In a recent report, the editors at Truck Camper Magazine reviewed the 2016 Cirrus 800, a nonslide, hard-side short bed truck camper with an opening front window, heated floors, seamless aluminum roof and more. The Cirrus was developed by partners Little Guy Worldwide in Massillon, Ohio, and Pleasant Valley Trailers in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
The following is an excerpt of that report. Read the full report here.
It’s not every day that we get to announce a completely new truck camper brand and model. To make things even more interesting, Little Guy is bringing a truly fresh design, material, and manufacturing approach to the truck camper marketplace.
Want an example? How about an insulated front window system, that opens. Yes, the 2016 Cirrus 800 truck camper has an opening front window system. Are they nuts, or brilliant?
It goes on from there. We honestly had a difficult time keeping the questions for this interview to less than 10 pages. In fact, it got so ridiculous that we cut the interview in half — Jim Belushi Samurai style. This is actually part two. If you missed part one, “Little Guy Announces Cirrus Truck Campers”, please start there, and then come back.
To dive into the 2016 Cirrus 800, we talked with Scott Hubble, CEO of Little Guy, and Allen Miller, Director of Research and Development for Pleasant Valley Trailers.
