2017 Lance 2612 Review

Toy hauler is big on cargo and people space

The Lance 2612 toy hauler has all the space and features you need to take a full crew on amazing outdoor adventures.

It has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 9,950 lbs, dry weight of 7,050 lbs and cargo carrying capacity of 2,900 lbs. The fresh water tank has an incredible 100-gallon capacity and the grey tank and black tank can each hold 45 gallons. The 2612 exterior is 31’11” long and 102” wide.

There’s a boast-worthy amount of cargo space – a full 12’2”  - to fit your outdoor toys. Even with all that cargo space, there’s still more than enough room to haul your friends and family too, with a sleeping capacity of seven to eight people.

Curbside and rear flood lighting make night time outings a little easier, as does the pump station, which holds a 40-gallon fuel tank.  As well, the Lance 2612 comes with a central utility hook-up compartment with wash station and exterior propane connection.

Two electric awnings with LED lights come standard – a nice 20-foot long one on the side and a smaller seven-foot awning at the rear.  A folding sidewall-mounted ladder brings you up to the full walk-on roof, and a 7’ 2” inch ramp door with textured coin floor leads up to the cargo area.

Inside, the floor measures 26'6" long and there’s a full 96” of height. A removable carpet kit allows you to turn the cargo and galley area floor into a homier living space, while roof vents in the bed, living, and cargo areas help with airflow.

The kitchen area has everything you need for meal prep and more: an eight-cubic-foot refrigerator, double sink with pull-down spray faucet head, stainless steel three-burner range with oven, plus a range hood with a light and fan. A large 30” stainless steel microwave oven comes standard to reheat last night's leftovers. Custom hardwood cabinet doors, decorative backsplash and spice rack add a more residential feel to the space. LED ceiling and mood lighting also help to make the space cozy. For entertainment, you'll find an AM/FM/DVD stereo with interior and exterior Bluetooth speakers.

Pick from two different interior décor options: the vibrant red tones of ‘Nitrous’ or the more staid neutrals of ‘After Burner.’ The living area has two large windows and plenty of seating room: two comfy swivel chairs and with a jack-knife sofa which folds down into a bed that can sleep one adult or two children. At the back of the Lance 2612, there’s a loft bed that lowers down which is accessible for the little ones with a ladder.  One of the sofas at the back folds down into a Queen bed. So far, that adds up to five or six sleeping spaces.

In the bathroom, you’ll find a medicine cabinet with hardwood front and a mirrored door, a skylight in the shower, and a porcelain toilet with foot flush.

Move to the bedroom at the front of the hauler and you'll find a Queen-size spring mattress – two more sleeping spaces – large overhead storage cabinet, nightstand and reading lights.

The Lance 2612 comes standard with A/C. Options include electric stabilizer jacks, keyless entry, central vacuum, automatic tracking satellite dish, solar panel, roof rack and ramp door patio railing system.

The Lance 2612 starts at about $54,000. For more information, visit http://www.lancecamper.com/.
