RE: Arctic Fox 990 or 992 or Lance 1050s?!?!?

That 1050s is going to be over 4000 loaded Still a lot lighter than what the AF's would be loaded. I bet those AF's would be pushing 5000.

RE: Arctic Fox 990 or 992 or Lance 1050s?!?!?

If you have to keep your truck and those 3 campers are the only ones you would consider then go with the Lance because it is much lighter than the Arctic Foxes. If it were me, with your truck I would be looking at non slide 8 footers.

RE: Arizona Charlies,Las Vegas

just go to Circus Circus..KOA Circus Circus while just a asphalt parking lot for RV's is your best bet for staying in Vegas. It is on "The Strip" and they allow you to remove your TC.

RE: Torklift Tiedowns

Any one using Torklift tie downs on a 2014 Ford Dually with 8' bed. Torklift is unable to verify fitment yet as they have NOT had this truck in their shop. Call torklift central in Kent , WA. Google Web site for phone number. Ask for Jonny or Dan. They might know. LOL

RE: Torklift Stable Load Question

On my Ford I used the frames. They are used to help the base of the Stable Load sit square on the curved mount for the overload pad mount.

RE: Disappointed in my new Lance

New cars come with a 3 year warranty. Why shouldn't campers offer the same? Auto manufacturers are forced to offer a minimum 3 year warranty by law. Before this they only offered a year.

RE: Lance 1052

The 1052 can be carried on a 3500 HD SRW truck safely and that's what Lance also recommends as a min. The COG is 48" and the heavy builtin items, 45 gallon FW tank, and about all storage areas inside the TC are forward of the DW COG point which is directly above the truck's rear wheels and that's an excellent design. That means most loaded cargo/liquid will share it's weight on the truck's front axles also instead of so much being behind thhe rear axle adding so much on the rear axle/tires. This allows the NEW porch/storage optional bumper's 149 lbs to have minimal effect on the COG of the 3400+ lb TC. Common sense needs to be used in loading weighty items in the NEW porch/storage bumper if carried on a 3500 SRW truck even if the NEW bumper is rated for 600 lbs carrying capacity. No problem if on a 3500 DRW truck though! The Lance 1191 model is a large TC and allows access to everything needed to be used with a slide in but it requires a 3500 DRW truck min which many truck/TC owners do NOT want. Perhaps, unless their truck is dedicated for the TC on only use and is what we feel also and hear constantly from fellow TC'ers. DRW's can be a REAL PIA around town etc as we know having This really requires a DRW vehicle. From the TCM article: "The 2014 Lance 1052 is a hard-side, dry bath, double-slide truck camper for long bed trucks. The interior floor length of the Lance 1052 is 10'11” and the interior height is 6'9". Lance is reporting the dry weight of the Lance 1052 at 3,420 pounds without options and 3,987 pounds with standard build features; Ultra Deck Plus bumper, air conditioner, generator, convenience package, awning package, four season package, and roof rack." At 4,000 lb dry weight before adding batteries, water, propane and stuff pushes it pretty firmly into DRW territory. Technically, if you had one battery, 10 lbs of propane, no water and no stuff you might be able to make it on a SRW but that is not really using a truck camper as a truck camper. I agree. Most people will buy this camper with most options. Fully loaded and wet it will pushing close to 5000 lbs. Nowhere near SRW territory. But Lance will probably recommend it for a 3/4 ton truck.

RE: Shocks

I had Bilstein 5100's and they had a meltdown after only 8 miles of a wash boarded road. They were good on pavement. I switched to Ranchos and they handle the camper much better than the Bilstiens.

Post this in the Lance owners forum. Lance seems to be getting more active on there.

RE: Step 1: Get the truck

Mine does have a rather slow response to kick down when I mash the throttle at freeway speeds. Although flooring it at a dead stop and you're up to 60 right now.

RE: Step 1: Get the truck

My test drive was dissapointing in that there was a significant lag between pushing the accelerator and the truck actually moving. Kind of like the turbo lag in the early turbo engines. Is this normal? Is it because the truck was empty? I know that there is lots of reserve power in the 6.2L but I drive an extended cargo van with a 4.8L gas engine carrying probably 2,000lbs of stuff that is lots zippier than this truck was. When I was on the freeway doinbg maybe 40MPG and punched it, it was scarry how slow it was to respond. Perhaps I should find another 6.2L to test drive? Seems zippy enough driving it around empty, but there's no comparison with my Audi A4 that's my daily driver :-). There was some discussion about this on the Ford Enthusiast Forum. I know the auto transmission "learns" your driving style and responds accordingly. You can reset it and have it relearn apparently, although I never tried it. Also, the F250 and F350 have different HP/Torque numbers so they are obviously tuned differently. They use the same identical engine. Horsepower and torque numbers are taken at a lower RPM for the one ton vs. 3/4 ton trucks. We did the same thing. I bought the truck first then waited a year or so to buy our Lance. Could not afford to take a hit on both at the same time. It was a lonnnng year of waiting!

RE: Glacier NP to San Diego Advice

Thank you guys. We have 8 to 9 days to make this last stretch home. I would like to spend as much time as I can seeing Montana and Idaho as I don't know when we will ever get this far North again. We are saving Yellowstone for another time as I feel that is a destination spot and not a drive through and quick see. I like the idea of staying off the 15 and will do just that. Love scenic drives and small towns. Google maps has me going south on the West side of Glacier, is it better heading south on the east side?
