nuCamp RV Debuts Their New Lightweight Cirrus 620 Camper
nuCamp’s latest model, the Cirrus 620 truck camper, provides all the comforts of RVing into a lightweight unit that is designed for half-ton trucks. The Cirrus 620 is the lightest out of the Ohio manufacturer’s camper lineup, weighing in at a little less than 1500 pounds.
Other campers in the lineup include the Cirrus 720, made for 3/4-ton trucks; the Cirrus 820, built for short-bed one-ton trucks; and the Cirrus 920, a long-bed truck camper built for one-ton trucks.
“Our primary goal was to create a high-quality unit loaded with style and amenities—all while weighing under 1,500 pounds,” explained nüCamp CEO Scott Hubble. “Consumers no longer need to make the choice between a minimally equipped lightweight camper or one full of amenities that exceeds their half-ton truck’s limitations.”
Half-ton trucks like the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500 are rated to carry loads as heavy as the Cirrus 620 Camper. Plus, the lightweight camper can fit in pickup beds as short as 5 feet 5 inches, provided the tailgate is down. (Regarding weight capacity, keep in mind that the camper’s dry weight does not include additional camping gear, water storage, food items, and bedding loaded on.)
Other general specifications include:
- 1491 lbs dry weight
- 12 feet 8 inches long
- 8 feet 2 inches maximum external height and width
- 6 feet 4 inches interior height
- 18 gallon fresh water tank capacity
- 12 gallon gray water tank capacity
- 5 gallon capacity for cassette toilet (no black tank)
- Sleeps up to 3 people
- Four season camper
nuCamp’s Cirrus 620 is rated for four-season camping. It is constructed with an aluminum-framed roof, walls, and floors, all reinforced with lightweight, well-insulated, all-around durable Azdel composite panels. Two sets of windows flank either side of the camper and one sits atop the cabover, all insulated and including built-in window shades and screens.
The camper also comes standard with:
- All-in-one Alde hydronic water heater and furnace
- One 5-gallon propane tank
- A 210-watt solar power system
- A vented battery compartment large enough to hold two group-24 batteries
Additional options include:
- A small air conditioner
- A motorized awning
With such a small living space outfitted with so many amenities, it’s hard to believe that any camper wouldn’t feel claustrophobic. However, nüCamp’s interior design opens up space with five windows, LED lighting, an over 6-foot ceiling, and neutral colors. There are also many storage compartments. A kitchenette, bedroom area, and toilet are all housed in the Cirrus 620.
The kitchenette is located in the rear portion of the camper. The galley includes a 2.3 cubic foot DC compressor refrigerator, a dual-burner stove, stainless steel sink, shelves, overhead cabinets, slide-out storage pantry, and a space for an optional microwave. A dinette sits between the bedroom area and galley. It can be converted into a single bed (30X 78 inches).
A queen-size bed sits in the front/cabover portion of the camper. The north-south queen size bed measures 60 X 76 inches and includes the versatile Froli Sleep System.
This mattress platform is designed to not only aid in recuperative sleep, but it sits high enough to allow air to flow under the mattress, eliminating condensation and mildew.
Although there is no wet bath, there is a hideaway 19-L Thetford swivel cassette hidden under a bench. Campers can also access a shower outside using the unit’s Nautilus Water Management System.
