Grandby 8'Some RVs are more fun than others. The Four Wheel Campers Grandby 8-foot model is one of those no-frills RVs that lets you have fun with a minimum of hardware hassles, and that’s what we liked about it. It provided comfortable, no-problem time in the outdoors.

What makes the Grandby a fun rig? It’s lightweight, which makes it easy to drive the pickup; it’s simple to set up in camp; it’s comfortable; and it’s compact, which means we can go anywhere we want without concerns about fitting into the campsite.

Four Wheel Campers has been building fold-down campers for more than 25 years. The company’s goal has always been to build a durable, high-quality, lightweight rig that can hold up while traveling to the most-rugged places a pickup driver might want to go. A full-size hardwall camper is a great adventure vehicle, but a fold-down, with its roof that raises to provide interior headroom, has a charm and functionality all its own. It also has some limitations, but a buyer will likely take those in stride while utilizing the fold-down’s specific features.

Most of the company’s campers have similar floorplans with a cabover bed up front, a kitchenette unit streetside and a sofa bed/dinette/storage arrangement curbside. The test rig also has a padded bench and storage unit up front at the forward end of the living space.

The Grandby is the largest model in the company’s product line, which includes campers sized for short-bed, mid-sized and imported trucks.
