Beddows loved the Snowriver campers. He was very knowledgeable of truck campers.
I miss the conversations from the early 2000's. It was here I learned of the SR campers produced in british columbia. Sorry rryto hear he was banded. Barry

Beddows sold his SR TC and bought a TT. That trailer was in an accident and I do not know if/what replaced it. He failed to follow the rules of this forum often enough to be removed (which happens to very few). You will need to reach him through other forums or social media if you wish to contact him.

Billsnp5, how are you liking your host? How is your truck with your cascade? Is the Host as well made as your AF was. My Cascade is on order, not sure when it will be ready to camp in. Host is pretty backed up manufacturing wise. That's good news I think, as people will wait for quality. Hoping that is the case for the back log. Barry


So far we love it. The quality on our AF was good and the Host seems as good so far. The recliners are nice. They are not as comfortable as at home but large very comfortable recliners would take up to much space . I would suggest trying them out. We didn't try any of the other makes with recliners because of the weight difference between the Cascade and the other large truck campers with recliner options.
The new truck handles it just fine. The only thing for some reason Ram decided the 3500 didn't need a rear sway bar which seems so dumb. Waiting on Helwig to come out with one for it.

Ram doesn't put a stabilizer bar on any of its trucks except the 5500. Ford offers it as an option on the SRW and standard on the DRW. Not sure about GM's current setup.

I have an end of September estimated pick up of my cascade. I will be putting it on my 2006 f350 dually. This is my retirement truck, it has yet to turn 50000 miles on it. Barry

The main thing I'm looking for in my next camper is comfortable recliners. Doesn't need to be any particular manufacture. I do need to be comfortable with the build quality as I was when I bought my SR from five star rv in henderson colorado. Thanks for the replies, never easy making the final decision. Barry


Barry, if you are buying a camper for the recliners, I recommend that you spend some time sitting relaxing in them before you decide. Everyone's body is different, and the recliners are different shape and material. I was in your position with my Arctic Fox 1150. I loved the camper but wanted recliners. I looked at and sat in EVERY camper that offers recliners. I really liked the Cascade, (except for the bathroom door) but the recliner didn't work for me. The upholstery was slippery, and I felt like I was straining not to slide downward.
I finally settled on the Eagle Cap 1165, with the cloth upholstery on the recliners. I just melt into the chair - so relaxing. But everyone is different.


2018 Eagle Cap 1163 triple slide on a 93 Dodge D350 Cummins, DTT 89 torque converter, big turbo, 3 extra main leafs, Rancho 9000s rear, Monroe gas magnums front, upper overloads removed, home made stableloads, bags.

Thanks hemi joel, we sat in a cascade 2018's recliners. They were cloth and they sat very well for us. I don't think there is a perfect camper. The cascade is the first camper that I have seen and spent some time in that I'm willing to trade my snowriver for. We visited a 1165 about a year and a half ago, it was really nice but the dinnet didn't fit my wife and I unlike the SR we were use to. I tow a small boat and I tow my sxs, the cascade allows for a much shorter hitch. I really like the side entry campers, hard decisions, hoping the build quality is really good. That to me is the most important aspect of the new camper. Thank you for giving us your thoughts on the cascade. Barry
