RE: Happijac bumper tie downs

I had the same problem when I went from a F150 to F250. I bought new TL for the front with fastguns and used the HJ buttons on the back that were on the F150. both are mounted to the frame,not to the bed.

RE: Palomino Backpack SS1240

I have a SS 550 and love it. X2 on sucking in the sides but still doesn't hurt to do a walk around and make sure all the canvas is tucked in. Pins installed on each of the corner buckles will make sure the top doesn't unlatch itself during travel. How do you do this,the power fan is over the bed and cant be used after top is down? Also the first time I raised the top,there was a 3/8 gap on the right front,fron inside camper,felt wind and had to take off the cover that covers the front. pulled out one of the screws. fixed myself when I got home. I like my palomino but QC is really bad.

RE: Yuma to Apache Junction

Take I10 to Gila Bend then take 238 to Maricopa then 347 to I 10 then to 202 to 60 and 60 to Apache Junction X2....This is the way I go back and forth. I bet you take I8 as I10 is not any where near Yuma or Gila Bend

RE: Proper sized camper for Ram 1500 Ecodiesel

http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/EB7F6E05-7EF0-4D23-AFFE-9CA7089D7E1B_zpslpbdqwn4.jpg height=600 forget the Palomino pop up,had the 7 ft Bronco on my F150,was 600-700 lbs over wigh me and all the stuff for camping.Ended up with a F250 when the brakes started to fade So over the last few years I've been trying to add a bit more camping into my UTV/V-Strom adventures. So far I've relied on truck tents. I know these are not very popular but they have served me well. The amount I've been able to get out I feel I can finally justify stepping up to a slid in camper. I've been keeping an eye open for a good used camper locally over the last two years. Everything that I looked at was either peer junk or sold before I could even look at it. I'm getting tired of playing this game. So I'm considering going new and need some advice fitting one to my Ram 1500 Ecodiesel. Requirements/issues As I will be towing one or both of my toys. Need a camper that will fit with the tailgate up or tailgate off. While still allowing adequate clearace to trailer. Truck has 6' 4" bed. Weight. Ratings on my Eco is pretty poor vs a Hemi with the added engine weight. I will be running it across a CAT scale in the next few day's to get specific numbers. Budget: 10-15K max. Current options I've been looking at: Travel Lite 625 & RAYZR FK (625 minus cab over), Palomino SS-550. Pro's and cons? Are there any other options I should be looking at?

RE: Posting Photos from Photobucket

http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/AC3659ED-1965-44CF-88B8-BD3EB687C0A0_zpsionkkwqt.jpg height=600I have had the problem for about 2 wks The kicker is that old posts,older pics, work fine but new ones do not Can we assume that you read through this thread and know that the problem is with certain Open Road Forum portals and/or servers. The problem affects some pictures stored on Photobucket.com. In particular, it affects those pictures that have spaces in their titles. A symptom on the forum side is the inability for the message window to handle a % symbol. On the Photobucket.com side, the issue is replacing spaces with the an ascii code, %20 The forum's display engine does not have problems processing the % symbol. As mentioned earlier in the thread, you can post pictures with spaces in the title by using the Woodall's portal. I used html character codes to display the % symbol. Quoting this post could cause problem in a repost. Tom you are correct worked on Woodalls
