When it comes to making a purchase decision — no matter what you may be buying — it is often very useful to know what “other” buyers are looking at and shopping for.

Truck campers are no different.

Number 3 – Travel Lite 625SL

Small and easy to carry, the Travel Lite 625SL is eye catching, cozy and not too outrageously priced.

The 48″ width on the bed could make it a bit too tight for two!

The Travel Lite 625SL works great on extra short and regular short bed full sized pickup trucks.  It has no overhang on a short bed as it’s barely over 6 feet and only 1,200 lbs.

And, it’s nicely equipped with a water heater, outside shower, furnace, stove, sink, Porta Potti and a 3 cu. ft. fridge.

Number 1 – Lance 1172

Sporting a double slide-out with a side entry, the most buyer-viewed truck camper of mid 2016 is the Lance 1172!

1172-ext

The slide on the left side bumps out the fridge and dinette where the slide on the back wall bumps out a cozy couch. The slides work together to open up the living space quite nicely!

Storage is always at a premium in truck campers. If you check out some of the 1172’s we have for sale on RVT.com, it looks like Lance provided for lots of storage in this model!

 

It’s interesting to note the low, average and high pricing charts for the Lance 1172.  It shows relatively lofty pricing for 2016 and 2017 models.  Then the pricing curve seems to drop quite steeply to the 2015 models where it “levels off” somewhat when you look from ’15 to ’14 to ’13.

Low, av. and high pricing graph showing 2013 to 2017 units currently for sale on RVT. Steep decline between ’16 and ’15, then seems to level out from ’15 to ’13.

How do you read this pricing chart?  Is this info useful to you as you consider which truck camper, new or used, or which Lance model might be best for you to purchase?

Lance calls the 1172 their “flagship,” double slide, luxury truck camper.  Check with your local Lance dealer to see if your pickup truck will handle this unit, an adventure just waiting to go!
