Are You A Full-Time Truck Camper?

Full Time Truck Camper Poll

Back in 2007, we only knew of three people who were full-time truck campers; author and speaker, Joei Carlton Hossack, and Laura and Sasha Jevitch. At the time, the idea of living on the road in anything smaller than a Class A motorhome or 5th wheel was far from mainstream, even among the RVing community. Somehow the concept of living on the road without a permanent home seemed to necessitate a large RV. A truck camper? You have to be kidding!

Story after story, the idea of selling your house and nearly everything in it to hit the road full-time in a truck camper has become a little less out there. If I had to bet, I’d say Dave and Cindy Gilbert’s article, Truck Campers Escape the Rat Race (first published in 2013 and then updated in 2021) is responsible for more people exploring full-time truck camping than any other article we’ve published. Their story became the proverbial Pied Piper leading many others to go full-time.
