Truck campers, Part 3: Boondockers love ’em


John Bach of Sacramento, Calif., selected his truck camper with its off-road capacity in mind.

Currently Bach lives full-time in his 2006 Northern Lite, Classic 9.6-foot slide-in camper that sits nicely in his 2005 Ram 2500 4×4.

Bach, who has been RVing for more than two decades, frequently takes his rig, outfitted with an 80-watt solar panel, into the Southern California desert and Sierra Nevada Mountains.

While he was camping in the Anza-Borrego Desert, “a coyote came right up to my rig and put his nose against my door window,” Bach said. “I always think of the national parks as places to experience wildlife, but there in the desert I experienced it up close and personal.”

In Part 4, we learn how two full-timer RVers and their guitars have all the room they need in their truck camper.
