2015 Adventurer Model Year Changes

Adventurer is the Premium value leader in the Industry! We offers the lowest weight campers in the industry and the best pricing of any quality truck camper on the market today. Last year we made a ground up review of the Adventurer product with many upgrades, new features and weight reductions so this year many of the upgrades were complete… but we still found a few more nice additions for 2015… See all of the changes here.

Happijac Announces 4800 Heavy Duty Jack System

Happijac began research and development on a higher capacity camper jack to accommodate the increasingly popular double and triple slide truck camper market.  With 2,800 pounds of capacity per jack, the Happijac 4800 would have forty-seven percent more capacity than their next strongest camper jacks.

The 4800-HD began shipping in late 2012 for testing at Adventurer Manufacturing on their Eagle Cap 1160 double-slide and 1165 triple-slide truck camper models.  The new jacks were an instant success with the Adventurer engineering team and were featured on all 2013 Eagle Cap 1160 and 1165 models.

 See all the new changes for 2014

When Greg Tucknies, National Sales Manager for Adventurer Manufacturing, told Truck Camper Magazine that they were discontinuing five models for 2014, Gordon White at Truck camper Magazine was shocked.  “Never in the nearly seven year history and tradition of Truck Camper Magazine have we heard of a manufacturer discontinuing almost half of their existing camper line-up”.  What could possibly explain such a radical change? History explains that change… Read the exclusive interview for the whole story!

By nature, truck campers are an interesting lot.  Some of us are happy leisurely driving our truck campers to full-hookup campgrounds and relaxing for a week or more.  Others have to be constantly on the move, avoid campgrounds like the plague, and go wild with every off-road opportunity imaginable.  The attitude with this second group seems to be, “bring it on”  Read the rest of this story on TruckCamperMAGAZINE

From Fifth Wheel to Slide In – This couples experiences in their new Adventurer 86FB After much anticipation and a little frustration, we have finally taken our first excursion in our new  Adventurer 86FB.  This was just an overnight, close to home to give us a chance to familiarize ourselves  with the rig – get things set up the way we want them and just see how it is to go from a huge fifth  wheel to a slide in.

Around the World: Canada

mg_3345We started our trip in Abbotsford, B.C. on July 20th. A bit tired because of the long flight from Amsterdam the day before and the time difference, we went to Fraserway to pick up the truckcamper we bought. We only saw pictures and descriptions on the internet and had telephonecalls and sent e-mails with Fraserway, but we never saw the unit for real, so we were really excited.

Around the World: Route 66

route66truckcamper(September – October 2010) The start in Illinois

We love driving route 66! It has a real nostalgic feeling, it gives you the change to meet interesting people and see interesting places on the road, and the driving part self is fun too because it will take you off the interstate and sometimes you really have to make an effort to find the right way.  Route 66 is actually a bunch of all different roads in 8 different states, that are connected and  that all together was the road from Chicago to LA in the early days. Officially it doesn’t exist anymore and some parts of the road are gone, replaced by the interstate or other roads. That’s why you really have to look where to go and read the description very carefully to make sure you don’t miss a part. For us, this makes the trip even more interesting.

Around the World: Hawaii Part 1

beachSun, sea, beaches and volcanoes. Aloha!

We are now in the air and flying from Los Angeles to Hawaii. We want to visit 2 islands in Hawaii: the Big Island (Hawaii) and Ohau, the island where the city of Honolulu is located. We land in Honolulu and will fly the same afternoon to the Big Island.

Around the World: Hawaii Part 2

biggerwavesToday we fly to Ohau. The airport in Kona is small and completely outdoors. Such a wonderful climate. During this flight the seats are not reserved so we can sit wherever we want. But by this time the flight is not even half full, so we are asked if we can sit throughout the plane to more evenly distribute the weight. When we arrived in Honolulu we get our rental car and drive to Makaha Valley.

Around the World: Fiji

straw-roofSun, sandy beaches, ocean, palm trees – Nadi

When we arrived in Fiji we felt a little tired. During our flight we crossed a couple of time zones and we lost one day. We felt a bit light in our heads. In the arrival hall of the airport some men were playing music and were singing. We were being welcomed with traditional music from Fiji. Youri danced to the music and received a flower behind his ear. We already felt less tired. We were in Fiji!
