Roasted Cauliflower with Herb-Caper Dressing

  • 3 scallions (coarsely chopped)

Cooking instructions:

  1. Place two of your oven racks in the lower and upper thirds of the oven.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and use parchment paper to line two baking sheets.
  3. Cut the cauliflower florets off of the heads. Cut them again into 1/2-inch pieces. Place the pieces in a large bowl.
  4. Add 1/3 cup olive oil to the florets and toss until coated.
  5. Spread the florets evenly along the baking sheets. Don’t let them overlap.

  7. Roast the cauliflower florets for about 24 minutes or until they’re charred in places and tender.
  8. Combine the garlic and capers in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped.
  9. Add the scallions, parsley, lemon zest and lemon juice to the processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  10. Pour the rest of the olive oil into the processor and process until the mixture forms a loose paste consistency — like pesto. Add a pinch of salt.

Why You Should Consider a Truck Camper


Truck campers are some of the most underrated RVs in the industry. They’re available in a wide range of sizes and floorplans to suit a variety of travelers — even traveling families. Even more, truck campers are an affordable, easy-to-maneuver RV option that can travel just about anywhere.

They’re Luxurious

Many travelers see truck campers as an upgrade from traditional tent camping, but many truck campers are so luxurious that they remain comfortable for months or even years of non-stop travel. In fact, many RV travelers have chosen to travel in a truck camper after trying other models, like motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels.

Modern truck campers can be as luxurious, or more luxurious than, many other RV models. Truck campers come in layouts with as much as three slide-out sections, full dry baths, private master bedrooms, cozy living areas and even residential-style kitchens.

They’re Affordable

In addition to providing unexpected luxuries, truck campers tend to be more affordable than their travel trailer and motorhome counterparts. According to Truck Camper Adventures Magazine, most truck camper owners average between 10 to 15 miles-per-gallon, and many diesel haulers with lightweight truck campers get as much as 20 miles per gallon. Those are numbers that will leave traditional travel trailer, fifth wheel and motorhome owners in awe.

They Can Go Anywhere

Truck campers are often the RV of choice for adventurous travelers. These compact and easy-to-drive RVs can go anywhere your truck can go, which means you don’t have to confine yourself to paved roads and traditional campgrounds. The compact size of truck campers also makes them easier to maneuver, so you can fit in tight spaces and reach roads that traditional RVs will never see.

They Come in All Shapes and Sizes

We offer a huge selection of new and used RVs here at Princess Craft RVs in Round Rock. Whether you’re interested in a pop-up truck camper or a hard-sided one with three slide-out sections, we’ll help you find your dream RV today.

Introducing the Cirrus Truck Camper


If you want to upgrade from a tent or a small trailer, but don’t want to – or can’t – haul a larger travel trailer with your truck, consider a Cirrus truck camper. The truck camper slides onto your pickup bed when you want to use it, and slides off onto jack stands when not in use.


The 2016 Cirrus 800 is a non-slide, hard-sided model designed for short bed trucks. You may thing this is small; however, the interior floor is 8 feet, 3 inches and the height is 6 feet, 5 inches so taller people have room in the camper.

The camper weighs in at about 1,955 pounds dry and 2,490 pounds with standard features. It is self contained and includes a 19-gallon black tank, 16-gallon gray tank and a 26-gallon fresh water tank. It is also set up for a 21-gallon propane tank and two batteries. The Cirrus also features a wheel well-height basement for the tanks and convectors to keep the area and the interior floor warm.

The Heating System

The Cirrus 800 uses the Alde heating system, which features a compact broiler unit, control panel, circulation pump and convectors. The convectors are made with aluminum pipes with metal fins to radiate heat and radiators. Heated fluid, in most cases, Ethylene glycol antifreeze is pumped though the broiler and pumps to heat the camper.

This Hydronic heating system replaces the hot water heater and the RV furnace and is more efficient and quieter. The system is not currently used in the United States, other than in the Cirrus truck camper, but is popular in Europe.

Since the system is completely silent, you can’t hear the heating system while you are inside the camper. The system generate radiant heat, so you’ll feel heat everywhere, not just from the vents; and no part of the camper will be cooler because the vents aren’t place properly. And, since the heat works on natural air circulation, you won’t hear fans.

The system runs on 110-volt power or on propane. If you are using it while on propane, it does use a tiny amount of power from the batteries; however, it’s a low amp draw so you won’t wear the batteries down.

Interior Features

The interior features a cab-over bunk, overhead storage, sink, stove, fridge, microwave, shower, foot-flush toilet, bathroom sink, U-shaped dinette and plenty of space to move about. The dinette folds down into a bunk.
