qustions before traveling

I aquired a truck camper for free(aside from fuel to go get it!) It has no obvious way to tie it down to the truck bed. Hubby thinks that it will stay put as is.. I say I will feel better if its tied down. Also, having never had anything like this before.. How is electricity provided? there is an electric harness, like would go to a trailer, and a plug in for 120 volt, which is not compatable with an extension cord

The first thing you should do is identify the camper.

You need an adapter for the the cord. Get it at Walmart or a RV dealer.

Your hubby will get you into trouble on this. He is not considering the amount of wind on the camper that will lift up the front and drop the whole thing on the road behind you, right in front of someone else. You HAVE to tie a camper down to the truck.
