Re: pickup campers

Has anyone modified a pickup camper plan to allow a queen size bed to fit in the cabover section? Do you need additional structural support added to the framework? I'm no expert, but I'm sure you would have structural issues extending the cant-levered over-cab portion. I've seen a camper based on a...

Yeah, my buddys hummer comes with a receiver in the front and one in the rear...I thought it was because he didnt know whether he was coming or going. Steve There are a couple of reasons to have one on the front. Ramsey makes a 'portable' winch that connects via a 2" receiver. A lot of off-road guy...

Hey Bob, After all my rambling on in the previous post, I think you don't have anything to worry about. There is one Cascade project listed under the 'Builders Photos' section, and based on http://www.glen-l.com/campers/rv-picboard/rvpic9-h.jpg , I don't think the Cascade extends far enough back to ...

Hi Bob, What percentage of the time will the camper be on the truck? If you are going to be removing the camper, Dave's temporary extension is the way to go (nice write-up, Dave!). However, if you are going to leave the camper on the truck permanently, then I have a suggestion: I've seen some rigs a...

lynchburger, I went through your photo album and there's some GREAT stuff there. ...lots of old campers and RVs... Actually, my username is lynnburcher, not lynchburger, and I don't have a photo album here. However, I am into old RVs, and appreciate your pix. Now I'm going to have to search out tha...

Sorry for the hype

Well, I got to see the camper for the first time in 25 years over Christmas, and was very disappointed. I still maintain that my father built it well, but I was under the misconception that my grandfather maintained it well... For instance, he has replaced most of the appliances over the years and i...

That seems about right for a good STOCK motor, not a race motor.

Can't you get a 'crate motor'? That is a long block that accepts all your bolt on stuff like carb, starter, alternator, manifolds. The last time I looked at a engine overhaul, the crate motor was only nominally more than paying for all the parts and work in a self-overhaul, and all you do is bolt i...

p.s.

A couple of years ago I was at an RV show where TrailManor had a couple of campers on display. Really cool trailers, by the way. They also had a sample of the type of construction I am talking about. http://www.trailmanor.com/WebDocs/Media/Video/TrailManorManufacturing_384.wmv shows a quick look at ...

This might be quicker than removing the pan :idea: Find your engine's casting number and look it up in Mortec’s web site. Includes casting number locations and lists for small block, big block and 348-409 V-8 blocks, cranks and heads : http://www.mortec.com/castnum.htm Hope this helps !! __________...

Also,

Back to the camper part: As I mentioned before, dad used the Cascade plans. I was wondering why he didn't use the chassis-mount plans, or at least one of the 11-foot plans, but he says that the Cascade was the largest available at that time. He built the frame from 1 1/2" spruce, with metal straps t...
