RE: Getting the truck ready?

My 2 cents, Don't just limit yourself to torklifts, I had a member on another site give me his Happyjac setup when he got a new truck, I just had to pay shipping (which wasn't exactly cheap, but saved them from the trash). I had torklifts I got used off of CL on my previous f250 and they did well, so either will work.

RE: Opinion on these tie-downs?

If you will be going out on the beach as I suspect these were, I would clean them up buy a new safety pin and roll with them, you have spent enough money on this project I am sure some savings would be a benefit. Btw, nothing wrong with using HJ with these or torklift, I had chains on my torklifts using the same ones.

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

Also, one thing to note if you have "crappyjacks" they may not come back up! (under power) Hence why having a deep well socket ground out to fit the jack and a drill is a must have tool to keep in the camper.

RE: Opinion on these tie-downs?

Clean em up and get new safety pins and roll out.

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

I drop the rear jacks anytime I stop to camp, it helps quite a bit to eliminate the rocking from the everyone walking around. Takes what, two minutes to drop them, worth it in my book.

RE: Anybody Know what this is?

Black tank flush?

RE: Proper generator for Lance 851?

I would invest the money into solar on the roof instead. Buy a Honda clone generator for the times when you need the extra power.

RE: New Shock Time

The Rancho 9000 is a THICK shock with plenty of rebound power when under heavy loads from our TC's. I have them set to 9 on the back and 5 on the front and I can verify 100% they eliminated the porpoising issue I was having especially on concrete highways. Now to be fair I have not put on the Bilstiens and tried them to see if they would do the same, I am perfectly happy with the Rancho's.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

The scout TC with a pop top will sleep 4-6. I can believe 4, maybe 5 with the upstairs, but 6 I am not so sure about. It does not have a bathroom or any of the amenities a typical TC has, it looks cool and the price is good if you are bringing your own cassette toilet and like to cook outdoors with the bugs.

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?

You could go the EarthRoamer route: https://earthroamer.com/hd/

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

Find a Lance 1191 with rear tent option or Host has the rear tent option as well. http://www.eastendcampers.com/images/tent_passenger.jpg

RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

MD is a front plate state, I just moved it to the side.

RE: Truck Camper for chassis cab announced.

Looks like it will still need a Tag Axle ;)

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

You might have to buy it in a bigger bottle or more smaller ones in a case but I have found distribution companies have plenty of hand sanitizer if they allow walk in sales.

RE: Tie downs

For back road slow travels to get a camper home ratchet straps can be a temporary solution if you are not traveling far. The next step up is brophy turnbuckles, but still not a great option for newer trucks with light truck beds. The best is either happyjac or torklift for safety.

RE: First TC Rally

I would like to know if the tag axle camper did the Bradshaw Trail?

RE: Over weight? Does it bother you?

It bothered me enough to upgrade to a DRW for mine. Now I can enjoy the ride. I also have kids and a wife with me, if it was just me it might be different.

RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

This is pics of mine on my old 250 and now on the 350, I am guessing it is close to yours. I need to put turnbuckles on it so it doesn't rock so much, I have them on my work bench just never took the time to put hooks on the front hitch rod holder. http://i.imgur.com/LrHRm1q.jpg http://i.imgur.com/KeCBxrP.jpg

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

On my 250 the lower worked good, on my 350 the upper worked good, depends on the setup. For you I would wait and see how it rides first, the uppers are easy to install after the fact if needed.
