RE: Best selling truck campers (by volume) ?

On West coast Lace beats all the competition hands down. Just go to local Craigslist and see what is on the market. Not a bad idea. I did a rough search of all campers on RV trader from 2017+ and this is the rough conclusion I came to for nationwide sales: 26% - Lance 18% - Northwood Mfg (Arctic Fox / Wolf Creek) 16% - Palomino 15% - Adventurer LP (Eagle Cap / Adventurer) 9% - Travel Lite 6% - Northern Lite 4% - Northstar 3% - NuCamp 2% - Host 1% - Bigfoot Of course this list isn't super accurate. It is missing some bigger niche manufacturers like Four Wheel Campers.

Best selling truck campers (by volume) ?

I was wondering if anyone knew of a list which showed the best selling truck campers (by volume). Speculation/discussion is fine too, it doesn't need to be based on hard facts. I am just interested in knowing roughly which campers sell the most. Thank you :)

RE: HOW to GET RID of a LOT of GOOD STUFF I Might Use Someday

Adam ~ Thanks Great Post. 80yrs of 'Depression Era' thinking " it you may need it..." is hard to unlearn. I will reread your post MANY times. TakeCare ~~ TravelSafe ~~ HaveFun Amen. It is harder than a lot of people think. Getting rid of stuff is contrary to our nature, especially for those born in the greatest generation. It makes sense because back then people lived with a buy-it-for-life mentality. You got married, bought a house and then furnished the house. Almost every house had the big old dining room complete with 8 person table, hutch, china cabinet, etc. Most people thought they would hand these down to their children but it turns out this generation doesn't want it. The "ikea" generation is naturally minimalist and many of them are forced to live in smaller condos where there isn't room for stuff anyways. The antiques businesses are overwhelmed with stuff, they won't take anymore. Those "china" sets that cost several thousands of dollars years ago are now virtually worthless. It is so sad to see. I commend you heavily for taking on this task and I assure you that you will find immense happiness from "decluttering". It is very therapeutic to let go of things. Imagine all the stuff you own and carrying it on your back in a backpack. Everytime you get rid of something, you get a little bit lighter and feel a little better! Good luck my friend!

17" wheels on DRW - is it worth replacing them with 19.5"?

For those of you with 1 ton trucks with 17" DRW's, how do you notice them performing and do you or have you thought about converting to 19.5" wheels.

RE: HOW to GET RID of a LOT of GOOD STUFF I Might Use Someday

Several years ago I began a "minimalist" approach to my lifestyle and I am just now finishing up. When I started I had a 2000sqft 4 bedroom house full of stuff, garage full of stuff and I was overwhelmed. I started listing 10 things for sale every week on craigslist or ebay. I gave anything under $10 in value away to charity. I held garage sales. Eventually I sold my house and got an RV and put rest of my stuff in storage but I hated paying for storage so I slowly dwindled that down too. It involved making some tough decisions like throwing out nice mattresses or donating precious items. All my photo albums and videos got put into digital format and I threw out about 100 photo albums and 100 VCR home movies. I donated buckets of clothing. I am proud to say after 4 years of hard work EVERYTHING I OWN is in my truck camper or in my small safety deposit box for important documents. I have no storage unit. Trust me, it is worth it! If you are ever anxious, tell yourself you only live once. Also, throw away anything that can easily be rebought at walmart or wherever. I would find myself stressing out about dumb things like ice trays "Will I want ice in the camper or not?". Well Walmart or dollar stores sell ice trays for like $1-2 so who cares! Toss em! In the end I found out the most important lesson for me... no matter how stressful throwing/donating things is, it was far more stressful to my health to keep them. Now I am free and I can go where I want and I have nothing tying me down, no expensive storage bills, no house with utility bills and upkeep!
