Is this the correct way to measure? I did not add that rear bump out area to the 48", as it shouldnt interfere with the wheel wheels.
Nice camper, correct but the bump out would be good number to pass on as its at tail gate (on a long bed) to check against tail gate opening width. Also height from underside of nose/overhang to bottom of camper where it would sit on floor-our 01 Ford has a fairly tall cab, pretty sure Id need a platform for it.
The bed measurments your giving are good for checking against truck- but measuring INSIDE floor length would be actual camper size. Id also vote intended for long bed.
I think supplying numbers for folks to check is a good thing-but in no way would I assume responsibility for the truck someone might buy as a result of suppling them.
Hornet made a 9'6 and a 10' version in 1987 according to NADA. To determine which, measure from the inside of the under cab window to the inside of the rear door.
The measurement along the side is correct to determine bed length. 101" is the correct length for a long bed truck. This gives a couple of extra inches to clear the truck's tail lights since they protrude past the truck bed.
When giving dimensions to a potential buyer, always mention they need to confirm the dimensions to be sure.
recycler - I think your camper is the same model as the one I grew up camping with. 5 of us in the camper was a lot of fun.
