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.

RE: (((Update))) we bought it / 1995 Lance squire lite 185

Are you just painting or using contact paper on the walls?

RE: Joined the club today.

Despite forums being a dying breed, this one seems alive and well. Tons of good info to be had and it would be unusual to wait more than a day for a response here. Welcome.

RE: Today was my first time......

I drop jacks every time. Too much wiggling around if I don't. Guess I'm a wimp?

RE: As to camper weight, what does this sticker indicate?

A guy I race with has a 2015ish F250 with a ~2500# Arctic Fox and pulls his heavy ass 24' enclosed car hauler with walk on roof. All he has is bags, but he does say he wishes he had that F350 upper overload. Otherwise no troubles for the last few years of use.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

I have a 12 and a 9 year old, even in the 1191 since they love to fight one sleeps on the floor and they switch places the next night. We are always converting the dinette into a bed and it works good, but still not great for grown adults, let alone two. I honestly don't know how big the rear tent option is since I have never seen one in person, I know they do have heat and air ducts to it and I think you can seal it up so it can be doable into late fall, not sure how well it would do during winter. My other suggestion would be pull a teardrop camper behind the TC? My tent looks to be about the size of the dinette. We steal its "mattress" for the bunk above the dinette and fold it in half.

RE: Looking into a Truck Camper

If Lance is on the table I'll plug my 1131 again. A queen over the cab, dinette bed, single bunk over the dinette, and a flip out tent in the back we have yet to use. The easier to find 1191 could be had with or without the tent with an otherwise identical floor plan. Single slide unit and 100% functional with the slide in. I use a Torklift superhitch and 48" extension to pull my enclosed car hauler behind it, so you'll have no tongue weight issues with your proposed setup, but I wonder about braking since the vehicle in tow can't help there if it's on all fours.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

My Lance 1131 comes close. 2 in the queen over the cab, 1 in the dinette bunk, and one in the flip out rear tent bunk, but that's not hard sided. Luckily the little ones are still little.

RE: truck swerved with hard braking

Sounds to me like it was a trailbraking scenario and you didn't realize it in the heat of the moment. Get the truck checked, but don't chase your tail too much over this.

RE: truck swerved with hard braking

I am the OP. Thank you for the input. Something I thought of since I made the original post is that the truck had an alignment problem at the time of this braking incident. The front tires were wearing (very) unevenly. The outer tread on both tires was worn much deeper than the inside. I ended up getting a full set of tires and an alignment. The truck had always been hard to keep in the lane since when it was new. After many adjustments I finally found out it was this alignment problem. Since the new tires and the alignment the drift problem is gone. I'm wondering if the alignment problem might have caused the braking problem when I drifted lanes with a very hard brake. No need to jump on me. I WILL get the brakes checked. Bad alignment should not pull the truck to the side in heavy braking. My advise to get the brakes inspected ASAP got deleted, so somebody has different opinions. You've clearly never had a bad alignment.

RE: truck swerved with hard braking

Cross camber or cross caster will cause a pull and can be exacerbated as the suspension goes through it's range of travel, I bet the nose took a big dive with the weight of the camper coming down on it.

Were you going straight or going around a bend?

RE: How inconvenient is a cargo trailer?

I have a side entrance so the trailer doesn't affect getting in and out. I intentionally sought out a side entrance for this reason. That said, I pull a 24' enclosed. Not to campgrounds, but to the race track. I have yet to have an issue getting fuel, finding a place to park, etc. Probably helps I've been doing this for years before I had the camper, but it's simply a non-issue for me as this combo has been my long term goal all along.

RE: Truck camper battery, or lack thereof

My neighbor's Palomino popup doesn't have batteries, but he keeps a battery in front of each fender in the truck bed that he plugs in when he loads the camper.
