Hi everyone, I am new to camping and I have never had a trailer. Now, last summer my friends invited me to join their trip, and I found out that I love this. I drive an F-350, and I've got a bed tent for it, though I am not really happy with it. So I decided to go further and buy a camper. I do not really feel, that I need a trailer, so I stopped on a camper, or truck backpack, or what is the other right word for it haha
Here's the pic of what I like, and I was wondering if someone could please direct me to the right place, or at least will tell me the brand, that's proven to last and work? Or tell me, what kind of camper would you grab if you were me?

I have owned two Lance brand campers. My current one is an 1172 with two slides. Lance is a well known brand that seem to hold up well, but others such as Artic Fox are also good. Do your research and look at lots of brands before jumping into something. You have the truck for hauling so that is half the battle. Good luck!

I love your truck!! Have you ever considered a pull camper. This will give you full use of you truck when camping. Never know what that will happen when you need your truck to pull something or some one out of the mud! Just do your reseach about campers and I know you will make a great choice.
