Anybody ever mount a camper that was designed for a long-bed (8-ft) truck onto a short-bed (6.5-ft) pick-up?
Not one of the super-heavy campers, with slide-outs, etc. Just a fairly lightweight long-bed model.
My truck is a Chevy 2500HD crew-cab with an extra leaf spring and diesel motor, but, it only has a short bed.
Plan to replace the tailgate cables with HD solid steel support bars, and add air-bags to the suspension, too.
