Using Truck Camper Tie Downs to Mount a Camper

Those who are going truck camping for the first time may find it quite challenging to mount the camper on their pickup truck, but with the help of truck camper tie downs, it is an easier job than you might expect. Don’t let this seemingly difficult task get in the way of you enjoying the outdoors. After all, your pickup truck allows you to go to places where those huge motorhomes cannot, so mount that camper and get out there!

Here’s a quick and easy guide to mounting your camper:

  •          Raise the camper up until it is 4-6 inches above the bed of your pickup truck. Make sure you raise the front first, then bring up the rear end until it’s level. Raising the rear end first might cause the camper to tip over because it’s usually heavier in the front.
  •          Start backing up your truck under the camper. You need to watch out so that your truck’s lights on the rear won’t touch the camper. You also need to make sure that the camper stays clear of the truck’s wheel wells.
  •          Don’t finish backing up until all the wirings are connected. After that is done, go ahead and finish backing up, then lower the camper onto the bed. The rear end should be lowered first, then the front.

 After that’s all done, now you need to secure the camper to your truck. One of the most popular ways for doing this involve using truck camper tie downs. We recommend using a frame-mounted tie down system whenever possible. They are the most durable and the strongest available, and if installed properly, can be trusted to lock down your camper in all driving conditions.

 However, not all vehicles can be equipped with frame-mounted tie downs, so the next best thing would be using tie downs that can be fitted to the bed. These bed-mounted tie downs are also strong and can secure your camper, but since they are attached to the sheet metal of your truck’s bed instead of the frame itself, it will provide a slightly weaker base.

 Truck camper tie downs will act as anchor points for mounting your camper. You should install two tie downs at the front of your truck bed, and two more at the back. For bed-mounted tie downs, however, sometimes you can find front tie downs that can be installed to the wall at the front of your truck’s bed. This will definitely prove to be stronger than those that just attach to the rails of the bed.

 There are also tie downs that can be mounted to the rear bumper of the truck, and will act as permanent points for securing the rear end of your camper. These rear tie downs can also be paired with either bed-mounted or frame-mounted kits.

DF-TT07 Tiedown Kit – This is a direct-to-frame tie down kit that is said to be three times stronger than other tie downs. While other tie downs hold down a camper, this kit will prevent camper movement in all directions.

Tie Down Front – This Torklift True Frame-Mounted Tie Down kit uses a patented design to securely bolt that camper down directly to the truck’s frame. Guaranteed to save your truck and camper from damaging the bed and bumper, comes with a lifetime warranty.
