Lance Camper Mfg. Inc. showcased four truck campers at the 2019 RVX Show, including the Altimeter truck camper rig. Truck Camper Adventure reported that the Altimeter is built on the Lance 855s camper and mounted on a diesel-powered 2018 Ford F-350 four-wheel drive truck.
“We brought four campers to the show,” said Bob Rogers, Lance’s director of marketing. “We displayed the Lance 650, targeted for half-ton trucks, the Lance 1172, our best-selling model and biggest camper, and the Lance 995, a single slideout model for long-bed trucks. In a separate display, we also revealed a custom build using the Lance 855s that we’re calling the Altimeter. This is a custom build using a totally stock 855s using a custom wrap.”
The Altimeter consists of a 2018 Ford F-350 SRW short-bed truck, powered by the 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel, with a Lance 855s single slide-out camper mounted on top. Showcasing the rig’s towing versatility, the Altimeter also includes a trailer with a matching Yamaha YXZ 1000R utility task vehicle (UTV) for extreme off-roading.
While the short-bed camper is a totally stock unit with a few experimental elements thrown in, the 4×4 truck has been modified extensively for off-road travel and includes a Stage 5 Icon Vehicle Dynamics 2 1/2-inch suspension system, Maxxis Razr MT 37-inch tires, Raceline Defender 935BX 18-inch wheels, a Warn Ascent front bumper with a 16 1/2 heavy-duty winch, and a Magnaflow Pro Series exhaust.
