I had met a man from North Carolina that use to work in for a truck camper manufacturer business before he retired.
He had some great stories to tell about the making of a truck camper canvas and the pop up slide camper. He said that the experience of creating the truck shell and adding the accessories gave him the idea to travel after retirement in a camper that the camper manufacturer that he worked for created.
He was adamant about the differences between a tent pop up travel trailer and the camper manufacturer that designs his style camper. He said that the construction and the quality workmanship that it takes to make a truck shell are of high quality standards. He said there is nothing wrong with a four wheeler or a van camper, but he prefers his way of travel to any other way.
He said he has seen motorcycles towing campers and the bikes do not provide protection from the weather and he prefers to drive and feel dry or cool depending on the conditions. The truck camper manufacturer he worked for allowed him a small discount that made it affordable to purchase a truck camper shell.
