Great video. Came here from the flatbed tour and I'm looking forward to watching a bunch of the videos. If you can, please think about doing a video on how the truck/camper performs off road. I currently have a FWC on a flatbed and I'm interested in the trade-offs for a larger and better equipped camper like the Cirus.

Great video! Comprehensive and very well done! Curious what your battery system is? We are not a fan of generators, they tend to ruin the peace and quiet for everyone, but the Honda is one of the quietest. In our RV we have 300 amps of lithium batteries and can run everything for several days (likely even more if somewhere you can top up with solar). Does this model come with lithium? Last, are you in anyway sponsored by Cirrus? Just helps to know.

Hi, thanks for watching. The battery system is a custom design and I’ll have more information about it coming soon. When we don’t use the laptops our batteries last for weeks. However, we now use the microwave, hair dryer and AC more often when power permits. It’s been really nice having the extra juice. No sponsorship with Cirrus/NuCamp. If we were, we would make that very clear in the beginning of the video. Keep in mind, this video was purely about the reasons we purchased this camper, it’s not a full review of how it’s held up or any of the pros/cons. We plan on doing a 2 year review and going over some details of the repairs and problems we have had (very few). We also want to make a video about the research process. But I have about 8 videos in the pipe like to complete before we start on that.

This is one of the best produced videos I have seen, not to long, very well communicated, everything you talked about was pertinent no worthless small talk. I have been thinking about a small trailer, or class B. Class B’s are now over priced, a small trailer grand design imagine 17MKE for example. After watching your video I am seriously considering a truck camper either the Cirrus you have or a small Lance, thank you for what you do.

I have talked about it, but not a specific video. We made 3 upgrades/mods. Upper and lower stable loads (found a good deal on eBay). And I replaced the shocks with Bilstein 4600s. Next step might be a sway bar, but I haven't decided yet.

I think Cirrus builds the best looking truck campers, inside and out. And I also like the Alde system, and the stargazer window is my favorite item. I hope it doesn't leak over time. I also just wish Cirrus would build their campers like Northern Lite and Bigfoot truck campers. Their two piece fiberglass molds are superior to the way all other truck campers are built. And lastly, I wish Cirrus had more solar, more lithium battery options, an inverter, and a more powerful pre-wired way to charge their camper batteries off of the trucks second alternator. A quieter generator would be nice, too. Other than those improvements, I love the Cirrus!

Great video. It pays to research what you’re buying and especially something you’re going to be living in. Looks like it suits your needs. In my case the truck I bought was being sold as a package deal including a camper. A Lance 992 with 2 slide outs. But the type of camping we are planning on doing it will suit us. The extra room with the slide outs is nice although the camper is heavy. 4500 lbs. I did some research on different brands and liked the northern lite made in Canada. But it has no slide outs. After having the slide outs I kind of like them. I was curious about your hot water heating system so I’m glad you covered that. I’ve got a lot to learn we only got the camper last year and only had it out twice before winter. I enjoy watching your travels. There’s some beautiful country side in the USA. Safe travels.

Thanks for watching and commenting! It sounds like you got a great package deal! I looked and looked when we were buying and never found anything that worked for us. There are many days we wish we had slides, we would love some extra space. However, there are also many days we are happy to have a simpler setup. It's all about trade-offs. I agree that Northern Lite is really high quality and I love the clam shell design. When I compared features, size and price, it just didn't tick all the boxes. If I had a magic wand, I'd make the perfect camper for myself!

Watching your video - looks really good so far but Questions: Is there an option for the windows come with built-in screens? How is the weight of the Cirrus (heavier/lighter than other campers)? I agree that slide-outs add to the 'complications' list, I wouldn't want them either. I'll definitely have to check out their website.

How's the durability been? I'm new to your channel, but I see you do some rough roads and am wondering about the fit and finish after two years. Is everything still square and opening and closing properly? No leaks or other problems. I worry about racking in the frame. I've looked at a couple used campers that the frame was racked out of square. I am downsizing from living in my 40' class A full-time to sticks and bricks with a truck and camper setup similar to yours for expedition type traveling from a home base. I'm camper shopping which is what brought me to your channel.

