Our family of 4 are dipping our feet in the Truck Camper waters. Ideally we’d like at least a queen with 2 bunks that can hold a 6’ teenager. We’d also like a decent size dry bath. Primary use for this camper will be to sleep in while traveling to national parks. Hard sided is a must because we camp in grizzly country and some spots require hard sided campers.We are buying the truck camper before the truck so no worries there. Decent quality would be good. New or used is fine.

I’ve looked at the Eagle Cap 1165 and 1200... and the Lance 1172 I believe. Really nice but the bunks and dinettes are small.

We’re also not opposed to setting up 2 cots in the camper if needed....

Any suggestions?

All dinettes I have seen are 6' long and about 48" wide, so definitely not for 2 -6 footers.
Beside custom-ordering something from Host, I don't think you will find something that fits your needs.

Four people in any TC for more than one night isn’t my idea of a vacation. Couldn’t the kids sleep outside in a tent? We did as kids and loved it while M&D slept in the station wagon. Two cots in a TC? You must be kidding.

If you can find a used camper like the link below, it may work. Bunks are 6 feet long.

Not sure about the dry bath part though.

Look at Host. They have a few options.

There are a few dinettes that are very long. Northernlite comes to mind as well.

My Lance 1131 comes close. 2 in the queen over the cab, 1 in the dinette bunk, and one in the flip out rear tent bunk, but that's not hard sided. Luckily the little ones are still little.

Except most dinettes aren't that long, only a few models.
OP, you're going to have to step up to the big Host campers or pop out models like he 1131 I think.
Same issue here, but now kids sleep in a tent or for 1 nighters, 1 takes the back seat of the truck other gets the dinette.
