Big Response To Major Appliances In Truck Campers

“Where would it go in a truck camper?  Never.  We’re camping and exploring the wilds, not Disneyland!” – David Kiel, 2007 Tundra, 2012 Phoenix Camper

“Not in a million years.  Seriously we’re camping.  Paper plates people.  Most campgrounds have laundromat and there is a Walmart around every corner.  Our freezer has a lot of room, so some food makes the whole trip!” – Sue Mathison, 1997 Dodge 3500, 2000 Lance 1030

“Nope.  Not a chance.  I believe in the KISS acronym – Keep It Simple, Stupid.  I go camping to get away from everything that makes noise, runs on power, or calls to tell me about a problem with work.

I do have a compressor refrigerator, stove, furnace, and a solar set up that runs everything nicely.  If you add more power requirements, then you need more solar.  Then you need more batteries.  Then you need extra equipment to lift the roof up.  Then the camper is too heavy for the truck.

If you give a mouse a cookie, he will ask for a glass of milk.  Just say no, and keep it simple.” – Neal Haymore, 1990 Ford F250, 1997 FWC Grandby

“I would consider a washing machine.  Maybe a freezer.” – Shellia Sargent, 2012 Ram 3500, 2009 Lance 971

“No.” – Ron Pucul, 2016 Ford F-350, 2006 Lance 1055

“No.  There are more important things like a sine wave inverter, surge protector, and such.” – Ken Dawson, 2017 Ford F350, 2017 Eagle Cap 1165

“Interesting question.  I actually have two appliances in the camper now; a small refrigerator/freezer, and a furnace.  I never thought I would have them.

Back in the good (bad?) old days of the early 1970s when I built my second camper, I upgraded to an ice chest and a gas catalytic heater.  I thought that was living large!  In my first camper I carried non-perishable food and an extra blanket.

So while I can’t see ever wanting a dishwasher or laundry set, life has taught me to never say never.” – Richard Mount, 2013 Ford F150, 2013 Four Wheel Camper Grandby

“A dishwasher would end a lot of fights even while camping.  A chest freezer would be more useful than a refrigerator.  Good meat is hard to find camping.” – David LaVine, 1994 Ford F350, old S&S
