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.

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.
