A bit late to the show. We picked up a gently used MY2016 Livin Lite Camp Lite 6.8 on Dec. 15.:







Top two pics were taken at a rest stop on I-40... just makin' sure that nothing had come loose!

Already working on trip plans... And, yes, it's been winterized!

Regards,
Jim / crewzer

I'm considering buying a F250 supercab (gasser w/ 6.5' bed) and installing a popup Four Wheel Camper (Hawk). How much of a hassle is it to remove the camper? Also, I would like to place the camper on dollies and store it in my garage, if possible?

I'm also considering a mid roof Ford Transit van and building it into a basic camper, the only down side to a van is it's too tall to fit in my garage.

The camper use will be for 1 or 2 people, and the vehicle will be my daily driver (retired), any comments/experience is appreciated.

Loading the camper on your truck takes some practice. You can do it. They are perfect for two. You may want to check out Rv.net forums under the truck camper section. There is a treasure of info there. I love my truck camper.

Is this popup going to be a slide-in or a trailer? I'm confused because you said it was four wheeled.

Most slide-in campers are heavy and can easily exceed the cargo capacity of an F-250. In that case, consider and F-350 instead and be sure you get the Camper Package which will add the rear sway bar. A long bed (crew cab?) will give you the added benefit of the 48 gallon fuel tank.

Four wheel is a brand of a light weight pop up truck camper.

We thought long and hard about the Transit van, and doing a custom build. In the end the F-350/Northern Lite combo won out. We take the camper off when we're not using it: it takes about an hour all told, including the truck's tonneau. Having the pickup is handy, but its length makes it a bear to park except in the outer reaches of mall parking lots. The truck will take us places the van wouldn't, and we can can carry 6 people. Either way there are trade-offs; I'm happy with our choice and the wife loves it, so there's that . ..

My pickup and a 1997 Lance 880 is in the front getting together with other Ford owners for a weekend at an abandoned USAF Base in Eastern Oregon. This Lance is now at an RV lot on consignment.





Group of Fords and their slide ins. My Pickup and Lance is nose on to the U-Haul.



This is the 'new to us' 2005 Alpenlite we have replaced the Lance with in May 2017. Cottonwood Campground at an old Cattle Ranch on the John Day River in Eastern Oregon.



Salt Creek Falls on Hwy 58, Willamette Pass in the Cascades on our way to Diamond Lake.
