    Dodge 3500 with Palomino 1200 $25,000.00

    Floor length on the camper? What would you sell just the camper for?

    Did you finance your truck camper purchase?

    I can understand financing if the interest rates are good and you have a solid cash reserve. I am with you in the "zero debt for hobbies" rule. We put a $5k limit on a camper for a couple reasons: 1. I currently have student debt that we are trying to be aggressive about paying down, and 2. We...

    Did you finance your truck camper purchase?

    Pretty simple question, did you finance your truck camper purchase? I've been on the hunt for a $5k or less TC to use for the next few years. I've been ogling the Camp X and FWC Hawk but won't buy one for a few years (not in the budget). I'm curious how many people are plopping down the cash...

    Hawk 4WK

    Seems pretty high to me. Saw one the same year with similar build specs go for $9500 recently. I think if it was priced right it would be gone already.

    East coasters- a question for you regarding the truck camper market

    The market for used slide in campers sucks. I'm in Nebraska and can't find anything that isn't a crap palomino. Seems everything is either new, or 30 years old and rotting.

    How hard could it be? My home built pop-up camper project

    Awesome build! I'm chewing on the idea of building one, but I know that if I think that I'll have it done this summer, it will be the next before it actually is.

    Eddie Bauer pants on sale

    Not necessarily with EB. They eventually have everything half off. Bought these pants over a year ago half off, along with an Evertherm down jacket.

    XPCamper goes out of business, files for bankruptcy?

    This is something people don't seem to understand, from young folks to old. It doesn't even specifically have to be running your own business, but rather not being complacent and staying prepared for anything that may come your way. Just last year the company I worked for got rid of my...

    thoughts on full size

    I've taken a similar path. Had a sedan, got 18-20 typically. Had an Xterra, got 15-16 after lift and tires, still felt it was too small. Got an F150, get 17 or so an have a ton of space. Could get even better fuel economy if I slowed down, but that's not going to happen.

    NEW RIG: 2012 F-150 FX4

    I have a 2013 that had the 20" wheels when I bought it, switched to 17s and the ride is a lot better. Luckily if you buy a truck with 20s they are fairly valuable and move quickly. I sold my used set of 4 with bald tires for $500, and bought a set of 4 used Method 305 NV 17" with BFG KO2s for...

    ¿What tire size do you wish existed? But does not.

    I'm with the OP on skinny tires. I think some 285/80R17s or 275/85R17s would be great on my F150. Tried the wide 315s and I'm not a fan, settled for some 285/75R17s that I like, just wish they were a little taller.
