Six-Pac Is Back

There’s nothing quite like waking up in a place where the only noise is the wind, and the
only sign of man’s encroachment is the gravel road leading to your campsite. For would-be
camper owners for whom cost is a concern, the Six-Pac SC-150RD allows for such back-country
access and is highly affordable. It’s not as plush and fancy as some of its competitors on
the market, but for a $9,610 MSRP you get a fully outfitted accommodating camper that can
take you a lot of fun places in comfort and style. We were also impressed by the overall
quality control evident in this camper, a sign that the manufacturer has done its homework
and has assembled affordable materials with care and craftsmanship. Given the limited
square footage of a shortbed pickup bed and a camper that doesn’t overhang the aft end of
that bed, there’s only so much that can be done in a slide-in camper. A rig such as this is
functional at providing clean, climate-controlled living space in a small package, but it’s
not a stretch-out elbowroom kind of environment. The Six-Pac cabover bed is a full 60 x 80
inches, so two full-size adults fit thereon with room to spare. There’s also a 33 x 74-inch
sleeping space when the dinette seat is folded down into a bed, so a guest can be
accommodated. The simple-but-complete galley has a two-burner stove and a single-bowl sink,
and those are adequate for meal preparation when the cook plans ahead. The counter space
nearby is fine as well. General storage space is on the slim side in this camper, as
there’s no hanging wardrobe. All things considered, the Six-Pac SC-150 provides a
delightful camping experience in an affordable package. It’s a tight fit inside when a
couple of adults get to meandering, but the Six-Pac is still a long shot ahead of a tent
for camping fun. Pick up the June 2004 issue of Trailer Life for full test impressions and
