Buy used truck campers online through sites such as Camping World, RV Trader, eBay and Craigslist. Many of these sites contain listings from both private sellers as well as dealers, which means that the exact terms of each sale, including payment method and delivery options, vary significantly between posts.
Anyone considering buying a used truck camper should be familiar with the camper lifestyle before making the purchase, as it differs greatly from both traditional camping and RV travel. One of the biggest differences in the smaller living space in a truck camper compared to other types of mobile dwellings. Truck campers are small in size and typically consist of a single room. Campers also don't feature any kind of internal power source, which means no heater or air conditioner and no electrical outlets for powering different devices, such as a computer or television.
In a standard camping scenario, the camper has a tent placed in a campground with a great deal of open space around them. Many tents also feature window and see-through areas to help enhance the feeling of space and avoid feelings of confinement. Camping in a full motor home offers the camper many amenities similar to a traditional home, such as a bathroom with running water, electricity and heating.
