I pretty much have the camper all set up on the Dodge now. I still need to get the Lock and Load installed for the generator. I also need to move the under the truck flood lights installed like I had on the Chevy.

 

 The Dodge is doing great and the ride with the camper is fantastic.

Look at that back seat, I bet you could get 4 weenie dogs back there! Be nice to install a sliding window in the step of the TC for access to the storage bin in the bed if there are going to be items needed in there. It would also give you rear view mirror usability out the back of the TC.

Nice setup. Hope you get many years out of it.

1. You're going to need to use wipers your more often without that overhang above your windshield (voice of experience here).

2. Will you put the Lock and Load for the generator up front this time?

3. Will your grill fit the rear without blocking access?

4. What about making your storage box cab high with side doors instead of bed rail height?

Like the ride the box seems to be a great idea will it hold up to forward pressures of the TC if it try's to slide forward didnt see bracing to apsorb the presure to the front of the bed wall.

Pete...get out of my head...lol....those are thoughts I'm working on still. Thinking about building a bigger box with side doors.
Getting front hitch today for lock and load...
The grill we are putting on a table but hook up the propane hose to camper still.
Wiper blades....I'm on the dry side of the state. Lol.
