A Safe Ride is a Comfortable Ride

If you're looking for the best tie-downs for your camper, frame-mounted is the way to go. The frame is the most solid part of your entire vehicle, so it just makes sense to attach your camper to something that's not going to warp, bend, or twist. Even more importantly, the camper's center of gravity will sit lower and its weight will be spread across the entire bed. This avoids a top-heavy load perched on top of your bed rails that's liable to sway and get pushed around by crosswinds. The camper's not going to shift or slide around while you drive; it's going to stay put, and your truck is going to handle just like it does without a camper.

Quick Tip: If you have a plastic or spray-in bed liner, it's important that you use a rubber mat under the camper to eliminate any sliding or bouncing.

Don't Ruin Your Truck's Looks

how will tork lift tie downs look on my truck

Frame-mounted tie-downs are also a great pick for preserving your truck's good looks. The brackets install on the frame, tucked nearly flush with the underside of the vehicle. Remove the arms from the brackets when you're not hauling your camper, and the brackets will be barely visible.

Custom Fit

Because they're custom, you'll want to use our in-house application guide to make sure you get the exact right model. The tie-downs you need might be different depending on what type of hitch or other accessories you have.

how to find the right tie down for my truck - custom camper tiedown

Securing Your Camper

TorkLift Tie Down Example

Once the tie-downs are installed, use a set of turnbuckles (sold separately) to secure the camper to the tie-downs. The shank on each arm has 2 pin holes so you can choose how far out they extend, that way the turnbuckles can reach the anchors on your camper without making contact with your truck. Tighten the turnbuckles to the correct level of tension (not too tight!).

where to put camper tie downs

Make sure the anchor points are offset from the tie-downs instead of lined up with them so that they will hold your camper from multiple angles. This is important for keeping your camper from shifting. Two holes in the attachment plate of the tie-downs let you find the best angle for you camper anchors.

Delivery was fast. Works perfectly for our Lance slide-in camper.


I originally ordered the incorrect rear Torklifts camper hold downs for my truck. However, I called etrailer and explained my error. They not only helped me pick the correct ones, they sent them out that day. I haven’t installed the rear TC hold downs yet. I was most impressed with the free shipping both ways with no questions asked! I was issued an RMA and the refund came quickly. Very good customer service in an age when there often isn’t any service , let alone great service. The front mounts fit perfectly!


Easy to install. Good quality construction. Great customer care when I ordered the incorrect version - was well handled.



Still working great after a year. No issues.


Installed on a Curt 2 1/2 receiver just put on my F350 SD Supercab Diesel SRW 4x4. This bracket does fit this truck with the Curt receiver. I found a little oil on the drill bits and a reamer to remove the last bit of metal from the holes in the receiver helped mount the brackets.


Super easy to install, I recommend using some masking tape on the hitch to mark where you want to install these.


looks good, easy to install and replaced the torklift tie downs used on factory hitch, now I have a 20,000 lb trailer hitch with 2,700 GTW also. and camper is secure.

Edward J.


Fantastic, just like they were claimed to do


After reviewing my options to hold a 3500lb trailer on my truck. I decided these were the only option. They are more expensive then the other options that bolt to the body and the bumper, But much more secure.
The install was fairly easy, Customer service from etrailer was awesome. When not in use they are barely visible. Great product, worth every penny!
Thanks again


Nicole at etrailer was sharp and the products - 5 stars for her

The Torklift instruction pictures are poor - look like they have been copied 100 times.
Front brackets were fairly straight forward - but had to remove a skid plate and loosen the fuel tank to install the drivers side.
Rear brackets needed to drill holes. T L should provide a drill template.

Haven’t used with the camper yet.


Paula, thank you for helping me out, you are the best!!!!!!!!!


Both the product and the service are top notch. I ordered the front and rear tie-downs for a 2006 Silverado. The easy to follow instructions made it easy to install the customized tie downs. We have been on the road several times since I installed the tie downs and all the miles I've traveled were with confidence that my camper was secure.

Oh, the other great feature is that they are removable when not in use.

Thank you etrailer!


Part of an order I made for camper tie-downs. Great product and it shipped extremely fast!

I always go to e-trailer first when looking for truck towing or other truck accessories. The customer service and speed of shipping really can’t be beat.


Very fast and affordable shipping to AL ASKA!


Solid, easy to install. etrailer is the only site i even look at now.


These safety downs are easy to install, and are a huge safety bonus. The interlocking pin prepares truck for winter in a few seconds. E-trailer, in this case
Julie, answered all questions, very professional, and was a big help , Thanks


They perfectly and I received them really quick for no additional cost. Will definitely keep etrailer on my list for any truck or trailer needs.


Worked perfectly! Just as advertised. Great product!


yeehoo! fast and what i wanted. Originally when I bought these via mechanic they were listed as TLR 35. Some computer systems delete extra zeros, but 3500 and 35 are the same.


They fit perfect, fast and easy


Perfect fit to the truck. Easy install. Exactly what was needed.


Extremely pleased and satisfied with the customer service I received. When there was a problem with getting my product they contacted me on Sunday and took care of all my needs. Thank you so much.


This is a great product easy to install works super good

    We do not have a custom tie-down kit for your 1984 Chevrolet pickup but I may have a solution for you. I called my contact at TorkLift and they told me that you can look under the front of yoru truck bed near the cab and see if you have a 4x4 inch space available, you can install part # TLR3500. You would need to drill through the 4x4 space on your frame to mount the tie-downs for your camper. For the rear you can use the same tie-downs but you will need the same 4x4 inch space on each...

  • Rear Tie-Down Recommendation for My 2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    When determining if rear Torklift tie-downs are available for your 2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty, it truly depends on your bed length, what hitch model you have installed (if any), or if you have a board/step underneath your truck. For example, if you have a 6-3/4' bed with a non-Torklift aftermarket hitch with a board or step underneath your bed, the rear Torklift tie-downs you would need are the # TLR3500. In order to determine if any are available for your 2006 Ford F-350, feel free to...

  • When Using an Extension Would Upgrading the Factory Hitch Increase my Towing Capacity
    Yes, the B and W Heavy Duty Hitch Receiver, # BWHDRH25230, on your 2008 Ford F250 would be strong enough to handle your boat as long as it's tongue weight is 1600 pounds or less when fully loaded. Just a reminder, you always want to follow the weight limitations of the component with the lowest rating. This also includes staying within the towing limits of your truck. I am estimating that your extension at 34 inches has a tongue weight rating of 450 pounds. If this is correct, upgrading...
