Went Camping up at Philpot for a few nights. Quiet but a shitload of mosquito's. On the way down I checked out an abandoned camper, Looks like it should be in repairable condition, so I'm going back up to drag it home. I dont know much about campers and weight restrictions, but I guess this would be over the legal limit for a 1993 f150 with overloads?? Will the truck be able to handle it? Its about a half-hour journey home.

but i got some bad news about that camper
you truck is sagin a little bit with that old alaskin camper you got on her now
and the one you found looks to be atleast 9ft but more then likley 9'6"
and will be close to double the weight of the alaskin

Yah probably going to be way over your GVWR. Airbags or load boosters will make it sit level but DOT can still ticket you and if you were in an accident there's a good chance ICBC will deny insurance if you're over weight.

yeah man it's over weight .i've looked in to getting one for my f-150 and that thing looks to big.ICBC will not cover you if your over weight due to insofishant brakeing power on the 1/2 tons.and DOT can and will fine or make you drop the camper right there. sucks but what can you do


cant you borrow josh's truck to get it??

I brought her home, fuck she's a heavy SOB! If anything I got this thing out of the bush from being trashed. I dont know what the fuck I'm going to do with it, I'll prolly offer it on here for what i've got into it for gas. Looks a little rough, but its all mostly simple fixes. My truck was sitting on the bumpstops ha! It was about a hour drive home, that little 302 couldnt keep up with hwy speeds tho.

Already sold it to another board member. He's got a larger truck that can handle the weight. +1 for taking garbage out of the bush and making profit on it :)

I had a Alaskan camper like yours and it was the heaviest piece I ever hauled.
Had it on a 86 Chevy 3/4 ton and it used to suck up the gas hauling it.
