RE: Rickson contact problem

I thought they closed up a couple of years ago. That leaves us I believe with only Vision's as far as 19.5's go.

RE: Levelling blocks for camper on driveway with 2 degree grade

Threaded rods against the grain !! Absolute genius !! Come spring I will be making my own.

RE: 19.5 Hankook DH35 vs XDS2

We have had our commercial Michelin’s now for 7 years. We got drive treads for the rear, but got steer treads for the front since they are quieter. We have about 70,000 kms on them now & they still have tons of tread. They will probably “time-age” out before they actually “wear” out. Expensive for sure, but the peace of mind is worth it while hauling a heavy camper (AF811) with a F350 SRW truck.

RE: Back to truck campers

HD sway bars are a good call, but I am not sure what you mean by “taking your bed with you”. With all of your previous RV’s you have always taken your bed, or beds,....with you. TC’s are no different in that way, except in some rigs you need to make it up each night & take it down in the morning. Not so with TC’s.

RE: Looking for recommendations on a two bike rack

For two bikes we went with mounting a Class 3 hitch on the front of the truck. Then used a cradle type rack where both wheels of the bikes sit in trays. I really like being able to keep an eye on them while driving. If there is an issue I will see it. Have been doing this about 4 years now without any problems. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/sportrack-crest-2-platform-hitch-bike-carrier-0401110p.html#plp

RE: Pop-up Truck Camper Peeps - question for you...

When we booked Fishing Bridge campground in Yellowstone the rep on the phone asked me three times if there was ANY canvas on our TC,...ie: was it a pop up? It wasn’t a pop up so he booked us in. We found out later that no tents or canvass was allowed in that particular campground because it was on a grizzly migration path. I can assure you our bbq was back in the truck before dark. It’s possible some campgrounds may reserve sites for tents so they at least have somewhere to set up. This doesn’t make sense though if an RV site is right next to a tent-only site.

RE: Ford F250 frame hold downs?

Not that I am aware of. I have Torklifts and I am pretty sure they are drill free mounting on our 2011 F350. They have held up well for 8 years now.

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch - tried searcing

If I had to do it all over again I would go under-mount gooseneck for sure. No bed to create for the camper, which also adds height.

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

Just an FYI on the dually side. We have an SRW but I found out that with a CAA RV membership and you call them regarding an issue with an inside rear tire they will not touch it. You would have to find someone else. I am not sure if AAA has the same policy or not but If I had a dually I would be checking with them.

RE: How am I going to re-attach this jack?

Image did not come through. We'll need more info too, like make & age of camper. Many here have dealt with what your going through.

RE: Tailgate support rack

X3 for me on leaving it at home & using a cargo net. I mostly use the net to make sure I don't lose my bed mat. It's a pain getting the tailgate off and on again & storing it but installing & using the cargo net is a breeze.

RE: Camper looks like its not level

I had the same issue & it was messing me up. 2011 F350 SRW crew cab, short box. I saw what you are seeing. Try this. Next time the camper is off, grab a 5 or 6 foot piece of straight hardwood. Place it across the top of the bedrails, right behind the back window. Measure to the truck bed. Then do the same thing slightly forward of the tailgate & see the difference in the measurement. Realizing that at least helped ME sleep better. For me it was an optical illusion for sure, but was caused by Ford.

RE: should I be using a stand when not in use

Our 2013 AF811 has spent all its 5-6 month winters on it’s jacks. On asphalt. No issues, and no other supports.

RE: Truck camper title?

Before we get any further ahead,..can we define TITLE ? So we are all on the same page.

RE: Fast Gun info?

We have the vintage with the looped handles. They are very handy. When gassing up I have to take the front one off to get access so instead of dropping it on the ground I just hang it from the loop on the handle on the rear Fastgun until I am finished with the pump. Also, when off the truck at a campground I started thinking if someone steals these I am in a hell of a mess. I use a lock for each pair to hang them from the loops on the campers tie-down bracket. This saves having to store them in the truck or camper. Two times I noticed that one of my Fastguns was swinging in the wind as I drove. It had disengaged at the bottom. Upon inspection when I took them apart there was an issue with two internal rod threads. Some were flat, just like you will find at the very bottom as the threading was finishing on the machine. Torklift immediately sent me two new internal rods. All good ever since. Great customer service.
