Default truck camper question

Just looked at a truck camper, new to this, camper will weigh appx.4000 pounds when fully loaded. Web site(Lance) says I can carry that with a 250, that does not sound right, thought at least 350 or even 350 dualie. I do not want to be right up to the limit. Also I know dualies are allowed in IBSP but can you take them on the beach in whats left to drive on in OBX? Thank you.

It's ok to run dualies on the beach at IBSP.
Also If I was going with a camper I'd be thinking like you 350 or better.

Lance says that because if they mount it they will center it right. It may be OK for traditional use on the road, but you are going to put a strain on it on the beach. I couldn't find out about duallys on any of the NC websites. I emailed a friend about it. I'll let you know when he responds.

I have a Lance camper mounted on a F-250 .It's been on IBSP, Seaside, and just about every beach down to Cape May. Only thing that I had changed was having Air bags placed on the truck. Only had one problem @ Seaside and that was because I didn't drop enough air from the tires. Go for it, like they say,"The Devil hates a Coward". Good Luck, Joe.

Joe, what model do you have? I am looking at the 1055 model (3150 dry weight).Not going to carry that with a 250, although I would prefer to go with the 250 over the 350 because it is a much better ride when you don`t have the camper on, so I am told, never owning a heavy duty truck before. Will not consider anything other than Ford.

Because I have a short bed, I went with the 845.No regrets at all. Only option that I didn't get was the Sat. and A/C, because most of the time I use it on the beach.Do you have a dealer in mind? I drove down to Delaware and got mine.(no sales tax on slide-in campers!) Saved enough to pay for the generator. Let me know what you decide. Joe.

Joe, Are you the only one in the camper? Is there enough water in the tanks to shower if your on the road for 3-7 days? That's what I am concerned with. It is just me who would use the camper but would want to take to OBX , Montauk, Assateague.
Have already been to the Lance dealer in DE. Trying to pair the right camper with the right truck.

Kinda hard to answer that question. My Lance has a 30 gal fresh water tank and I've had no problems going 3 days with it. Hatteras has a dump station coming off the beach that was perfect. ( we stayed 6 days at the point.) Brigantine has fresh water available also, but no dump station. Most of the time, its just my wife and I using it. Big thing is the 6 gal. water heater, not conducive for looong showers Are you dealing with Slicers? They are the best. Joe.

Thanks for the insight Joe, now just have to decide on size, and yes, dealing with Slicers.
