In addition, Lance also has announced enhancements to the 2018 truck camper lines.
“Lance continues to refine our segment leading truck camper line up,” National Sales Manager Gary Conley says. "Revising every model we offer to accommodate the new Ford truck bed configurations so that inordinate amounts of lift or spacing are not required was a herculean task by Randy Hunter’s Research and Development Team."
In addition to the design modifications needed for proper Ford fitment, Lance has added the latest technology “flat-bottom” microwave that eliminates the old-school turntable type microwave. It also added the “Keyed-Alike System” which provides a single key solution for both the entry door and storage compartment doors. Additionally, most models were also given strategically placed steps to make access to the cab-over area easier.
With a total of nine hard wall models ranging from the half ton designed 650 to the ever popular short bed single slide 855S to the flagship double slide 1172, Lance Truck Campers continue to offer innovative lightweight hard wall truck campers to the market.
