i decided to go with dragonfly tarps - put a awning rope channel on all 3 sides of the camper, and can have shade or be dry from rain on whichever side necessaryHey, just wanted to get everyones input on awnings for the camp-x and get an idea what everyone is using. Lots of options out there so just curious to se what works best for this camper.
I think mine has a slight slant but I can't remember which end appears higher. It might be that the front is propped up slightly from the front mounting plate/bracket/thingy.Does anyone's Camp-X sit lower compared to the truck bed rail closer to the cab than compared to the truck bed rail near the tailgate? When I measure from the bottom of the camper to the truck bed rail it's 3/4" less clearance close to the cab compared to the same clearance between the truck bed rail and bottom of camper at the tailgate. It's pretty easy to see it without measuring and looks odd. I'm on a 2020 F350. I had to place (3) 3/4" horse mats in the truck bed so the camper would clear the cab. My truck is pretty bid and the Camp-X was probably fitted for a 1/2 ton truck. Thinking about placing another horse mat in the front half of the bed and try to level this thing out. It seems to work ok with the slant, but it looks a little odd.
This coming winter I plan to get in some longer trips and to continue to test the Winter capabilities. It’s awesome to hear the snow falling on the roof and to wake up to deep powder in the Camp-X. Snow Broom is keyCheck out skymannnn on Instagram too - he did a bunch of really cold winter camping and snowmobiling this last winter.
I have always brought my second tank but mainly because I picked up my Camp-X in October 2020 and when I was out in Nov-Feb I really wanted to have the backup bottle. One time I had to change it after 3 nights when it was quite cold (-16F) and I was happy to have the second bottle. As Chadx said well you really don’t need the second bottle with you (if you have one with 2 bottles) if you want to save some weight. You guys with the new model have the big 20lb Bottle which is nice. I would even bring a second 20lb in my trailer in the winter for extreme cold and backup.Thanks to Chadx and all of your write ups on here, going to likely pull the trigger this week and custom order one from OEV and pick it up late in the summer
We are going to be living in it full time as we travel about so will post a bit on here if we buy it. thx again crew!
I have the Weboost Drive Reach RV 12V Model and Boulder Vehicle Outfitters installed it for me, they did a great job! Performance is impressive in most locations. I will have to check power draw.Is anyone running a cell signal booster (e.g., weBoost) in their CampX. Curious about install method, performance (inside CampX and in truck cab) power draw etc. Thanks in advance.
Through the same hole as the Solar that was drilled at the factory. Mine is setup with a flip up mount from Boulder Vehicle Outfitters and rigged to be used while in the Camp-X. You need to be near the wired antenna for it to work well. Eventually will add a separate Booster to the truck for driving that’s a fixed mount.Thanks good to know that you are happy with the Weboost performance. Where did the shop fish the antenna wire into the CampX? Do you run it when you are traveling? If so do, does it improve reception in the truck cab?
