I've had mine shift. 3/4" stall mat and fastguns tightened as per manufacturer. I think it's just gonna vary depending on the bump size and speed you take it at. Don't think I've had it move on pavement. But on forest service or logging roads, anything is possible.

Also, to ad to my previous question, do those that use guilds find they rub the finish off your bottom/sides of the TC?

We take our truck with the Hallmark popup off road, not hard core four wheeling but rough steep roads. I screwed some ¾ x 8” boards on the sides to fill the gap between the wheel wells and the issue with the camper shifting around was solved.
