Scout campers are built by Adventurer Manufacturing, in a newly-expanded production facility located in Yakima, WA. Adventurer’s quality has been celebrated throughout the US and Canada for over 50 years.
Factory visits are currently on hold due to COVID-19. We will re-open to the public when local health regulations allow us to do so. If you'd like to be added to the tour waiting list, please send us your info using our online contact form
Scout is the perfect balance of strength and portability. Intelligent engineering combined reinforced aluminum framing, and rock solid composite hardwalls, and that lead to a newer, smarter way to adventure. High-density, polyurethane foam (fortified with fiberglass) gives you 4-season insulation without wiping out your payload. Wood-free composite construction means you enjoy superior, rot-resistant travels year-round
No wood = no rot. Scouts are built to last for generations.
The interior heights:-Yoho: 75” -Olympic: 78” -Kenai: 80″ Exterior heights (w/o roof top tent, and not including camper jacks): -Yoho: 78″ -Olympic: 81″ -Kenai: 83″
To put it simply: we upped the game on portability, customization, and environmental harmony. Scout comes with amenities that can be taken out and enjoyed independently, and even taken out on other adventures without the truck camper itself. Scout campers are not like traditional RVs which have complicated, overly-integrated systems. Instead, Scout encourages all to travel more freely and self-sufficiently. There are plenty of options for customization which allows users the opportunity to create their dream adventure vehicle from the start. Since most of the amenities are portable and optional, users can choose which options they need and which they don’t. Scout only offers the best: a collection of high-quality, reputable camping gear and equipment that will elevate the user’s camping experience
The roof top tent can be accessed from inside the camper through an interior hatch located adjacent to the sleeping area. It also comes with a lock-in-place, telescoping ladder for exterior access.
The roof top tent simple to set up, and generally takes just a few minutes to complete. All you have to do is release the exterior latches, and the internal hydraulics take care of the rest. All that’s left after that is to make your bed and enjoy the views. Any extra equipment you need for assembling the rainfly comes included with your unit and we recommend opening the roof top tent periodically to keep the hydraulics from stiffening when not in use.
Yoho was designed with lighter-duty, V6 trucks in mind, which means that Yoho’s weight needs to remain within a certain range to stay safe. The roof top tent is available on our larger models, Olympic and Kenai, and gives you space to sleep up to 3 individuals.
The Scout Yoho main sleeper is a full-sized mattress that measures 54” x 72”. The convertible lounge transitions into 2 small beds that measure 23.5” x 66.75” and 18.5” x 65” respectively.
The Scout Olympic main sleeper is a full XL sized mattress that measures 54″ x 80″. The convertible dinette collapses down into a twin sized sleeping space that measures 34″ x 70″. The bed dimensions in the optional roof top tent measures 54.5” x 88”.
The Scout Kenai main sleeper is and extendable, queen-sized mattress that measures 60″ x 80″. Much like in our Yoho model, the convertible lounge transitions into 2 small beds that measure 22.25″ x 63.5″ and 18.5″ 67.25″. The bed dimensions in the optional roof top tent measure 54.5” x 88”.
The Scout Olympic and Kenai can comfortably sleep 4-6 individuals. The optional roof-top tent increases sleeping capacity by 2 adults (or 3 children). The Scout Yoho can comfortably sleep up to 4 individuals.
Given their minimalist nature, a “standard bathroom” is something we’ve had to re-invent. We’ve put a lot of effort into finding seamless, ecofriendly ways to keep you and your family clean, while stepping past the days of heavy tanks and reservoirs. Each model has the convenient option of a portable 2.6 gal toilet – perfectly sized to stow away into our galley storage cubbies.
The Kenai model offers the most integrated bathroom options, like a pressurized heated rinse station (for use inside or out), as well as the option of either an installed cassette toilet, or the portable 2.6 gal toilet mentioned above.
In all three of our units, our standard portable water storage and pressurized wand helps you rinse off; inside at the sink, or outside as a shower. Kenai’s unique drainpan entrance and privacy curtain give you the flexibility of a hot rinse inside, away from the elements, and makes it easy to dry your gear after a day of play.
Our product development team is continuing to review air conditioning options that will fit into the design and purpose of our product. If this is something important to you, please connect to a brand rep to explore options together. While we don’t currently offer AC, we can still keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Each unit comes standard with solar intake/exhaust ventilation in the galley, and the double pane windows on both sides of the camper can be opened to create a cross-breeze. Additionally, the skylight/roof top tent opening near the bunk provides further access to fresh air, and views of the night sky. We’ve also included solar reflector shades on our windows, and the 270-degree awning provides great sunshade if you’re camping in the open.
Every Scout offers the awardwinningly portable and powerful Dometic CFX3 fridge/freezer as an option
The 45L, exclusive to Yoho, can refrigerate or deepfreeze down to –22 °C with minimal energy consumption even in hot environments. Monitor the 45L’s energy, temperature and performance from your phone, and enjoy luxurious integrations like LED interior lights, a USB charging port for personal devices, and compatibility with Yoho’s 1000x portable power station
The 75L, available for Olympic and Kenai, shares the same cooling performance, convenience controls, and energy efficiency as the 45L. The 75L boasts more room for provisions, as well as the flexibility of concurrent fridge and freezer compartments.
Whether the 45L is your Yoho musthave, or if you can’t imagine life in Olympic or Kenai without the 75L, you’re guaranteed the ultimate convenience of cooling made portable. Keep it in your unit or take it on other adventures even without the camper.
Our removable camper jacks weigh only 114lbs and provide just as many advantages when attached, as they do when they’re off. Taking them off lowers your travel weight when driving, and gives your rig more maneuverability in tight spaces – two things that are hard to find with permanent motorized jacks. When attached these jacks allow you to safely store your unit, and also give you the flexibility of using your camper apart from your truck when properly supported without having to stress about a complicated loading/reloading experience
The removable jacks are mounted to 4 steel brackets located on the underside of the horizontals. The jacks extend outwards at a 45 degrees from each of the four corners for added stability in loading and storage. Each jack has an “arm” that slides in and out of the jack bracket, which can be pinned in place during loading and unloading according to your bed width. The jacks are manually operated and come with a manual handle and drill adapter so that a standard drill can be used to raise or lower the jacks. The jack brackets also incorporate the attachment of the tiedown ratchet straps, which are used to tie the camper to the truck beds
We loved Dometic’s powdercoated aluminum cooktop base so much, we partnered with them to create something 100% exclusive to Scout. Its precise gas metering and splatter guards make it one of our most asked about options to date. Our custom cooktop option has a quick disconnect gas line which makes the transition from indoor to outdoor cooking close to effortless. Whether you choose our cook top, or bring your own, every Scout comes standard with galley gas hookups. (But, if you choose ours, you’ll make meal prep a snap, and enjoy shiftfree travel with the Scout cooktop security strap.)
Speaking of gas hookups, though: Olympic’s optional slideout prep station gives you additional, exterior gas hookups as well as a functional tabletop for cooking outdoors and additional storage for stowing items while on the road
