From sales to warranty support we are here to help you with your camper any way we can. Keep in mind that we are a small shop with limited resources, so we do not offer comprehensive service or restoration. Please give us a call if you have any questions about what you're looking for and how we can help.
Yes, please. We are not a large retail store and also super low pressure. This helps us keep our schedule dialed and make certain we are available to serve you properly. Booking schedule here.
We do offer a lot of models! FWC makes a model to fit just about every single truck bed on the market. Each model will fit best in a particular truck based upon the truck bed/size. To quickly find what is available for your truck we encourage you to check out our What Fits My Truck guide in our navigation bar at the top of this page. And don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.
Super simple! Well, aside from you having to select the exact options you’re looking for. Once we have a quote dialed for you the process is 15% down cash, check, or card. Then the balance due within 7 days of camper’s arrival in Colorado. In most cases final payment is made the day of install. Balance payments are made cashiers check, bank wire, or prearranged financing.
In the majority of the states in the US, sales tax is be based upon where the exchange of tangible goods takes place, and the sales tax rates set by the local municipalities. Sort of like buying a bottle of water when you’re traveling – you’ll pay whatever sales taxes are where the exchange of tangible goods (where you bought the bottle of water) takes place.
In a handful of states, (Washington, Oregon, Kentucky) sales tax on a truck camper will be treated like a motor vehicle and the amount you’re taxed is based upon where you reside. This is simply because those states will require you to register and plate your camper just like a motor vehicle. However, in the majority (40+) of states including Colorado, where there is no registration for a truck camper, tax will be based upon where you made the purchase.
What does all this mean for you? We have our business located in a pocket of Denver that has nearly half the tax of the surrounding area! We are only 4.75% sales tax. And if you’re shopping around wondering, is it cheaper to drive all the way to another dealer that doesn't have sales tax in order to save some money? We can assure you, once you account for fuel, food, and other travel expenses you will be on the loosing end of that deal. Not to mention your time and hassle on the road attempting to save a few bucks. We're a local, family owned company, and would be happy to earn your business. Please ask if you have any questions or concerns regarding sales tax and we'd be happy to help.
This is what Four Wheel Campers charges us to deliver a camper from their factory in Woodland, CA to our shop in Denver, CO. This covers the cost of a delivery. It will save you a lot of time, money, and hassle to just pick it up at our shop in Denver. However, you're welcome to pick up at the factory location if you wish to avoid the fee. Please ask us for more details.
Some customers will choose to finance their purchase. We have provided a few options for your consideration below. When shopping around loans be sure that the financial institution you're working with understands the product is a "truck camper" and not a traditional RV. Not all banks will finance on a truck camper and that can help save time and be sure everyone is on the same page from the get-go.
Rocky Mountain Four Wheel Campers & Four Wheel Campers has no business ties or direct dealings with any of the banks listed. We have NOT partnered with any of these banks or credit unions, and we do not get commissions for any loans they might fund. The links above are for reference only. All financing and loans are offered through each financial institution and should you decide to use their services, you would be dealing with them directly.
It is rare that we take a trade-in, but we do occasionally. It must be a case where an existing Four Wheel Camper owner is looking to upgrade to a different model they would be purchasing from us. And, it would need to be a late model that was well cared for. Let us know if you have any questions if you’re interested.
We offer consignment services if a seller does not want to deal with posting their camper for sale and fielding inquiries from interested buyers. If you have a camper you’d like to sell please reach out to discuss our fees.
The main sleeping area is in the cab-over section of the camper. The seating arrangements can also turn into an "extra" bed if you need the room for others. The standard bed in most models is approximately a queen size. There is an optional king size where the bed will extend even further, making for the largest sleeping area FWC offers. This will also allow an customer to sleep east to west (side to side) or north to south (front to back) depending what they prefer.
It is model dependent but anywhere between 6’4” and 6’6”.
Every model FWC can be optioned with a portable cassette toilet. A cassette toilet stores waste in an unseen cassette cartridge underneath the toilet. Once the cartridge is removed, the contents are released by unscrewing a cap and dumping into a standard toilet or waste station. FWC also offers a built-in cassette toilet as an option for Fleet, Hawk, and Grandby model campers with the front dinette seating floor plan. The built-in cassette toilet is essentially a larger/taller version of the portable version and a more familiar fixture to what you have at home. The cassette for the built-in version is larger than the portable and also accessed via a small door on the outside of the camper.
You betcha! There is an optional water heater and shower (indoor/outdoor) available on most models. Don't hesitate to let us know if you're' not sure whats available for your particular situation.
Four Wheel Campers “Easy Lift” roof system is raised by one person from inside the camper. The included gas struts help make this process super easy, even for our vertically challenged customers or those concerned about having enough upper body strength.
From the time you arrive at your destination it takes about 90 seconds to raise the roof. This is done manually. No electronics or automation is used. Each camper roof end is simply pushed up, one after the other. The folding lift panels on both ends lock the roof in the "up-position" once you've pushed the roof up all the way.
