RE: Hardside TC for 3900 pound payload shortbed

Wolf Creek makes 3 models that fit your requirements (tried and true 850, outgoing 840, and new 890). I've had my WC850 for 10 summer seasons and love it (3,200lb wet and loaded ready to camp). They are made on the same assembly line, same interior looks, and same quality as Arctic Fox campers.

RE: 2018 Wolf Creek 850 wiring diagram

On my 2014 WC850 the jack controller is under the sink, battery charger under the step on the left, water pump under the step on the right. Power wires in the battery box for the main power, generator, and solar.

RE: Guide for Narrowing Bigfoot Cabovers?

You're looking at a 3,000 lb truck camper (wet and loaded) with a truck that has 1/2 of that weight's payload. You either need a much lighter camper or a much larger 3500 series truck.

RE: Armless Rear Awning

Carefree box awnings. I have on the dining room side of my camper.

RE: Camper Tie Downs for an OBS Ford

HappiJac's have the better holding angles and yes, they also bolt to your trucks frame not just the body like those who have never installed them claim. The rear bumper also has an additional brace from the frame going back the bottom of the bumper near the buttons.

RE: Tie Down Angle Best Practice

Straight up and down is the least preferred as it allows the camper to move all over. The attached HappiJac illustration shows the most preferred holding angles. You'll them facing forward/backward and then angled inwards to hold in every direction.

RE: got a new camper

Nice upgrade! Now to find new homes for all the "stuff" so you can find it again. What will you miss most from your previous camper?

Part of Alaska Highway closes due to road washout

The Alaska Highway is closed to traffic north of Liard Hot Springs in British Columbia, near the Yukon Territory border, after a section of the road collapsed due to flooding this week. The Cassiar highway should be a good bypass of this area.

RE: Wheel Well External Access Doors

It depends on your camper for access from the inside or from the rear. I have access doors and store things in dry bags (shoes, kitty litter, shop vac, etc) in front of the wheel well, things in the rear part could fall out if they were small. I could put skis in before loading but wouldn't be able to get them out without off-loading the camper.

RE: New shocks?

I've been running Bilstein 4600's for the past 5 years, great ride and a durable shock.

RE: First big trip - Newbie questions

I always fill my fresh tank before any trip, and refill it every time I empty the black and gray tanks. It does not affect gas mileage like speed and wind do. Why take a chance with bad water on the road in your system or blowing a water line due to over pressurization?

RE: Where have all the Everests Gone

They aren't near as popular as you may think, very few dealers and expensive. Remember Lance probably sells over 50% of the truck camper market so they are everywhere. I see few other Wolf Creek campers on my travels' too, but I'm good with it knowing I own what I want for quality and design. You'll be enjoying your Everest soon enough.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

We just completed a 5,795 mile twelve state trip to visit family and friends whom we haven't seen in years. The extra gas cost was worth every penny, even when only averaging 9mpg with the winds and multiple mountain pass crossings in the west. There is no guarantee for tomorrow.

RE: Twisted Truck? UPDATE-Fixed!

I use 2x6's under my tires s they're easy to store in my little cubbies. The key to driving up on a stack is idling up in 4 Low (4x4 low range), you can climb up a stack of three without any problem.

RE: Replace OEM seat base with air ride seat base on Chevy 3500

Thank you everyone for your reply. Maybe a air inflated cushion would be a lot easier way to go. I am trying to make the driver a lot more comfortable. Brenda does all the driving, since I have a serious vision loss. A lot of things to consider. My wife uses a Purple mattress seat cushion, she loves it! It was pricey, but a life saver when riding in the truck for hours and days at a time.

RE: Short box Camper Questions

There are plenty of short bed campers out there. However, the headache rack will be an issue as you will have to move the center of gravity behind the rear axle and also raise the camper to clear the top of the rack which will make you even more top heavy. Remove the headache rack would be the first thing to do, otherwise you may look and feel like a porpoise going down the road at a reduced speed. Most short bed campers are around 8' to 8-1/2' with about a 2' overhang.

RE: Truck modifications

I have a similar setup as Hardscrabble and have the same opinion on the upgrades on my GMC 2500 & Wolf Creek 850. Lower StableLoads (single best thing I did for leveling ride and sway), HD Timbren's (I added these for those times I haul a trailer), Bilstein 4600 (big improvement over stock GM shocks), and just two years ago added a Big Wig sway bar for the crosswinds here in my new home state of Idaho. We are planning a 5,500-mile trip this summer to visit family and friends after years of living in Alaska and not being able to just head over for a visit. This will be the 10th summer with our camper and our first multi-month trip adventuring across a dozen states.

RE: Wind Deflector

I've got the valence, built and painted the mount, and have the 3M VHB to attach it. All that remains is sticking it to the camper. That requires at least two on/off cycles which I will get to in the next couple of weeks. There is some question as to where the ideal position would be. It would be nice to be able to trial it at several positions before mounting permanently. I'm guessing about even with the top of the window glass or slightly behind that. Sweet! Looking forward to hearing about your results, both good and bad.
