Not sure what you mean by the "older...wider style" of truck camper.
Nice camper! I know I won't be buying anything as nice as that one, since Lance campers are plated in gold, or at least they're priced that way
. Do you haul a trailer at all? The camper I was looking at yesterday was about 1500 lbs, so I'm not real sure if I would 'need' airbags, but I know these SD's sag like b!tch trucks with weight in them. They do ride real nice with about 2k in the bed though
I'm coming to the conclusion after looking at many camper pics, that my 'too wide' comment may just be applied to the Granby 4wheel campers. See how the part that slides in the bed looks compared to this other one? I know that the bed widths changed at some point (I was told '88) making every camper of the Granby style useless to newer truck owners. My Dad had one for his 85 GMC, and had to get rid of it after he bought his 02 Chebbie.
