My wife Sue and I have been on a quest to find the perfect expedition vehicle for weekend trips around California, and for ‘someday world travel’. Last year, we checked out the Sportsmobile and Four Wheel Camper factories. I had heard about XP Camper on ExpeditionPortal (as well as an RV.net thread where the RV crowd was much more critical of the price point than the expedition crowd), and I had taken a video of an XP Camper unit that was on display at OverlandExpo last year.
There’s no doubt about it: The XP Camper is expensive. MSRP is almost $70k, vs. anywhere from $10k from a mass-produced Palomino camper to $30k for a Hallmark camper. So the first question is whether the XP Camper is worth the price. After visiting the facility and talking to the owner Marc for three hours, the answer is an unequivocal ‘yes.’ Marc started making XP Campers because he wasn’t satisfied with anything on the market. And for the right buyers, the thought that’s gone into his work, its design, and the resulting value, will be obvious. However, that will likely be a small niche of the truck camper market, which is already a small niche of the overall RV market. Marc is aware of this, and will be introducing a smaller camper called the “V2″ for Tacoma-sized trucks in the future.
We walked away incredibly impressed. Below are some in-depth videos showcasing the XP Camper, as well as a number of pictures with annotations. You can find a full photo gallery of XP Camper pictures here. If you want to research your options a bit more, read this full write-up titled “Our two-year journey choosing a pop-up camper”
