No matter what truck camper you have it will fit into a dually bed. no matter what jacks you have ,They make elect or manual extensions for clearance of the fenders on duallys. It's a common thing and done with duallys.

Dually trucks have the same space between the wheel wells as SRW trucks, Some flatbeds do not, but that isn't an issue with trucks with a box. All you need are appropriate front jacks to provide clearance for the fenders.

All you need to do is add THESE to the camper. Search Google for "swing out brackets" for a source.
The above post is just my experience/opinion which is worth exactly what you paid for it.

'05 Lance 845/'06 F-250 or '99 Alpine 36SDS Usually towing an '01 Wrangler locked on 35"s or moderate '98 Cherokee on 33"s (rear locker only)

Is there a way to install the camper on a dually truck before I install the swing out brackets on the camper? I have to order from Artic Fox dealer the swing out brackets.

I have a Lance 1120 sitting on a F550 dually, you must have the swing out brackets to load the camper...

Some camper/truck combos will have a problem with the rear turnbuckles hitting the dually fenders. In that case either the camper anchor point or the truck tie down point will need to be modified.

Good News this Arctic Fox Truck Camper I've been looking at has the swing-out brackets for a dually truck after all. I won't have to worry about this no more.
