RE: 1875# wet wt camper on dodge ram 1500?

The advertised weights can be very deceiving. My Lance 835 says 2200 loaded. The scales said 3000. Just be aware of that in your shopping, and good luck!!!

RE: Life expectancy of pickup campers...

Im glad someone finally put some reality to this. Its an RV, not a convertible classic. Roof and other leak prevention is a key for sure. I wax my 01 Lance once a year and it looks great. I recaulk as needed. This is like saying a house needs to be in a covered environment!

RE: RV Sayings

Some of you guys are just fricken hilarious!! But,,its all good words to live by. If anyone helps at all, double check everything again. Lost a trailer not heeding that advice.

RE: Pop-up lift options?

Had a Sunlite with an inside crank and loved that thing!! I still miss all the storage space under the bed.

RE: Air bag pressure question

Too much air makes a worse ride. The balance is to have weight on the overload springs, but not too high. Never adjust because of headlite aim or wanting the truck to look like it does empty. I have a 2500 with a Lance 835. It weighs 3000 lbs loaded at the scales. I usually run about 15 lbs and 20 - 25 with a boat or atv trailer in tow. I ran about 55 lbs and was bouncing all over the road. Of course, we all have somewhat different setups, but my point is try different pressures and hopefully you will find where you like it the most.

RE: Sometimes I feel like a "freak"...

Dave Pete, I like what you said. When I see giant rigs I smile to myself as i love my camper. There may be a bit of envy there, but I know how much trouble and maintenance some rigs take. I really wonder why weekend warriors need such big rigs? Do they basically live in them just like at home? I leave home to be outside as much as I can.

RE: F150 and a Camper

My lance 8.5 foot hardside weighed in at 3000 loaded and is a handfull for my 3/4 ton. I had a Sunlite popup on my 1/2 ton chev and it was a great fit, but maxed. How long is the one you are looking at? Really ,,,a 1/2 ton is scary with anything more than a light popup. If you could test drive the camper for a short way would give you an idea on handling.

RE: Where do you hang your garbage bag?

I use a mop bucket with grocery/Walmart plastic bags. That way i have a pail in case I need water quick for a fire, ect. When its full, I sneak to the next camper and throw them under it. ( A few shots of rum)

RE: Propane heater

I have used my heater SPARINGLY for several nights. Not during the day, and occasionally at nite. I ran a wire from the thermostat to a toggle switch in a cabinet next to the bed. that way i can turn the heat on when I go to bed and control it with thetoggle switch as we sleep instead of it being on all night. I have also used a Mr Buddy during the day and evening having a window vented slightly while awake.

RE: Black tank chemicals

Even though this doesnt answer the OP`s question, Im chiming in here. I can tell a huge difference in smell when I dont use chemicals. Maybe thats why he is asking his question. Telling him not to use them doesnt answer his specific question. Just sayin,,,,

RE: Black tank chemicals

The use of black tank chemicals has been discussed to death, just do a search. The OP didn't ask about whether or not to use chemicals, they asked how to add them with the slide in with some kind of external access to filling the black tank. I would just add them through the toilet the next time you open the slide before using the unit. Thanks for getting things back on track. So many times I have had responses that were absolutely useless to my question.

RE: new guy

I have a camper designed for a long bed Ford in my short bed Chevy and it works great. It doesnt have the outside storage boxes as it for a long bed, but used campers that fit short beds are hard to come by out here.

RE: Goodbye old friends

I really like your post!! Its a vehicle thing, kind of. I mourn the sale of my 72 Blazer, 95 Siverado,and many more. I miss my 74 Shasta trailer converted to haul dirt bikes. But,,,,,,,,,,,,new stuff is fun too!!!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!

RE: How often do you use your portable generator?

As I read your question,,, you cant run much of anything without a generator, as in Micro wave , AC. Are you going to have 120 volt plug in or not?

RE: Improving rear sag

I use airbags also, but for weight help, not to adjust the lights. Maybe the title is misleading, but filling to adjust lights would unweight the springs and basically rely on the bags for support vs the full suspension? I have tested this and definitely can tell when I have too much air in the bags because of the extra sway.

RE: Improving rear sag

I agree with adjusting the headlights. If the ride isnt the problem, then why mess with it? Adding stuff just to adjust the headlights may affect your ride quality,,,
