If you’re someone who appreciates the freedom to roam without sacrificing the finer things in life, the four-season Mammoth truck camper for long-box, one-ton dually pickups may be just the ticket — and it has options galore. One of five camper models built by Host Campers, the 8-foot-wide, 11½-foot-floor-length Mammoth features three slideouts, three wardrobes, bedroom access from two sides and a large bathroom. The company, based in Bend, Oregon, specializes in unique built-to-order campers and four-wheel-drive expedition vehicles.
Step into the Mammoth through the side door to cozy seating for two on the left. An option is to swap the sofa out for a laundry center or a wardrobe. Opposite the entry door is a U-shaped dinette, which can be traded for a 6-foot couch (both can be made into beds) and a movable high/low table. The galley offers good walk-about space, an 8-cubic-foot refrigerator, a three-burner range and a floor-to-ceiling pantry.
Midpoint is where you’ll find an entertainment center with an AM/FM/CD/DVD stereo and a 24- or 32-inch TV mounted above a 120-volt AC simulated fireplace with a 5,120-Btu heater (all options) within a freestanding unit. A large bathroom with a rolling door closes it off from the living area. Of the four bedroom choices, a 60-by-80-inch queen bed with a wardrobe on each side is standard. Optional are three bedroom layout choices, each with a king bed.
Outside, the Mammoth has almost 45 cubic feet of basement storage with a convenient 80-inch-long slide-out tray, and freshwater capacity is 65 gallons. Base weight is 3,360 pounds, and base MSRP is $49,236, with average prices for well-equipped models ranging from $58,000 to $68,000.
