Hello!! This is my first full-size expo/camper. I spent 7 years building a 4 door Jeep JK, then some time with an Excursion pulling a 23' Sleekcraft Enforcer boat. Time to get back out remote camping. This truck and camper are in near perfect condition; stove and fridge have never been used. V10 with only 33K original miles. Has a 2800w generator, storage for 3 full-size propane tanks, full-size spare tire in utility body storage, 20 gallon extra refueling station with pump system, ARB bumper with 16K Warn winch, satellite ready, wifi ready, numerous LED offroad lights, 2 radios in the cab (CB and HAM, I believe) and learning more....... I am excited about the potential of this rig.

I like it. way too much truck and way too little camper: just the right combination to last, off-road. Neither is going to stress the other. What were the miles you would need to recoup the cost of a diesel vs. a gas truck? 250K miles?
You are good to go.
regards, as always, jefe

Most of the time I would suggest 3-4" of clearance between the cab and the TC, especially with a Ford anything, but you are not going to get much frame flex out of this setup so just keep an eye out for any contact.

Seems fair enough, especially with all the accessories
Absolutely. So far we have accounted for approx $8000 in electronic accessories alone - cellular repeater, cell signal booster, gps modules, search and rescue type equipment and racing checkpoint communications. And still learning more each day. I believe this rig was built for Baja; either offroad expedition, bugout, surfing competition or racing support. Whew....
