How it all started
Jason grew up working at his family’s RV manufacturing company in Indiana and Donavon as a diesel mechanic and at his family’s RV dealership in Montana. On the trip, as they discussed their mutual distaste for quality issues that plagued the modern RV, born was the idea to create their small truck accessory.
Donavon built the first one (pictured here in his barn in 2019). In late 2019, Jason visited Donavon to check on his progress and found the design to be quite the marvel. In 2020, Jason brought the camper back to Indiana and began building the team to begin spinning up the company to make this one-of-a-kind product.
From an overnight in your backyard with your kids to a trip around the world, this camper is built for almost any adventure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a Skinny Guy Camper (SGC) weigh?
First of all, rude. Haha. It depends on the options that you choose, but somewhere in the range of 500-1,200 pounds depending on your model and trim level. Your Skinny Guy will be only cab high and will have a negligible effect on your truck’s fuel efficiency. Our design also allows you access to the space in your truck bed to store other gear you might want to take on your adventures.
How many people does a SGC sleep?
A SGC will comfortably sleep 2 adults. Get creative if you need to bring more adventure buddies. You can put the ones you don’t like as much (or the kids) in a tent on the ground.
How do I put it on my truck?
How do I store it?
With a SGC installed, is there still room in the truck bed for other things?"
How do I pick up my SGC?
Will it fit my vehicle?
What is the warranty?
If the problem started with you saying, “Hold my beer,” it’s probably not covered.
All of the components on the camper have a one-year warranty. Many of the components have their own warranty, which may be longer. The structural warranty, including the tent, is also one year. We have selected materials that are made to last. Due to wear and tear, the tent is the only component you should ever have to replace.
How much does a SGC cost?
The retail price starts at $15,500 and goes up to $29,500 fully loaded.
Is financing available?
Of course. We ask for a $500 deposit. Once your Skinny Guy is ready to head into production, we will check back with you and will ask for 20% of the total price of your wicked cool camper. At this point, you can also select your pickup location by choosing one of our awesome dealers nationwide. The dealership will help with the delivery, installation, and financing (if needed) of your product.
