Currently have a 2009 Ford F450 dually King Ranch 4X4 with an Arctic Fox 990 camper (with slide) and it works well for now with the wife and I, there again, it's usually shorter trips for us. I pull an 18' enclosed trailer behind with quads, but the truck is well equipped to handle it, and works extremely well. Plan on getting a larger motorhome eventually, and just starting to do our homework on that now, as we feel we will need much more room than our current camper gives us. Have had many campers over the decades, but this has to be the best one we've come across to date, having all the amenities with the microwave, shower/sink combo, queen size bed, and the slide opens up the area nicely. Large fridge and stove/oven help in the kitchen as well.

Hope Full timing works for you, but we feel we'd need more than the truck/camper can supply us with. Best of luck!

I am considering full-timing with a pop-up truck camper. It is just me and my 2 cats. Hoping to go full-time next Fall.

If I go that route, I will trade in my F150 for a F250. Even pop-up campers are heavy.
