Can You Fit a Truck Camper in a Garage?

Truck campers are a great way to go camping and explore the great outdoors. But what if you don’t have the space to store a truck camper?

Can you fit a truck camper in a garage?

The short answer is yes, it is possible to fit a truck camper in a garage. However, there are several things to consider before attempting this.

First, you need to make sure your garage is big enough for the truck camper and that it will fit through the door. The width of the door should be at least 8 feet wide, and the height should be at least 7 feet tall. You also need to make sure there is enough clearance in the garage so that you can close the door when you have installed the camper.

Once you have determined that your garage can accommodate your truck camper, then you need to make sure that your truck can handle the extra weight. Most campers range from 1,500-2,000 lbs., so your vehicle will definitely need an upgrade in suspension and brakes if it isn’t already capable of hauling this amount of weight.

You also need to take into consideration how much space you will have for storage once your camper is installed. If you plan on using the camper frequently and are limited on storage space, then you may want to look into getting an RV storage unit or shed where you can store all of your camping gear.


In conclusion, while it is possible to fit a truck camper in a garage, there are several factors that must be taken into account before attempting this. It is important to ensure that both your vehicle and garage are capable of handling the extra weight and size of your camper as well as making sure there is enough storage space for all of your camping gear. With careful planning and preparation, fitting a truck camper in a garage may be an option for those who don’t have any other available options for storing their vehicle.
