Eagle Cap 1165 triple-slide truck camper specifications, construction details and list of standard and optional features.

The previous page provides detailed description of the Eagle Cap 1165 Triple-slide truck camper - an example of the residential-like RV. What for long seemed to be only a dream, since few years became the reality thanks to innovative designs by Adventurer LP. BTW- recently also Northwood joined the "club" of manufacturers of triple-slide truck campers with its model Arctic Fox 1163.

Eagle Cap 1165 Truck Camper: Here with patio-side awning

Before we go to specs, few important words regarding the pickup truck. 

Pickup Truck

       By nature, all truck campers are great candidates for off-road adventures where in most cases the only limit is the truck itself. Well, in the case of Eagle Cap triple-slide model 1165, “things” are a little bit more complex. The main culprit is the weight. EC-1165 campers come from the factory with dry weight in the range from 4,400 lbs to about 5,000 lbs (depending on choices for dinette and lounge as well as optional, although considered as a “must” TV and awning. The “wet” version (with all liquids, 2 full LPG tanks and 2 batteries) typically adds about 750 lbs. And there is also “stuff” including kitchen accessories, dry food, fridge content, bottled drinks, linen, clothing, personal items, basic tools, and all kinds of camping gear. Well, you may also decide to go for optional A/C unit, Generator, Solar Panels etc…

The bottom line – the weight of the “ready-to-go” Eagle Cap 1165 camper may easily reach 6,000-7,000 lbs, by large exceeding available payload in popular trucks belonging to 350-series. While these popular 1-ton trucks with some caution (right tires, suspension reinforcement, etc…) and minimum “stuff” may be marginally fit to carry Eagle Cap 1165, it will not be advised to venture off beaten paths. Driving on an uneven terrain induces dynamic stress and overload that by far may exceed any technical limits of the truck.

The Adventurer LP clearly states, that Eagle Cap 1165 is designed for long bed “dually” trucks (in other words trucks with dual (twin) rear axles. Such trucks will be fitted with Heavy Duty brakes, shocks and springs. Suggested models represent the 450-series.


Note that the “available” payload of your truck cannot be simply calculated only as the result of the following subtractions:

GVWR (truck) – Actual Weight of the camper (in ready to go state) – Weight of People (driver and passengers) – Weight of truck fuel. This is because you must also take into account GAWR (rear axles rating) as well as Tire Ratings. The lowest number is the real limit.

See details at:  --> Towing ratings

Also, note that the truck camper MUST be secured to the truck. For this purpose, the Eagle Cap 1165 has stainless-steel tie-down brackets bolted into the aluminum structure.

Summarizing: The Eagle Cap 1165 triple-slide truck camper is a “residential-style” (by “truck-campers standards”) RV able to meet the expectations of many even matured RV-ers. Spacious, elegant but also well-designed and engineered, it is the real king among truck campers. As stated, by the company's founder, Mr. Erdman Epp:  "(we) were never satisfied until Good is Better, and Better is Best".

      While I’m personally convinced that from the engineer’s point of view: “Better is the enemy of Good Enough”, I have to give some credit to Mr. E. Epp – without the vision and wish to explore new paths we will probably still live in an era of slide-less camper trucks.
