People do all kinds of creative things with the exteriors of their camper trailers. From whimsical to rustic, these clever designs allow the camper’s owner to express themselves and their unique personalities. Many of these camper trailers are sided with real or faux log siding to give them the look of a cabin in the woods. TruLog™ steel log siding can be used on just about any type of structure.

Choosing Siding for Your Camper
Here are some factors you may want to consider as you choose a type of siding:
- Cost: Wood or log siding can be very expensive, while the faux alternatives are much more affordable. TruLog™ steel log siding is not only an affordable alternative to logs, it also saves you money over time because you won’t have to perform routine maintenance like you would for log siding.
- Durability: The exterior of your camper trailer will need to stand up to bad weather and moisture. TruLog™ steel log siding is made of heavy gauge steel. It is moisture-resistant and will resist damage from hail and high winds. Wood is much more likely to become damaged by water, especially if you don’t follow a strict maintenance routine to re-seal it.
- Energy efficiency: TruLog™ is installed with a foam backer. This backer provides insulation, which will help moderate the temperature in your camper. Wood and logs tend to be less effective in this regard.
TruLog™ steel log siding offers all of the aesthetic benefits of the log style, but without the maintenance of logs and wood siding.
How to Install Siding on Your Camper
Campers are quite different from houses. A square or rectangular camper will be the easiest shape to re-side. Once you’ve chosen your siding and have your materials ready to go, you’ll have to decide how best to proceed. TruLog™ steel log siding can be shipped in boxes directly to you, anywhere in the country.
Depending on your level of expertise, you may be able to install TruLog™ siding on your own, or with the help of friends. We send an instructional DVD with each purchase so that you can take a do-it-yourself approach if you wish. An experienced contractor is also a good option for installation. You may want to look for a contractor or another professional who has experience siding camper trailers. Whether you choose to do it yourself or hire a professional, our steel log siding is easy to install and lasts for decades without the need for upkeep.
