RE: New license plate for my TC.

It's a bit of a pain to move the plate from the TC back to the truck, but here they want to see your tag so........

RE: Takes guts to post video like this.

I did wide long and heavy transport for a few years and learned all about tail swing. Dips can ruin your day also. The list is long lol...

RE: Truck bed camper shim

I have the short bed I guess I can find mud flaps and slide them under the mat front and back. I did notice a pretty good rock backwards when stopping, but the truck was real low on the back and I thought that was the cause.

RE: Truck bed camper shim

I checked my 2015 GMC 3500 and yup a four foot level rocks about 1/8" centered over the drive axle. You can't really see it till you get down and look straight up the floor of the bed. But with a one inch stall mat would this be an issue?

RE: Happijacs, what will happen if.........

"Never raise the back of the camper higher than the front". Why? If you seriously have to ask this question then you do not need to be owning a truck camper... I disagree with this statement.

RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

It is not always easy to realize that NOW is the time to shop for what you will be comfortable paying for. This is what I was experiencing. Retiring can be a bit stressful on its own, but with me I saved and invested, did okay, and just bought outright what I wanted. Talk about butterflies. But then was the time for me. The butterflies have turned into days spent getting the rig ready. GOOD TIMES AWAIT YOU!! I just wished I didn't need specta to post my pics for me lol

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Thanks guys! Yes I like it too. I'm still getting to know the thing. I have replaced the front bumpers that are 3 3/4" deep with small dock bumbers that are 2 1/4" deep getting me 1 1/2" closer to the cab. Still have to sanitize the fresh water system.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

https://photos.app.goo.gl/JEu4kLXGWK8FDoE78 Picked it up finally! This was on 4-23 Got it home and made an appointment to get help with the rear axle. Love this little thing, fits in the driveway better than I hoped actually.

RE: Buying a new TC

Mammoth that sounds like sound thinking. I too am new. I was looking at the 8-11 also but went with the Wolf Creek 890, which is 500? lbs lighter so I don't plan on doing any up grades. I already have the helper springs. You will know straight off if you do need/want to upgrade. That is a top of the line camper have fun with it!

RE: Who is a Full Timer with a Camper?

Wildman, there is a youtube couple who full time in a Lance 1025, I believe, with a little dog, and seem to love it. Destination Open Road. I think they are looking to upsize though. You might find some of their stuff interesting. Thank you for answering the call.

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Well when I ordered mine I asked that all the graphics be left off except the WC logo. Since my truck is all white it might go better? That's the hope anyway. It should be delivered any day now.

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yup that 890 looks great! I have the short bed model delivering soon. Congrats to your friend tho!

RE: Happijac rear bumper mounts

Curious etrailer does list the rears. rear - https://www.etrailer.com/Camper-Tie-Downs/TorkLift/TLC3215.html front/rear - https://www.etrailer.com/tiedown-2015_GMC_Sierra+3500.htm?fUrl=-pm-TorkLift Their site not the easiest to navigate. Default browsing shows fronts or front & rear. Do you have running boards? Thats the only thing I found that directs to no listings on etrailers site as T/L indeed does not make front mounts for your truck if it has running boards. Torklift doesn't sell anything directly to consumers, only thru vendors. Thanks AnEv...I don't have running boards. They wouldn't look pretty after a trip or two off road. But still when I go to the fitment page at Torklift MY search ends at factory trailer hitch. At my RV shop they came right up. The rear mounts. Since I know I can get them, I'll keep them in mind should the rear Happijacs give me any problems. Don't think they will.

RE: Happijac rear bumper mounts

Etrailer flat out lied to me Or maybe they were just misinformed. I called three different times and spoke to three different people. Unlikely that all three were misinformed. I’m sure they would have preferred to sell you tie downs, since their business is.....selling stuff. That's the part that makes zero sense. But my rv shop told me they see this all the time.

RE: Happijac rear bumper mounts

Torklift 3215 from Amazon Lol thanks for that link! Those are cheaper than the ones I could get from my RV shop. He did say that I would not be able to get these unless through dealer or repair shop. And when I looked a couple of weeks ago nothing came up on Amazon. Etrailer flat out lied to me when they said "Torklift does not make anything for the rear of your truck". When I pressed her she said that's what it shows and I would have to go with happijac. One would think that accurate info would be dispensed from these suppliers.
