RE: Lance Sagging Cabover

Thank you everyone for your responses. Not the news I was hoping for but somewhat expected. I went though Burbman’s rebuild post and it’s a bigger job than I thought. I’m truly impressed at your skill, Burbman. You did an amazing job. Although, I have the skills and most of the tools, I doubt I can free up enough time so the project doesn’t take months to finish. My first option now would be to find an affordable used camper that is in better shape than mine. (Unfortunately, it seems like a bad time to be RV shopping.) Second option is to attach an external brace which may limit the use of the rear doors on the truck but would allow me additional time to find a replacement camper. The last option would be to fix mine. Definitely, not taking it to a shop based on Specta’s estimate which is probably low for Southern California. Any further comments, opinions, or suggestions are appreciated.

Lance Sagging Cabover

I have a 1999 Lance Lite 845 that has a sagging cabover section. While off the truck, if I level the main floor and then measure the angle of bed floor, it’s sagging by 1.43 degrees. (Measured with an instrument capable of .05 degree precision.) That equates to 2 inches over the 80 inch bed length. It’s very noticeable whether I level the main floor or the bed floor. Either way something feels off. Is this normal or potentially hazardous? As in the cabover section failing and hitting the roof of the truck! I don’t see any wrinkling or stretching of the aluminum siding. It's spent it's whole life in Southern California so not much rain and no apparent leaks but quite a few bouncy dirt roads.

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

Honda EU2200 only used to run the AC during the summer months. The solar panel handles charging the camper battery and other devices. Home Depot had $100 off the EU2200 and with credit card application they had another $100 off.

RE: Rancho shock question

On my previous truck (GMC), I tried the Rancho 9000 but ended up with Bilsteins. They had a much better ride with and without the camper loaded. Current truck (F250) has Kings. Good with the camper but very bouncy without it.
