Slide in camper questions

Questions for the RV experienced.

With a 2001 F-250 crew cab short box what size of slide in Camper am I limited to?

What are pros /cons of having tailgate down, can I fit in a longer camper?

Do campers of this smaller size ever come equipped with a toilet/shower

or at least a toilet?

What are the premium/quality names: Slumber Queen, Timberline etc.?

What is the situation with the older 70-80's campers, apparently they don't fit in newer truck beds?

With a short box pickup you are most likely limited to an 8.5 slide in camper. On the newer models, you need to take off the tailgate, I am not sure about the older ones. I have had 2 and loved them! I had a S & S Camper and an Arctic Fox. Check out to find some. Lance is also a big name.

Good luck!
