Our “Go North” truck camper trip to Alaska was our very first experience with truck campers, and one of our first questions was, “How do we get this thing in and out of the truck?”
We had 6 months to get used to loading and unloading this 2020 Lance 1172 Truck Camper on a 2019 Ford F350 Pickup. This video goes through step-by-step instructions to load a truck camper onto and off of a pickup truck.
Mounting and dismounting a truck camper can be daunting the first time, but with practice the truck camper can be either put on or removed quickly and easily!
The first time we unloaded the truck camper we took our time and were extremely careful, so it probably took a good 20-30 minutes. (We were pretty nervous!)
After several times taking the truck camper on/off and understanding each other’s jobs, we could do it in about 10 minutes.
The important thing is to take your time getting the truck and camper lined up properly when loading to avoid rubbing the sides of the bed, but we promise this gets easier with practice!
