That is cool stuff. Glad to here you like the Palomino. That tip on the frame mount clamps is a great one thanks.I have a Palomino 1200 and love it. Hardly know it is on the truck. I have it on an 8 foot box but I carried a similar camper years ago on a 6' and it was no problem. I'm on my 3rd slide in in 20+ years and the biggest tip I can give off the top of my head is go for a frame mount system to tie it down. Clamping the camper down tight makes it feel like it is part of the truck.
What kind of tips do you need.
I like travel trailers too....but the "deep woods" camping is what we want to do. We also have an "elk trailer" we need to be able to tow also(in season of course:wink: )I used to have a pop-up camper for my f-150, we really enjoyed it for going deep woods camping. We had our pop-up for 13 years and enjoyed it ALOT. Then we got a travel trailer, then I needed a diesel to haul it. Got a diesel, got rid of the pop-up. We took that pop-up places I would never think of taking our travel trailer. We still have a t.t. but I have been thinking of getting another pop-up for quick weekend getaways. I think my f-250 wouldn't even know a pop-up was in the back.
I only got the F250 late last Summer so I'm still collecting data on millage but it is much better than my F150 I use to have. The trip I was loaded for in the picture with the trailer I got a little over 16mpg and that was in hilly but not mountainous terrain in New England. Another trip with just the camper but loaded much heavier than a normal camping trip (I was hauling everything for an old car flea market space) I got 18mpg in the PA hills.That is cool stuff. Glad to here you like the Palomino. That tip on the frame mount clamps is a great one thanks.
Ever check the mpg with the camper on?
