RE: Truck camper overhang and spare tires

So now that I have this shiny new truck, I've been contemplating a shiny new camper to go with it - potentially one that is longer than my 6' 4" bed. But what I can't figure out is how to access the spare tire if the tailgate is down or the camper has an overhang. What is the secret? Don't need no stinkin tailgate Also don't worry about a flat,had 1 in 17 years of towing trailer and /or hauling camper http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/87784E87-4AD1-4481-A16B-BC72F7D6490F_zpsntij6ya5.jpg height=480 width=600

RE: Top 10 RV tools

You only need three things. If it moves and it shouldn't - Super Glue. If it doesn't move and it should - WD-40. If anything else goes wrong, that's what Good Sam Roadside Assistance is for. :) Seriously, if I tried to fix something, there's at least a 50-50 chance that I'd make it worse. I'm mechanically challenged and impatient. No glue this is correct http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/AC6A5354-80B7-41C1-9E17-A68F6FE6F2A9_zpsm2lvef99.jpg height=600 width=480 :):)

RE: 3/4 ton truck suggestions for 4x4 truck camping

Ford lists a rear axle rating of 6290lbs and MAX GVWR of 10K for an F250. The F350 SRW has a rear axle rating of 7190lbs and a GVWR of 10K-11.5K. Actually Fleet Fords body builders specs shows four different RAWR for the F350 SRW 6.2/6.7 line. 1. 6290 RAWR gas and diesel 2. 6730 RAWR gas and diesel 3. 7000 RAWR gas and diesel 4. and one 7180 RAWR for the 6.2 gas reg cab 4x4 truck only. The F250 has one 6290 RAWR for the reg cab 2wd gas truck only. All other F250 gas and diesel configurations come with the 6100 RAWR. https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas/topics/2016/16_SD_Pickups_SB_Updates.pdf. The F250 heavy service package uprates the the trucks suspension to the same specs as the F350 SRW truck. Th point here, as my other reply, was if moving up to a F350 SRW watch which GVWR package the truck is plated at .....if the trucks GVWR is important to you. While I agree people need to pay attention to what the trucks are rated at I believe you are confusing the spring rating with the rating of the axle. The link you provide lists only two AXLE ratings, F250 - 6200lbs F350 - 7200lbs While the numbers you quote are what I see listed for the spring packs. So no matter what spring package gets selected on an F250, it's rear axle isn't as strong as the F350's with the same spring rating. the ratings are based on the tires If you want a HD F250 get the 18 in tires Ford makes it confusing on the F250 because with 3 different spring packs and 2 different tire ratings the GVW stays the same at 10000lb

RE: 3/4 ton truck suggestions for 4x4 truck camping

I'd go with an F-350 instead of an F-250. Why? You get more GVWR with little or no increase in price. So think 1 ton truck. Well....yes and no. A couple of points. Some F350 SRW trucks have a 10000 GVWR just like a 10000 GVWR F250. We had one poster who came up with a 10k GVWR F350 SRW crew cab 4x4 6.7 diesel long wheelbase. The weight police convinced him he had to trade it in for the same truck with the 11200 GVWR sticker :R. And if the F250 comes with the heavy service package its the same as the F350 SRW truck. The newer gen 3/4 ton diesel trucks have up to 6500 RAWR and over 3000 lb rear axle payloads. Gassers even more. Those people were ill informed, as the 10k package on the F350 is simply a piece of paper with no actual changes being made to the vehicle's suspension. It is done to get around registration andor parking restrictions some localities have in place. I have never heard of an F250 that was rated at the same GVWR as the F350. Then go down to the nearest Ford dealer and look at the F350 work truck with 17 in tires that has a 10000 lb GVW

RE: Northstar 850SC on 2015 Ford F-150 truck

I did the F150 and pop up camper for 3 years I now have a nice F250 and it cost less than the F150 with the upgrades. Brakes on F250 so much better.

RE: 3/4 ton truck suggestions for 4x4 truck camping

Get the one you want,all the big three are good. I got a F250 with HD springs,since in Ariz trucks over 10000 GVW must have commercial tags. http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/87784E87-4AD1-4481-A16B-BC72F7D6490F_zpsbozkjy5b.jpg height=480 width=600

RE: F-250/F-350?

Which ever one you get make sure it has 18 inch tires and the camper package You will like the 6sp trans.If you want gas engine and cant find camper pac get the sno plow pac in the F250.This gives you the F350springs minus the upper overloads
