nüCamp RV debuts the Cirrus 720, an all-new hard side, non-slide, wet bath, short bed truck camper. And the 720 is not the only new camper news coming from Sugarcreek.
This past September, nüCamp brought a truck camper prototype directly from their top secret R&D lab in Sugarcreek, Ohio to the Hershey RV Show in Pennsylvania.
About five minutes after the show opened someone posted the Cirrus 670 prototype on Facebook. A few hours later it hit YouTube. By the end of the first day the social media buzz machine had exploded.
Then the consumer questions came in hot and heavy… “When can I get one?”, “What does this thing cost?” and, “Where does the center of gravity on this camper fall a 2017 Ford F-150 crew cab with a five-foot bed and Yosemite Sam mud flaps?” Since the 670 was only a prototype, nüCamp didn’t have answers – yet.
The following week nüCamp rolled the prototype into the industry-only Elkhart Open House. We proceeded to photograph it like a gaggle of kindergartners with mom’s iPhone at a kitten petting zoo. I literally took over 100 photos of the unit.
Then the dust settled.
nüCamp returned with the prototype to Sugarcreek, Ohio. We published, “nüCamp Debuts The Cirrus 670 Prototype”. And everyone without a second floor office at nüCamp wondered what in the heck was going on with their tantalizing new creation.
Five months later, we have our answer. nüCamp absorbed the blizzard of feedback from Hershey and Elkhart and reworked nearly the entire camper from the ground up.
The final production version is leaner, meaner, and features a different name. Introducing the 2019 Cirrus 720. For the back story on the 2019 Cirrus 720 and its transformation, we contacted Scott Hubble, CEO of nüCamp RV.

Before we talk about the Cirrus 720, tell us about the process of prototyping the 670 and how that led to this new production model.
The development of the Cirrus 670 prototype was very educational for us. The initial prototype was too tall, too long, and too heavy.
Going back to the drawing board, we shaved a considerable amount of weight by adjusting the height, length, and core cabinetry. We also reassessed the standard features and options and found additional areas to remove weight while retaining the overall quality and appeal of the product.
The Cirrus 670 prototype led us to two different models. The camper we showcased at Elkhart was the aesthetic inspiration for the Cirrus 720.
