It's been awhile since my last posting and I just completed a series of White Rim Trail video from our journey in 2014. For those those who are considering doing this trail in your truck camper these videos will be of use to you. My rig is a 2007 Ford 4x4 hauling a 2002 Lance 815. What make this particular journey on the WRT special is the fact it was the first we were able to completely circumnavigate the trail after previous journeies ended up with mother Nature washing out the trail.

Allow yourself plenty of time to watch all 5 parts.

Thanks to all, c.traveler2

Thanks. Looks like you had no clearance issues above or below. Cell coverage to boot. All I need to do is convince Kelli to do The White Rim Trail. Seeing your wife doing it certainly helps my case. Take care,,,

Did you watch all 5 videos? There were some tight spots along that trail.

White Rim Trail is one of those places that should be on everyone's bucket list. We spent three nights on it last May and had a great time. We tent camped it since there was no way our trailers were going to make that journey. I definitely plan on going again. Below is a pic of camp on our first night on the trail at Airport Campground.

I'm looking forward to watching all of your videos when I have some spare time.

Yes, we watched all the videos. There were some squeakers side way and overhead. We're looking to get a 4x4 Transit conversion 148" wheelbase. Narrower that a TC and Lower overhead too plus decent ground clearance.

What would you estimate the widest camper that could fit the tight spots on the trail?

I know your 815 is a fairly narrow camper. My camper is 94" wide. You think I would make it through?

Also, I watched the videos and you mention you had cell coverage. The whole way? Just spots here and there? I ask because I am just thinking about the what ifs of needing help on the trail. How is that handled without a way of contacting anyone? It seemed pretty quiet out there and pretty remote. Help would be pretty far away and that's after actually contacting someone. Thoughts?
