Lance Camper Manufacturing. Corp. announced the launch of a specialty media and events rig called the Altimeter. According to a press release, the rig follows the success of past projects, including the 2015 debut of the Hellwig Overland Edition on an Ecoboost F150, and in 2017 the Rulebreaker built on a Nissan XD Titan. Both featured Lance 650 campers.
The Altimeter utilizes the Lances 855S, its largest offering for short-bed truck owners. The floorplan offers amenities such as large holding tanks, standard queen size bed, large wet bath and a dinette slide while easily accommodating four people to sit or converting into a bed that sleeps two. The unit used for the build also touts a custom vinyl wrap, a prototype Truma Aquago water heater, Truma Varioheat furnace and Battleborn lithium- ion battery system.
The camper is placed on a 160-inch WB 2019 SRW 4×4 crew cab Platinum Ford F350 with a host of upgrades including: Hellwig air springs and sway bars; Icon vehicle dynamics suspension; KC lights; Maxxis tires; Raceline wheels; Torklift International support equipment and Warn Industries bumper and winch.
Additional features include a Daly visual wrap, Malo’o rack as well as Maglite, Scosche Industries and Sherptek products along with a wrapped-to-match 2019 Yamaha YXZ.
The project began from the premise that a truck camper is the ultimate overland adventure hobby RV platform.
