Truck Camper Dry and Wet Weights
Truck camper base dry weights have been provided by the manufacturers. Be aware that (a) each manufacturer has different standards and options that are included or excluded from their base dry weights, and (b) very few truck campers leave the factory without additional options. Make sure to add the weight of additional options for your truck and camper matching calculations.
The Truck Camper Magazine Buyers Guide uses a standardized equation to calculate truck camper wet weights. Starting with the manufacturers base dry weight, the equation adds the full fresh water weight, full hot water heater weight, full propane tank weight, battery weight, and 500 pounds for stuff.
