and bathrooms

Mark Hovanec, with Lance Camper, told Goshen News the popularity of pickup campers is destined to climb.

“I think the trend people are seeing is a lot of baby boomers are downsizing their motorhomes and fifth-wheels and going into truck campers for driveability and ease of parking,” Donkin said.
