Thanks for the info, haven't been there before but looks nice. I think I'm going to have to schedule in more time there than I had originally thought.

Nice looking setup, Rzar! How do you like it so far? It looks like it's handling the weight just fine - do you put airbags on it? Also, is that the 6.5' bed?

Thanks again. It's a long bed. No airbags, no nothing. This truck is a beast! Camper is 4500 lbs.

Inks Lake, Texas

Just got my Cirrus 820 loaded on my 2018 F350 CCSB.

I added a Hellwig swag bar and Firestone air bags to make sure the 3000 lb camper didn't cause any handling issues.

We had it out last weekend and everything worked out very well!

Really like those Cirrus campers. I'd love to have that Alde heating system.

I am looking forward to using the Alde heater.

It was 100 degrees here in Texas.

This was the year I sold it to my son...about 5 years ago. We bought it back and will be picking it up this month.

A few camper pics from our first trip with the new Adventurer and F350. 3600 miles over three weeks. Five National Parks, four states, two provinces. I think we crossed the Continental Divide at least 12 times.

Excellent pics . im envious! What extras do you have on your truck to cope with the camper weight? Im thinking of doing airbags next year. My camper is about 2600lbs wet Elkhorn 9T. On anF250 supercab 8ft bed .

Thanks for the compliment.
All I have are the upper stableloads. They engage only with the camper loaded. Truck ran great, except for very rough, potholed road. I could hear what I think was the stableloads coming off the springs. Developed a little sway rhythm. Need to check visually.
I weighed the truck without camper - 7300 lbs. Camper weighs abut 3100. Maybe 4000 loaded? My payload sticker reads 4600.

Good to know, i had some self made stable loads to engage my overloads which work well . Im almost even with front and back when those engage. I do notice a little sway that makes me a little squirrel-ly above 65mph . I keep the speeds at or below 65 due to that. Thinking of installing air bags next year couldn't hurt. The truck had the factory camper package with sway bar and extra suspension spring . Also had Rancho Shocks . So, managable but not optimal I think .
