Lance Camper Altimeter Is A Four-Season Adventure House On Wheels

The overlanding segment is well represented at this year’s SEMA Show and one of the most visible exhibits is the Lance Camper “Altimeter” – and not just because of its size.

Consisting of a 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty truck and a Lance Camper 855S Truck Camper attached on top of it, the Altimeter project is described as a four-season adventure vehicle designed for adventure at any altitude. That’s because it comes with “all of the modifications needed for serious off-road and overland travel.”

It even comes with its own matching Yamaha YXZ 1000RSS side-by-side. The Lance Camper 855S offers room for four and a dinette slide out, all in the the short bed of the Super Duty.

Lance Camper chose the F-350 Super Duty as a platform for this project due to its powerful 6.7-liter Powerstroke V8 diesel engine and four-wheel drive capabilities. To upgrade the rig for off-road exploration, an ICON Vehicle Dynamics Stage 5 suspension system was added, providing 2.5-inch lift.

Hellwig Products supplied front and rear sway bars to allow better control the weight of the truck camper while air springs were added to bring the ride height back to level when towing the Yamaha YXZ 1000RSS.

Both the truck and the side-by-side feature Raceline Defender Wheels shod in Maxxis RAZR MT tires. Other modifications include a Warn Ascent front bumper, Zeon 12S Platinum winch, Rotopax water and fuel storage, auxiliary LED lighting on the front bumper and under the hood from KC Hilites, and more.

Rounding off the package are three 100Ah Deep Cycle batteries, a DryRack by Malo’o for swimsuits/wetsuits, a rechargeable flashlight by Maglight, as well as UTV and camper speakers plus charging accessories.

      Is there an homage to Sir Thomas Crapper?

    I would love to see one of these in a much tighter package for those looking to do some outdoor camping on a budget. A budget of $50,000-80,000 or less that is. An off-road teardrop trailer could be cool too so long as the price stays below $100,000.

    I’ve been dreaming of buying some sort of RV for years. And certainly ‘Camper Trucks’ are considered. Trouble is… I have an imagination. And if at 2 o’clock in the morning I hear a bunch of hillbillies telling me how ‘purdy’ they think I look – I want to be able to go straight from the bed to the driver’s seat without stepping outside.

      great morning mind picture…reminds me of the song “Uneasy Rider” by Charlie Daniels. LOL

        I wonder if ‘old green teeth’ ever went back to that bar?! lol
