Old Town's camper is a very good all-around canoe for flat water and an occasional class 1 & 2 river. I bought my Camper 9 years ago as my first canoe, and have really enjoyed the durability of the Royalex material and the relatively light 59 pounds for a 16' plastic canoe. The flat bottom provides excellent initial stability, but the trade-off is only fair tracking. It doesn't handle boat wakes and larger waves as well as a rounded-bottom boat, either. As an alternative, prospective buyers should consider Old Town's Penobscot 16, which is similar many aspects but with a shallow arch bottom that provides better tracking and handling in waves, at the price of slightly less initial stability. My Camper has been trouble-free with many hours on rivers and lakes, except for replacing a cane seat a few years ago. Excellent quality construction.
