Off, especially if you are near your weight limit. That 70 to 100 lbs can make all the difference.
Also if you leave it down it can get damaged with pebbles etc of a rough road.


If the weight of the tailgate is an issue, one has bigger problems.
In the 1000s of miles or 10000s of miles I’ve traveled with a tailgate down, camper or no camper, I have yet to sustain any tailgate damage, chips or dings while it was down. This is also not generally an issue.
However, if the OP doesn’t have a tailgate, it is a question of whether one is necessary or not and it’s not, with that camper or most all others possibly all others.
