Among other things, freedom is the ability to go where you want to go, whenever you want to go there. While it is impossible to be truly free – there are places that are simply off limits – the freedom enjoyed by campers is often limited by their equipment and their transportation. If you own a massive RV you might have the luxury of all the creature comforts of home, but it comes at the expense of your freedom.
An RV is limited to the roads it can use, the places it can park, and even the campgrounds it can use. And when it comes to exploring uncharted territory, driving an RV is more than impractical, it is essentially impossible.
Conversely, backpacking hikers are free to travel anywhere their feet can carry them, but their feet can only go so far and when they get to wherever they’re going all they have is what they could carry on their backs, and carrying large quantities of food or fresh water can be difficult or exhausting. When you explore camping options it is easy to conclude that when it comes to freedom and options in your outdoor recreation, only slide in campers can bridge the gap between hiking on foot and parking in your RV.
Slide in campers are exactly that; campers that slide into the bed of a pickup truck. It is the pickup truck power plant that gives slide in campers the access, range, and capacity that is not available in any other model of camper. When attached to the body of a powerful 4×4 truck, you can take your slide in camper just about anywhere your heart desires. You are not limited to the partitioned areas of a campground like an RV, nor are you excluded from parking lots and small roads either. You can go anywhere a truck can go, and trucks can go just about anywhere. You are only limited by your imagination and your supply of gasoline.
Slide in campers do more than just provide options and range in your travels, they provide comfort and protection as well. With roofs that often pop up to allow walking space, quality campers feel more like an RV than a camper, and they have the amenities to prove it. There is a lot more than a place to sleep in a slide in camper. There is also room to cook on a multiple burner stove, or store food in a fully functioning refrigerator. You can dine at a fold out table in your sitting area, or shower in a fully functioning and enclosed bathroom. You have room for everything you need, including surplus water, cooking gas, heater, and any toys you might wish to take along. A slide in camper makes long trips to remote places not only possible, but fun and convenient.
Once you find a model that will fit the truck you own you simply slide it in, attach it, and go. Whether you want to head into the remote wilderness, or wish to travel cross country without paying for hotels at every stop, slide in campers can provide the freedom to go where you want, when you want.
