RV production is booming as record-breaking numbers of people continue to purchase campers and take to the road. While familiar floor plans with proven track records still dominate the market, manufacturers are adding innovative designs that offer options for new types of travelers looking to enter the RVing lifestyle.

The 2022 Rigs We Love

While big rigs continue to evolve with new innovations that make them suited for long-term travel, this year is proof that bigger isn’t necessarily better. Smaller rigs that pack a lot into a little space are hitting the scene in droves. Here are a few favorite new RV models and features heading into 2022.

Lance 960 Truck Camper

Lance historically dominates the relatively small truck camper space, and for good reason. With a bevy of floor plan options and a Green Certification by TRA Certification, Lance campers meet the needs of a wide variety of travelers. The company’s newest floor plan, the 960, draws upon its years of design experience and the design is based on input from owners themselves. For this rig, the manufacturer maximizes holding tank capabilities and still manages to make a non-slide floor plan feel surprisingly spacious.

SPECS:
UVW 2,970 pounds
Exterior Length 19 feet
Exterior Height 9 feet

Black Tank 28 gallons
Gray Tank 30 gallons
MSRP $44,460

While Lance boasts comfortable seating options as the main attraction, we’re equally blown away by the kitchen, which offers more counter space than many small travel trailers. There’s even room for an oven in this rig, making it a truly great option for those who like to cook all of their meals at the campground.
