Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at TorkLift's line of custom frame mounted camper tie downs for the front. You want to verify here at etrailer.com using our fit guide, which ones work best for your vehicle. There are sets also available that will fit your vehicle available for the rear. These custom mounted brackets are going to provide an easy attachment point to hook up your camper.What's additionally great about those is that they have the removable ends. So when you're not using it, they'll be hidden away, and your vehicle will look like factory. The custom mounted brackets we're engineered to provide you with the best location for your tie down point to even distribute the load.

So, once they're attached, and adjusted. This'll keep your camper from being too top heavy. This'll increase the overall ride quality while you're campers attached, and the safety. It's made of a durable steel with a black powder coat finish, which'll ensure that you have a strong attachment point, and it'll be highly resistant to corrosion.When you are ready to use them, you can just slide in the attachment point. There's two points here to attach your turn buckles, and here on the shaft there are two points that will give you an adjustment inward, and outward, to specifically fit your camper.

So, you can use this hole for a wider camper, or this hole for an aero camper. Once you've got your appropriate hole, slide the pin through, and bring the latch over, and lock it in place. Then you can attach your turn buckles.Now if you need some turn buckles you can pick them up here at etrailer.com. There are many a different styles. From chain types, to quick attach lever types.

Our style is going to a be a threaded rod type that will hook to your camper, and down to our attachment point. We'll adjust it snug by turning our turn buckle here. With our passenger side done, we'll repeat that same step on our driver's side.Compared to stake pocket, our bumper mounted camper tie downs, frame mounted tie downs will provide better handling. They also mount out of sight, giving your truck a cleaner look, because the custom fit brackets secure tight against your trucks frame there is no loss of ground clearance. That completes our look at TorkLift's line of custom frame mounted camper tie downs for the front..

I bought this when my previous belly bar and rear tie-down bent badly when our truck slid off the road into a steep ditch and our camper nearly tipped sideways off our truck. This product is a bit better then my old set up, but I expected something much better for this very high price. It wasn't too tough to install, but that is despite the poorly written instructions. I am also disappointed that the tie-down point has a slot cut in it which seems would significantly weaken it. I am not optimistic that this will not bend or break if we have a similar significant side load such as when we slid into the ditch. I will probably weld the slot shut to strengthen this tie-down point.


Comments
They are starting to rust significantly. That is very disappoint considering the very high cost of these.

The mounts were well made, but ridiculously expensive. instructions were dismal, once I figured it out, the rear mounts went quickly.




by:
2017 Ram 2500

I have a 2017 Chevy 2500. Installation system was great, install was simple if you watch the videos. The camper is very stable with these tie downs. Much better than my previous set up.
I highly recommend this TorkLift system!




by:
2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

This is a very well designed and manufactured product. A lot of thought went into form, fit, function and the installation process. Not having to drill, cut or weld on the vehicle and still end up with a robust, flexible mounting system is excellent. Installation is a bit of a task, as long you take the time to read the installation instructions everything goes smoothly.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone considering frame mount tie downs!~




by:

Well built. Installation took about three hours for front TLC2223 and rear brackets TLC3215 on 2017 GMC2500, instructions were not as clear as they might have been. I am pleased with these brackets, and with TorqLift tie spring loaded tie downs camper was rock solid.




by:

Although the price was higher than for other tie-down systems, it was definitely the right purchase. It is rock solid, and I do not regret getting it. It worked great on the maiden voyage (3 weeks of asphalt, gravel, and dirt roads).




by:
2017 GMC Sierra 2500

These brackets are stout, the pictures don't do it any justice. I installed them on my 2017 GMC 2500. The hardest part of the install was fishing the bolts through the frame. The second one only took about 15 minutes. I'm only using the front ones because I have an after market exhaust and the back one would not fit. Everything packed good and decent directions.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Significantly overpriced for what it is and on top of that it’s terrible quality!
They were installed on the truck for 2 weeks, and used once when they’ve already started to rust. Even if they were made of stainless steel it’s overpriced for what you get.
When I contacted Etrailer about a warranty they directed me to TorkLift. At first they were just going to send me a can of paint to address the rust issue. After I threatened to leave a poor, but realistic review they sent me a replacement set.
I’d say to wholeheartedly avoid this product but the problem is there aren’t other options…. And they know it…. Which allows charge whatever they want.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


I had the mountings professionally attached to the frame. The hatches can be easily removed when not in use( and I would recommend that to keep them from being stolen). Using chains and turnbuckles, I feel very comfortable with my truck camper staying where it is.. does not rock, very solid.
It’s nice to feel secure about my camper staying firmly attached.
It was worth the investment.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


