One of the cheapest ways to travel and camp with your Ford Ranger is with a camper shell. Camper shells have been referred to as a ‘truck cap’, ‘camper shell’, and ‘canopy’, but for this article, we’ll just call it a camper shell.

Camper shells can be found in various styles such as the one shown above that’s level with the cab, and more of a high rise style like the one below.

Some owners add carpet kits with sleeping platforms…..

And some owners just add ‘Bed Rugs’ so they have a smooth carpeted area to sit and sleep on.

Of course, to really maximize the use of your truck bed and camper shell, you should consider a sleeping platform:
