Here is the problem with a short bed, SRW, raised truck hauling an excessive large truck camper. Real Life situation.

There is no way one can specifically attribute this accident to the truck config. Driver error. Driver driving like an idiot. Something broke. Someone cut him off, forcing a catastrophic emergency maneuver. Truck capability is just one of many possibilities.
Not to be to harsh on you, but posting this as an example of fact is golf course locker room nonsense.
This guy is one of those dummies that hangs around, being a PITA to the cops. Acting like he's got something useful to contribute when all he wants is to get some sort of hero pat on the head.

Also- I measured the height of bed of the stock 3/4 ton GMC pickup that carried the camper that I bought without the camper inside the bed. It was 3inches shorter than my bed, but the GMC had rails for a fifth wheel hitch so it sat on 1” plywood.

So this camper sits 2” s higher on after market stiffer 3600# springs, airbags AND it’s in a ONE ton truck with E rated tires versus a stock suspension 3/4 ton truck. Which vehicle do you think could corner more safely, mine or the stock setup of the former owner ?

Nice looking setup!
And in regards to the above post, welcome to rvnet! The land of grumpy ole men who would probably find something to complain about while receiving a briefcase full of $100 bills while getting a __ from a supermodel!
Will be so nice to climb into your “home” after work. Looks like you found a great truck AND camper!

Lifting COG a foot definitely is not helping in hard cornering.
I never felt danger in hard cornering with my setup.
