I'm thinking of replacing my tonneau cover with a custom truck cap. Anyone have any pictures or just want to share your overall experience?
I have a 2015 Sierra Regular Cab Short Bed pickup. It would be awesome to see pictures of truck caps from a short wheel base single cab!
Good afternoon...I am getting a camper shell on my truck for my wife's business, she sells clothes that I need to keep clean and dry.
I've done a quick search for tailgate seals and it seems there is anything from weather stripping from your big box stores, so what appear to be custom applications (they might just be lipstick on a pig)...
Anyway...I don't mind paying a little extra, but want to find the best one possible for my '16 short bed. Does anyone have any success or horror stories that I should consider or stay away from?
Thanks in advance!
Newer user to this forum, though I have been on others in the past...
I am getting different opinions from different family and friends- many seem to contradict each other. So I thought I would ask this community for thoughts.
The wife and I have recently purchased, used from friends, a new camper. The camper is a 30 foot Coachman Catalina (1997). The book weight of this trailer says 5,100lbs and includes trailer brakes.
I am planning to haul with my 2012 GMC Sierra 1500. Specs on the truck include; 4x4, crew cab, max trailer package (5.3 KDL HD Cooling Package, trailer brake harness, 3.42 ratio). I have installed the Tekonsha P3 brake controller and am planning to use a weight distributing hitch with sway control. I am currently leaning toward the Camco Recurve R6 hitch to meet both these needs (receiver hitch is rated to 1,100lbs with WD hitch). The truck manual max trailer weight states 9,500lbs with a GCWR of 15,000lbs (truck GVWR 7,000lbs). I do understand the balancing required between truck and trailer for GCWR; if truck fully loaded is 5,500lbs and tongue weight is 1,000 pounds the max trailer becomes 8,500 pounds not the book stated 9,500.
So, with this info I have some friends stating that this will fall well within the limits of the truck. And others stating that I need at minimum a 3/4 ton truck to haul this camper. Based on the info I have been able to collect I feel like I should be just fine with this trailer and truck combination... Yes it will be heavy, but not reaching the max weights- or even coming close (I am estimating 7,000lbs trailer fully loaded). And with trailer brakes and a quality proportional brake control I feel confident in stopping power.
*I guess my analogy/thought is this; if I am mowing a 1/4 acre lawn, sure a riding mower would be great, but a push mower will get the job done just fine and without any difficulty.
Am I right in thinking that while a 3/4 ton truck would be easier, my 1/2 ton will get the job done just fine?
Brand new design Bakflip MX4, model BAK-448120.
Also included is the Bakbox foldaway storage box, model BAK-92120.
Both are in perfect condition. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Come see for yourself, the perfect condition of the cover and storage box. Designed for use on a 2014-2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 or GMC Sierra 1500, short bed pickup.
Both products retail for $1188 together. I bought these brand new from authorized Bakflip dealer 5 months ago. Save over $450 with this package. I am selling because I got a new job, that requires a camper shell on my truck. Photos are too big to upload. I will email photos to anyone interested.
Asking $725 for BOTH. I can also install, if you are local.
