My '74 F350 and '78 11' Slide in Camper

Here are some pics of my 1974 F350 SUPER Camper Special, 44K original miles, all original paint, body, interior and engine. 460, C6 auto tranny, 4.10 rear end. They only made the "SUPER" from '73-'76. On it is my 1978 11' Great Divide slide in truck camper. Also all original exterior and interior. I did sell the camper last year. I also still have my all original 1979 11' Mitchell slide in truck camper which I will need to post a pic of. These are my hobbies.

Nice rig!......The 'Super' had the spare tire in the side of the bed there on the passenger side, correct?

You are correct. The Super has an extended wheelbase by about 7". They did this to increase the payload capacity and total GVWR to 10,000 pounds. This met the new GM dually pickup which was rolled out in '73. The dually also had a 10k GVWR. Ford didn't produce a dually until 1980 so the Super was Ford's answer to GM. By extending the wheelbase, the reared of the truck was short and stubby resulting in no room for the spare to fit beneath the bed so Ford designed the side spare carrier just for the Super. The Super also rides on narrower rails than the F100-F250 because the Super sits on a chassis like the motorhome said which had rear duals. The production of the Super was pretty low.

When I was a kid, we had a friend of the family that worked for Ford and he had many truck and camper combos...one was a Travel-Eze and I seem to remember him having a 'Ford' camper also. I remember him having the Super that he also towed a boat with the camper so he had to have a slide in ball hitch that was solid (not the 2" square tube) and around 3 feet long to reach past the camper... He was shocked at how much that cost him (probably a whole $15 back then)...

I didn't realize it was a different frame...good info!

WOW My parents had the same camper all the way to the same jacks. They bought the camper and my brother bought the truck a 1968 GMC camper Special. I thought that it halled it pretty well but he then bought a 73 Chev 3/4 ton and it could hardly go I think it had a 350.Pu. I got to drive it once to go dump the tanks.LOL thanks for sharing.
