I kinda wish I had gone with that 3/8 mat instead of the 3/4 horse mat I bought..I was worried about clearance for my clearance lights on the cab..The horse mat is kinda a pain and very awkward to handle so I cut it in half making it easier to handle..

The truck camper you get will dictate how much height you will need for the TC to be clear of the rails and roof of your truck.

Northern Lite recommends a 3/8" thick mat for their campers. However, late model Ford HD's require an additional 1-2" of foam/plywood/horsemat to obtain the necessary truck cab/cabover clearance with a NL.

That’s the mat I have in my F350 but I also had to buy the 2” Foam Board to clear the Waste Water Drain Line from hitting the Rear Bumper.

Do I need anything to hold it in place? Seems like it would be heavy enough but.....

Thanks,

And what mat are you talking about?
I tested my Ford mat at governed speed just fine.
It is shaped around wheel wells, what holds it from sliding, while weight keeps it down in the vortex behind the cabin. (it sucks when you can push the governor on 4th gear, still having 2 gears to spare)
