Designed for Adventure
Scout campers were created to allow outdoor enthusiasts to break free from the limitations of conventional RVs and get way out there to remote destinations. Designed for “adventurous families, minimalist travelers, and weekend warriors,” the flagship Olympic truck camper certainly facilitates a quick getaway to the mountains. With its compact design and sensible, modular systems, which are all easily relocated outside of the camper, the Scout is designed for people who like to spend most of their time outdoors.
When the day is done, prep a meal for your crew on the slide-out storage which doubles as a work surface (and have your fridge outside too so perishable ingredients stay fresh and close at hand). Of course, you can also cook inside the camper if the weather doesn’t agree. When you’re ready to sleep, the pop-top hinges open, creating space for two adults (+one kid), while the main cabin of the Olympic has room for three more (two on the dedicated bed and one in the convertible dinette).
Modular Systems for Every Occasion
Perhaps the most unique aspect of the Olympic is its modular systems like the Dometic range, Goal Zero Yeti, or Lifesaver water storage/filter, all of which have been integrated for easy removal so you can take them on other adventures where you don’t need the camper. I’ll admit, I’m a little skeptical as to how many people will actually take advantage of this design element, but in concept, I think it’s a great idea.
I think there is a lot of value in keeping things simple. A gravity-fed water system means no burnt-out pump in the backcountry. And the removable Goal Zero power system and Dometic fridge can easily be removed, upgraded, or repaired without digging into the guts of the camper. The compact cabin is optimized for sleeping, encouraging you to get outside to enjoy the great outdoors (because is sitting inside a camper all day even really living?).
The Value is in the Versatility
With a price tag of just under $20K, this camper isn’t inexpensive, but the value comes from its versatility. It’s lightweight, compact, and sleeps a lot of people giving its diminutive size. The removable systems beg to be taken out of the camper and put to use tailgating or at the lake. The one thing I’m left wanting is a bit more water storage, as the stated 4.9-gallon capacity seems inadequate for anything but the shortest outings. However, there is an add-on option for two Robo Pax 2-gallon water storage containers.
