RE: New owner to a early 80's slide in

I had to redo the roof on an older shadow cruiser, not much to the roofs other than Styrofoam and 1/8" plywood and a 1/8" ceiling board. I actually deleted some wiring and installed battery powered lights, less holes. Here is a link to my install:

RE: Anyone ever try the Traction pads for a Truck Camper

I got THESE back in 2015 and they have worked great, use them in the sand if I need help getting out of a rut. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another set.

RE: Why aren't Truck Campers popular in W. Pa.?

If you hadn't in the past you should get your OSV pass and spend a night or two out on the beach now that you have a TC again. Skip the Frontier town craziness.

RE: Why aren't Truck Campers popular in W. Pa.?

Congrats on the TC! You will have to come back to Assateague again this summer and give the 4x4 a workout and do some surf fishing, it is pretty much Lance country around here.

RE: Seat belts in a camper?

Does your 350 have the manual zf6 or automatic? I know I would miss that storage in the center console but you gotta do what you gotta do. My kids are 8 and 11 and I now have fun camping with them somewhat, can't imagine getting that news, more power to the wife for not wanting to hunker down.

RE: Onan Cummins Propane Generator

You want to run it to exercise the brushes and charging on it, not just the engine. Important to run it under load so flip the AC on or turn on the microwave, something to put the the generator under load, its one of those use it or loose it kinda deals.

RE: Ideas from those of you who built your own hold downs

Build a belly bar for the front and put screw eyes in the rear bumper (happijac), beef up the bumper first.

RE: 4500/450 Chassis Cab

I can assure you 100% you won't get very far on 19.5's on our sand, might not even make it 100 feet past the gate without airing down.

RE: 4500/450 Chassis Cab

That is the reason why I went with an f350 vs an f450 for my 1191, so I can have tires on my DRW that I can air down for the soft sand we have here. Would love to have gotten the 450 for the upgraded parts but converting the tires was going to be a hassle. @dennych1 what TC are you hauling?

RE: Hellwig Big Wig Rear Swaybar vs Torklift StableLoads (Lower)

Sway bar, also check out roadmaster bars, sometimes its an easier install depending on the truck.

RE: Lance 1010 cabover strut

Try it without it to see if you can deal with seeing your camper move up and down, it doesn't bother me and I take mine offroad.

RE: Eagle cap 1160 & Lance 1172 owners....

I travel with 2 kids and the 1191 fills the need, might even be able to find one with the rear tent option if you do summer camping only.

RE: Sleepy Checking in!

Sleepy, how is the solar working? I believe you have the same HPV-22B system as me, don't see many of them, mine is still working good.

RE: Tryin to talk the wife into a newer

Reminds me of my 1191 minus the slide.

RE: Overland camper

Most of us have seen them and gawked but out of our price zone. They power everything with diesel so you really are setup for backwoods camping.

RE: Solar panel!Av3MLjR7Oj5kj9cf3KUPDTLPj--h4g I really hate that you can't attach files, but that is a link to see the solar on top of my 1191. Used superstruts.

RE: Rubber roof confusion

I don't think you will like that decision in another year, I would just pull it all up and put down new on the whole roof, even if you are looking at having it 5 years it will help with resale as well.

RE: Rubber roof confusion

My old Shadow Cruiser came with EPDM so that is what I put back down. Here is my old thread on fixing mine:

RE: SUP / surfboard / gear rack ideas

I put my surfboards inside while traveling. I am building a holder for them for the side of the truck while I am on the beach. Something like this: My roof racks are already full of solar panels :)
