We're looking for a camper that has cab-over sleeping, and a full enclosed bath. AND, a truck to haul it. We have NO experience with either trucks or campers but would prefer the versatility of being able to separate the two for various uses. Thus, we've abandoned the idea of a class B or C RV. Any recommendations on trucks and/or campers welcomed!

Depending on the camper you might be able to remove it from the truck, lower it, and use it at a campground. There is a guy doing just that with his camper. Make sure you have enough truck to handle whatever camper you decide on.

I have owned a truck camper for about 18 years, with 15 of them being one Northern Lite.
As Gronk stated it is important to match the Truck to the camper.
Any well equipped camper is going to be heavy.

However I will also warn against trying to dismount the camper in remote situations.
The site you choose should be stable, level and somewhat hard surface.
Campgrounds can also demand it stay on the truck.
They won't have the ability to remove it if something happens, it isn't a trailer and demands a lot more effort.
