Does this truck camper exist?

High quality, hard side, 4-season, relatively new, seating other than the dinette or bed, and usable with all slides closed -- including egress and ingress.

Thanks...Keith

To clarify my question, the additional seating would be a sofa.

Depend on what you mean by relatively new, but I have been drooling over the Host Mckinley for awhile; side entrance one slide (sofa) but would need a standard cab 1 ton to handle it.

The slides on many of the most recent vintage fill up the space and are not usable.

I personally prefer short trucks for parking and so look at the short bed TC's with really limit the options.

Good luck.

THe problems I see.
Hard Side: No problem
High Quality: Now that can be a problem
Truck Camper: This implies a very small unit.. For the kind of seating you want you need at least a large C, if not a B or A.

That's the major problem. You want a lot of seating for the bed of a pick up truck.

Not very helpful, you elitists out there pooh pooh the lowly truck camper, when in reality they are the most versatile of all the pickings out there. No extra axles to worry about blowing tires on, no extra licenses plates or fees, AND many of the offerings (I could name a half dozen) that are the equal in quality to anything out there in the dance floor sized campers and MH's out there. You get your 6 mpg and I get my 16, that's a big difference

I can go anywhere, park anywhere ALWAYS find a place to stay with no reservations.

You keep your big monster rigs, and I will keep my high mileage efficient warm comfortable TC any day. I have had several big tow behinds and got sick of always worrying about the schedule and where to stay next, yadda yadda yadda.

Just my opinion, of course, yours may vary..

LOL

Wow - "elitists"?!?!?!
The OP has a long list of must haves. By his own admission he is having a hard time finding something that meets all of them. Someone chimes in to support that it may be challenging and is tagged elitist.
Seems inappropriate.

Appreciate the inputs. As we continue our search for the truck camper that fits our RVing style I have to often remind myself that trade-offs are just a fact of life. Speaking of trade-offs, I forgot to list a dry bath as a priority -- not this is even more difficult.

This truck camper looks like it comes close to taking care of our desires...I'm just not sure about this manufacturer's quality factor as I've never seen one up close.

2014 Adventurer 116DS Double Slide Review

Anyone out there care to comment on Adventurer's build quality...or more specifically on this floor plan?

thanks...

Look for a used Big Foot camper.

The recently discontinued, but available slightly used, Lance 1191 would fit your needs.

George,

Thanks for your comment. I understand Bigfoot TCs are well built, but I didn't know they had a floor plan with sofa seating as well as dinettes.

Look at the new eaglecap 1200. The problem with big camper is they are BIG. I have a small fifth wheel for when we want some room, and I have a small 8.5 camper with no slides when we want to venture further afield.
As to Adventure quality, my 2006 has literally had zero issues other than roof vents becoming brittle and needing replacing.

The camper you are describing is the Okanagan 117DBL. They went out of business and the floor plan was picked up by another manufacturer. Don't remember who. OKANAGAN - Camper Floorplans
We owned the 117 for 8 years and loved it! But, DW didn't like making the bed. Sold it for our Lifestyle 36FW. But, access is not possible with the slides in.
