Livin’ Lite Announces Camplite Short Bed Camper

Wakarusa, Indiana-based Livin’ Lite Recreational Vehicles LLC announced Tuesday (November 22) it has expanded its Camplite truck camper line with a new 6.8 model designed specifically for short bed, half-ton trucks, and will introduce it at the 49th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky, that runs from November 29 to December 1 at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC).

According to a news release, the new model is a self-contained unit with all the amenities of a much larger truck camper while still fitting into a 6-foot, 6-inch bed with no overhang. The 6.8 Camplite truck camper also includes a unique exterior garage area that can hold a small generator and a number of other tools and items on its hanging rack system.

Other introductions by Livin’ Lite RV scheduled for the National RV Trade Show include:

  • New “Orbit” profile on the popular Camplite travel trailer series, which combines a painted exterior metal to “form a one-of-a-kind exterior look” in an ultra-lightweight camper
  • Wood look interior package featuring Azdel composites—the cabinetry is still framed with welded, tubular aluminum and the cabinet doors are still made of aluminum, but the faces feature Azdel with a wood-grain pattern.

President Scott Tuttle noted, “While our all-aluminum construction remains the foundation of our long-lasting, ultra-lightweight design, we have had some customers ask for a richer interior look that only wood can provide.”

Worth Pondering…
