    Default Host Camper 4x4 Fuso with slide outs

    Just happened to find this. Looks like Earth Cruiser or ATW, but with slide outs instead of a pop top roof.

    Host builds vehicles for Earthcruiser, and Host makes pickup truck campers with slide outs. So it makes sense that they would try an expedition-style flatbed model of their own. The photo shows the camper on a Fuso, but it would fit nicely on an F350 flatbed, too.

    Being nearly 15 feet long, I would not advise that particular camper to be installed on a 1-ton pickup.


    Long wheelbase F450/550 sure, but certainly not a 1-ton.

    Interesting, I didn't know a Host builds vehicles for EarthCruiser. What vehicles are they?

    We helped HOST build a couple of slide out type campers on the FUSO platform when I first moved to the USA . There has been no collaboration for a number of years, did not really match up with our way of doing things.

    Thanks for the replies. After looking at their website and Facebook page a little more, it seems their main business is truck campers with slide outs. Still, interesting idea that gives a little more space inside. I also think their Expedition Vehicle is quite a bit less expensive than other options. Apples and Oranges maybe, but depends on your needs.
