Rick: We use the Schwintech slide mechanism. If we’ve had problems with the Schwintech, they’ve been so minor that I have not heard about them. It’s been a good system for us.

TCM: How many batteries does the 2015 CampLite 8.4 have, and where are they located?
Rick: We have room for one battery in this camper. They are located on the driver’s side sidewall on a pull-out tray.
Above: The CampLite 8.4 features two twenty-pound propane tanks
TCM: What are the propane tank sizes?
Rick: There are two twenty-pound tanks on the driver’s side.
TCM: Can the optional air conditioner run on a portable Honda EU2000i generator?
Rick: Yes. We’re using 9.2 Polar Cub that can be used with a Honda EU2000i generator. We also have the option for a 13.5 Penguin air conditioner. We recommend everyone gets the 9.2 Polar Cub because it runs off a portable generator. I lived in a CampLite truck camper last year and traveled all over the country in extreme heat. The 9.2 Polar Cub does really well.
TCM: Tell us about the standard bumper and entry step system for the 2015 CampLite 8.4.
