Loki basecamp is advertising it's new line up. https://www.lokibasecamp.com/

They show removable jacks as well as in the bed tie downs.
What company is making these, or is it there own?
And how does an in the bed tie down work?
Inquiring minds want to know!

I didn’t have much luck finding details about the jacks, tiedowns, or many other things I was curious about on their site, but I did see this, so I’d say the jacks are RT.

From truck camper magazine.

In the photos, there are no camper jacks. How does a LOKI Basecamp load and unload?

We have actually used Rieco-Titan electric jacks with about 500 LOKI Box units over the past 15-years. The jacks were employed to level and lift the units. We know the Rieco-Titan product well and are using them for LOKI Basecamp as well.

The closest I can find is this CGI image that shows a basecamp unit sitting on jacks, that I’m assuming are removable. I’m not sure why, but it appears they don’t have a single real picture on the website of the jacks.

Notice the pictures all show the camper on the truck, I find that odd because taking it off is what a truck camper is all about.

I agree, but that seems to be the case across the board when I tried to dig deeper into the details of any of the systems or accessories on the camper. Very fancy website, but it could use a little more depth.

RT jacks are good quality, so they’ve chosen well there. The only RT jacks like that I’m familiar with are manual though, so that image may not be an accurate representation of what they look like.

I will say this, all of the components they’ve chosen are high quality, well known brands that all tend to be on the spendy side. It’s no wonder the starting prices range from $95-$135K.

Agree, I know these campers are marketed to the outdoors type rugged individual but they always looked so uncomfortable and no toilet. LOL

they seem to have steel plates on the side of the camper where something slides in between the truck bed rail and the camper to lift it off. For off-road you would always want to remove the legs of course so they do not get ripped off.
Did you ask the company this question? Seems they would know better than any of us... or is this a sneaky way to get in a plug and website link for the brand?

Could be. Unless the OP returns we may never know. Or maybe it’s: if he never returns, we know for sure! [emoticon]

Anyway, I like the construction and perceived build quality of the unit. It’s got some nice features like the Webasto water and air heating unit. I’m assuming it’s the Dual Top ST diesel water heater/furnace combo unit. That’s five grand right there. It’s got a lot of solar, and a lot of batteries. I see a Redarc controller panel, so I’d bet there are other Redarc components in there as well. Those are all high quality, and high dollar Australian built units.

I don’t like the porta-potty, or hassock style toilet. You’d think that for a >$100K truck camper, they could have found a way to squeeze in a cassette toilet at the least.

The shower contraption….I don’t know about that for frequent use. Cleaning up, drying out and storing a soft-wall shower enclosure like that very often seems like would get old quick. Just the little experience I’ve had with putting away a wet tent, then having to make sure you get it out so it will dry and not mildew makes me question how well the shower will work when you throw in the soap, dirt, and bacteria that will present in a shower environment.

I don’t like that the only means of heating food is a portable induction cooktop. I get the “No microwave” and the “No propane” part, but Webasto makes a diesel fueled cooktop, seems like they could have fit one somewhere.

Just my impressions from what I could glean from the website.
