Slide On Campers
Perhaps the least known category of the 4WD Camper group would be the slide-on Camper. Effectively it’s a 4WD ute and a Motorhome in one. That’s a huge benefit. Slide off the camper and you have the versatility of an everyday ute. You can upgrade the ute while still keeping the camper and vice versa. You can tow a boat behind it.
A slide-on allows you to “slide” the camper off the vehicle, either on site, or for storage at home. The big benefit is you are left with a vehicle, independent of your camper. But this is where it gets interesting. The choice of a slide-on is broad, from the basic to the highly comfortable. The choice of suitable vehicle is also very broad. Mixing and matching the two have numerous traps for the unwary. This book is intended to help unravel the puzzle, to simplify the path to enjoying the benefits of slide-on camping.

Pros & Cons of Slide-ons...
Pros: Offers the full versatility of a four wheel drive ute but with the added bonus of having your camper home on the back. You can slide the camper on or off - either back at home to store, or on site if you want the added accessibility of your four wheel drive unloaded.
Cons: Unlike a caravan where livable space is only limited by the length of the van, space on a slide-on is a premium, restricted to the limits of the tray area. Also, unlike a caravan, weight is also consideration. Unless your slide on is on a truck, the principles of minimalistic living need to be applied.
