Looking for a truck camper. 8.5' or so...


Recommended Posts

Hey there fellas, if you come across something that's a decent deal and not rotten please let me know. 

Most of the stuff I'm finding is overpriced, 11' long and heavy, or both....

 

For 8' bed Dodge. Want to be able to tow a small car trailer without superhitch. 

20 years old or newer.

no leaks. 

electric jacks

A/C

wet bath  

 

Thanks for the help!!

Travis what truck are you hauling the camper with? My Arctic Fox is 8'11" and I tow a car trailer with it but need an extension to do so. I don't have a superhitch it's a Reese 2 1/2" extension and it's rated for more weight at 24" than my 02's factory hitch was without a extension. With the newer trucks all having 2 1/2" recievers a guy could add this extension on the cheap. It would open up a lot more options on trailer size. There are a lot of 9' campers out there. You know the RV show is going on this weekend at the Monroe fairgrounds.

Thanks Mr Hoss. I was out of town this weekend hauling firewood. 

The 06 will be hauling the camper.  

 

I would consider a 9' camper but I think that's all I can do. 

Artic Fox 811s are like 43k new so that's not going to happen....

I have 6 months or so to find something.

 

Thanks !

Yeah the new prices are crazy!!!! But the depreciation is pretty crazy too. The aluminum structure of the post 2009ish (I don't remember when they first started them) models is a huge plus. 

However in todays mask wearing craziness everything is at a premium. My neighbor just sold her 2008 (I think) Toyota Tacoma with over 200k on it and it was beat down for $14,000 and she said she paid $20,000 for it new. I have driven that truck and I wouldn't taken it she paid me to haul it anyway for her.

Only two kinds of wood frame campers, those that have rot, and those that you haven't FOUND the rot
Amen! Been there had that
