Slide in campers

The wife and I are on the hunt for one for my SB. You guys have any pics of yours on your truck? Post em if ya got them

Also, anybody know what all is involved in modifying an older camper to fit in the bed of my truck (the wider style)? Is it worth it to pay less money and just modify them? We will be buying used for sure, but the less money I have to spend the better (more for the truck) .

We have a Lance 845 on a 2006 F250 CC SB 4x4. Carries well, but is a bit heavy (2,700LB as configured, plus food, gear, etc.). The key is: rear air bags, rear anti sway bar, tires with high load capacity, good tie downs and good shocks.

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.

Nick if you do it make sure you get the rear sway bar if you dont have it.

For what the slide in campers cost even used you might be better off with a tent trailer or something similar

I thought about the tent trailer or even a 5ver, but I want to be able to use the camper and haul my 4runner to areas to wheel. A 5ver will be in the works after the kids are too big to use the truck camper comfortably
