The Eureka "Slide In" is a completely welded aluminum channel body structure.

Here is a link to pictures showing the structure upon which the "Slide In" is built. Judge for yourself NOW that you can see the base structure of the "Slide In" camper.

Thanks for posting. My DD is interested in a lightweight truck camper (she tows a horse trailer) and I passed the links on to her.

If i was interested in a light weigh pickup camper I'd certainly be interested because of the aluminum frame and quality instillation (SP?)! No rotting wood sticks in that baby in a few years!

But, I'm not...but I think it's a fine camper/trailer for the price.

The Eureka "Pull Behind" campers are also completely welded aluminum channel body structure just like the "Slide In" models.

These "Pull Behind" campers are also purpose built campers and are NOT "Converted Cargo Trailers" as suggested in an earlier post.

I was looking at the pictures of the model with a drop floor at the back. It's the only one with stand-up headroom, but it looks like it would be extremely vulnerable to tail strikes. Most drop floor designs I have seen lower the floor ahead of the axle for that reason.

Seeking Information Eureka Cab Over Truck Camper

Hi. New to Forum, trying to find my way around. Looking at the new Eureka Truck Camper with shower and 24" cab over. Contacted company, and too my surprise I did not get an over aggressive salesperson. Very little information provided. I tried the links below,(how structure is built etc.) but they are not working. Does anyone own one of these campers? Are you satisfied with it. Pros, cons? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I looked into the slide-in's last year at this time. There were pictures available on-line and the aluminum frame construction looked pretty good. They were just starting out and they and were changing designs and options lot. It was hard to get exact measurements and drawings but they said they would custom build one to my specs. I was looking for a 6 ft. camper where I could close my tailgate.
I was not aware of a pick-up cab over model but there finish quality has appeared to have improved, since the first models were really basic. I think they have changed their website 4 times in the last year. Also their state tax is 9% on the camper shells if picked up from the factory. If going that way I was going to stop by the factory but never made it.

I would double check that sales tax. It is likely not applicable to out-of-state purchasers. Might have to pay and apply for a refund.

Slide-in's are not considered motor vehicles or like a boat which is registered in each state and the tax is paid upon registration in your home state. You have to pay the local sales tax rate as if buying tent. The only way to get around the local tax is to have it delivered out of the sellers state like an internet sale.

Eddie, thanks for the information.What I gather is that this is a new model for 2017. EUREKA CAMPER 6X8 CAB OVER SLIDE IN. Did more research and found it is a very small company. With elusive information, and living outside US. I cannot see making the trip to view the trailer. Not too many 6' truck campers available.
