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

RE: Front receiver

I purchased my front mount hitch from Curt. It bolts to the frame under the front and sits just below the air dam. Took about thirty minutes to install and I can still use of hooks. Also I like this because our bikes sit lower on the front of the truck and don't impede our view. X2 on Curt messed up on the cutout bought on amazon http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile Uploads/EBB832EC-255C-4D05-9F35-1064993A2A99_zpszwg7308w.jpg height=600 Mine sits flush with the air dam, didn't have to cut the dam. The only place I've grounded ours is at the local Burger King. I've learned to depart that parking lot at an angle. I flipped it so I wouldn't lose ground clearance,I still do some lite 4x4

RE: Installing load adj. shocks, 94 Burb

Did you cut the strap that holds the shock closed before you put them on? Just collapse the shock with your hands and wrap a small piece of cord around the top and bottom and put them on your truck. Must be strong turtle to compress the Monroe load leveler http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/0D9A7E4C-9A77-4EAE-89BA-C8935E670D71-4446-000011804C7E38B0.jpg height=600

RE: Grand Canyon star Party

Naio, I don't know if the previous years' images are available on the phone version of Google Earth. They are certainly on the full-size version, for laptops and desktops. But here is an embarrassing confession -- I don't really know how to use my cellphone. I can make calls, but that is about it. (I grew up in the days of rotary dial landlines, hard-wired to the wall. I can't get my rapidly-aging head around the notion that this little wafer in my pocket is really a computer.) Wow someone in my peer group remember party lines,after the Korean war our neighbor didn't have a phone and when her son would call us Mom would send me to get her so she wouldn't miss her sons call When we visited the grandparents,Dad would call person to person to himself. so they would know we got home safe
