From Rails to Trails

When I received the call from my publisher telling me to prepare for an incoming Lance trailer, I thought there was a mistake. A Lance camper, certainly, but a trailer? For more than 40 years, Lancaster, California-based Lance has manufactured its popular line of slide-in campers. Innovative styling, top-quality construction and spacious floorplans have always been mainstays from Lance, but we haven’t seen a new Lance that features wheels and an A-frame for years. Until now.

The Lance 1880 trailer weighs in at a svelte 3,800 pounds wet, which makes it towable by a wide range of pickups and SUVs, including Honda’s redesigned Pilot 4WD Touring Edition SUV.

After the once-unlikely combo was hitched up and ready to go, we set off to put the vehicles through the paces.

On the road, the Lance tracked like a dream. Lane changes, quick stops and low-speed campsite maneuvering were all non-eventful, which is a testament to the Lance and the Pilot. We did receive some curious glances from RVers who, at the last minute, realized they were passing a Lance trailer. We even got a thumbs up from a man with a Lance camper lashed to his pickup.
