I currently have a 16' Scamp which I enjoy immensely. The problem I am having is that I bought a drift boat that I enjoy as much. I have been thinking of selling the Scamp and buying a camper since that would solve the camping and boating issue. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what brand of campers don't leak and are a good buy?

Thanks;
Steve

Steve, are you asking about slide-in pickup campers? The only current brand I know of that is fiberglass is Bigfoot, and they're pretty pricey. I saw a four-year-old used one for $16k on one of the "For Sale" sites the other day.

Northern Lite also makes truck campers

The few I have seen are very nice.

WeisCraft also makes a truck slide in version of the Little Joe called the Fishin Hut. You can get info at weiscrafttrailers.com.

Pickup campers, except some of the pop-up ones, are somewhat heavy and top-heavy (usually not recommended for 4x4 trucks because of high center of gravity).

There was a company in South Florida making molded fiberglass pickup campers just a couple of years ago, but I don't recall the name.

Dunno how heavy your drift boat is, but can you put it on slanted rack on truck, with winch?

I think you mean Roamer - http://roamerrv.com/

Edited to add: Too many hits and their server goes down. At least that is my guess as to what happens with them.

Exactly right, Benita!! I just couldn't find it in my memory or with Google, my friend...

PS - I even remembered that they are in Nokomis! In my bookmarks now.

That Roamer weighs 50 pounds MORE than my 16' Scamp (base weight for both units). Seems like it would be pretty top heavy to me, especially if you had a 4x4 truck. I'd rather drag that much weight than carry it!

Just hold off a while. It will probably show up on ebay.
