Game, Set, Match: The Need For Better Matching Advice

“I would like to see camper salesmen be competent enough and honest enough to sell you the correct camper for your truck when you drive onto their lot. Also, I would like the salesmen to not lie about camper being just fine for your truck when in fact it is as much as 2,000 pounds more than the truck should haul.” – John Rand, 1999 Ford F-250, 2016 Northern Lite 9.6 Q SE

“Professionally matched campers would be great. I went out and bought a Ram 3500 and will add a camper to in the next year or so. Airbags will most likely be added and I will need to change out the factory hitch to be able to pull our 14-foot utility trailer.

I would have been better off buying a 4500 or 5500 and having a dually bed added after buying the chassis cab. I had done this back in 2000 with a F-450 with our first truck camper and wish I would have done it this time around. Centurion Vehicles did my F-450. Unfortunately, they are no longer in business.” – Steve Bridges, 2018 Ram 3500, Looking at Lance campers

“Professionally matched truck and camper set-ups would be a great way to go. I need more payload. I was told my F350 would be fine. My next truck will be a F550!” – Steven Sui, 2016 Ford F-350, 2016 Eagle Cap 1160

“Out in California back in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I shopped at two facilities that matched and equiped trucks and campers that were sold together. One facility was a family operation called “Burbank truck and camper”. Sadly, this wonderful facility closed in the early 90s.

The other facility was in North Hollywood. It was essentially a factory outlet for Lance Campers. Customers could order a new truck and camper from them to be picked up completely equipped and ready to go. I met a few couples that had done that and were very pleased with their purchase.” – Adam Eugene, 1997 Ford F-350, 1997 Northland Polar 1060
