RE: Proper generator for Lance 851?

I would invest the money into solar on the roof instead. Buy a Honda clone generator for the times when you need the extra power.

RE: New Shock Time

The Rancho 9000 is a THICK shock with plenty of rebound power when under heavy loads from our TC's. I have them set to 9 on the back and 5 on the front and I can verify 100% they eliminated the porpoising issue I was having especially on concrete highways. Now to be fair I have not put on the Bilstiens and tried them to see if they would do the same, I am perfectly happy with the Rancho's.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

The scout TC with a pop top will sleep 4-6. I can believe 4, maybe 5 with the upstairs, but 6 I am not so sure about. It does not have a bathroom or any of the amenities a typical TC has, it looks cool and the price is good if you are bringing your own cassette toilet and like to cook outdoors with the bugs.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

I have a 12 and a 9 year old, even in the 1191 since they love to fight one sleeps on the floor and they switch places the next night. We are always converting the dinette into a bed and it works good, but still not great for grown adults, let alone two. I honestly don't know how big the rear tent option is since I have never seen one in person, I know they do have heat and air ducts to it and I think you can seal it up so it can be doable into late fall, not sure how well it would do during winter. My other suggestion would be pull a teardrop camper behind the TC?

You could go the EarthRoamer route: https://earthroamer.com/hd/

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

Find a Lance 1191 with rear tent option or Host has the rear tent option as well. http://www.eastendcampers.com/images/tent_passenger.jpg

RE: Truck Camper for chassis cab announced.

Looks like it will still need a Tag Axle ;)

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

You might have to buy it in a bigger bottle or more smaller ones in a case but I have found distribution companies have plenty of hand sanitizer if they allow walk in sales.

RE: Tie downs

For back road slow travels to get a camper home ratchet straps can be a temporary solution if you are not traveling far. The next step up is brophy turnbuckles, but still not a great option for newer trucks with light truck beds. The best is either happyjac or torklift for safety.

RE: First TC Rally

I would like to know if the tag axle camper did the Bradshaw Trail?

RE: Over weight? Does it bother you?

It bothered me enough to upgrade to a DRW for mine. Now I can enjoy the ride. I also have kids and a wife with me, if it was just me it might be different.

RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

This is pics of mine on my old 250 and now on the 350, I am guessing it is close to yours. I need to put turnbuckles on it so it doesn't rock so much, I have them on my work bench just never took the time to put hooks on the front hitch rod holder. http://i.imgur.com/LrHRm1q.jpg http://i.imgur.com/KeCBxrP.jpg

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

On my 250 the lower worked good, on my 350 the upper worked good, depends on the setup. For you I would wait and see how it rides first, the uppers are easy to install after the fact if needed.

RE: Truck Camper with Built in Genset?

There is something about rolling out of bed in your underwear and hitting that generator switch to make coffee in the morning while out in the middle of no where scratching my butt and admiring nature.

RE: Your favorite features.

I love watching the solar controller feed me with free power during the day.

RE: Leveler blocks used as recovery boards

I have seen recovery boards shoot out from under a tire, was glad I was not behind it, needs some grip on the bottom and the top.

RE: My Folding Porch

RE: My Folding Porch

I like that idea of a folding porch, not see that before. It gets it out of the way while traveling. Looks like it blocks half the stop light/turn signal however, might be a liability in that sense. If you do any camping on the beach a porch is a much needed option, being able to get the sand off before entering the camper helps a lot with cleanup. Also on some designs its a great place to store your grill and wood. If you are older you can add a handrail to the steps and don't allow drunk ppl on your rig. I have seen some add LED lights around the porch so you can see it better at night.

RE: Rear Porch

Not really certain the feasibility of a “porch”. It would be extremely challenging to build something large enough to use that folds up and isn’t obtrusive. Having a porch is awesome, especially if you are at the beach and have a rear door camper. Not that hard to build one either, my friend bought an aluminium floating dock for jet skis and removed the floats and installed hinges to the back bumper of his 1181 and installed straps to the rear jacks for support, he can fold it up easily and roll out, he installed brake lights on the bottom of the porch so when it folds up he doesn't lose that.
