Since this is a new section and we will need some traffic, I will get started with a short write up on my system. We currently have over 50k miles on our set up. The basics are:
2002 Ford F350, crew cab, long bed, 7.3 psd, 6spd manual, 4x4. XLT, with the camper package which includes the rear overload springs and swaybars front and rear. It also has the "offroad" package that added the skidplates for the t-case and fuel tank, as well as the steering stablilizer. Bought new in 2002.
Mods: AirLift air bags. Rancho 9000 shocks, rubber bed mat and the bed has been lined as well. AIS intake, Walker BTM muffler, Oil Crossover, Fuel Rail crossover and an oil bypass filter (built by me). Extra sound deadening in the cab. Aftermarket stereo and speakers. Other than that it is stock and will probably stay that way. Unless it will improve the longevity. Average about 12 mpg with the camper on.
2002 Lance 1010, 10'1" camper. Shower (both internal and external), refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven, microwave oven, hot water heater, heater, bathroom2 Golfcart 6volt batteries hooked up to an inverter, that supplies power to camper when away from shore power. A solar panel to help keep the batteries charged. Other than that, it is pretty much stock as well. We do a lot of boondocking with it. Also bought new in 2002.
It has been to the tip of Baja three times, to Prudoe Bay, Alaska and almost every state west of the Mississippi. On to the pics.

It is our preferred mode of vacation, if we had our way, we would take it everywhere with us.
