I’m with Emory dog and had two Capri’s and they were great for what you are talking about. After going on some long stays I’ve been through three other campers and now run a smaller Lance and it’s great when staying over three to 14 nights. Look at some rodeo sights as that is we’re I bought my Capri’s and good luck buddy!


Through God all things are possible! Thank him every day for the beauty he provides.

There are some Facebook groups that have some good ideas and what people wish they had in a 6.5 truck camper set up. Lance camper group, truck camper living, truck camping, truck camper living, etc.

I would use the showers at campgrounds or parks , but would want a jon in the camper so I could do my usual 4 times a night pisses (yes I am old) , over cab bed, storage for gen, roof top AC, counter wash basin with drain , can use jugs with petcock on counter for water. Couch/extra bed for added angler if needed, storage bins , awning on back over door, maybe on side. Any cool ideas ?

They already make those, its called an Alu-Cab.
