[Dwayne] I've been looking for a truck camper, and I think I have it narrowed down to a 8' 1995 Explorer by Classic Mfg. Ltd. (North Battleford, Sask., Can.) or a 1995 10' Vanguard by Peak Manufacturing (also of North Battleford). Obviously the Vanguard has more room and options (bathroom/shower, etc), but I'm not sure if it will travel correctly on my truck. I have a 1996 GMC SLE 4X4 half ton with a regular (short) box. With the tailgate down, the length of the box to the end of the tail gate is about 8' 4". Am I going to have any troubles with the Vanguard sticking out about another 1.5 feet past the tail gate? Is the Vanguard too heavy for my truck? I'd imagine it weighs between 2000 to 2500 lbs. Any help or experience about these issues (or models of camper) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
