Outfitter Manufacturing, Inc. continuously Innovates and embraces advancements in the RV Industry.
Industry's first Basement
Outfitter Apex models are the only pop-up truck campers in the industry to feature basements. Basement storage allows fresh water and holding tank capacity to increase by 70 percent and prevents tank contents from freezing -a common problem with most self-contained truck campers having externally mounted holding tanks. Storing the tanks in the basement lowers the camper's center of gravity making it less tipsy and safer to use. Basement storage also increases the overall height of the camper making the Outfitter Apex the only pop-up truck camper with a shower that allows you to stand fully up-right while inside.
Aluminum frame, vacuum-bonded composite walls
Vacuum-bonded composite walls set the highest standard for durability in the industry. The framing and vacuum-bonding processes require higher degrees of precision and attention to detail than traditional wood-framing processes. While most RV manufacturers are still framing campers with wood or even coosa that is only stapled together at the joints (with the better mfgs. laminating the outside surface to the frame vs. loose hung shells), every Outfitter begins as a double welded aluminum frame. Aluminum provides a rigid and durable base around which to build the unit while also making it lighter (compared to wood frames) so that a larger camper can be placed on a truck while still staying within the truck's weight capacity. Once the walls have been double welded, they are put into a vacuum press where each wall is bonded under 1080 lbs. of pressure per square inch creating a solid one-piece composite structure. And aluminum frames leave no room for water to collect and are not susceptible to rot which destroys many wood-framed campers -even the newest models - from the inside out.
Instead of the standard bead foam that most RV manufacturers use for insulation, Outfitter uses block foam in every truck camper it produces. Block foam provides structural strength that bead foam cannot and gives Outfitters nearly double the insulating factor of any other camper made today.
Outfitter not only uses the finest materials, like solid maple cabinet doors and drawers, to create a comfortable living environment, we also spend a great deal of time making sure that the interior will continue to look good for years to come. The durability of our truck campers include the use of a stain and cut resistant counter with an integrated sink that won't chip, rust, or corrode; and a single sheet of linoleum that not only covers the floor but all the way into cabinets and storage bins, eliminating seams that can leak, collect dirt, or peel up. Our porcelain toilet won't crack, stain, or collect odors and the shower is a one-piece formed fiberglass enclosure that won't leak, peal, or rot. And all of the surfaces are easily cleaned, including the ceiling which is finished in a light-weight fiberglass that can be washed with warm soapy water.
In comparison to free standing free molded composite exteriors, which is only a shell loose hung over a wood frame, LamiLux provides a perfectly flat surface area to laminate the camper frame to. Thus, providing more rigidity and support to the camper's walls. LamiLux, with its ten-year guarantee against UV fading, is the highest quality of fiberglass used in the industry. Most other fiberglass (ribbed or flat and especially free standing free molded compposite shell) begins to fade within one to two years.
True Composite Foam Core Roof
Outfitter uses a True Composite Foam Core Roof, transforming the roof into a one-piece membrane that virtually eliminates all possibilities for leaks. The fiberglass roof material is maintenance free and more puncture-resistant than the most commonly used rubber roof material (E.P.M.D.), and it will not scuff, chalk, or grow mold. Outfitter roofs are completely hail-proof. Flat RV roofs hold snow and rain which can eventually cause them to collapse. Outfitter roofs, however, are constructed in a crown shape that allows snow and rain to roll off rather than collect. Our Composite roof is called a "True Composite Foam Core Roof" because it is not a fiberglass shell glued to a wood frame like our competitors.
Our soft-walls are guaranteed to hold 65 degrees Fahrenheit inside the camper even while it is -20 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Our soft-walls are made from Weblon, a product that, unlike most others, will not mildew, rot, or crack from constant temperature changes or cold temperatures. Our soft-wall has a 12-year UV warranty. It is fully insulated and double-stitched to prevent leaking.
