The Arctic Fox camper is one that slides onto the back of a truck. You don't have to own a large truck to get a camper like this, but you should measure the truck before you purchase the camper. There are different sizes that you can get if one does not fit right. These campers have a ladder on the back of them so that you can place other items on the top of the camper. You can store bikes, canoes and other large items on the top that you would normally place in the bed of the truck. A door is located on the back of the camper so that you can get inside. The sleeping area of the camper is located over the cab of the truck. The camper fits securely on the back of the truck by metal rods. You can get a camper that fits a regular size truck or a long-bed truck. The Arctic Fox camper can be taken off the road, or you can use the camper at your local campground. If you plan on going camping several times through the year, then you might want to consider keeping the camper attached to the back of the truck. You can get an Arctic camper online or at a local dealer who sells them. Some of the campers have a small refrigerator and television access. Some of them also come with a small toilet, but you will need a larger truck to place this style of camper on. The camper comes with storm windows so that you are protected while you are in the camper. Many of them have solar panels so that they do not use electricity. The closet is located on the wall, but you cannot fit many items in it. There are additions that you can request when you order your camper such as a larger step outside or awnings that go over the windows.
A camper jack is useful for jacking up a camper. It is helpful to get the camper on the jack of a truck or car for transport. Its main function is to lift up the camper.

Heartland campers are designed to be pulled by a truck. When you pull the camper, you need to use a larger truck because the camper is a good size. It is perfect for a family of about four or five. The side of the camper does slide out so that there is more room. When you are using this on a camping trip, you can sit at the table or on the couch and watch television. There is a bedroom if you plan to stay on the road for a long period of time. It is not advisable to ride in the camper while it is being towed.
They are made for just about all.

If he was at fault, regardless of whether he was pulling a camper or not, he would be responsible. Pulling a camper doesnt make you responsible for an accident if that was the only thing you did wrong. If someone rear-ended him, its their fault, if he rear ended someone or ran a red light, then yes, its his fault.
When I bought my new camper, my agent told me that I don't have to insure the trailer for liability because the liability extends from my vehicle policy. Although your situation is different, I'd guess that whatever is pulling the camper is also providing the liability insurance. I'd call your agent.
When you go on a vacation with pop up campers, you need to pack everything in a separate area. Some of your smaller items can fit in the camper until you get to the campsite, but most of your items will need to be left in your car or truck. You will probably have to use a large truck or SUV to tow the camper. Make sure you have the camper secured to the vehicle so that it does not come unhitched while you are driving. You can leave the camper attached to the vehicle after you reach the site, or you can unhitch it and leave it on the front tires and supports.
I wouldn't think so.

If you have a truck, you can get one of the Alaskan campers to put on the back of it. These campers simply slide onto the back of your truck, but you need to measure the camper and the back of the truck before you buy one. Most of these campers only have enough room for a bed. You cannot walk in the camper, but it is convenient if you need something to sleep in instead of the ground. Some of the campers will rise slightly to allow for more room. Avoid taking excess items such as clothing and cooking equipment in the camper because there is not enough room.

Lance campers are possibly the most versatile campers that you can get. There are many styles to choose from including campers that extend from the bed of a truck to ones that you pull behind your truck. Examine the camper that you get to be sure you can pull it with your truck because there are different kinds of towing packages. If you don't have a large truck, you can get a pop up camper that is lighter in weight. Most of the Lancer campers are not drivable. You have to have some way to pull them behind you or carry them on your truck.
