I was scanning the local Craig's List this morning and found this add. I was interested in looking at the F350 crew cab, since it looked nice and solid, then I looked a little closer at the pickup camper on the back. That thing is huge. I don't think I have ever seen anything quite that big for a drop in.
Anyways, just thought I would pass it along to see what you guys thought of the size of the camper.
FYI, I have no affiliation with the add, just wanted to get some opinions.

I'd imagine the tires on that tag axle would take quite a beating when turning the truck.
Makes me wonder how the truck/camper would do on some rough terrain, speed bump/hump or a driveway. Specifically how much weight can the tag axle take and how the camper mounts into the bed. If you went over something where much of the weight was taken off of the rear axle and placed onto the tag axle it seems like it could cause some issues.
Tough to tell if the thing is sprung or not - you'd sure think it would be, and there must be some way to adjust the height of that axle in relation to the bed height of the truck that's going to carry it.
Holy hairy departure angle Batman. I could not get that thing up my driveway. Even with the tag axle the bumper or step in the back would drag the whole way. I would imagine that the tag axle would remove weight off of the drive axle and the truck could get stuck, that is if the slide in camper could actually stay in the bed if this kind of load was applied to it.......
