We have never used anything but the rubber bumpers and have not had a problem in 4+ years. However, I think a 1x or 2x wood spacer would not be a bad idea.


X2 Never used anything but good quality rubber mat over sprayed in bed liner. No spacer in front either. had a few panic stops over the years.Just rubber bumpers. Never moved.

Do your truck's rear tail light lenses rub on the camper when the 2x10 is not installed? Mine do so that is why there is a 2x10 spacer between the front of the TC and truck bed wall.
