RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

When one says critter, something small like a rabbit or prairie dog is what comes to my mind. . . In Montana, we have critters that are a bit bigger … black bears, grizzlies, cougars, oh my. :D

RE: Contracting out for re-caulking

I don’t have a recommendation for you other than if you visit places that have a lower standard of living than CA get it done while you are there. At $1000, it seems you could take a good trip for half of that.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

Photoposting isn’t that hard any more. Follow the instructions on the site that was made for posting pics.

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

You camp somewhere you don’t trust your kids safety being in a tent (not really a tent, more of a popup camper) or just a helicopter dad? I can think of pros and cons to the tip outs but ….not life safety. There are a lot of places that only allow hardsides due to critters. Maybe he camps in one of those places.

RE: Hmm... another use for Tork-Lift?

I agree it’s probably too wide. But, hey, I don’t think they are following any normal standards, so it’s ok, right? ;)

Pretty funny.

RE: New Ram 5500 Build

I would put them on. Worse case they are only a bit of time to put on. Who knows how much they will keep off salt/deicer from the rest of the truck or whatever you are towing.

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

I don’t know how big your kids are, but several manufacturers have a fold down bunk above the dinette. Host has several models that will work. Just go check out their website.

Is their anyone that has put a TRAVEL LITE 800 SBX ON HALF TON pick up? I have the chance to get a 2010 Travel Lite 800 sbx for a good price. I have a 2008 Ford F150 Super Cab two wheel drive with a 6.5' bed. Trying to find out if these are a good fit. Do you have any info on the weight of the TC? Also, do you have any details on the payload for your truck?
jimh425 09/12/21 10:19pm Truck Campers

Need to know a lot more info from you such as both dry weight and authorized total gross weight when fully loaded of both the trailer and then the truck. . This is the truck camper forum not the travel trailer forum.

RE: Kingstar Camino 88 - Any Input

Sorry, never heard of it.

RE: Truck and accessories for New Popup Camper

Payload usually includes people as well, and as far as the TC goes, most of that weight will only be on the rear. Most dealers don’t seem to care if you are overloaded or not. I think you should consider a Super Duty F250/350 or similar. Yep, they are a lot heavier. Or, go with something like a Four Wheel Camper stripped down model if you want to stay with a F150. That way, you can minimize the weight and only get the options you really want.

RE: Inside to outside temp difference

I think it depends on how long is it sitting without heating/cooling and is it in the sun or not. For mine, sometimes it’s hotter than the cold air outside, for instance when it is in the sun. Sometimes cooler on a hot day, sometimes the same if it’s been sitting a long time.

RE: 18" tire question - UPDATED

Looks like you are ready for Winter!

RE: Man, they don't make 'em like they used to

I think the problem is still RVs are built one at a time like a house. You never know if an individual one is going to be bad or not. There’s not a lot of innovation for the past few years other than floorplans. No reason to buy new unless you just want to.

RE: Camper Battery Charging Issue

If you had it plugged in for several days and didn’t fully charge, it’s almost certain at least one battery is bad. Most people say replace both at the same time. That’s what I would do. Btw, most RV batteries are only warranted for 2 years, so any time longer than that is good.
jimh425 09/10/21 05:33pm Truck Campers

We need to know the weights, but my guess is not. A 9 1/2 TC is probably in the neighborhood of 3000 lbs or more. Probably way over the tire/axle rating of your truck. In comparison, the highest rated 150s at most usually carry stripped down 6 1/2 TCs.

RE: new topic

Do either or both of these photos open up a new discussion? Nope, no truck camper. :D

RE: New license plate for my TC.

Montana requires both plates. I leave them on and never had an issue. :D

RE: Load center wiring

I think it just depends on how the rest of the wiring was done. So, maybe not wrong, but at least a secondary path.
