Excellent condition 2012 Travel Lite 800, 1/2-ton truck camper. The camper has been meticulously maintained and updated to serve as a boon-docking backcountry/ski resort home base. There are no leaks, no smells, no issues. This is a turn-key camper, ready for camping today. The camper scale weight is approximately 1450 lbs dry. This camper requires a full size, 1/2-ton truck (1500 trucks, F150, Tundra etc.).

This is our second truck camper. Previously, we had an Adventurer 76R on the same truck pictured (Toyota T100). We loved that camper, but it had some shortfalls and space issues that we outgrew. When we decided to upgrade to a different camper, our main priorities were U-shaped dinette area that did not impede the hallway path, a toilet, and more modern amenities. Getting up in the middle of the night during a storm and going outside to do business got old. The Travel Lite fit our needs well and we haven't seen a better layout that fits a 1/2-ton truck.

Major upgrades:
- Factory installed (and outdated technology) Elixir 45 converter replaced with the current top-of-the-line Progressive Dynamics Mighty-Mini PD4045KA Converter. The main reason for this upgrade was to allow for lithium battery technology (more below).
- Original AGM deep cycle battery replaced with two, 100 amp-hour lithium batteries in parallel. This is double the battery capacity for still less weight than the original battery. The batteries have around 50 cycles of charge-discharge on them, so basically still new. We have been meticulous about cycling them between full and empty once a month, with storage at 80%. These are expensive batteries, and well cared for.
- 1000-watt continuous and 2000-watt peak pure-sine wave inverter. This install was done to allow us to work from the camper when needed primarily. It can easily power two laptops, extra monitors etc. We also used it for our coffee grinder, blending drinks, and other kitchen amenities.
- Two, 100-watt flexible solar panels and 30-amp Renogy charge controller. These panels were chosen because of their weight to efficiency ratio. We installed them by mounting to polycarbonate greenhouse sheets to allow for more airflow, while keeping weight to a minimum. Aluminum T-track was installed to mount the panels so that the panels could be easily changed out in the future.

The list of amenities included in this camper is shown in the photos. This includes a 3-way fridge, 18,000 BTU forced air furnace, 6-gallon water heater, outdoor shower, stainless steel sink, and 3-burner stove top. We have all original owners manuals and product sheets.

There is a 25-gallon fresh water tank and 5 gallon black water tank. The camper was winterized after every use. Camper is stored under a waterproof cover when not in use (cover included in the sale).

The bed is a side-to-side queen bed. We looked for this specifically because the camper fits much better than a north-south queen on a normal extended cab truck. The dinette table drops down to make a second bed.

Every system works perfectly. Happy to go through all of them with a serious buyer.

The shore-power cord, black-water tank equipment and outdoor shower tent (pictured) are included.

We recently inherited a 1-ton truck, which is the reason for the sale. We will be looking for a new compatible 1-ton camper to go with the truck. We are not currently shopping the T100 that the Travel Lite is on. We have a Leer 122 high top camper for the T100 with a bed-build that is more for overlanding. We intend to keep the truck for that purpose. If somebody is very interested in the T100 truck/Travel Lite camper package, we will consider it. Just know, the truck is worth more to us than what we are asking for the camper. That should give you a ballpark; we haven't really accounted for everything and what we would ultimately want for the whole package. No "package" deal, because we don't really want to sell it.

Also, we are in no rush to sell the Travel Lite. We will continue to use it while we look for our next camper. We are not currently going to consider offers significantly less than asking, and will adjust down the road if needed.
