Camplite 5.7 Truck Camper Testimonials

3 weeks ago I purchased my 5.7 camp-lite truck camper since that time I have been to 5 states from New Hampshire to Maryland and unlike most RV owners have averaged 19.5mpg's. Now I don't know about everyone else but with today's economy and the fact that I am a Disabled Veteran living on my military benefits it is a huge factor in being able to get out and travel. After getting past the fact that this Truck Camper is great economically lets talk comfort and ease of use. I have had a number of RV's ranging from Pop-ups to 5th wheels and even a Class A bus which all became to much to handle as my medical conditions worsened. The 5.7 is nearly maintenance free and a breeze for me to handle on my own or with my wife's help.

The ease of use allows me the ability to get out and become useful to my favorite charity America's VetDogs (they gave me my service dog allowing me my new found freedoms). Because of my medical conditions I have to be able to take breaks and rest with little notice by having the queen sized bed with me everywhere I go I can now do that without worry. Not having to use Hotels also keeps down my PTSD issues of being in strange places while trying to sleep.

It is amazing the number of people that come and talk to me everywhere I go about the great looking camper truck combination. By far this smaller lighter TC camping in mid-sized trucks will become a wave of the future. All I can say is great job in packing such a wonderful camper into such a small light package. I am truly grateful that your company has build such a wonderful product.

Just a couple of pictures of the camper and truck. As you can see I found a couple of places to go on the way home. Still haven't had it on the beach, but I am sure we will take care of that this weekend.

Thanks to your advice on outfitting the truck, it handled the camper great.

Thanks again for the great service and guidance.
Happy "D&H / Camp Lite" customer!
