a new Fiberglass Truck Camper owner Part II

Hi Folks

Well I have mounted the Bison and I'm one Happy Camper.

a new Fiberglass Truck Camper owner

Big thing with truck campers from yesteryear is the new pickups have weird dimensions so fitting of camper into box and clearing the cab roof and box sides is hit or miss. I was lucky. This little camper is 7'6" and just fits onto the F150 short short (5.5') box. of course the folks on any Truck Camper Forum will insist that it can't be done (1/2 ton truck) and that a 2.5 ton truck is required.

Truck handles great. Added a Super Spring and E rated tires. Kept camper on all summer. Only a fresh water tank to deal with.

Now here is the kicker. The Camper was produced in Earlton Ontario, right across the street from Boler. Can't remember the details but Boler was involved. I can find out because a gentlemen in Earlton was affiliated and he is still working in the RV industry. Talked to him briefly.

More to follow.
