RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

I like the idea of stepping up to 4500 or 5500 CC but I'm getting a GM product (I have a rewards credit card) and their 4500 is just too big for my little driveway and being a daily driver. It's the size of the old Top Kicks or Kodiak. I guess they call that a medium duty. At this point I'm going either CC or a regular pickup bed dually. Not messing with the bed delete as it just takes away too many packages and options from my build. I went and talked to the fleet sales manager at the local Chevy dealership and he mentioned something about not being able to deliver it to me without some sort of upfitter bed as it would be considered an "incomplete vehicle". So, not sure how that would work as the 2 upfitters I'm looking at are both in Oregon (I'm in Colorado).

RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

I am planning on a slide-in. I have not found a flat bed model TC that I like. I think the C&C gas has a 63.5 gallon total (front and rear) 2 tanks capacity. The regular Silverado 3500 HD is 36 gals, so a win for the C&C.

RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

A thing to be thinking about is width. A pickup dually has a wider rear axle than a cab & chassis dually. That’s so the inner dual stays where a single wheel would have been, and the pickup box fits without clearance issues with the inside tire against the inside wheelwells. A pickup dually will give you more space between the duals for your camper, without it having to be completely above the tires. Good point, thanks. I'm also worried that the C&C frame is higher off the ground than the pickup version and will further increase that top-heavy feeling when turning or cornering. Like someone else mentioned, I should reach out to SherpTek and see what they recommend.

Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

Hi, exploring the idea of putting a truck camper on a custom flatbed, something like a SherpTek so I can get more storage. I'll be ordering my 3500 DRW new but trying to decide on the standard 3500 dually with pick-up bed delete option or a 3500 cab and chassis DRW. Anyone have any opinion on this? Both have a GVWR of 14,000. Not sure if licensing, registering, and insuring a C&C presents some hurdles as it won't be for business but for personal use. I'm in Colorado. Thanks!
