Scout Campers, the new lightweight, off-grid truck camper brand, launched the second model of their fleet today, The Yoho 6.0. The Scout Yoho is the lightest hardwall truck camper in the truck camping industry, the company said, weighing a base weight of 913 lbs dry, sleeping up to four and built for mid-size trucks. The campers start at $19,240 USD.
The Yoho was developed in line with the Scout brand for campers who want a lightweight, highly-durable and versatile off-grid truck bed camper. The Scout Yoho is like a backpack for a truck, the company said, and inside it contains the camping equipment needed for off-grid truck camping adventures. The design also allows portability to take out and use the components outside.
The Scout Yoho differentiates itself from Scout’s first model, the Olympic, in its size, weight and minimalism. The floor length is 69¾” the exterior width is 74¾”, and interior height is 75”. There are some key feature differences too, like a large Gear Locker located on the passenger side (66 3/7 ” W x 17 ½” H x 6″ D), the option for the 45L CFX Dometic fridge/freezer and a new multi-functional design feature that can sleep two people – the Convertible Lounge.
With its “seat, sleep and eat” set up, this new Convertible Lounge serves as an open L-shaped style seating area, a dinette and easily transitions into 2 comfortable beds at night.
The Yoho truck camper comes with most of the same standard features as its predecessor, like the 160W Renogy Monocrystalline Solar Panel, the portable Yeti 1000 Lithium Power Station, the portable 4.9 gal Lifesaver Water Storage with built-in filtration, a Moon Roof and a Ratchet Tie Down System. Many of the same add-ons are available as well, like the Newport 4.5 BTU Real Flame Fireplace, the Rhino Rack 270° Batwing Awning, the portable Dometic 2 Burner cooktop, the portable toilet and more.
While the truck camper is smaller, Scout said it’s just as capable for vigorous adventures due to its pristine construction. According to the company, the Yoho campers are the lightest among all the solid wall truck bed campers available today. Built with aluminium exo-skeleton framing, these truck campers are durable and meant for 4-season travel. Their no-wood, composite structural panels will not rot, delivering an off-grid truck camper that will last for generations.
The Scout Yoho offers a new range of flexibility because of its small size and low weight among other truck campers. They fit the mid-sized category of trucks like Ford Ranger, Toyota Tacoma, GMC Canyon, Chevy Colorado and Nissan Frontier. At only 913lbs dry, users can now pack more gear and worry less about payload capacities on their off-grid, truck camping adventures.
