Lance Introduces 2013 Flagship 1772 Camper

Lancaster, California-based Lance Camper Manufacturing Corp. introduces its new flagship double-slide version of luxury in the wilderness, Model 1172.

The new double-slide 1172 features giant windows and skylights that bathe the interior making it light and airy, Lance said in a news release. The “Super Slide” dinette is opposite the spacious dry bath.

All-new interiors feature warmer woods, beautiful floors, molded counter tops, and glazed raised panel doors.

The rear wall slides out with a sofa incliner, and with both slides open, “the interior living space is cavernous.”

“The 1172 is the definition of the ultimate flagship truck camper. If you are in the market for a full-sized luxury camper,” said Christine Arthur, Lance marketing specialist.

“Lance has put together the perfect package.”

2013 Lance features (standard and optional) include:

  • Aerodynamic Nose Cap
  • True 3-Way Refrigerator allows operation from 12 volt, propane or 110 volt sources
  • Back Up Camera
  • Remote Controljacks and slide room control
  • Insulated Hatch Covers snap in place to block weather
  • Roof Rack System
  • Enclosed Insulated & Heated holding tanks
  • LED Lighting
  • Skylights with retractable shades
