Runaway Campers RangeRunner is an affordable mini-camper

In the video below, Ben and Tiffany from the Runaway and Seemor3 YouTube channel are going to take us on a tour of their Runaway Campers RangeRunner mini-camper.

Billed as “America’s most affordable mini-campers,” Runaway Campers offers its customers lots of customization options. Naturally, pricing will depend on the options you select.

With a 6×8 cabin, Runaway Campers RangeRunner offers enough space to create several different sleeping arrangements. The interior is wide enough to accept a queen-size, a combination of full/twin or twin/twin mattress(es), or even your own bedding/seating ideas.

Tiffany and Ben originally started with a king-size bed configuration, then switched to a queen-sized one, but found their current L-shaped beds are far more functional (albeit less romantic—my editorial comment, not theirs).

The 2021 model in the video features a one-piece roof, something that Runaway Campers upgraded to around that time.

Ben’s front storage box modification adds room for lots more gear, so be sure to check it out. A small window air conditioner keeps things cool.

They also have an easy-to-assemble awning that can turn into a screened room for extra living space. Brilliant!

Inside is equally innovative and surprisingly roomy. Tiffany explains how all the camper’s interior components connect together. That way nothing moves while traveling.

A wall of storage baskets holds all the couple’s camping needs neatly in place. More storage is hidden under the L-shaped bed configuration. There’s even space for a portable toilet.

For anyone thinking of ordering a Runaway Camper, Ben and Tiffany offer some good tips on how to build it in order to take advantage of off-the-shelf storage solutions and bins.

To be sure, this is a step above tent camping. There’s no shower and no kitchen to speak of. But it sure beats a tent!

Since no one got in and sat on the bed(s), it’s hard to tell if you can actually sit up inside. It’s a cute little step up from tent camping, and Bob’s comments about tent camping bring back memories. However, the amenities are a bit sparse for me. Wifey reminds me (and I agree with her on this one) that we are never going backward in our camping lifestyle.

Definitely a giant step above tent camping, and you never have to break camp to find that marble sized stone you missed setting up your tent, nor do you get wet in a torrential downpour as the water manages to find one little opening you missed. Definitely not for older people though. Lol

Well, maybe for some old people. The couple in the video are hardly spring chickens.
