    2020 Ram 5500 DIY Composite Panel Camper Build Thread

    Thank you, this is very helpful to help estimate total height of slide in camper, flatbed, and mods. Not necessarily, I can't estimate total height without a truck with mods, or estimating others based off their heights/camper heights. Lord knows we don't need anymore Karen's in the world...

    2020 Ram 5500 DIY Composite Panel Camper Build Thread

    What is the height from top of frame rail to ground when aired to ride height? I think I've seen it somewhere in the 35 pages but can't find it now. I don't think this was covered, or I missed it. Why did you have to move your forward axle 1in forward? To keep the same steering angle, or to...

    Isolating Vibrations from chassis through subframe to camper box

    I'm currently in the stages of designing a sub frame to fit a BAE M1088 chassis, extended 36inches. I've contacted a few subframe vendors and/or fabricators of subframes, but want to collect further opinions here before choosing someone. What are the best techniques to isolate vibrations from...

    Subframe & Camper Box leveling while parked

    Hey All, Hope everyone is doing well. I've begun building a expo rv based of a 2001 BAE m1088 chassis. Once the build gains momentum past the standard items I'll start a build thread, although I'm not great at write ups--I'll try my best. As I begin to piece everything together, I have a few...

    Possible new supplier of fiberglass composite panels to North America

    Depending on cost per panel, I for one would be interested. Would be great to see costs and lead times vs. glassing my own panels from foam core, as this would save a lot of time to focus on the guts of the camper.

    Payload Weight and MPG's

    Workerdone- I agree, and certainly will strive to design a light camper. I suppose I was looking for any comparisons someone may have done on different loads, tested over x miles with constant conditions. IE: If a f450 or ram 4500 with a full size lance camper could do a 10 mile highway section...

    Payload Weight and MPG's

    I'm 3 months in on designing a camper build, similar in size to an Earthroamer. I plan on using a Ram 5500 crew cab chassis, and will extend the frame by approximately 2ft. Dimensions are not final, but the Earthroamer XV-LTS is the closest comparison so far. In designing the build materials...

    Subframe Designs

    Hey All, Hope you are doing well. Yahoo for post #1! I am in the early-mid stages of planning a pickup camper. Similar in size to Earthroamer, or the UXV (of GXV). I've read several posts on 3 & 4 point mounting systems, read the Ecoroamer build and saw Jay Shapiro's take on it, and also...
