RE: I like the Anza Borrego

maybe he did Garcia,at least when you put it in 4wd,you knew it was in 4wd It is neat to go to a place that is the same after 52 years went to Pegleg monument and split mountain http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/C609DEB4-4370-420B-B227-68CD049CC926_zpsh9b7hfnz.jpg height=600 http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/ECB9FCC6-B663-4B9D-AF59-D105CA2F5CDA_zpsu0zh5m10.jpg height=600

RE: MH or TC - Which is better to get into the Boonies?

Didn't see many class Cs last time I was in the boonies at Anza Borrego,unless they where towing a jeep and at a camping area. http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/9CA8A14C-8B92-4649-AB3F-A9F5103DA267_zpsznzhzeh6.jpg height=600

filling propane tanks in camper?

A recent article in Mellow Mikes blog told about a bad problem that occurred while filling propane without removing them from a truck camper.I have always removed the tank. is this happening a lot? I think it is dangerous and the propane dealer should know better.I am not talking about the special horiz tanks but the standard 20lb tank.

RE: Pop Up PU Camper tent material

We bought a used Starcraft pop up pickup camper . I have noticed several times after I have raised the roof and the material spreads out , where it attaches to the roof part, the material comes loose from the groove that is suppose to hold it in .The material works it way out of the groove in some areas. All I have to do is work it back into the grove and it is back in place until next time . My question is this , is this material held in place by a clamping procedure or what? Have you ever had experience with this and if so how did you repair the problem Thanks in advance . Life is Good I had this problem on my Palomino,but it was made worse by the poor QC and strip of wood that held the grove was crooked and one of the screws came out and left a 1/4 inch gap in the right corner. repaired it once and now have to tear into it again.These things happen usually after warranty up.

RE: How tough is it to climb into the bed area

We are considering changing our camping style and moving from our current 5th wheel to a truck camper. My wife is 5' 1" with two artificial knees and is concerned about climbing into the bed area. We have plans in a couple of weeks to actually get to a dealer and investigate but thought those here might have a comment. This issue is important as you get older and have to get up during the night I guess your talking about getting in the bed.I have been thinking of upgrading to a small class C,but have not done so because I like to visit the boonies in Ariz and Anza Borrego and need the 4x4

RE: How does a truck camper fit into a truck bed?

Sir, at the rear, you have it attached to the bumper? Where is it attached at the front? Do all TC's use 4 tie downs like that, and attached to the outside of the truck somewhere? My truck has four of these, one in each corner of the bed... http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/391028036299-0-1/s-l1000.jpg height=300 width=300 Can I tie to these somehow? So, I guess a 6.5' TC would fit in a 5.5' truck bed. I like torklifts tie downs. the fronts are bolted to the frame The rear bumper on the F250 is heavy enough for the cheaper HJs I replaced the front HJs because one broke I would not tie down the camper to the bed Do you remove the tailgate simply to save weight? Do you have to remove it? No,it is just better I still4x4 and tailgate is not needed Thanks to all for replies.

RE: Can any of you help me evaluate price on used pop-up TC?

Sir, when you say 'lifting mechanism,' do you mean the jacks that allow you to store it off the truck? No in a pop up somehow the top gets lifted up.In my camper its an electic lift in my older one it was a manual crank up which when you get older is a real PIA.

RE: How does a truck camper fit into a truck bed?

Sorry for the ignorance. How does a truck camper 'work?' Say a TC's length is 6.5' and a truck bed is 5.5'. Obviously, the tailgate cannot be up. Do you remove the tailgate or just lay it down? If you do remove it, why? Will a 6.5' TC fit into a 5.5' bed? Secondly, how do you 'tie down' a TC? Whatever it takes, does that come with the TC or do you have to buy something? Is there any electrical wiring that needs to be hooked up to the truck? They don't have brake lights on them, just reflectors, right? Thanks! http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile Uploads/8ED0F618-30C1-4329-BFED-A963EF72826D_zpsksbafbdq.jpg height=600 This is a pic of my 8 ft Palomino on a 6ft9in Ford F250 Yes you need tie downs The tailgate is off You need the 7 pin plug in for running lights and to charge the batt and the return ground

RE: Can any of you help me evaluate price on used pop-up TC?

usually I don't respond when the OP doesn't give any details on used pop ups its whatever the market will bear.Make sure the lifting mechanism works and check for leaks.I have had pop ups for 4 years and gave up comfort for off road camping. if I didn't like boony camping I wouldn't have a pop up
