Thanks for the Comments. Yes, we have decided to go this direction:Hi, I've set-up a few F-450 and F-550 with campers, on flat beds.. you should go with the second drawing. Over hang the rear of the camper off the back. This will result in your roof-line being lower ( always a good thing) and it will be easier to get in the camper. Go see Roberto on the Bump street in San Jose and have him make some boxes to go under the camper side overhang. Have him do another box in front of the camper, behind the headache rack with doors on both sides, for storage. Since you will be on the beach, you might have him make you a couple of sand ladders too! Please tell Roberto that Rock sent you. Don't lift that Ford or screw with the suspension angles too much or you will have a lot of problems. Make sure your spare tire is easy to get at or move it to the rear- you'll prolly need it in Baja. Good luck with your project
I will begin posting photos as the tuck is being built.
