RE: Cybertruck RV prototype pictures released

I'll personally pass on this one. Maybe someone else will come up with something more appealing (to me), utilitarian and "all electric" in the future.... https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/news/ford-f-150-lighting-for-truck-campers/

Cybertruck RV prototype pictures released

Cyberlandr, $50K "RV" for the Cybertruck. No thanks. https://www.businessinsider.com/prototype-of-cyberlandr-camper-for-tesla-cybertrucks-unveiled-2021-9?fbclid=IwAR0WynhuhJI7CylsnQxys0M3s37twRJ6YSA1oce_vMnGSpDUrd4MLIacNlQ?utm_source=copy-link&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=topbar

RE: Contracting out for re-caulking

I just redid my 08 1191 at the beginning of the year, if you are doing it right it is no joke. I would say I had over 16 hours into it doing 1 side per day on the the weekends and the roof took over 4 hours since I was just cleaning the old caulk and putting new dicor overtop the old caulk. I totally stripped all the old caulk off the rest of the camper and cleaned it and applied new geocell proflex. All in all it took about 4 tubes of Dicor on the roof and 6 tubes of Geocell for the vertical surfaces. I would say $1000.00 + materials is a very fair price if done correctly, but with the ways things are today that is probably $2000.00 if you can find someone that can fit it into their schedule.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

Happijac's are not so great on new trucks with all the plastic and aluminum, torklift is the way to go on them. Congrats on the new camper! I would say post pics but on this forum its a royal PIA.

RE: Hmm... another use for Tork-Lift?

That is one thing that Happijac's can't do :)

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

I didn't even bring up the dinette fold up bunk since it usually has a weight limit on it and is very cramped, I think it was 75-100 lbs on the ones I had looked at.

RE: West Coast Jamboree 2022, Who is Interested?

Would love to see your setup and compare notes but I don't think my rig would make it that far :)

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

Find one with a REAR TENT. It will be hard to find one but lance 1191's had it and some Host campers had it as an option. My 2 kids split sleeping on the floor and dine out, I wish could have found one with a good rear tent when I was looking but the tent material on the ones I found needed to be redone and I didn't have the patience at the time to source new material.

RE: Onboard Air Systems (Updated w/ Pics)

The pain in airing tires isn't so much the time it takes but holding rather holding the connector on the valve stem. Amen to that. I just spent the weekend down to the beach and timed my air down/up with the crossfires going to both tires on the rear. Air down 80psi to 24psi: 12 minutes (using auto air deflator) Air up 24psi to 80psi: 6 minutes (using parks provided air pumps) Holding the provided air chuck on for 6 minutes (per side) just right so it doesn't leak is no joke.

RE: Onboard Air Systems (Updated w/ Pics)

If anything now you can sit at the pump and charge people for air :)

RE: Onboard Air Systems (Updated w/ Pics)

Thanks! That is an awesome setup. I would love to have something like that for when I come off the beach for airing my tires back up. Speaking of which, I am loving these crossfires, I can air up/down both tires from 1 valve stem, no more reaching in to the inner tire. https://dsm01pap001files.storage.live.com/y4m3iENzYOOV-ypbQZAq8hDu5wrCgHDv1CXXdOADGvv9NBv9d0YtOMbSUBBy4BNxcgYLtbjPrfkRBca1ICiYIkwKNGs0tiB6ga1RxHCnPVxWJtU6fBgLGhtg4PcGg2MszRtfhLoXfwPJWwKIGcfebxVS2g4lJ5JV3Ggbjxmd6iU13-VT0eTFeP5THL9pGOjMKJk?width=660&height=371&cropmode=none

RE: Onboard Air Systems (Updated w/ Pics)

How are you distributing the air to the front and back?

Looking good so far.

RE: Tag axle for truck camper rigs

Someone posted a real life user review of this over on lance owners: https://community.lanceowners.org/topic/pack-enterprises-weight-distribution-tag-trailer-wdtt Interesting setup.

RE: 96 F-250 diesel, campers under 2300?

This is what that tag axle guy was saying this kind of setup is what he built it for. Someone needing extra carrying capability with a lower rated truck.

RE: Roof concern?

The adhesive has given up, it should not leak but with time will get worse. Only way to remedy it would be to pull it up and put new adhesive down if it doesn't pull up the luon as you pull it away, in that case you would need to get a new sheet of epdm and put down a new roof. It isn't that bad of a job to do but once you open the can of worms you might see rot on the roof that needs fixing. This is my old camper I had to redo the roof on to give you an idea: https://imgur.com/a/RriBM

RE: ATV Muffler on Genset?

From what I remember putting a resonator or a muffler on the exhaust adds backpressure which adds heat and load to the engine which Onan says is not a wise thing to do on the 2500 series.

You finally empty the black tank :)

RE: Trying to beat the rain... Air Up.. Best of the best

Try having six tires to air back up to 80 :D

RE: Trying to beat the rain... Air Up.. Best of the best

You ran the pump station out of air :)
