RE: Aluminum Frame vs Wood Frame for washboard roads.

There’s plenty of both aluminum and wood frames that break or have broken. I don’t think that’s a good part of the decision either. I think it’s likely a clamshell design would hold up better which is fine as long you don’t want a slide. On the plus side, they are usually really well insulated. Other than that, slow down and have good shocks and good suspension. My 14 year old camper is still going strong even with slides. There are many on here that have older models of other brands that have done well also.

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Oh no, hopefully you won't be last on the repair list.

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

1. not if you have 12' TC on 3/4 ton truck 2. not too many 8 ft wide parking spots left 3. you can have those in van weighting 1/4 what TC combo weights 4. some campgrounds don't like TC 5. have not seen TC with 4WD differential. Of course, “my” list is my list. So, you are just wrong again, but why not list your list instead of being wrong about mine?

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

Then why is one of the top 5 "advantages" of a TC, is that it can "off-road?" Not for me. I made a thread, btw. ;)

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

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Back in the day, I checked email. Calls were rare. Retired now. No, I don’t miss it.

It’s nice of you to be a good sport about being last.

RE: Halloween Or Not

We’ll be ready, but we’ve never had a trick or treater where we live now.

RE: Considering building camper from scratch...

I guess if you need a hobby it’s fine. Otherwise, I don’t think it makes sense to rebuild using old components. I don’t think it’s likely to be strong enough for doing true offroad. You’ll bend the truck frame as well when you carry significant weight. Any way, look at all of the available floor plans for ideas on what you can cut out to make it simple. Finally, many products are expensive right now with wood products up to double what they were this time last year.

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Blame it on 2020, Kentucky beat Tennessee. Congrats Kentucky fans. On the plus side, it was bad enough that Tennessee coach finally put in Harrison Bailey who played pretty well even if he only had one series.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Not today but recently, winterized.

RE: Truck Camper Weight...I know, I know

I don’t think FAWR and/or RAWR means how much you can brake. That being said, it would make logical sense that the truck could probably stop the GCWR or a little more assuming they have a bit more capability built in. I’d also say the F450s in many years have much better brakes than other years and yet the GCWR is only a few more thousand lbs more. This is your original statement , no mention of trailer brakes . And?

RE: Truck Camper Weight...I know, I know

I seriously doubt any US vehicle has brakes designed to stop its GCWR without trailer brakes . Almost every state requires trailer brakes on trailers over 3000-4000# gross weight . That’s fine, but what if the trailer brakes fail or are marginally working. Are you saying the truck/trailer is supposed to just run over people until they stop or something else? There’s surely some safety margin for those not at max trailer weight. Unless you plan on carrying an awful lot, the truck camper hauling will never be anywhere close to GCWR. You’ll definitely be way over axle ratings before reaching GCWR if you aren’t towing.

RE: Roof repair dilemma

You probably could build the area up with Eternabond.

RE: Best portable generators advise I have seen for years

I don’t think the dog knew what to do when the CO detector went off, but it seems like a person did. People have died from CO in a car, too. Sometimes on purpose ... sometimes not. Usually in a garage.

RE: HappiJac 4500

I’m glad they worked it out for you. Bummer that it failed though.

RE: Truck Camper Weight...I know, I know

He hasn't even put people in and he's overloaded. Maybe, but also his axle could be a couple of thousand pounds higher. For sure, the tires would be rated higher than 9000 with 4 of them. I think all of the pickup bed DRWs have artificially low GVWR.
