I have been searching for a used truck camper for the last few months and have now narrowed it down to two selections in my price range and desired length.
1) 1996 Alpenlite Silverton 11"...$ 5,200.00
Generator,AC,electric jacks,microwave. Photos show camper in good condition.
( NO swing out brackets on jacks which I require )
I am told this manufacturer uses an alluminum frame whis is a plus and is light for an 11 " camper. has front window in bunk which I believe can become a leak problem
2) 1999 Citation 10.6"...$ 6,000.00
wired for generator,microwave,electric start hot water,new battries,electric swing out dually jacks,fantastic fans. Photos show extremly clean.
I do not know if the frame on this camper is wood or alluminum but I do not see a bunk window. I heard this manufacturer builds good campers and can be used in cold weather.
Well, I welcome your thoughts. Anyone have or are experienced with my selections? appreciate your advice.
I do not want leaking and rot problems. I liked other makes like Lance but I understand the frames are wood and the rear skirts rot out. most have a bunk window also.
I liked Northland but I notice many ads on craigslist and kijiji admit to leaking and dry rot problems. Same with Elkhorn and Caribou.
I am waiting to hear on a 10" Kustom Koach fiberglass camper which has an offer but yet to be finilized. ( looks like a kodiak or bigfoot) but otherwise I am going to view these 2 selections and make an offer on one of them.
I have a 1989 3500 SLT extended cab Dually 454 gasser. air bags. Hope they are not too heavy?
Thank you. Brian. Chilliwack BC.
