Installing Camper Jacks

I have a 1997 Okanagan Camper that currently doesnít have jacks on it. I bought four hijacker brand jacks that I am wanting to put on to make taking it on and off my truck easier. The jacks will not clear my truck once put on the camper. I have L brackets I can weld on that will make them stick out further but two will still not clear on the driver side (camper sits off centre in my truck). Does anyone have ideas on how I can make these jacks on my camper work?

I appreciate all the information I can get!

Welcome to iRV2 .

Is your truck a bubble fender dually ?

Or was the camper built for a step side truck ?

I'm not sure I understand your comment about " Two will not clear on the drivers side " ?
Won't the rear jack clear the bumper ?

You need the swing brackets for the front jacks
Swing in when you travel if not, they will be in the viewing mirror