The rear Torklift camper tie down instructions and install were straight forward and an easy install. However, the front Torklift camper tie down instructions and install was difficult. The instructions were not clear and the photos of the install included on the instructions were very poor quality. Additionally, the instructions said to torque the bolts but there was not sufficient room to get a torque ratchet on the bolt. In fact it was very difficult to even get two of the nuts on the bolt. Look at the attached photo and you will see that there is no way to get a torque ratchet on this nut. If you order this product expect it to be tough to install and difficult to mount it according to the specifications.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


The torklift tie down system is a must. I’ve had them on my GMC Denali the make loading and securing my lance camper a breeze. I just ordered a new set because I recently purchased a new ram truck and the old bracket wouldn’t fit. Not sure how it could be done with out your products.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Perfect fit. Very strong and secure. The leaf spring bolt on my 2017 F350 could only be loosened by a local diesel mechanic. The Ford dealership and corporate repair shops wouldn’t loosen it for me due to their liability concerns. The bolts that you need to feed through with the wire leads are a bit tricky. Be sure you have something like vise grips to clam onto the bolt once it is in place before you remove the wire. You don’t want it to drop back down into the frame. You also need to hold onto the end of the bolt while you hand tighten the nut until the star washer can bite enough to keep it from spinning. Then you can crank it down with your ratchet. All in all, the instructions were very good and complete. I was able to do the installation myself with just the one trip to get the passenger side leaf spring bolt started. I look forward to many years of camping with my unit securely tied down to my truck. Thanks!

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Sturdy and convenient to use, but the powder coat finish has proven to not be very durable or able to withstand typical on-road use. I think other owners may have experienced the same. I would have expected a better finish.


Comments
After a years use, I would I would purchase the TorkLift tie-downs again and recommend them to friends. Deterioration of the finish occurred early and has not noticeably progressed.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Looking good. The frame mounts arrived well packaged and in good condition.
Installation was very difficult on the 2014 f150. There are no videos covering this year of Ford. The written instructions were OK but the pictures truly are worthless, all you can see is a white stick pointing at some black object in a black picture.
Do not attempt to install these mounts by yourself on a 2014 ford f150, there isn't enough room and you don't have enough hands.
I wasted 3 hours trying to install the drivers side by myself and gave up. With my beautiful assistants help we were finally able to install the drivers side in 45 minutes. The passenger side too 45 minutes as well to install.

Once again the product looks good and arrived in great shape. Time will tell how it performs.


Comments
A year later and many miles on rough back country roads I must say these tie downs are excellent. The most the camper has moved ever was 14 inch and that was after 50 mph winds and 35 miles on what is loosely described as a road, stutter bumps, pot holes, rocks, etc.. My only regret is that I did not get these tie downs first, instead I tried other systems that failed miserably, got a dented pickup box to prove that.

Definitely love these tie downs. I can convert my truck into a camper in less than five minutes and they securely hold the slide-in no matter the road conditions or terrain we are crossing.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


4 stars, just cause of the written instructions. Could be clearer.

Product Review: F2016, 2012 Ford F250 extended cab 8' bed
I really like the Torklift front tiedowns. I didn't feel I had the skill to fab the front tiedowns. The rear however, are rather simple. 2 1/2" 1/4" wall square pipe slips inside the factory hitch receiver. I used 27" lengths. The factory Ford hitch receiver curves towards the rear axle. Drilled and tapped thru receiver and pipe to hold it. Happy with the quick service from etrailer.com!

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


They work great, but if you have full length wheel to wheel round tube nerf step bars, they will not clear them. I had to change my step bars to the cab length type. They will likely clear a flat running board, not sure. This was the only fitment issue i had.


Comments
Yes, unfortunately, these will depend greatly on needing to know the cab style, and if the truck had running boards or steps, and what kind of trailer hitch the truck has. Once you have this information you will be able to determine what tie downs will fit best for your application.

Well when the box arrived it was damaged missing parts. I think your packaging needs to be do better. Parts were loose in the box. I believe the bracket is overengineneered way to heavy.

I am sorry to hear that this arrived in this condition. Our customer service department will be getting in touch with you about a return label.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Jason was great to work with on getting the proper camper tie downs for my truck as it was a new truck and was a bit confused as to the proper application.
I had them installed within an hour. Even an armature bolt twister could do this!
I have used my camper a lot since putting these on my truck and will tell you these are THE MOST SECURE ANCHORS I have ever used on any of my trucks PERIOD!
You will not make a bad decision going with this product. I recommend these tie downs over any product available! I Don't normally give recommendations or endorse products. These I am truly impressed with.

A year later and I couldnt be happier! I stand with my previous review 100

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


The frame mounted tie-downs were easy to install and have worked perfectly. The quality of the product is good and after a winter with snow and salt there is sign of rust. While the tie-downs are a bit expensive I feel it’s worth it have a product that I don’t need to worry about.


Comments
I’ve used the vehicle specific tie downs dozens of times over the past year without a single concern or problem. Other truck camper owners have asked about the product and felt the design would work well for their situation.