I'm planning on doing a full review of the durablity/longevity of the rig in the spring around our 2 year mark. For now, its been really solid. I check on the seals and gaskets regularly. The structure has been really good, stiff and no signs of sagging or movement. Door and hindges have held up well and have only needed a little adjustment. I did have to disasemble the bathroom door knob and lubricate it when it started to get sticky. Now that I think of it, its been really solid and reliable. A few small issues with trim and things like that, but nothing important. I'll be going to NuCamp in the spring to have some warranty work done. The list consists of, a lose hinge (which I already fixed), a sticky bathroom door knob (which I already fixed), some UV cracked exterior trim, which they will replace, and a squishy area under the side wall. The squishy area appears to be a section of the Azdel that didn't get enough glue, had a bubble or simply came unglued. It's not a significant issue, but since it's covered by warranty, I'm going to have it fixed! All in all, I'm very happy with the camper. Only time will tell if it lasts. I plan to keep making videos and will include any information that we can find regarding the camper over time. If you are looking specifically at Cirrus, I would suggest joining the "Cirrus Truck Camper Owners Group" on Facebook, you will find answers to just about every question in there! Same goes for any other brand of camper. Happy shopping!

A couple question: #1. Will your Honda generator run everything turned on at once? #2. Do you remove the generator from storage bay when you run it, like maybe on a hot night when you need the air conditioner on, so it quiet in the camper? #3. Is there any power in the bed space near the pillow side of the bed? My wife uses a cPap machine and we need power up there!

@Stonyboot Thanks for taking the time to answer. I found the video on the generator so Im watching it now.

I'll answer using the same numbers: #1. No, it will run one major appliance at a time, A/C or Microwave or Hair Dryer. 2000 watts is pretty much the limit. #2. Yes, we remove it and run it on our front rack when we need to run it for long periods. If you scroll through our other videos, I have done a couple videos relating to how we use it. #3. There is a 120v outlet at the head of the bed.

Is the Cirrus a true four season camper in terms of protecting the tanks , pipes and wondering about the insulation for retaining heat especially in the winter ? It is one of the camper brands on my list , how does it compare to other brands for year around use , all four seasons ? By the way , great videos !

4 месяца назад
Stonyboot +1
Stonyboot

It is a 4 season camper. Fully enclosed and heated. If your primary use will be winter camping, a camper like Northern Lite or Bigfoot might be a better option. If you plan on mostly warm weather camping with the occasional winter trip, a cirrus works well. Since it’s aluminum framed, you will have more condensation than a fiberglass or wooden camper. Another great option, with a Truma heating system is Kingstar. They have excellent build quality and insulation.

I hear you on the space. I wish i could have 10 slides for space. But, I chose this camper for those reasons. I'm hoping NuCamp comes out with a 920 Slide model, but I have no idea if that will ever happen. And we LOVE our Alde, we talk about it like a pet sometimes.

Really enjoy viewing your videos. Plenty of great content. No time to binge watch all of them - yet. Soon! We take ours off truck every chance when staying 4 days or more & lower to ground storing bike rack & ladder underneath. There's a small 'shelf' above door where we keep our spices held in place with a spring curtain rod - similar to what we use in refrigerator. Both work well. Love skylight to stargaze! Did watch a wind gust blow from no where and snap it off! Oops. Beware. Nu-camp sent us replacement to Denver dealer. ($500!) On to next video......

Thanks for the sub! It is an all season Camper, we’ve used it in the teens, with great success. The aluminum frame does cause some condensation in the corners, but we stay toasty warm.

Hi Guys, Been following your adventures for a while now; Jill and I love what you're doing. We are planning similar in the UK, but on a smaller scale of course - our pickups are a bit smaller than yours! I have a couple of questions about your Alde system: How much gas does it typically use in a day in cold weather (and what size are your gas bottles)? Do you have convectors (how many and where are they located) or under floor heating? Do you have the Alde 'Flow' unit to enable continuous hot water flow, for use when showering for example? Stay safe and keep posting the videos. Best wishes from the UK :)

Hi! Thanks for leaving a comment :) We are also planning a trip through the UK and mainland Europe in the future!!! We have 2 20lb propane tanks (about 4.6 gallons each). With daytime temps in the 40s and night time in the 20s, we get about 2-3 days on propane. In the warmer weather, we get 5-20 days. That includes cooking, hot water and heat. We don’t have the Alde Flow since we never have needed it. However, it would be great when we are at campgrounds with unlimited water :) We have many convectors along the walls, one in the shower/bathroom, under the floor and surrounding the bed area. There are 8-10 convectors around the camper.

We have a Draw-Tite 65063 Front Mount Receiver Hitch. It mounts in a hidden fashion and has been great. It was a little challenging to install on our truck due to limited space to put my hands. The front carrier is just an old steel rack i found on craigslist years ago. We mostly use it for wood and misc stuff. I never did cover it in a video, but I could probably go over it quickly someday. I'll add it to my list of videos to make! Thanks for watching and leaving a great comment!

