What Is Inside a Truck Camper?

A Truck Camper is a recreational vehicle (RV) that is designed to fit inside the bed of a pickup truck. They can range in size from basic, lightweight models that sleep two people, to larger units that offer more amenities and can sleep up to six people. While the exact features of a truck camper will vary depending on the make and model, most will include some combination of sleeping accommodations, storage space, kitchen appliances, seating and bathroom facilities.

The sleeping accommodations in a truck camper typically consist of beds or sleeping areas for two to six people. Smaller models may include an overhead loft bed or dinette bench seats that convert into beds.

Larger models may have bunk beds or a separate bedroom area with a queen-sized mattress. Storage space in most truck campers is limited due to their size, but many models have overhead cabinets and shelves for storing items like clothes and food.

Kitchen appliances in truck campers vary depending on the make and model, but they usually include some combination of a refrigerator, stovetop or oven, microwave oven and sink with running water. Seating options also vary widely between models but can include swivel chairs, sofas and dining tables. Bathroom facilities are typically limited to just a toilet in smaller models, but larger units may also have showers.


Truck campers offer an economical way for adventurers to explore the great outdoors with all the comforts of home. Their small size makes them easy to maneuver while providing enough space for sleeping accommodations, storage space, kitchen appliances and bathroom facilities – all within the confines of your pickup truck.
