Gecko camper flips and folds to make your truck home - New Atlas
The standard electrical package includes a 105Ah AGM battery, three 12V outlets, a fuse panel, and LED lighting in the kitchen and storage areas. The interior of the camper shell serves as the "downstairs" and features an L-shaped sofa with room for four adults. The 75L water tank and self-priming pump deliver water, and an available shower package supplies a hot outdoor shower. While most of Gecko's materials focus on its use as a truck camper, it can also be removed and stood on four legs, as the company demonstrated at the Melbourne-based 4x4 show. Gecko also offers a dual-cab model with an added alcove-style children's sleeping area over top the truck cab. Instead of trying to stuff a kitchen into the small camper box interior, as in truck campers like the EarthCruiser GZL and Quantis Marq , Gecko has built a trailer/canopy-style kitchen outside. The driver-side panel flips up and serves as a bit of cover, providing access to a simple kitchen with slide-out dual-burner gas stove with grill, drop-down countertop and available slide-out, drop-down refrigerator.

Installing the Torklift SuperHitch Magnum 30K Hitch Receiver and SuperTruss Receiver Extension - Four Wheeler Network
That’s more than what many receivers are rated at without an extension. The likelihood of that happening is directly proportional to how full the tank is. Yep, ours was full so it took a while before it was feasible to drop the skidplate and retrieve the washer. Sitting lower is a standard 2-inch while the upper is a 2 1/2-inch. Since larger campers usually require an extension to clear the rear overhang, there’s a lot of leverage and forces involved. For the latter, the Magnum 30K comes with a reducer insert that fits far better than the Ram factory ones do, keeping rattles and movement to a minimum when using a regular 2-inch ball mount in the upper position. Here’s the only opportunity we know of to use two BOLT locks (which adapt to work with your truck’s ignition key) on one receiver. One thing we’re not crazy about is that the receiver tubes are angled up about 2. 5 degrees, supposedly to help with the departure angle when using long extensions. It’s highly unlikely that the Magnum 30K will be the weak link in your towing system, and they it’s available for most common pickups, all without a need for drilling any holes. Now, before you ask, “Why would I want a receiver that is rated to tow much more than my pickup is capable of. ” consider that there’s nothing wrong with having that extra capacity. Yes, the SuperHitch Magnum 30K costs more than lesser receivers, but it’s also two receivers in one. With Torklift’s SuperTruss receiver extension sticking out 48 inches (the SuperTruss is available in lengths from 21-60 inches), the Magnum 30K is still rated at 12,000 pounds and 1,200 pounds of tongue weight (with weight distributing). Let’s use a pickup truck fitted with a slide-in truck camper as an example. Source: www.fourwheeler.com
EarthCruiser shrinks off-road expedition camping down to Tacoma size - New Atlas
The GZL starts at US$36,000 with the standard specs, and options include additional LED lighting, an exterior awning, an induction cooktop and an inverter, along with the solar and lithium electrical add-ons mentioned above. The lower door has an integrated set of steps, making it easy to get up to pickup bed level. An included folding tripod lets campers use the dinette table outside. Campers enter through a hatch with claw-like upper and lower strut-supported doors, creating the feel of boarding some kind of spacecraft. A 78 L fresh water tank, 6 L water heater and automatic pump provide the hot and cold water. The upper bed folds away into the alcove to provide more headroom for the dinette, and the removable table can swivel to help occupants get in and out of the benches. The GZL features a cabover profile that pops open at the back with help from gas struts, providing 6. 9 feet (2. 1 m) of headroom at its highest point (29 in/74 cm from the top of the upper bed mattress to ceiling). This design provides more permanent countertop space and gets the stove out of the way when you don't need it. EarthCruiser also shows photos of a stove built atop the kitchen block counter and mentions an indoor/outdoor propane stove, so there's... This pop-up design gives it a lower profile than other slide-in campers, and the smooth, rounded edges of the fiberglass only help in creating a sleek look on the road. There's no separate washroom, so a removable shower curtain serves to partition the corner of the camper for washing, a 6. 5-foot (2-m) shower hose connects to a hot water hookup on the kitchen block, and a floor drain keeps the water flowing onward. The model we saw at Overland Expo East earlier this month split the usual kitchen combo of stove and sink up, putting the sink, countertop and 40 L fridge/freezer on the main kitchen unit against the driver-side wall and moving a drop-down stove... 4-in (357-cm)-long GZL slides into the short or long bed of a Toyota Tacoma or the bed of a Nissan Frontier, adding about 850 lb (386 kg). The monocoque fiberglass cabin shell is insulated with 20-mm insulation. The main 55 x 77-in (140 x 195-cm) upper bed extends out from the alcove over the driver cab, and the four-person, two-bench dinette converts to a second 45 x 65-cm (115 x 165-cm) bed.
