Currently Looking

Postby WK57ABF » January 21st, 2018, 5:14 pm

Hi, we are John & Carole from the north of England. Since retirement we have been full timing in the UK for a number of years living in a variety of outfits be it either a motorhome or a caravan. We are now wishing to downsize to an American truck camper to mount on our USA pick-up truck.

We will be watching the for sale section of this forum and will report back if successful.

Hello both of you, yes subscribe to that sales thread and wait for a bit something comes up like that pretty regular, there is quite a lot to choose from of course so you'll need to say what you're used to living with.

we don't see so many of the really large Lance campers with slide outs etc

Hi Richard, thank you for the welcome. We are just looking for a standard camper, no slides, although we have a F350 with the camper package our weight limit is a miserable 3,200 lbs. Would have to change vehicle to a dually if we wanted slides.

I think there was a nice non-slide Lance for sale the other day. Probably suitable for a single-rear-wheel F350. Looked like it had plenty of space despite being non-slide, and stronger / lighter for that.

Cheers, Steve.

I thought of this from the other day but it was both truck & camper (and besides its apparently gone already)

And in retrospect, although non-slide, that thing is pretty much an 1161, just without the slide. That is a big camper and even slide-less you'd probably want a DRW truck for it.

I guess it is just a case of waiting until the right thing pops up, and that might be over in Europe.

Steve.

i am seriously considering this camper - 2007 Bigfoot 2500 series 10.5 E but trying to make some sense of payloads - my truck door pillar says 2540lbs - camper 3051lbs and the Ford slide in camper specs say 3401lbs with the "camper package" which i have.
Could someone please direct me to a tutorial for posting pictures - thank you.

After quite a bit of research we decided to buy the camper -

it has quite a few options, generator, air conditioning etc and the usual duel pane windows - hopefully all will be up and running in a couple of months.

Very nice we have another member with one of those, He brought it to our meet in Derbyshire the other year and we were all envious
I think it even featured some underfloor space as well!
