Default Re: slide in truck camper

I see that you will be using a 3/4 ton truck, which is good, because a slide in camper on 1/2 tons is over weight.

Caution: if you do buy one and the weight numbers are very close to your trucks limit, I'd be including a condition in my buying contract for a full refund if the truck's GVW is over it's limit with the camper and contents installed.

My brother has a new 1/2 ton Ford with the lightest slide in camper he could find/ buy (new). First off the weight numbers are fudged by the manufacture, and secondly, the GVW is over for legal road use without changing over the registration.
