At last, I finished repairing my truck camper. Here's a link to some before and after photos:

This truck camper has had a hard life, but things are looking up.

Very nice job Doug! I like the car motif. Our truck camper was my favorite way to camp. It was a 1975 stickie that we rebuilt the overhead in due to water damage.

How does the Stabile-Lift jacking system work? I take it that it is the white tubing under the trailer? We always used corner jacks and they were scary to me.

The Stabile-Lift system goes up and down with three geared motors: Two on one side and one on the other. It's operated by toggle switches in an exterior box. The whole apparatus stays on the camper and rides with you down the road. Kind of unsightly, but it works well. Theoretically, it also functions as the hold-downs for the camper, but I use my own Happi-Jak hold-downs.
