Adventurer Manufacturing announces the 2014 Adventurer 910DB, a nine-foot, hard-side, single-slide, dry bath truck camper for long bed trucks. Check out the new Super U and California King.
What would happen if the industry simply listened to what the consumers wanted, and built it? This might seem like exactly what they should be doing, but a consumer wish list doesn’t have to take into effect the weight, cost, and overall complexity building such a camper might entail; never mind safety codes.
In our seven years of talking with the industry on this very topic, it’s clear that consumer feedback is a vital part of their new product development, but it remains part of a larger data model that includes a wide range of other factors. It’s actually impressive when a company is able to translate and balance consumer feedback and produce a camper that hits the requested mark.
Which brings us to the all-new 2014 Adventurer 910DB. Adventurer recognized a consumer demand for a nine foot truck camper with a dry bath. This camper would be geared towards truck camper owners who tow, but want some of the luxury features typically found in larger truck campers. With that wish list, Adventurer designed a camper that is currently unique in the marketplace; a nine foot dry bath.
To give us the low down on the 2014 Adventurer 910DB, we talked to Greg Tucknies, National Sales Manager for Adventurer Manufacturing.

TCM: Does the 2014 Adventurer 910DB replace any older models in the Adventurer Manufacturing line?
Greg: The 910DB is a brand new floor plan for Adventurer. While it doesn’t replace an older Adventurer model, it certainly fills a void in the Adventurer product line. Specifically, we needed an innovative nine foot camper with a dry bath.

TCM: Why did Adventurer need a nine foot camper with a dry bath?
Greg: We work RV shows year round and listen very carefully to customer feedback. Again and again, customers told us they wanted a nine foot floor plan for towing, but with a dry bath and other luxury features not typically found on nine foot floor plans.
Before designing the 910DB, we didn’t have a nine foot floor plan with a dry bath. In fact, I believe the 910DB is currently the only nine foot dry bath model on the market.
