Last week we told you about Lance RVs and why their construction methods, commitment to Green engineering, and wealth of four-season options make them one of our go-tos for the best truck campers and lightweight travel trailers. This week we want to take a closer look at some of our favorite models and share with you some new things Lance introduced for 2016.
Those Truck Campers That We All Love
Lance does truck campers like no one else. This extremely versatile RV type is excellent for hunters, couples and families, and is an ideal choice for anybody who also wants to tow a boat, ATVs, a horse trailer or cargo trailer. Want to get completely off the grid? A truck camper is a perfect choice. Want to load up the kids and hit the campground? A truck camper can do that too. Looking forward to that cross country road trip you’ve always dreamed of? A truck camper is an affordable and comfortable way to see the nation. And when you own a Lance truck camper, you can trust that you’re going to get years of use from it because it’s built to last.
Lance offers campers in lengths from 6’ 10” to 11’ 11” and they have models that sleep from three to six people so you can get exactly what you’re looking for, whether it’s that camper for a couple or the model that will accommodate all the kids and some friends too. They have truck campers for ½-ton or ¾-ton pickups, and models that will work with 6-foot short bed or 8-foot long bed pickups. Dry weights can be as little as 1,639 pounds and include options like double or full wall slide-outs that give you the ultimate in living space, and extra long beds for those of you who usually have your feet hanging over the end of an RV bed. You can get dry bath models that are ideal for family camping, and the flagship 1172 model gives you both dinette and sofa seating. With all these options, you’d think it might be hard to choose, but Lance makes it easy for you to figure out which truck camper works best with the model of pickup you own or are considering purchasing. Just head to their website to explore your best options, or come down to Guaranty and we’ll walk you through the choices.
Lance’s Ultra-Light Travel Trailers
The trick to the perfect lightweight travel trailer is finding something that is towable by your vehicle, is economical to travel with and still provides you with all the comfort and amenities that you need to make the perfect camping experience. That’s the glory of Lance’s Ultra-Light Travel Trailers—they’ve already thought of everything for you. That’s why they were chosen by Trailer Life as one of the top “Loaded and Light” travel trailer choices. On a model like the Lance 2295, you’ll get an almost 7-foot-long dinette slide out for extra living space and options like a central fireplace, private front bedroom with a queen bed, a pull-out outside kitchen, large flat-screen TVs, big rear bathroom and more, but you’ll still have a dry weight of just 4,185 pounds! This is the beauty of the Lite-Ply and Azdel construction; Lance travel trailers are both lightweight and durable, offering you the economy you need and the amenities you want.
Lance also makes it easy to figure out which model is the right one for you. You can choose from models that range from 15-feet to 22-feet long and sleep four to seven people. If you know the tow rating for your vehicle, head over to the Lance website and match the perfect trailer to your tow vehicle, whether your tow rating is 3,500, 5,000 or 6,000 pounds. You can also come down to Guaranty and we’ll show you your options.

Lance Toy Haulers!
Lance began building toy haulers in 2015, and their 2612 Toy Hauler promptly won the 2015 Top RV Debut Award! Keep your eyes peeled as these begin to roll onto the highways; they’re going to be spectacular.
Guaranty became a Lance authorized dealership a long time ago because we recognize RV quality when we see it, and we’ve never regretted the choice. This manufacturer has been building a lot of the best truck campers for half a century, and now they’ve added both top quality lightweight travel trailers and toy haulers to their RV lineup.
