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 [emoticon]

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.

Agreed that here in the West it is Lance, with Four Wheel as a close second. I see them of all vintages everywhere I go. But they are built here in California and have been for many years. Stats might be different elsewhere.

Maybe that's because nobody wants them and wants to get into another brand. [emoticon]

IMO, long-term resale value (of any item) is a more telling and interesting stat than sales/popularity.

I don’t think how many are for sale is necessarily a good measure. I see more Northwood than anything else. Maybe that’s because Northwood users use theirs. [emoticon]

In any case, we aren’t talking giant numbers according to RVIA shipments , there were 589 shipped in 2017 and 919 in 2018 for all brands.

In comparison, there were 137,086 of all types shipped in 2018.

Rarely see Northwood/Arctic Fox TC's east of the Mississippi River but sure do see several Lance TC's every day on the road, in store parking lots etc, or in CG's. We look for TC's as we have always had a various brand TC's ourselves constantly since 1965. Do see some Cirrus and a few Palomino's maybe in a week's time. Very rare to see a Bigfoot, Eagle Cap, Adventurer, or Northern Lite in a weeks time on the road etc or in a CG either in the Midwest as TC's are quite popular here as we know.

The tiger 4x4 seems to be the best I have seen looks like a clam shell design like bigfoot and a truck, and a class C really like the tiger design
