The Light Weight Shell Campers category has deservedly received a lot of attention in the past couple of years. The brands below show that today the consumer has a solid selection of quality built and designed brands to choose from. The lightweight camper category fills the middle ground between simple Shell/RTT set ups and traditional bigger and heavier Slide-in style truck campers.

Elevated sleeping area, comfortable RTT style bed, standing room, plenty of storage space and the ability to carry adventure toys on the roof provide an efficient and comfortable adventure platform.

At Super Pacific we want to spend more time in the wild, chasing our passions. We think you do too.

Our Switchback™ Adventure System sets you up to hit the road when the bell rings on Friday. Find your spot and set up your camp in mere minutes. Whether you drive a truck or an SUV there are plenty of ways to customize your set up for your unique pursuits. When not in use, your gear stows quickly in our streamlined hardshell and keeps your vehicle fully functional during the work week. Once your system is dialed in it’s just a matter of loading the cooler and you’re on the road.

The Switchback™ X1 combines the comfort of a hard shell rooftop tent, the versatility of an integrated gear mounting system, and the security of a commercial-grade truck canopy rolled into one ultra-light camping package. Think of it as your trusty side-kick for wild adventures big and small. Tel: 971 357 2513 [email protected]

Raised in beautiful but rainy England, Andy moved to the sunny climes of Southern California in 1995 and hasn’t looked back since. Two and half decades working in the outdoor, bike and surf industries has given him a thirst for adventure and living life without a ceiling. When not working on the website, he can be found surfing Californian beaches, or in remote mountain or desert areas, either primitive camping, mountain biking or embarking upon vehicle assisted adventure in the backcountry with one of The Adventure Portal rigs.
