RE: memory foam mattress freezing

The AF truck campers use a 58” X 80” mattress, regular queen would be a pretty tight fit. 58"x 80" is what mine came with, however everyone replaces it with a standard 60" wide queen. They do fit, it just makes it tighter and harder to put the fitted sheet on. I have a standard queen topper (60") from Costco on top of my factory mattress (58") and you notice the extra width when putting the fitted sheet on, but it's easier due to the narrower mattress on the bottom.

RE: It looks like my truck camper days are over.

Wow Specta, glad to hear that you survived with minimal injuries. Sorry to hear about truck and camper though, I know you took pride in both and took care of them. Stay safe and I hope your recovery goes well!

RE: Denali Hwy 8

The resolution on Google Earth is not good but I think I have spotted the two gravel pits just a little east of the bridge. One of those should do just fine for a night or two. The first one is Valdez Mine Road and the second one to the east is Windy Creek. Both are safe places to camp and visit with others.

RE: Denali Hwy 8

There are a few larger gravel pits that many of us have stayed in over the years. Windy Creek and Veldez Mine roads are both near the Susitna River crossing and are popular camping spots. Windy Creek has a large level gravel pit, Veldez Mine road has pull throughs and pull outs. The only Campground with electric is Alpine Creek Lodge which is almost exactly at the halfway point of the highway. Pic is in the Windy Creek pit.]

RE: Help - jacks are draining my batteries

It's your batteries, time to replace them with quality true deep cycle batteries. Don't buy the common RV/Marine combo batteries, they will drain fast.

RE: Generator Gas Storage

How about a front or rear receiver rack? Your cans will be outside, but under the camper's overhang for protection. I carried five cans on my rear rack when driving the Alaska Highway so I could drive by remote desperation stop stations in Canada.

RE: Generator Gas Storage

I store my 1 gallon gas cans in the front fenderwell. The storage space is accessible thru doors on each side near the front floor area. It's great storage that stays pretty dry, out of the sun, and has plenty of fresh air ventilation. You can see the drivers side door in this photo.

RE: Levelling blocks for camper on driveway with 2 degree grade

Ok since sliding is a concern should I use typical plastic blocks then? The truck camper is also going to be unloaded during winter and there may be some frozen moisture though I will clean it best I can. If anyone can recommend a product I would appreciate it! Thanks! Not sure plastic would be best idea, think I would want rubber. In my life, I would use mud flap or belting. Maybe floor mat. Grab a alligator off highway, cut to length. Semi mudflaps are pretty inexpensive and can be cut with a razor knife or saw. I bought a couple for around $23.00 ea

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.
