Thanks...If I got those numbers it would be no problem...6.5 inches between the camper and the bed rails is perfect...

From what I've noticed driving at night is that Ford pickup headlights are aimed too high before loading anything, those you're cussing at to dim their lights is usually a Ford with the dims on.

Maybe aiming them even higher might be a blessing, shining in the treetops.

Well folks finally pulled the trigger and bought the Ford F350 Lariat Power Stroke Dual Wheel pick-up...I have some other stuff to buy before I can hook up to the camper...So won't know how that will go for a little while yet...I just hope this truck is as good as my GMC...That GMC was a good old gal and gave me a great, and pretty care free ride for 10 years...

Congrats on the new truck. Hope you like it as much as I do mine. My DRW has the 410 gear its a stump puller. I pull a 16k RW with a17ft boat hooked up to the RW, at 66mph I get 9.6mpg.

Congrats Tommy! Sounds like quite a truck, but a dully? Sounds to me like maybe there might plans for a new 5th wheel in the future.
