A salesman told me today that he has used stake pocket tie downs for an Artic Fox for "years". How do you folks respond to that?????? Thanks.

With the price of pickup beds and the price of slide-ins today....I suspect that there were different way to tie these things down.
I have never seen a stake pocket tie down but I would like to see how it worked.

A lot of early campers used a stake pocked system. That said I would not even think about using that type system on todays campers and pick up beds.

I had stake hole tie downs on my first turck/camper. It was an 8 1/2' cabover and the tie downs slipped into the stake hole and were angled down. It came with turnbuckles that attached to hooks on the camper. At the time I didn't think too much about the way it was attached. Now I would not want to use anything that could break so easily. I was lucky.

gene,

Tork Lifts, they mount to the frame, are very strong. Might want to use a spring mount to keep the tension from being too much for the camper when the truck flexes.
