Who Makes the Lightest Slide in Truck Camper?

Truck campers are becoming increasingly popular with outdoor enthusiasts who want the comfort and convenience of a camper in a small, easy-to-tow package. But when you’re buying a truck camper, one of the most important considerations is weight. The lighter the camper, the easier it is to tow and maneuver – not to mention the less strain it will put on your truck’s engine and suspension.

Fortunately, today’s truck campers come in a wide variety of weights, making it easy to find one that fits your needs. Of course, there are some manufacturers that specialize in lightweight campers. In particular, one company stands out for making some of the lightest slide-in truck campers available.

Travel Lite has been producing lightweight slide-in campers since 1998. Their flagship model, the Falcon F-Lite FL-14, weighs only 1,737 pounds dry – but still packs plenty of features into its small frame.

The camper includes a wet bath with shower and toilet, dinette seating for four adults, and a queen size bed. It also comes with a two burner stovetop and 3 cubic foot refrigerator.

But if you’re looking for something even lighter than that, Travel Lite also makes an ultralight version of their Falcon F-Lite model. This version weighs just 1,385 pounds dry – making it one of the lightest slide-in truck campers on the market today.


For those looking for an ultra lightweight slide-in truck camper, Travel Lite’s Falcon F-Lite FL-14 is an excellent choice. Its lightweight construction allows it to be towed easily without placing undue strain on your vehicle’s engine or suspension – while still providing all the features you would expect from a larger camper.
