starcraft,

I bght a 1999 Caribou last fall. I'm trying to fig out the best way to set it up for safety etc etc. Like adding new shocks, sway bars, dual wheels etc.

I noticed you have single rear wheels. I'm debating converting to DRW.

Is your truck a 3/4-ton or a 1-ton?

My camper weighs ard 3300 not loaded. Is yours the same?

How does it handle with the single rear wheels? What upgrades, suspension , shocks etc did you do?

Here's a pic of mine..1988 GMC Crew Cab 1-ton.
