Our ONLY SoCal Chalet dealer hasn't got one in yet! And the 2 in Northern California don't either, and the Chalet guys in AZ didn't even know there was a Chalet Triple Slide Camper! The only Chalet dealer that actually may have one is in Tualatin, OR. And he shows whats "coming in soon!" And one was briefly on CraigsList in Portland but sold in HOURS! $48,000 to $53,000.

Has anyone actually seen or been inside of one of these Chalet Triple-Slide TS 116 Truck Campers in person? When I get my 2011 F450 Diesel dually I may want to set it up so I can add a TC on occasion for REMOTE camping like we used to do with our Pop-up trailer many years ago.

The interior is actually 8' wide, 11' 6" length floor, and 6'6 ceiling and basement storage just like an TT! And the floor of the camper is level with the siderails of the truck bed, and the whole thing weighs 3700 lbs dry. R-20 roof and R-11 wall insulation! A larger sized Lance starts around 3600 lbs dry...before options. And all 3 of the powered slideouts have the brand new Lippert "Total Control 1 system". Lippert new slide system...no cables.

In addition to keeping the fiver for semi-fulltiming and longer trips!

I like the fact that it is as roomy as some Class C's, very light weight, all the amenities and just HUGE! I'm excited and anticipating seeing one soon. So excuse my gushing!

And yes I have contacted the Chalet RV Company for more info and a brochure. I'm was beginning to think that Chalet only built the one that's making the RV Show rounds!

Truck Camper Warehouse in West Chesterfield NH had one in stock a few weeks ago, "AWESOME CAMPER"...... They are open weekends for now as far as I know, might be worth calling first,

From what others have noted here, the F350 payload is based on the maximum of any option sets....which might be gas engine, regular cab whereas the F450 only comes with the diesel and crewcab. A similarly optioned F350 would likely have less than the F450. Of course, to get a real truck you'd want the cab/chassis 450 or 550.

I'd really like to see the new chalet as well. I'm still not sure I could go for the mid-bath like all the triple slide models have, but having the extra space and the rear couch would be awfully nice.

Count me fortunate, but I've been in two Chalet triples and the new Eagle Cap 1165 triple prototype. Both are very roomy inside, not unlike a small condo! The EC is a full 102" in width. The slide mechanisms are fantastic! Close up, both very worthy contenders.

PM me if you like.

FWIW - There has been a Chalet Triple slide for sale here in the Portland Craigslist for the last month or so.

Saw it at the show in Springfield, MA. I'd buy one if I had the cash, NO question! LOVED it.

Got passed by a Chalet TS yesterday around the 95S/128 junction. It was being hauled on a Chevy dually by some nut bobbing and weaving about 70 mph thru Boston traffic. I tend to drive pretty conservatively when I am loaded up…this Guy was moving! I did get a pretty good look at the back of this thing…it is huge!

Perhaps it was being moved (delivered) from NH to NY?

Who is the lucky buyer?

We've been in the Chalet triple slide both at the Springfield RV show and up at Truck Camper Warehouse. Bill told us he's sold two already and had a third one ready to go. It is a beautifully appointed TC but too big for what we want to do - real back roads, etc. He'll probably get in the new Chalet double slide when it gets manufactured also. We really liked the slide mechanics on the Chalet.

If you can't find a Chalet, Eagle Cap now makes a triple slide....
