Boise startup launches all-in-one camper that fits in a pickup bed

Two Boise brothers, Dan and Will Sunderland, have created a new product that has the amenities of an RV – but that can fit into the back of a pick-up truck.

Talus Expedition Gear’s manufacturing shop and headquarters is located in Boise. It makes kitchen and storage units that are custom fit for truck beds.

Talus – named for the foot bone both brothers broke in unrelated injuries – was founded last year.

“We wanted to take the limitations we felt with our injuries and turn it into a new opportunity,” Will said.

The CampPack and VenturePack drawer-based units come with a fully equipped kitchen, electricity, and storage. Propane tanks fuel a stove, a solar unit helps charge a battery pack for power outlets, a 16-gallon tank provides water for a sink, and the units even include a refrigerator. The products also include a track system for rooftop tents.

“We tried to think of everything the modern adventurer needs without limiting the off-road capability of your vehicle,” Dan said.

The cost of the camper units are about $12,000 and add-ons like drawers and a roof-top tent go for $1,000 to $6,000.

For perspective, RVs can cost between $10,000 and $300,000 depending on the style and features, according to campreport.com.

Talus is hosting a showing Wednesday at Camel’s Back Park between 5pm and 7pm. For more information, click here.
