Good 3rd party Truck Camper insurance?

Good 3rd party Truck Camper insurance? Hi all - I had initially had good insurance coverage on our new 2020 Hallmark fiberglass pop-up Truck Camper - then Progressive decided that unless we had our auto insurance with Progressive, they would not insure our Truck camper, as it is too valuable. Not happy with Progressive! (I do not want to shift my auto insurance to them) So currently inquiring if our current auto insurer will write the insurance for our Hallmark….. and asking what the exclusions are… * * * But can anyone recommend good 3rd party RV insurance company? The Hallmark is quite valuable, of course. * * * We got the Progressive thru Good Sam - the nice thing about the insurance (that is about to be cancelled by Progressive) was that it was *replacement value* for the first 5 years in case of a write off, then it was *price paid* (for the Hallmark) for years 6 and on. That is very good coverage, and I’d like to try to get similar coverage. In other words, I dont want depreciated coverage, as in a total loss we’d get screwed, especially year 6 and on. :-( Thanks

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

much love for Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH? Hi all We have a 2020 F350 8 foot bed gasser, with the camper package (so an extra rear leaf spring) No extra rear leaf on F350 w/camper pkg. Here is 2020 Super Duty specs from Ford; https://www.ford.com/cmslibs/content/dam/brand_ford/en_us/brand/resources/general/pdf/guides/20Towing_Ford_SuperDutyPU_Oct15.pdf You will get a sway bar. Maybe you got an F250? No, I have a custom ordered F350. Ordered from Ford. I did specify the highest GVWR (and also 4x4) so perhaps one of those is what got me the extra rear spring? I am pretty confident it is there - the extra spring. regardless.... I now have the upper StableLoads, and the very top (short) spring is now touching the Upper Stable Load. With the camper on, the ride is amazing. Very happy, all in all. The StableLoad (uppers only) went on when the camper went in, so no idea how the ride would be camper only, no upper StableLoads.

RE: this 20 ton bottle jack? this air compressor?

When your tire goes flat, good luck with getting that bottle jack under the axle. Every one I've tried has been too tall - and if I managed to dig a hole deep enough to get the jack under the axle, then there was not enough lift with the jack to get the good tire on the truck. great point - I should measure axle to ground, and cross check any possible jack. thanks! :)

RE: this 20 ton bottle jack? this air compressor?

Update - someone pointed out that I’d need to jack up the truck/pop up truck camper combo from the axle, (?) so I’d need a * cradle * to do it safely. (?) Yes this kit is expensive, but it comes highly recommended by a number of people, as being very safe. I hope to be traveling and RVing for many many years to come, and safety is priceless to me. thoughts? Never mind the price. :-) They are currently 20% off, (back ordered 2 weeks) so the 20% off takes the sting out. and happy to support a small business. https://safejacks.com/collections/bottle-jack-accessories/products/safe-jack-bottle-jack-recovery-kit-with-bottle-jack Do I want to add the UNIVERSAL BOTTLE JACK BASE ? $40. Also I understand I should carry a basic jack stand with me, to put in place, after the corner is jacked up, to be extra safe. Any recommendations? Bonus points for an Amazon link (yes it will be weeks ‘till I get it) Thanks!

this 20 ton bottle jack? this air compressor?

this 20 ton bottle jack? this air compressor? Hi all - I have a F350 crew cab long bed gasser, with a pop up truck camper always on it, that is about 2,700 lbs wet. If I happen to get a flat tire… it is my understanding that the Ford OEM jack wont be appropriate to jack up the truck with the camper on it. Would this 20 ton bottle jack be good? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000234IT4 Anything else I need? also - novice question - any other tips for how to safely jack up the truck to swap a wheel? and secondly… I need an air compressor for blowing out the air lines in our pop up camper when I winterize it…. also on the chance that I need to air down the tires due to sand … I need a compressor to be able to air back up. They are 18” All Terrain Wranglers. LT 275 / 70R x 18 E VIAAIR have been recommended. Supposedly this is a good size for my tires. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000X9B32M Any thoughts on this model? Thanks :-)

RE: Did I forget anything? ordering a new Hallmark pop up camper

Did you get dual pane windows? After discussing this option with Matt,at Hallmark, I followed his advice and did not get them. He and the whole team at Hallmark are super experienced, and very honest and straight ahead. I trust them 100%. I did not get the dual pane windows, because: 1) we have the awesome Truma Combi water and air heater, and it is super efficient, and super quiet 2) the insulated snap in window covers make a HUGE difference over the single pane glass.... for keeping heat in / cold out / reducing any possible condensation (as per Hallmark) and in my 2 nights so far, in the Hallmark in 35 F and windy overnight... I agree with this 100% and only if I was going to super cold places like Alaska in winter would i even want to consider the dual pane windows. Matt said very few get the dual pane.

RE: Did I forget anything? ordering a new Hallmark pop up camper

Update: got our heavily customized Hallmark this past week. Bill, Andy, and Matt were just amazing on the install + orientation day. Super kind, thorough, and amazing to deal with. The fit and finish (and attention to detail) on the camper is spectacular. We have had a number of RVs previously and Hallmark is superb. Hallmark is clearly always working to make things better - it shows in the little details. They all use their own personal Hallmarks to camp in with their respective families - and it clearly shows. Highly recommended! J.

anyone running: Champion 2800W gas/propane inverter Gennie?

anyone running: Champion 2800W gas/propane inverter Gennie? Hi all I don’t like gas generators (don’t ask - long story) so was planning on buying a (roughly $1,100) Honda 2200 (the new model) then using the $265 Hutch Mountain New Honda EU2200i Propane, Natural Gas & Gasoline Generator TriFuel conversion Kit However the Honda 2200 seems to have a recall on it, and I can’t find them for sale at the usual places. Is anyone running the $899 Costco sold: Champion 2800W Running / 3100W Peak Gasoline or Propane Fuel Powered Digital Inverter Generator Costco advantage is that if I have a problem with it in the first 10 years I can walk into any Costco and say “this broke, i want a refund” … a pretty significant advantage. I read that it is not quite as quiet as the Honda 2200, however on a 100 foot extension cord at a campsite…. not much of an issue. I really don’t want a gas generator (it will hardly get used, and propane burns so cleanly, and I will always have propane with me in a spare tank, and gas goes stale after 6 months, and I don’t want to carry gas with us……) thus the desire for propane generator. Thanks.
