RE: maybe add some heavy duty pressure treated lumber?

If anything you could just screw wood strips front to back to the bottom of the camper. If you leave space between each strip water can drain and air can get in to help things dry. If the strips of wood get water damage it will be easy to replace them.

RE: Cargo trailers with tongue extensions

^Truck is short and loaded with a camper. Looks like the right hitch offset from the pic. I didn't notice anyone saying it was wrong

RE: Cargo trailers with tongue extensions

I undertook this project for my cargo trailer. I asked a welding shop to make the tongue extendable so that I could eliminate the hitch extension. The result is a tongue that can be extended ~3ft to reach my hitch under the camper. All I have to do is pull a pin on the trailer, slide the tongue out the 3ft and then put the pin back in. Granted... This idea works only on campers like my Bigfoot where the bottom of the camper is flush with the bed of the truck. Other extended campers tend to have lower overhangs which would prevent this from working. I have been very happy with this setup and I have hundreds if not thousands of miles with it so far. If you have a trailer that you are going to be towing on a regular basis with the truck and camper combination, this is certainly worth considering if your setup allows for it. https://i.imgur.com/F2Gyew4l.jpg Interesting setup. I am surprised to see that your ball mount is set up in a rise position. Most trucks that I have noticed always have a drop ball mount. You must have a tall trailer.

RE: Introduction post

Welcome! Other then tie downs I would not make any changes to your truck. I would suggest if you have no experience with truck campers that you go out and find a cheap but decent used one to use for a while. The experience you get from that will help you decide what you may want in a new one.

RE: RAM 2500 V10 model year 2000

My last truck was a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 gas with the camper package. My real weight 2500 lb camper sat and rode just fine on it. With just us and the camper I was not even touching the overload springs. The 5.9 gas engine was a little under powered on big hills but fine otherwise. You should be good with the v10.

RE: Purchasing in a 55+ Community - AZ

Look into putting your property into a trust. There are lawyers and even some banks that specialize in this.
