Adventurer Unveils ‘Double-Slide’ Truck Camper
Adventurer LP has introduced a new double-slide truck camper with optional theater-seating dual wall-hugging recliners and a master bedroom with a California king bed (72 inches by 84 inches).
The 9-foot 116DS is also equipped with a dinette slide and a 14-inch-deep galley slide that extends from the rear of the unit. According to a press release, the 116DS layout can be accessed with both slides in the closed position.
The Adventurer 116DS marks the Yakima, Wash.-based company’s entry into the double-slide market. “The vision started from customer and dealer requests to build a double slideout model in the Adventurer’s lighter weight and value price point,” said Greg Tucknies, Adventurer’s sales and marketing manager. “We started with the ‘wish list’ we sent to engineering listing all the items customers want in a double-slide truck camper.”
Carrying an MSRP under $40,000, the Adventurer 116DS features a dry weight range of 3,600 to 3,700 pounds, large open floorplan with large panoramic view and huge exterior storage. The truck camper, designed to fit long-bed dually trucks, also has a dry weight of 3,794 pounds and is equipped with 41 gallons of fresh water and a center of gravity (COG) of 551/2 inches. It has a side entry on the passenger’s side and a dinette slide on the driver’s side.
The 116DS comes standard with a sofa that converts into a bed with a full-width, deep storage drawer underneath. New to the industry is ALP’s optional theater seating wall-hugging dual recliners with a center storage drawer. The interior has large windows featuring a panoramic view while the maple interior has a leather style accent offering a rich, residential feel.
The exterior is sided with new Lamilux 4000 gel-coat fiberglasses along with new graphics for 2014. The exterior features plenty of exterior storage under the dinette and a very large motorhome style cargo bay at the rear of the unit.