Another great vid! I am slowly getting convinced that the NuCamp is what I would like. Love, love, love that stargazer window. I'm not sure any other campers have it. If you don't mind my asking - what is your truck payload capacity, and what is the general weight of your camper when loaded? It's a question that bugs me a lot, as I do want to get the right truck and camper matched. And those shots of the scenery are precisely why I want to get out into the wild!

@Stonyboot Thanks a bunch for the reply, and sorry for taking so long to respond. We've been going through quite a weather trip here in Houston of late as you might have heard. Yes, this is a topic that needs it's own website I think, and you're right, TCM is a great place for such knowledge. I have recently signed on and am trying to catch up on truck camper news and happenings. It seems like y'all made a great choice with the dually! You would need it for that camper alright. I know I won't be carrying heavy toys (no bike plans yet, and definitely no ski/boat equipment, and nothing towed). Besides, I'm not one who tends to overpack. For these reasons, I have been considering a RAM 2500 (4010 lb. payload 6.4L HEMI V8) and favoring the NuCamp 720 and maybe even the 820 models. The heavier 2021 Cirrus 820 weighs 3253 lbs (wet, with batteries included). This looks like a pretty good combo to me. I don't plan to live in it full time (let me add, 'yet'!) The dually of course, has that solid structure appeal, and I'm sure that's why you guys like it. (Any other reasons why you like your dually?) I hadn't even considered the additional weight of the crew cab, always thinking that it would be a storage area when only 2 travelled, but you're right, I might not need it. There's so much to consider, and once again I am thankful for folks like you who make this info readily available. Keep those vids coming! Happy trails!

Great questions. Our GVWR is 14,000 lbs and we are at 13900-14100 depending on how much water we carry. We can go lighter if we need to. As Truck Camper Magazine outlines in their excellent articles, you do want to match your truck/camper properly. Our truck has a payload capacity of about 5,000 lbs, (5,250 I think). We use all of that. Keep in mind, we have the bikes, bike rack, and lots of equipment. We have our whole life in here. The Cirrus campers are a little heavier than some of the similar campers. Much of that weight (I think) comes from the wood cabinets and and overall building materials. We bought the biggest, heaviest payload truck we could so we wouldn't have a payload issue in the future. We also love having a dually! If we had time, we could have ordered a dually truck with a gas engine and that would have afforded us some additional payload capacity. Same with having a Crew Cab truck, that adds a lot of weight. Always check the GVWR listed on the truck. Let me know if you have other questions, its a big topic and hard to fully explain in a comment. TCM has great resources on their site for matching trucks/campers.

1 ton minimum. For the 920, I’d suggest a modern dually, and at least a 3500 or 350 for the 820. The camper alone is ok, but once you add yourself, stuff, water, and other travel items, the weight adds up quickly!

Same experience here. Less space, but way more adventurous than a trailer. Yellowstone is high on our list, hopefully this year!

@Stonyboot we like it much better. We have been in places we couldn't go with our trailer. We are going to Yellowstone in August for two weeks.

It’s nice to hear that you like it. They are awesome little homes on wheels. Do you enjoy the ease of getting around compared to having a long trailer?

You mentioned the camper height of 11 ft 6 inches. Is that the height while loaded on the truck? Would the loaded camper go in a 12 ft door? Thanks!

Yes! That is our total height (to the top of our air conditioner) And yes, we can fit in a 12 ft door with no problem :)

The cirrus brand is definitely will be our next truck camper. We have a Palomino now and its adequate and functional but isn't finished the way the NuCamps are.

I plan on doing a full review of the camper when we get to the 2 year mark. I hope it holds up as well as my research indicated, but only time will tell! I do like some of the Palominos, it's a shame about the warranty.

@Stonyboot -A Palomino wouldn't hold up for full time camping the way some other brands are deigned to do. I says in the warranty agreement that full time camping voids the coverage. I've also had to be a bit of a handyman over the couple of years we have owned it fixing things. A Lagun table was also a neccessary upgrade to replace the rickety table that came with it.

Palominos are nice! We didn't have anyone selling them where we used to live, so we couldn't look at them. And yeah, the esthetics piece was important to us when we were choosing Cirrus. We wanted to make sure we liked our new home!

Does the Alde function like an on-demand water heater or is there a tank with it? Just curious how long of a shower you're able to get with hot water. Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in responding. When the Alde is on, its always producing hot water, however, it won’t provide unlimited hot water unless you add the Alde Flow (which we don’t have). We tend to take a Navy shower which means we turn the water on and off, so hot water is never an issue for us. When we try to take a normal shower and leave the water running, we get 5-15 minutes of hot water depending on flow rate. Even when we have unlimited water, we tend to be conservative out of habit.

