2015 Lance 1172 Truck Camper
2015 Lance 1172 Truck Camper
Only the best manufacturing techniques are utilized by Lance, in both their
Truck Camper and Travel Trailers lines. One such technique that isn't used
by any other RV mfg is using a CNC Router to cut to a near zero tolerance
level. This translates into no gapping, no "gimp" and no distressed
Every Lance Camper & Travel Trailer have their extruded polystyrene
insulation cut with a CNC router and matched to a Lewing Board. This isn't
done at other manufacturers. Lance also utilizes a wood from a renewable
European source (in Spain) for their LitePly wood cabinets, etc. LitePly
is commonly used in corporate jets.
The other Lance advantage besides the CNC router and superior materials, is
the use of Azdel. Azdel is a composite material that is used, in lieu of
the standard Luaun (Luan) wall boards. What Azdel does is to not allow
water, mold, mildew form inside the walls of the pinch rolled (with thicker
German Lamilux fiberglass) Luaun will eventually absorb water and rot,
mold, mildew. NOT with Azdel. Plus Azdel is 50% stronger than Luaun and
also has a R-7 value in insulation. Composites are here to stay. It's the
21st century and Lance refuses to use wood and house insulation for their
Trailers and Truck Campers, a "technology" that was popular in the 1970's
and 1980's, and still - today! Amazing that people will settle for less!
Lance isn't "glued and screwed" as other Travel Trailer/Truck Campers
Manufacturers use. Lance also offers a 4 Season certified package, to keep
you warm with dual stage furnace, dual pane windows, covered hatches,
winter bypass, etc. This is the only choice for a lightweight 4 Seasons
Certified Truck Camper & Travel Trailer in the market today!
Lance, located in Lancaster, CA is a California "Green Company" built under
the most stringent manufacturing guidelines. No "off gassing" present at
all as formaldehyde isn't used to make Lance Travel Trailers or Truck
Handsomely appointed with only the best appliances. HighPointe,
Atwood/Wedgewood,, Norcold, Coleman Mach, Moen, PEX among other brands.
Lance offers a full 2 year structural warranty, whereas many Travel Trailer
and Truck Camper manufacturers only offer a 1 year warranty. The
appliances carry their own individual warranties.
This is why Lance still enjoys a 40% market share of the entire Camper
Industry sales, every year and going strong!
