2024 Adventure Truck Camper Sets Record at Quartzsite Rally – RVBusiness – Breaking RV Industry News

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is an excerpt of an article originally published by Truck Camper Adventure.

The 5th Annual Truck Camper Adventure Quartzsite Rally is now in the books with 403 campers present. The rally drew 686 owners from 46 states, six Canadian provinces, the Netherlands, the UK, and France. Without a doubt, this was the largest truck camper rally ever held, surpassing last year’s TCA record of 335 truck campers.

The rally is open to the owners of not only slide-in truck campers, but also chassis-mounted campers, truck toppers, DIY campers, and truck cabs.

An educational event with an emphasis on safety and responsible use of public land, all classes are taught by experts in their respective fields. The itinerary consisted of workshops and classes, live music, a truck camper open house, and a huge Saturday evening raffle with 40 sponsors that provided either prizes or free swag.

This is the 5th truck camper rally hosted by Truck Camper Adventure. The first rally was held in February 2020, two months before the COVID pandemic.

“We weren’t sure if a boondocking rally would fly, but it has in a major way,” explained Mello Mike, founder and senior editor of Truck Camper Adventure and event coordinator. “Previous truck camper rallies by others were held at RV parks with full hookups, so we weren’t sure if there would be any interest camping off-grid, but truck camper owners are a different breed. Boondocking is in our DNA. We had 55 truck campers and 98 people at the 2020 rally, 107 campers and 173 owners in 2021, 245 campers and 411 owners in 2022, and 335 campers and 592 people in 2023. Hitting the 400 truck camper mark this year was a major milestone we were aiming for and we were able to do it.”

The sponsors of the big, four-day event included Battle Born Lithium, LiTime Batteries, Goldenmate Batteries, nuCamp RV, Four Wheel Campers, Northwood Manufacturing, Kingstar, AT Overland, San Juan Vans, Tern Overland, Truma, StableCamper, Rugged Mountain, Host Industries, BundutecUSA, Froli, Hotomobil, Hellwig, Torklift International, Harvest Hosts, Elevation Off-Grid, SkyMed, Wolfbox, Omnia, Dragon Fly Tarps, SOG Cassette Toilet Ventilator, Nimbl, My Jetter, Happy Wanderer, Maxpedition, Car Generator, and For the Health of Our Pets.

The annual truck camper rally is hosted by Truck Camper Adventure, an online magazine for truck camper enthusiasts. The emagazine, which covers all types of truck campers including, slide-ins, chassis-mounts, truck toppers, and camper shells, is run by Mello Mike and Karen Smith. The web magazine’s readership averages 2.5 million per year. A growing force in the industry, nearly 40 of the biggest brands in the industry advertise with Truck Camper Adventure.
