RE: Shake Down Fun

Very nice , I have similar setup . Have gotten so spoiled with the side storage I don't think I could do without it. Is your side storage weatherproof ? How did you make the connection between the side doors and the camper ? No, not weatherproof. However, drove for a full day in the rain across Utah and Nevada and not much water got in. We don't keep anything in there that would be damaged if it got wet. I will eventually get around to sealing it a little better, but it's a low priority at the moment. I added a piece of 1" aluminum angle to the underside of the camper. The latches are "T" handle and rotate to latch behind the angle. The camper does not move, so the doors stay latched.

RE: Titus canyon road Death Valley Here is a video I shot thru the narrows. I have taken a variety of vehicles thru Titus Canyon including a full size pickup (less camper). You will fit. The road thru the canyon is not too bad. Probably the worst is the approach from the Nevada side. Lots of washboard. The road is one way so no opposing traffic. Take your time and enjoy. There is a ghost town in the canyon with a colorful past. Google Leadfield, CA

RE: Shake Down Fun

Forgive me if I miss the obvious because I usually do. You removed the front jacks but left the rear. Is that so you could level better? Do you sag in the rear? Just curious, thanks and what a rig!!! The front jacks stuck out far enough to obstruct rear vision and hung low enough to get damage by a passing rock. The rear jacks sit a little inboard of the of the flatbed frame and are more protected. The rear jacks help with leveling and stability. The way it is set up we can handle a level 2 to 3 trail

RE: Shake Down Fun

Any issues with the tires rubbing? We just finished a 2500 mile shake down trip and found a little rubbing on one side. I'll put a little more air in the airbags. If that doesn't work, I'll cut out a section of the flat bed and deck it with some diamond plate.

Shake Down Fun

We had been planning on putting together a boondocking rig when a great deal on an 04 Eagle Cap came along. With it's aluminum frame it was just what we were looking for. We already had the 08 Silverado Duramax that we were no long using, so it seemed like the prime candidate for our conversion. I pulled the bed in March and started building the flatbed. We tried to buy a flatbed, but could not find one that suited our needs. Here's a shortened list of what we added. Air bags, Big Wig sway bars, Bilsteins, dually conversion, ac, 400 watts of solar, 4 six volt batteries, 30 gallon auxillary water tank, doors for the sides, and GlowSteps. There is a whole lot more but these are the major items.

Just finished building my flatbed setup. This is our maiden voyage from California to Colorado.
