The RV Guy is here in the video below to give us a tour of the 2023 HOST Mammoth truck camper.
As truck campers go, the HOST Mammoth truck camper truly is MAMMOTH. You are going to need a seriously heavy-duty truck to haul this one.
Not that it won’t be worth it. The Mammoth truck camper has features not often (never?) seen in these types of RVs. Not the least of which are an onboard washer and dryer and a fireplace!
So what else sets the 2023 HOST Mammoth truck camper apart?

- Three-burner stove

I have never seen a truck camper like this one. WOW. You really have to watch the video to see what is possible in this genre!
We full time in a 2022 Host Yukon, same size as the Mammoth just a different floor plan. We chose not to have the washer/dryer in ours due to the use of power, water and tank space. We exclusively boondock, going to parks to use their dump station. With the Extreme Off-grid solar package we comfortably can stay out for 2 weeks. Laundromat visits once a month. We love our Yukon, but we certainly kept away from the laundry option.
A combination washer dryer is not a good option for washing clothes. As it takes a really long time to do one load before you can do a second one. Which means you’ll be washing clothes for most of the day. I rather just go to a laundry mat, and be through in an hour or two. Plus, unless you’re hooked up to water, you’ll use up a lot from your fresh water tank.
Would have been good to have some dimension and weight info and what kind of truck it takes to haul it. An MSRP as well. Nice truck camper design.
Growing up our vacations were in a pickup camper with a bucket for a toilet in a small closet, a fridge the size of a large shoe box. Hand pump for water in a sink smaller than a shoe box that drained onto the ground. No AC. A small built in propane radiant heater.
Oh the fun we had, though!
It weights 3950 dry, and takes a dually to carry it.
This monster looks like it actually has three slides. Looks like it on their website as well. So, is an F-550 flatbed needed for this like that other “truck camper” we saw recently? A washing machine in a truck camper? I remember lusting after a Six Pack brand truck camper back in the early 80’s with almost NO amenities other than a hand pump water system and an ice box. Had I bought one of those, I would have thought I’d died and gone to heaven – HA.
No, it just takes a 350 dually.
Way to demo a filthy unit, wash before you film
