Can You Store a Truck Camper in Your Garage?

Truck campers are a popular way to enjoy the outdoors and get away from it all. With a truck camper, you can camp in remote places where you wouldn’t be able to with a traditional RV. But, with their larger size, can you store a truck camper in your garage?

The answer is yes – but with some considerations. The first thing to consider is the size of your garage.

The average truck camper is 8-10 feet long and 6-7 feet wide. This means that if you have an average two car garage, it will likely fit, depending on the size of your other stored items. If you have a one car garage or a smaller two car garage, however, it may be too large to fit.

The second consideration is the weight of the truck camper. Most truck campers range from around 1500 – 3000 lbs., depending on their size and features. Some smaller garages may not be able to support this much weight without reinforcement or modifications; so always check with an engineer or contractor before proceeding.

The third consideration is access into and out of your garage. Truck campers are bulky items that can make maneuvering through tight spaces difficult and potentially hazardous for people and property alike!

Make sure that there is enough room for both the camper and any other stored items to navigate through safely.

Finally, keep in mind that if you are storing your truck camper in your garage during winter months (or if you live in an area that receives snow), it’s important to make sure that there is adequate insulation from the cold temperatures outside. This will help keep the interior of your camper warm, dry, and free from moisture damage.


In conclusion, while it’s possible to store a truck camper in your garage, there are some considerations such as size limitations, weight restrictions, access issues and temperature control which must be taken into account before doing so. If all these criteria are met then storing a truck camper in your garage can be a great way to protect it from the elements and ensure that it’s ready for use when needed!
