RE: Alternative to Onan 2500LP Generator?

Westinghouse is just a label slapped on a cheapo generator like the others. Your Honda is better.

RE: 1979 Lance TC

Want weights? Weigh it. Unless you're trying to haul it with a short bed F150 you've probably got plenty of truck. Be aware that it probably won't fit in a GM made after 1987, a Ford after 1996, or a Dodge after 1993. Those are the old "squarebody" style trucks that were being built in 1979. Fords kept the old body style through 1997. Chevy/GMC trucks are still the old square body through 1991 if they’re a

RE: ATTN Stable Lift Owners

No, removing the front hoop and then using the lift to raise the camper is an extremely bad idea. You’ll probably be OK. I couldn’t love the Stable-Lift more. It’s way more solid and stable than any corner jacks, and it’s way easier.

RE: Tailgate support rack

There’s a very simple solution. Cut a 2x10 to fit across left and right into the slots your truck bed already has for that reason. It will do double duty. Put it across the front of your truck bed when the camper is in… that something you should be doing anyway, it helps spread the load across from the camper if you have to do a moderate to hard brake slam. The front walls are very thin and delicate and bend easily. Then when the camper is off, move the board to the slots at the rear of the bed and it becomes your tailgate.

RE: Camper looks like its not level

I’m pretty sure the issue being asked about has nothing to do with the suspension, or the truck sagging.below level. It’s the optical illusion that the camper is actually sagging at the rear IN THE LEVEL TRUCK BED. It’s the illusion the the camper is sagging relative to the truck, not the whole truck sagging relative to the ground. And it’s an illusion. You need to measure it yourself… get a straightedge, board or whatever that reaches left and right across the tops of your bed rails. Measure from it down to the bed floor at the front and at the rear. I’m pretty sure you’ll figure out why the rig looks the way it does. You do not want to put a board under it at the rear, because the camper is built to be supported sitting flat on the floor. You’ll put all the weight and stress right where the board is, which isn’t good.

RE: Tailgate for a truck camper

The only REAL issue is the cables or straps that hold the gate when it’s open usually interfere with the camper because it widens out right behind the truck bed, and/or the camper has holding tanks below the rear overhang area, or a black tank dump port. As for the notion that the gate will be damaged because it isn’t designed to support much weight, how much weight is really on it if you can remove the tailgate and carry the camper without it?!!
