How Do You Get a Camper Off a Truck?

Removing a camper from a truck is not a difficult task, but it does require some preparation and caution. Before attempting to remove the camper, make sure that the area is clear and that nothing can interfere with the removal process.

To get started, you will need to gather some essential supplies. This includes items such as a jack, wrench set, ratchet set, hammer, chocks or wedges, and some rope or straps.

Once you have all of your supplies gathered together, begin by jacking up the camper using a jack that is rated for the weight of your camper. Place chocks or wedges in front and in back of the tires to prevent it from rolling away as it’s being jacked up. Once the camper is raised off of the truck bed, it should be securely tied down with rope or straps so that it does not move while you are working on disconnecting it.

The next step is to begin disconnecting any electrical wires or cables that may be connecting the camper to the truck. Be sure to label each wire or cable so that you know where they should go when re-attaching them later. After all of the electrical connections have been disconnected, use wrenches and ratchets to remove all nuts and bolts connecting the camper to the truck bed.

Once all of these steps have been completed, slowly lower the jack until the camper is on its own wheels. Once this has been done carefully push or pull your camper away from your truck. Once it has been moved away from your vehicle you can proceed with loading it onto its new home.


Removing a camper from a truck can be done quickly and safely if proper preparation is taken beforehand. Gathering necessary tools such as jacks, wrenches and ratchets will allow for easy removal of any nuts and bolts connecting your camper to your vehicle. Once everything has been disconnected use chocks or wedges to keep your vehicle still while jacking up your camper off of its bed before slowly lowering it onto its own wheels for safe removal.
