At only 800 pounds, the Cave truck camper provides the outdoor enthusiast with the utmost in comfort, safety, and rugged reliability.
The company’s truck camper concept, manufacturing plan, and business model are completely different than anything in the truck camper industry, according to Truck Camper Magazine.
While other truck camper manufacturers have a factory, Cave Campers outsources 100-percent of their manufacturing and assembly. Cave Campers is available to handle customer service and warranty claims, but is otherwise not directly involved in the construction of their units.
Their material and construction approach is also a radical departure from RV norms. Cave Campers are constructed with bonded fiberglass panels with a honeycomb polymer core.
Sourced from a composite panel manufacturer in Illinois, these 100-percent composite panels are designed to push the strength-to-weight ratio and insulation properties far beyond what’s currently possible with traditional RV frame and lamination construction.
With its composite fiberglass construction and aluminum frame, this truck bed camper is lighter and tougher than anything on the market today.
The flooring is constructed of industrial rubber which allows easy cleaning by simply hosing it out—a feature no other truck camper can claim. That’s insane, and perhaps the easiest way to clean a truck camper we’ve heard of.
Plus the entire truck bed area is available allowing ample space to walk past others or store large items (tables, coolers, generators, skis, fishing poles, rifle cases, etc.).
Once the panels are competed, they are shipped to a Cave Camper selected assembly facility in Texas. When the camper shells are completed, the units are up-fitted with Rieco-Titan camper jacks, double-pane acrylic windows, heavy duty insulated doors, and LED interior lights.
The result is an 800-pound, all-composite, half-ton ready truck camper; wood-free, rot-free, and rust-free.
After the camper passes quality control, it’s either picked up by the customer, or shipped directly to them. Cave Campers only sells direct.

You can re-arrange the cushion and table configuration to accommodate individuals sleeping separately in two single beds or in one queen sized bed.
The Cave truck bed camper fits large items in storage over-cab (converts to child bed) and smaller items in two, full length shelves near the ceiling.
When it’s raining or snowing, you can open the windows just a crack, or all the way for airflow without getting the camper’s interior wet.
They also feature built-in screens and blackout shades.

To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
