Extreme Weather Truck Camping Reports

When we rode the train the next morning we encountered the most beautiful scenery of fresh snow on the colorful poplar and evergreen trees. We saw elk and deer in the woods as we climbed to the pass. It was spectacular.” – Dan Forry, 1996 Ford F250, 2006 Palomino Bronco 1251

“We were heading west to Alaska on the Alcan Highway in 70-degree weather as a storm approached. Within 30-seconds, the temperature dropped to the low 40s. Then it poured rain so hard the wipers couldn’t keep up. Then it switched to large hailstones.

The storm lasted about 10-minutes, leaving a soupy mud surface on the gravel/dirt highway. Then, the temperature went back to the mid 60s. We never saw such extreme weather changes in 10-minutes.” – Janet and Jim Kaley, 2015 GMC Sierra 3500HD, 2015 Arctic Fox 992

Snow And Ice on Lance Camper

“Just before leaving on a three month trip to the southwest, we had 8-inches of wet snow that began melting as the weather warmed then quickly froze overnight.” – Dan Cooper, 2014 Ford F350, 2002 Lance 920

“We just got back from ten days in the Sierras. Above is a video of us getting totally hailed on with marble sized hail and running to the safety of the truck camper.” – Nolan Sturgeon, 2001 Ford F350, 2015 Wolf Creek 850