We believe in this simple yet tried and true method for raising the roof. We know its only a matter of time before the "power goes out" and that is why we stick to the manual and reliable system we have used now for over 50 years.
We'd be happy to let you try it for yourself when you make a visit to our showroom so you know first hand just how simple and easy it is!
The roof is designed to support up to 1,000lbs of an evenly distributed snow load.
When storing luggage, coolers, kayaks, canoes, etc. on the roof, we recommend keeping the total gear weight under 100lbs. The less gear that is on the roof, the easier it will be to raise / lower.
We offer several roof rack options to meet customer needs.
For most trucks we install forged eye bolts in specific locations in the truck bed. Two in front and two in the back of the wheel wells. They include backing plates underneath the truck bed for reinforcement.
The base of the camper is manufactured with stainless steel attachment brackets and interior access ports. This enables four turnbuckles to hold the camper firmly in place. In addition to a safely mounted camper, our system is hidden and not seen outside of the truck. It eliminates the awkward looking chains, turnbuckles, and vehicle anchors seen on most traditional truck campers. Not to mention our system eliminates the possibility of getting snagged by bushes or trees in an off-road environment, or even being hit in a parking lot.
Note: Late model Tacoma & Tundra models require a slightly different mounting method due to the composite material bed compared to a traditional sheet metal bed.
The factory tailgate included with the pick up truck is required for the Project M topper style campers.
Slide-In Camper or Shell:
The Four Wheel Camper slide-in models are designed around the tailgate being removed. In most cases the camper would stick out just past the tailgate opening preventing it from closing if you left it in place. Removing the tailgate saves a significant amount of weight off the rear of the pickup when the camper is installed. Leaving a tailgate on can also impact ability to access the spare tire, tow hitch, and the painted surface facing downward/facing the roadway generally gets pretty beat up. Not to mention that climbing up on the tailgate and then bending over to get inside the door is challenging compared to stepping-up from the ground and thru the short door. Lastly, we have cameras that can be plugged into your factory harness once your tailgate is removed if you're concerned about being able to back your truck with the mirrors alone. The only time we leave a tailgate on is when someone installs a camper that is too long for their pick up truck, and needs the extra support. For example, this can occur when you have someone with a 6.5’ bed and wants to install a 8’ grandby instead of a 6.5’ hawk. Sometimes people want the extra room inside the camper or have plans to upgrade their truck. While there are some drawbacks, it is possible to leave the tailgate down and install the camper.
Not really. But there is certainly a learning curve. Removing the camper is very simple. The process involves disconnecting the electrical pig tail and internal camper tie-downs to the truck bed and then raising all four camper jacks. This is a simple process with a cordless drill. Once the camper is raised a couple inches out of the truck bed the truck can driven out from under the camper.
Reinstalling the camper will take you a bit more time and that is just because the process involves positioning the truck under the camper and trying to get it centered in the bed. Then lowering the campers corner jacks. Once the camper is in position on the truck bed, the four internal camper tie-downs are reconnected to the truck bed and the electrical pig tail is installed. Thats it!
Remove any existing toppers or bed cover systems. And in general bring us a fairly clean bed that has been swept out and not full of sand or gear. Thats it!
Slide-In Camper or Shell: If you happen to have a plastic drop-in bed liner, that will need to be removed prior to your install. You will also need to remove the tailgate. And in general to bring us a fairly clean bed that has been swept out and not full of sand or gear. Thats it!
If you own a 1/2 ton or mid size pick up you will also want to consider doing a rear suspension upgrade prior to your camper install. This will reinforce the rear end of the truck so you're not sagging real low when the camper is installed. There are many options available from airbags to full suspension upgrades depending on a customers budget and intended use for the rig. We don't complete vehicle upgrades but can help answer questions and also recommend local shops that offer those services.
Be sure your flatbed conversion is 100% completed prior to the camper install. Please be sure to coordinate the details of your particular tray with us, so we're certain the installation will be successful. And in general to bring us a fairly clean bed that has been swept out and not full of sand or gear. Thats it!
The short answer is no. We don't complete any vehicle upgrades OR customization to the campers beyond what Four Wheel Campers already offers. But we can help answer questions and recommend local shops that offer the type of upgrades or customization you're looking for.
When you bring us your truck for installation it will take a few hours to prep your truck for your new camper. This includes the wiring for charging so the pickup truck can trickle charge the camper batteries while driving. It also includes the wiring for running lights on full size pickups. Lastly, it includes the anchors installed in the bed and our attaching the camper in the truck. We also complete a thorough walk-thru so you understand your new camper and how its features operate. We generally set aside the majority of a day for camper installs.
We generally set aside the majority of a day for camper installs. We like to get started with installs in the morning and have them ready for walk-thru by mid afternoon. Your best bet is to drop off the truck for install, and have an Uber or friend pick you up so you can spend the better part of your day doing what you want.
