How many have had Thanksgiving in a truck camper?

How many have had thanksgiving in a truck camper including cooking the meal? I have in a 10ft TC on a 3/4 ton Ford with the wife/kid and a dog..Went fishing at a mountain lake called Lost lake, then went down to the Salmon river for thanksgiving out of the snow..We cooked a big chicken because the oven was to small for a turkey..Stuffing and all the goodies..Twas a bunch of fun watching the jet boats tackle the rapids.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

I used to race snow machines back when the free air was the machine to beat..LOL..Just sold my last one,last year and I can say,I sure would not want to stick that unit with or without the truck camper..A winch would be a must and even that wouldn't help in alot of cases..Just sticking a snowmobile is a terrible experience sometimes.. Just like truck campers on a pickup,the weight can be your friend or your worse enemy in snow..

RE: Leg supports for truck camper storage

I set my truck camper on cinder blocks,three stacked on each corner with a 2X6 across each end..Wind and heavy snow hasn't bothered it at all and I'm in and out of it often..

RE: TC Horizontal LP Cylinders

I would think yours would have a label, or possibly stamped in the top ring what the filling orientation is. The relief screw could have its own dip tube that is intended to show an 80% fill when the cylinder is vertical. :):) I went back out and looked and you are 100% correct. That's funny because my propane guy(The manager) wasn't sure and he looked on the tank also..LOL

RE: TC Horizontal LP Cylinders

Not knowing what to expect,I cleaned up and painted my horizontal tanks so they would be ready for recertifying..The propane guy looked them over and put a new certification on them..Mine are pre-1998(if that's the year) and fell into the grandpa clause..I had it in the back of my mind I would have to get new tanks but luckily I did not.

RE: 1993 Lance 480 Truck Camper Roof Rack

I took mine off last year because it made for a big swimming pool with the cover on..Not quite sure what your asking....

RE: I got my new gas light.

Yup,there are a few here who are confusing the indoor approved gas lights to a Coleman lantern..Does anyone think that major camper manufacturers would put in something that spelled law suit all over it,like propane lights if they were not approved for there use? My last one was in an 18ft Ideal travel trailer I was living in full time(McCall Idaho) at the time..My wife and I took it way back in the hills for our honeymoon in July where it got down in the low 30's in the mornings..Get up and put the coffee on the stove and start up the propane light and it was nice and cozy in a few minutes.. Like catalytic heaters,crack a couple windows and you will never have an issue..

RE: 1988 coachmen truck camper

I drove over 200 miles to get my 1990(Lance 9.6) barn find..It has never leaked to date and I have had it on some really rough roads..My lance 9.6 weighs 2679 pounds and it is fully self contained,some of the older models are not fully self contained,only partial. Truck campers are totally over price these days so it will depend on the seller,if he is old school,you can get a reasonable deal,if he is the new breed,expect him to call it a classic and charge accordingly.. My last lance 8.6(1992) pictured below,cost me $2500 cash,as an example,fully self contained.. https://i.imgur.com/5P0OI9G.jpg height=440 width=640

RE: I got my new gas light.

Where a gravity furnace could work in a RV, not use electricity it would burn more propane, unless it was below floor level. A wall mounted unit would put heat high in the room, to pool at ceiling. With nothing to circulate it would take a lot of heat to get that pool down to knees. The fan blower reverses the natural flow in the furnace, so the natural flow in the room helps to heat it.Plenty of apartments use a vented convection heater on the wall and nobody is getting cold knees for it. Exactly,we had one in a house when we first bought it..Worked okay just like the gravity furnace did in several truck campers and travel trailers..Those of us that have actually used them in cold temps,actually liked them and the lack of electricity needed...

RE: I got my new gas light.

These lights are quite popular in Amish communities also.. Humphrey Gas Light This incredible indoor propane gas light mounts on the wall of your home or cabin. The Light comes with a pre-formed or tie-on mantle. The Humphrey Gas light is equal to a 70 watt light bulb and runs on either propane or butane. Costs pennies per hour to operate. Humphrey gas lights can be used with natural gas or butane with the purchase of the appropriate nozzle. Safety certified by the Canadian Gas Association Air intake is factory pre-set. Made in the USA. Humphrey Indoor Gas Lights Indoor Gas Lights are an excellent alternative to electric lighting. Interior gas lights are easily installed in cabins, homes, fish shacks, and RV's. Millions of people have chosen gas lights as their answer to off-grid living

RE: I got my new gas light.

OMG...Now 12 more pages on the correct meaning of forced air..I explained it correctly but labeled it wrong,evidently..(laffin)

RE: I got my new gas light.

I thought blower was involved in the definition of forced air furnace? They used to have just a furnace without a blower that forced air out, kinda like a catalytic heater,that had no blower or electricity involved..The thermostat was numbers on the dial..LOL..When the number on the dial reached it's temperature,it went to just the pilot until it needed more heat... The older campers had the propane lights/hand water pump/forced air furnaces(without blowers) etc because most only had one battery and RVing was nothing like it is today.. Old school wasn't so bad and everyone lived that followed instructions,just as today..LOL

RE: I got my new gas light.

Those were in almost every camper made years ago...Can't tell you how many of the glass domes I have broke because I forgot to secure them for washbordy roads..lol..Nobody died that I know of from using them for many many years...I wish they were an option as well as the old hand water pump by the sink and the forced air furnace without a blower... Nice Specta...

RE: Winter tire recommendations

Any recommendations for winter tires and wheels for our 2019 Ram 3500 dually? We live an hour north of Montréal Quebec. Winter can get nasty. Mine is a dually just like yours..I had almost new AT3's on it when I bought it and in my opinion,they were terrible on snow and ice..First trip up on the hill with the TC on got squirrly and I immediately came back and had Les Schwab's sipe them..What a difference,now there not to bad at all on snow and ice. Mine are narrow(215/85/16) compared to other duallies and it does a great job on the snow/ice and 2WD..My next set of tires will most likely be Nokian..

RE: Winter tire recommendations

Nokian takes the winners spot in every test I have seen..

RE: New Lance 960 non slide..

It appears to be the same setup as there 1475 travel trailers only in a truck camper..

RE: Pure sine wave inverter suggestions?

I have been looking for the same...It's hard to overlook the GoWise and the Kinverch (Potek)1000W,both under $150..

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Cool Specta..I wish mine had one as well as a hand pump alternative for water..The old days had there perks in my opinion..Breaking the glass cover not included..lol..I also miss the forced air furnaces..No battery draw to speak of..
