How Do You Seal a Truck Camper?

A truck camper is one of the most popular ways to enjoy camping and RVing. It provides the convenience and comfort of a full-sized RV, but with the added benefit of being able to go almost anywhere.

However, one of the most important parts of having a truck camper is making sure it is properly sealed against the elements. Without proper sealing, you could end up with leaks, drafts, and even mold or mildew growth inside your camper.

In order to properly seal your truck camper, you will need a few supplies. First, you’ll need some high quality caulk.

This will be used to seal any seams between pieces of trim or other materials that are not perfectly flush with each other. You’ll also need some adhesive sealant for any exposed areas where water could enter your camper.

Once you have all of your supplies ready, it’s time to get started on sealing your truck camper. Begin by inspecting all of the seams around windows, doors, vents and other openings for any gaps that may need to be filled in. For larger gaps or cracks in the trim or frame, use caulk to fill them in before applying the adhesive sealant.

Once all of the seams are filled in and smoothed out with caulk, it’s time to apply the adhesive sealant. Start at one corner and work your way around the entire perimeter of your truck camper. Make sure that you cover any exposed areas such as roof vents or skylights so that they are completely sealed off from outside elements.

Sealing a truck camper properly is an important part of owning one. With a few simple supplies and some patience, anyone can effectively seal their truck camper against leaks and drafts so they can enjoy camping without worrying about moisture damage inside their vehicle.
