truck campers

I have a question maybe some can answer for me. I have a 2001, 915 lance lite and the truck is a 1999 F-250 , 7.3 . I have heard that you need to put 2 x 6 in the floor of the bed so the camper will fit over the cab area. As you can see I have not had it on the truck yet. I just ain't sure if the camper will clear the cab. Anyone out there who may know for sure If I need the 1 1/2 inches. Thanks for info in advance.........

You are somewhat correct.

What needs to be done is you need to make a framework that will fit between the wheel wells out of 4x4's. Frame it front to back and side to side. I would also be wise to fortify the outer framework with a couple of cut pieces from side to side on the inside. Screw down a piece of 3/4" plywood to finish the topside that would be against the camper floor. The get a HD rubber bedmat from a parts store and place it on top of your frame work to be between the framework you built and the camper. Hold the camper into the bed with a good set of Happy Jacks or Tork Lift made for your truck application.

For my 2009 with clearance lights I had to add another frame besides the one the dealer added. That way I have more clearance. I did have about 1/2 inch but was uncomfortable with that little. now there is plenty and it didn't effect anything.

I bought 2 pieces of rigid pink foam insulation used for insulating foundations.
They are 2 inches thick and 4ft by 8ft. Fit right inbetween the wheel wells and are best of all light weight. I use them on my 05 chevy and a 08 lance 1055. Works for me. regards nm1oqrz
