    My understanding is a pre-92 4x4 conversion will be DIY as the major conversion companies only do the newer body style.

    Do it.

    Guy near me has one in 4x4 with diesel/banks turbo. Keeps it shacked for most of the year and it's amazing. I've talked to him about buying it and he wants me to give him a number so he can then laugh at me.

    Real nice rigs.

    The cold won't damage it, UV exposure is the enemy of that stuff, and why it needs to be covered ASAP after it's installed on a house.

    There is a liquid coating that can be applied to it which makes it UV stable, I see it on the outside of ICF foundations (although those are typically EPS and not XPS). It sounds like in your installation it would be pretty well protected from light exposure, but that is what will kill it quickly.

    It's also toxic as all get-out when it burns, but that should go without saying given it's plastic.

    Good to know . I was going to make an additional frame with 2x4 and a sheet of 3/4". Maybe ill just makr the 2x4 frame around some of that stuff and skip the plywood. Cheaper and easier/lighter to install every time i load/unload the camper

    It’s a cool rig!!

    Yeah or small shop. Parts and schemes from Quigely and Pathfinder are out there. The pros and cons of 4x4 have been gone over here. That said it sure would suck to see a perfectly useful camper get sucked into an unfinished project vortex. Guy on Exped “simply” swapped the entire chassis over to a quigley. A roadtrek Or similar carriage.

    I always wondered if a lift shook the components like appliances and stuff more than they were engineered to be shook. Probably no real data on that.

    I just went and looked at this. Won't work for my truck. Needs some TLC. If you have a shop and some time this could be a good project.

    It's super tempting, but I kinda need a place right now. Finally getting to where I am "marketable" in the Bozeman dating scene. Chicks love if you have a van.....parked in the driveway of your 700k house.

    As much as the idea of the van life thing makes sense I do need a regular vehicle for work purposes and not trying to stay single forever.



    I never drive clients around unless they are good friends. Covid seemed to take that totally out of the equation for RE anymore.

    Good point about the camper in the truck bed though. I think a GFC would be OK to show up at client houses/showings because they are sleek/cool looking enough.
    well, fuck. any bitch that's worth a salt won't give a fuck about the greater boz re market bubble.

    i met axtells grandson today. cool dude.

    600 lb camper.

    Bizarre video though. Manages to use underexposed video from weird angles so you can’t really see the product.

    Since WRG has decided to buy dentist bikes instead of my camper, I have posted my Trillium Fiberglass camper in Gear Swap.

    Don't like it myself, but I'm sure that look was by design.

    They seemed to be purposely vague in that video. Looks tiny.

    Maybe it's not a production model so they didn't want close-ups.

    The flush toilet will fill the Black water tank quickly. (Are there tanks? No mention...)

    I thought that Rose thing was a parody. Is it not?

    Hey guys.
    Is there a calculating tool to find how heavy of a slide in camper I can throw on my half ton truck?
    Im looking at one that has dry weight of 700kg which is 1543lbs according to the googs.
    Its a 2000 f150 6'5 box with the tow package, has some weird shit under the steering wheel for braking while towing. Quite rusted, so not sure I want to even try and throw airbags in there.
    Camper is a 7ft 7 Somerset fiberglass deal. Price is pretty much exactly what I want to pay and it seems to have everything I need.

    Thank you team!

    The camper you want is a three quarter ton dry, your truck is a half ton, that’s the payload

    This is what I initially thought, but then read stuff like this link from Lance Campers.
    https://www.lancecamper.com/truck-campers/650/
    It says
    Designed specifically for half-ton pick-up trucks with 5' and 6' beds, the 650 is a high quality full featured lightweight truck camper, built for the active lifestyle with 100% Lance DNA!

    With a dry weight of 1,700 pounds which includes class leading standard features like aluminum frame construction,
    So that has a higher dry weight and is built for half ton trucks?

    Read through this thread, most want at least a 3/4 ton for a camper like that. Lance wants to sell campers.

    Should be a sticker on door jamb of the truck listing the payload as built. I would check the load range on your tires as well to see if they have the capacity to carry the weight. Also plan on adding 500lbs to dry weight for water, propane, and beer.

    I'm picking up a 6.5' FWC (pop-up) in a couple weeks so I'm adding a leaf to my spring package and putting better shocks on my 1/2 ton. Air bags have a function but adding load capacity is not one. Air bags can level the truck and help adjust the ride quality.
