RE: Lance 1131 Camper Tent Rebuild

Feel free to spam it from time to time, it'll be a month before I'm on my feet and physically able to remove it from the camper to send it in. Sucks because he's got a good 4+ month backlog so now's the time to send it in!

RE: Lance 1131 Camper Tent Rebuild

Nope, looks like my seal is good to go and the camper is stored indoors which helps with that sort of thing. The tent is $450 to reconstruct but you do have to send the old one in. The crappy plastic window goes away and gets replaced with a screen. You get all the window cover flaps with it that it came with as well. I asked about insulation but was told it'll create condensation and mold issues, so will basically get a new replacement of this tent that will hopefully last as long as we keep this camper. We have more issues with UV rays here than we do moisture.

RE: Lance 1131 Camper Tent Rebuild

I summoned a bit more Google-fu and found the place I'd found years ago, Bear Creek Canvas in Spencer, WI! These guys know this tent quite well. I'll let you know what they say.

Lance 1131 Camper Tent Rebuild

I tried searching on here, I can't remember if I'd posted on this or not. I found nothing in my email either, I could swear I had documentation somewhere. Anyway, I want to get the rear tent replaced on my Lance 1131. The tent itself is a discontinued/obselete item so a direct replacement is not an option. I could swear that I'd been emailing someone from the midwest but when I google I find nothing. The reason I'm bent on using whoever that was is because he/they were familiar with my exact tent as opposed to just being a generic canvas shop like I can find around my parts. If anyone here has experience with this and recommends an RV specific or otherwise person I'm all ears. I'd also like to add insulation if anyone's been down that road before. I'm curious if you can still get the back door shut on the thing with a thicker tent.

RE: Ford 7.3 gas engine

You can get a centrifugal for the 7.3. Brings the cost inline with the diesel, but the thing gets down pretty **** hard. I'd like to see a roots or screw blowe get released.

RE: truck camper and towing a flat trailer advice

thanks,,, my gvwr is 6300 lb my front axle is 3000lb, my rear axle is 3450lb with my stock tires 265/70 r17 Are you SURE about that? Those sound like F150 numbers, and a pretty light duty F150 at that. Usually a 2000's era SRW F350 has a GVWR of around 10000lbs, a front axle rating of 5000lbs+ and a rear axle rating of at least 7000lbs. This. My 1500 has ratings right at the numbers the OP is spouting off. My 97 GMC dually has a RAWR of 7500, but the axle itself is rated to something like 8700# last I checked. 3500# axle ratings get you NOWHERE, as in 500# of tongue weight and no camper whatsoever.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Turned the heat on a couple days ago, drained today, will winterize and clean tomorrow. Also gonna refill propane for the winter. It lives in my hangar, so whenever I work out there in the winter I'll hide in the camper from time to time to warm up.

RE: Sewer hose?

My problem with the **** hose is that the end doesn't even fit into the compartment so I keep it in a non-**** oriented compartment.

RE: I Went Camping With Five Girls!

That's every camping trip for me. The wife, 2 daughters, and a girl dog. OK that's only 4, but there's ANOTHER chic in the oven. I'm getting chopped next week. A man's got to know his limitations.

RE: What are the top 5 advantages of a TC?

Feel free to add your list of the top 5 advantages of a TC. Here are mine. 1. Able to pull a significant trailer. 2. Can park in many parking lots, so it travels well. 3. Have my kitchen/bed/bathroom/bed with me. 4. Easy to get campground spaces due to short length. 5. Good for winter since it is on my 4 wheel drive truck 6. It ability to pull double duty. This is the #1 reason I chose a truck camper. It kinda ties into #1 though. I can just go camping or I can go racing and still have the camper with me.

RE: Sidewall of truck height

My 1131 sits ass down in the bed of my 97, I'd like to hear more about this crown. Is there a bulge in the middle or something?

RE: Arctic Fox Says no off road????

It’s been my experience that the bigger/taller/heavier the camper is, the driver will say “I give up” off road sooner than the camper will. :):) This guy. I'm a wimp. But I'm sure even at my level onlookers are shaking their heads with the places I go.

RE: 350/3500 trucks, engine weight gas vs diesel

IMO if you have to ask, it sounds like you probably won't be doing any hardcore off roading? In which case the difference between the 2 would be nil.

RE: Insurance Coverage facts wanted:

So my 1131 policy is an add-on to my K3500's policy. When I added said coverage, no concerns were raised. I added the coverage more out of concern for hail and getting run into rather than me running into someone. I can't speak to any claims processes to date and hope never to.

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Load it up and send it. The leaf pack is no different than an F450. If you're not happy then mod it. I've hauled my camper with ~9k enclosed car hauler with 0psi in the bags (no wind) and it was fine. This in a 97 GMC dually. Bags were the only mod for that trip and as stated, they were empty. Forgot my air tank that day. Your truck is far more capable off the shelf so I would have absolutely zero worries loading the thing as is.

RE: A camper you may never see in your lifetime Is there a build thread on this somewhere?

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

Start trip preparation. Boat got renewal on the net, truck needs to do smog and wait in probably long line to DMV as they don't do appointments any more. So tried to start the truck and move TC only to discover both batteries died. I had them disconnected and each had separate battery maintainer, yet 3 years passed and they are promptly malfunctioning. If it makes you feel any better, I have **** luck with batteries too.

Jesus can you imagine if they rolled out a triple slide one of those today?

RE: Air bag question and suspension in general I guess

I'm thinking OP should see if a 3500 leaf pack with upper overloads will be easy to fit to his 2500. Then his empty ride won't suffer as much. I need to hunt down a C&C pack myself as it has 3 uppers vs my single. That would make me less bag dependent. I air mine up around 90 and I'm still on the overloads. Just have 2 valve stems screwed into the fuel cap area. Having bags and upper overloads also helps spread the weight over more than just 2 points per side.
