Have you guys seen this? After seeing the price it looks more like an April fools joke.
They seem to act like the idea of a truck camper is revolutionary.

Exactly!


If it was an 8ft-wide flatbed model with a slide-out; THEN the quoted price would be more reasonable IMHO.

It's the same problem that plagues most new camper manufacturers. They start small, and cost of production is astronomical. They need to make money so they price their product to make a profit. End result is a product that appears grossly overpriced when compared to established, large manufacturers like Lance.

This usually results in failure of the business, because they don't offer anything that can't be obtained much cheaper, except of course quality. Too bad people won't pay for quality.

Also:

Wet weight: 3915lbs

Does that mean if I put 1500lbs of stuff in the 3000lb "dry" camper, it will never weigh more than 3915lbs?
