Here are some of the stand out, “Things You Like” comments from the 2014 Truck Camper Magazine Reader Survey:

You live what you preach.  You travel in a camper.  I particularly like the camper reviews.

Love everything.  I’ve learned so much about truck campers without ever owning one.  It’s made me much more knowledgeable and sure that the camper we buy in 2014 will be the best one for our needs.

Great useful articles which are candid and objective, plus we love you guys!

You have a close relationship with your readers.  Discovery of new ideas related to truck camping.

It’s a magazine devoted to truck campers!  It is also weekly with a vast amount of info, or links to.

That it is web based.  No subscription fees!  Nice articles that ask good questions.

I like the camper reviews and pictures, and the tech articles.

Truck Camper Magazine is the closest thing to a truck camper encyclopedia, making it easy to compare different makes, and models.

We love your lifestyle adventure stories that you publish.  You are our go to website when we need any truck camper information.

You two are real pros, with a passion for what you do.  Your matching a truck to a camper was an instant classic.  Even though I’m a veteran truck camper, there’s still much to learn!

Good variety in articles.  No apparent bias toward brands.

Gordon and Angela do a wonderful job.  I just wish I had the time and money to visit places like they do.  I like the articles about tech, places to travel out west and interviews with other truck campers.

My dream is to live full-time in a truck camper, traveling to remote sites mainly in the American west and southwest.  I also hope to travel to all parts of the country and parts of Canada, all on back roads and boondocking as much as possible.  Due to a family situation, I am not able to do this now, but hope to within a few years.  Truck Camper Magazine inspires me and allows me to keep my dream alive.  I look forward to the twice-weekly articles.  I enjoy the photography of interesting areas.  I also enjoy the articles about gear and boondocking.  I learn something new every time I visit the site.  Thanks for providing such great information.  I hope to see you all some day at a rally in my new camper and truck, which will be my home.

I’ve met the publishers at an RV show and Truck Camper Rally; you made yourself immediately available and passionately answered several questions, all while letting just gotten lunch languish in the background.  You put me first, handled my needs almost overwhelmingly, and then after making sure I was satisfied, left me with a smile on my face that leads to more truck camper addiction, my favorite affliction.  TCM puts me first.  All of TCM is always available online everywhere on every device; I can’t lose or misplace it and it’s always neat and organized!  That is very important for an organizationally challenged male.  TCM makes me feel good.  Now excuse me while I go out to the neat and organized truck camper and sit in my cake!

Interesting stuff, seeing what others are doing.

Besides everything I clicked on, TCM is free and just keeps giving!

Good resource towards long-term plan to purchase truck camper.  I am currently traveling full-time in a fifth-wheel trailer.

Mod contest.

It has been a good source for finding reference sites.

Clean, clear, concise, and you respond to all my questions personally.

New gear for truck campers.

The knowledge gained from reading it.  It keeps the readers up to date on the industry and allows the industry to get to the consumer via TCM.

I like it because it represents the truck camping culture.  It is everything truck camping.  There is really nothing else out there for us.  All other sites and magazine related to RVs represent only the other recreational vehicles.  You do such a thorough and willing to answer our questions directly or refer us to someone who can.

Well written articles about truck campers that cannot be found anywhere else.  It is difficult to find relevant information about truck campers anywhere else and the website has definitely helped guide my decision to purchase a truck camper.

Informative articles.  Witty writing by the editors and readers alike.  TCM has definitely helped me make an educated and well thought out purchase decision.

What I like most is the coverage of new products and product changes by manufacturers to campers.  Without your website, I’d never know what was going on.

Keeping us informed about the industry trends, and keeping manufacturers alert to our needs.

I love the stories and pictures of travel.  When my wife retires I would love to be able to travel the west.

Concise informative information on truck campers.  I plan on purchasing a truck camper in the next few years.

It’s online, updated weekly; everything about it.

Just about everything.  You guys do such a great job!  I like how you allow other TCM readers who travel the freedom to share their adventures with others through TCM.  Another section I like is the Top Shots series.  We used the information and suggestions when we were planning trips in Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Rocky Mountain National Parks!

Owning a truck camper traveling around the country has been on our bucket list.  Thanks to all the wonderful info and real life stories we decided to not wait any longer and are going to make it happen this year.  Can’t wait!  Thank you.

I like how specific it is and the newbie corner has been hugely helpful.  Loved the Ricky from Poison article.

It tries to cover a little of everything in its limited allocation of space.

Nice to have something that is specific to truck campers.  We live on the east coast and there are no dealers nearby to get information from.

It is a good read and generally I find something of interest.

Hopefully it will help me make an informed decision soon.

The camper and truck modifications.

I like the stories and videos of people’s adventures.  I love to travel and have been through all but six states in the U.S.  I have mainly used a tent or a motel.  Now I have a truck and will be looking for a camper this year.  I won’t have to eat in restaurants or sleep in strange beds anymore.  The stories inspire me and hopefully in the future I will be sending in my own adventure to you.

Information on current innovations and developments related to truck camping.  Really enjoy the modification contest.
