Can You Put a Camper on a Utility Truck?

Utility trucks are a great option for those who need a vehicle that can haul a lot of gear, but don’t necessarily need the extra passenger room of an SUV. But what if you want to use your utility truck for more than just hauling cargo? Can you put a camper on a utility truck?

The answer is yes, you can put a camper on a utility truck. There are several different types of campers that are designed to fit onto the back of utility trucks.

These range from small pop-up campers to larger slide-in campers and fifth wheel trailers. When choosing the right camper for your truck, it’s important to make sure that the weight and dimensions of the camper are within recommended limits for your truck.

When installing a camper on your utility truck, there are several things to consider. First and foremost is safety; ensure that all components are securely fastened and that everything is in working order before hitting the road. You’ll also want to make sure that your brakes can handle the extra weight of the camper, as well as check that all lights and electrical systems are functioning properly.

Another important factor to consider is fuel efficiency. Utility trucks typically get better mileage than heavier SUVs or pickup trucks, so adding an additional load will affect how much fuel you consume. Make sure you factor this into your decision when choosing which type of camper is best for you.

Finally, if you plan on travelling with your camper, make sure to check with local laws about road regulations and restrictions for larger vehicles. Depending on where you live, there may be certain roads or highways where larger vehicles like campers aren’t allowed.


In conclusion, it is possible to put a camper on a utility truck with proper precautions taken into consideration such as safety measures and fuel efficiency. However, it’s important to research local laws regarding restrictions or regulations for larger vehicles before taking your camper out onto the open road.
