The Scout Kenai Camper Turns Your Truck Into a Home

Are you ready to go camping but need a little more comfort than a tent can offer? Well, if you already have a truck, you don’t need an RV. You can have one epic truck home with the Scout Kenai Camper. 

The Scout Kenai Camper for heavy-duty trucks 

While there are a variety of Scout Kenai Camper packages for lightweight and midsize trucks, Scout Campers has officially rolled out the Big Boy Kenai for heavy-duty trucks. It’s a luxury set up to transform your massive truck into a pretty epic camper.

This family-oriented camper can sleep four to six people and comes with the option of long or short beds. One of the most comfortable features includes a fold-out queen-sized bed that goes over the top of your truck cab. Also, it holds dry weight down to an estimated 1,370 pounds, making it easy to haul.

There is a Goal Zero 1500 power station, and there is a cubby that holds two 10-pound propane tanks, so you will have the power you need. Power is excellent, but what about the ability to use the bathroom?

The Big Boy Kenai has you covered. There is an optional cassette toilet that empties into a portable 4.75 holding tank or a Dometic 2.5-gallon portable unit. The expansion area also makes room for a designated bathroom area or mudroom. 

A 360-degree enclosure surrounds a steel drain pan that empties outside of the camper too. Pair it with the portable RinseKit shower kit to have a hot, pressurized shower. A curtain will connect to the enclosure to provide privacy as the water drains out of the camper. Also, the shower kit can fold up and fit on a shelf.
