    Well I recently came across a really good deal on a Tow Rig and this weekend I just picked up my (new to me ) camper

    Truck: '92 F250 with tow package
    Camper: '74 8Foot Sleep with table, closet, queen bed, 16 Gallon water tank, 110v, propane, battery, Stove, Sink, Heater, fans, and lot os storage..

    Now If I can just get my Trailer done and stop working on everyone elses rig I will be all set..

    Sweet rig!

    A few questions...
    1) What mill is in the F250?
    2) Do you have "overload" leafs in the rear?
    3) What's your guesstimation of the trailer/Jeep weight?

    Just trying to get a handle on dragging my trash... I don't anticipate any issues pulling what I estimate will be about 5500#'s worth of trailer/Jeep with a fairly heavy 3/4ton, but I don't have overloads and wonder if it'll effect things too much...

    Craver Dave,
    I was talking to him on the last ride and I think it was 14,000 to 14,500 when he had it weighed.
    No over loads that I remember and the mid size gas if I remember.
    I'm sure he will get back with you soon.
    He has now made me start looking for a camper but with my rig weight around 18,000 to 18,500 with a camper shell I think it would put me up to high.
