So I wanted to start a thread for those interested in talking Truck Campers with good information and photos. I'll keep updating the first post with links to other useful posts on the forum that would apply.

1. For those interested in suspension setups, check out this thread: https://www.fordtremor.com/threads/suspension-mods-for-cabover-camper.408/

2. Tremors with Truck Camper Photos - https://www.fordtremor.com/threads/tremor-four-wheel-camper.438/#post-5543

One of my main questions is where do you guys store all your gear when traveling with a truck camper?

I was browsing rvtrader last night and ran across a new model from Travel Lite called Peak 9 (Extended Stay 840 SBRX). I don't know anything about the quality, but I dig the paint scheme. This would look awesome on the back of a Tremor!

I’ve been looking at the Northstar Laredo SC. Lots of boondocking, and like the lighter weight.

What weight are you trying to stay around for the camper? I was thinking something that would still give me about 1000 pounds leftover. So in the 1800 pound range would be ideal.

That's a great setup. How does the truck handle with that much weight on it under normal driving conditions?

Not bad at all, weight is not an issue, I only have about an 1.5 inch drop in the rear without the airbags. Helper spring is barely engaged and nowhere near the overloads. I noticed sway is reduced at 55 psi on the airbags. It’s a bit top heavy but even in 30 mph crosswinds last week, I could still maintain 65 mph. Hellwig Big Wig Rear sway bar is on order and should help. The 7.3l has all the power needed, even climbing Wolf Creek pass.
