    Looking for some brand recommendations for a slide in camper

    Lance is the top of the line and if weight is an issue then Lance Lite would be the way to go, I have a 10'6"on a 3500 Quad cab 4x4 SRW Dodge it handles it fine, if you want to do a lot of off road go smaller, mine is made for comfort

    2011 V strom 650, fuel injected fun!

    I rode my DR to Copper Canyon in Mex with 2 WR's, good for shorter, smaller rider, plan on shifting a lot and at highway speeds heading toward their max RPM which is 11,500, how long do you think a motor running at over 9000 RPM will last

    Lance 1040 on a flatbed.

    Why not get a service body and gain all that outside storage, they make them that will fit a camper, aluminum would be great

    Newbie looking for the best TC for my rig.

    The Artic Fox camper are rated very light from the factory, with a necessary added package they weigh about 500 lbs more and add your gear figure about 1000 lbs over the advertised weight, my old Lance 9'6" is about 2800 lbs plus gear I've done Baja with it but slowly off road
