    That's great Dan and a nice payload as well. You will have no problems handling that camper for sure! Enjoy and let us know how your maiden voyage goes for you. Scott

    Scott, truck arrived on the 27th. dealer managed to misplace the camper certificate but the payload sticker shows max cargo of 4318#. That is more than enough for our Four Wheel Camper, Grandby model. Love the truck so far. We completed the bedliner and side step install yesterday. The camper gets transferred off the 250 and on to the 350 next week. Then, I am headed to the Central Coast for a three week maiden trip. Looking forward to putting the truck through its paces. Nice mix of on and off road.. Thanks again for your assistance Dan

    wyobull, pulled the trigger on a 2017 f350 XLT CCLB 4x4 with a 6.2. Looked at the Super cab but it didn't have enough leg room for our son..Ordered the minimal options for off-roading, handling our slide in camper and a few creature comforts for the wife. Don't have a build date yet but the fleet guy said he would hold off delivery to get the best incentives in Nov. that's OK gives me time to off load our TC from our current F250. Anywho thank you again for your insite and expertise. Dan

    Hey .. My name is Steve. I go by stufarmer on the Forum. I appreciate your feed back about the Campers. The Northern Lite Campers I'm considering is the 10.2 EX
    & possibly the 9.6 EX. I live in Tampa, so I can only compare Northern Lite & Bigfoot campers by their pictures. It appears the Northern Lite 8.11 SE sits higher over the bed rails than the 9.6 EX model does. Is that so ? Others than a few more standard features, I was under the impression the SE & EX models use the same body. Is that so ?
    Thanks much

    Wyobull thank you for your reply. Like you I am looking to purchase a new truck with a specific payload in mind. The 2017 build and price tool on the Ford site does not include the payload calculation any more. Is there any other way to predict the payload outcome? I am making a build list of other members on the forum along with their payload sticker to get me in the ballpark. I have used the Ford RV and Towing guide but there doesn't seem to be a list of options and their weight to subtract from the camper payload number listed as instructed. My camper is an FWC Grandby model roughly 1500# wet and 8ft in length. I am trying to decide between the XLT CC or the SC. The difference being the overall length of the truck. 164 vs 176. Your advise and expertise would be much appreciated. Dan

    Greetings WyoBull- I was lead to believe that the payload sticker by the driver's door and the Maximum Cargo Weight for a slide in camper found in the glove box are different animals. What is the best way to match my camper to the truck I want to purchase? Thanks...

    Apparently my inbox was full so didn't receive a message you tried to send. Could you resend? Thanks. Bob

    Scott, it's the rear awning that's giving us a problem - we don't have a side awning. It was a factory install. I wouldn't worry so much about the rear axle weight - the tires are the real limiting factor. Why they give it a 6100 rating is more to do with the tires than the actual capacity of the axle. We'll probably be a little over unless filling the water tank shifts some of the weight forward. We're taking the camper off tomorrow for the first time since we still seem to have a problem with one of the air bags. Need to get it moved over a little so the camper sits square on it. You would think that Bozeman Ford would have done a better install - probably just didn't tighten the bolts enough. Bob

    Bob, I will try mine this weekend when I get home from my business trip. Randy did not extend the side awning when we went through the delivery process. I will let you know how mine comes out.
    Did you get your awning installed at the factory or did they do it at 5 Star?
    I am also planning on weighing my camper on the truck this weekend. I am really obsessing over whether I will be over my axle rating of 6100 pounds. If so, from a pure safety perspective, I may be forced to trade my truck for a one ton. I am kind of sick about thinking about having to do that but if I am overweight on the axle, I will always worry about it. I will let you know how I come out.

    Scott, Tried the awning for the first time yesterday and it didn't work right. Canvas starting unrolling but arms didn't go out right away and then suddenly did, but not exactly at the same time. Talked to Ken who installs the awnings at 5-Star. He is going to send a couple of small rubber bumpers with instructions as to where to install them - probably to keep the awning arms a little away from the camper so they go out easier. Randy only extended the awning a couple of feet when we were there and it seemed alright.
