Since I just joined here this is a little late but oh well.

Here is a shot of our new truck/TC combo at Hole in the Rock, south of Moab, Utah. We picked it up from the Outfitter factory (Longmont, CO) in July and then stopped to visit fellow Outfitter owner Don Curley in UT. We went from a 2006 F350/2004 Apex8 to a 2007 F350/2007 Apex9.5. Truck still sits slightly tail high and is only halfway on the overloads with NO air bags or other suspension helpers. It wasn't fully loaded but there is only about 500lbs of stuff still to go in it. It rode great with no sway or wind problems even during some serious storms. Only time I had to drop below 80mph was when it rained so hard that you couldn't see the road.

Congratulations!! We had our very best RV trip with a 8.5' truck camper. We toured the inside passage in Alaska and used the ferry system seven times over a two month period.

Happy for you,

Bill & Cheryl

Thanks. We went to our current combo after getting our previous Class A stuck several times trying to access the off-the-beaten-path camping areas we prefer. We finally came to the conclusion that a 4x4/TC combo fit our intended destinations better.