Our goal has always been to go off the beaten path, and we sacrificed space choosing a truck camper. And we just got used to using less water, so it's not that big of a deal to us anymore :)

Is a 3/4 ton 4×4 heavy duty enough for this camper

It would depends on your payload capacity. It might work, but chances are, you will be over weight if you pack much in there. If you are just doing weekend camping from a home base, you'll probably be fine. Check your weight ratings, and then check them again!

We don’t have personal experience, but we have been in them. I would say it’s fine for a single person. But they don’t have a shower and have a somewhat limited toilet. I would always suggest taking a look at the camper and spending some time in it before you consider buying it.

How much solar can you put on and how many batteries do you have room for?

I can get about 600 watts on the roof, maybe 700-800 with newer flexible panels. As for the batteries, I have them under the dinette in the factory location. However, I’ve made lots of changes. Right now I have 2 lithium batteries with a total of 600 AH of capacity. I also have an upgrade coming soon.

I love the Cirrus style but that’s way beyond our budget. With the truck and camper you probably have $120k invested. Just a guess but I think I’m close. Nobody ever talks about the money part. Safe travels!

You hit the nail on the head. I tried REALLY hard to get everything used, I almost flew to Washington state to get a used package deal, but it never happened. I'm thinking we could make a video in the future that covers how we ended up with what we have and the decision making process that lead us there.

Год назад
Stonyboot +4
Stonyboot

We spent about $105k on the truck and camper. We did buy new (which I never do), but we hunted around until we found the perfect camper configuration, so we didn't have to order it. It was the last one on the lot and was a left over from the previous season which gave us bargaining power. Same with the truck, last year, last on the lot, end of the month, end of the quarter. It was the best new deal we could put together in the 6 months of searching. We sold our house, cars, and everything else and traded that old life for a new life. This is our new home and its not a travel toy. We also installed an inverter, batteries, generator, and lots of other custom work in the dinette and truck. It's a labor of love, not really the absolute safest way to spend money. These things depreciate quickly, have high maintenance costs and other headaches that come with the deal. However, we get to go where we want, see new things everyday and meet people that we would never have encountered before. The last 1.5 years have been the most transformative and amazing time of our lives, together and as individuals. Worth every penny. We were fortunate to have the funds to pull it off, but there are far cheaper ways to get setup with a similar rig. Maybe that would be a good video to make, talk about the costs and some of the financial stuff we didn't expect. Would that be of interest to you?

I agree but you also have to consider this is their home so no mortgage other than what you pay for the camper. My wife and I are considering going this route, looking at used 1 ton diesel pickups can easily save 20k and they’ll drive 500k miles no problem.

It’s 4 season and I’ve talked to many people that use it below 0 while skiing. Personally, we have camped many nights in the single digits, we stay warm, but tend to have condensation in the morning. We prefer warmer weather, but have been through it all. We absolutely love the Alde system!

While Cirrus is an interesting brand, bear in mind that this appears to be a paid infomercial, so the usual cautions apply.   Also, be very cautious with the Alde heating system. I've had systems of similar design on several boats, and they always work fine until they don't... and they don't when you really need them. Of every piece of gear I've had on several boats and several RV's, this "hydronic heating" class of appliance (from several different manufacturers) was always by far the least reliable and the hardest to fix once they got some time on them. It might be a bit better with propane fuel than diesel (cleaner fuel), but once you are off-warranty and/or away from mechanics who really understand them and have the right spare parts in stock, the repairs get slow and expensive. Maddening waiting and waiting when you just want to travel and camp. A conventional RV heating system, while less comfortable and more energy intensive and louder, will be far more reliable when you really need it. Lastly, there is no magic to generating BTU's. If you want a lot of warmth, it will take a lot of propane. If you are camping in cold weather, you'll still be lugging a lot of tanks around. Hopefully you are plugged in and can use the electric option. Also note the heating capacity is going to be lower on electric than on propane.

Год назад

This is not a paid infomercial, if you know someone that wants to pay us, please let me know! Hydronic systems are certainly more complex and not nearly as common as traditional systems. But, they offer a set of features and comfort that you can't get with other types of systems. Like everything, it's a tradeoff. I have had several other campers with various forms of heat (I put a pellet stove in my 5th wheel, which was nice and cozy) We still love our Alde for the for all the reasons we laid out. It's still just our opinion.

You drive a 1 ton, that's great, but I drive a heavy half ton, and if they would have kept the 670 I would have spent the money, but since they went another direction with the 620,they lost me, so will look for a company that cares about the market so many miss..
