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..

The front torquelift camper mounts for my 2017 ford f150 supercab 6.5 bed required grinding resulting from interference with bed/frame mount. Lower shackle mount did not line up. Rear mounts installed with no problem.

Torklift tiedowns work great. I was worried about installing them myself but was able to do it. It was a little tricky but not too bad. Highly recommend. Installed on a 2016 Ford F-150.

2018 Ford F-150

The rear tie-downs have functioned very well, and were generally easy to install. The corresponding front tie-downs were not so easy. They did not fit exactly, probably due to the fact that my F-150 had a heavy duty suspension and extra load capacity, so the alignment of holes was not perfect. I had to do some modification that was a challenge, but I succeeded (I think!). The system has functioned just fine for a couple of trips.

Service was excellent. I called with questions and Molly answered every one accurately. I ordered the camper tie downs and they were delivered in less than 48 hours later. I installed them myself. Great product.

I installed them at home, rather than pay the shop several hundred dollars. The installation was straight forward with clear instructions. It took me 2 1/2 hours start to finish for front and rear, the same as quoted by the shop.

  • Correct Truck Bed Camper Tie-Downs for a 2018 Ford F-150
    I do have a truck bed camper tie-down option for a 2018 Ford F-150 but HappiJac does not offer the HappiJac Truck-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs for this vehicle. Instead, I recommend the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs which are actually drill-free options unlike the HappiJac Truck-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs. That said, I need to know the bed length and board/step option to confirm fit, the part # TLF2018 for front and part #TLF3007 for rear are for models with 6.5' bed, and no...

  • Camper Tie-Downs for 2018 Ford F-150 With 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    I can confirm for you that the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs - Front # TLF2018 and the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs - Rear # TLF3007 are a fit for your 2018 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 foot bed, so long as you do NOT have a board or step underneath your truck bed and do NOT have an aftermarket hitch. I have added links to video reviews of both tie-downs for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Same Front Camper Tie Down Brackets Fit a 5-1/2 and 6-1/2 Foot Bed on 2016 Ford F-150
    Camper tie downs # TLF2019 are only for the 5-1/2 foot bed and # TLF2018 are only for the 6-1/2 foot bed. They cannot be used interchangeably between the different length beds on a Ford F-150. So basically, the front tie downs will be different between the different bed lengths.

  • Is Drilling Required When Installing TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs On 2015 Ford F-150
    I called my contact at TorkLift about the installation of the Camper Tie-Downs, part # TLF2018 and part # TLF3007 on your 2015 F-150. They told me there is no drilling needed when installing the tie-downs. There are existing holes in the frame that are used for the installation.

  • Truck Bed Camper Tie-Downs for a 2016 Ford F-150 Short Bed
    The product page you were looking at is a combination page of truck bed camper tie-downs, parts # TLF2018 for the front and # TLF3007 for the rear. They fit your 2016 Ford F-150 as long as you have a 6-1/2 foot bed and you don't have a step under the truck. Together both kits weigh about 65 pounds total for shipping. So subtract a few pounds for the shipping materials but not a lot.

  • Fit of TorkLift Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs TLF2018 & TLF3007 on 2016 Ford F-150 w/ 6-1/2-ft Bed
    Both of the TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs you referenced, parts # TLF2018 and # TLF3007, are confirmed fits on your 2016 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2-foot bed if it is either a Crew cab or a Super cab. It will not fit a regular cab version according to my contact at Torklift. The under-bed step will need to be removed for installation. Written installation details are linked for you.

  • Torklift Front and Rear Camper Tie Downs for 2015 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2-Foot Bed
    TorkLift and etrailer cannot actually recommend using only front tie downs on any slide-in camper, even if it is a very light one. Sure, you may have seen folks do this and they may have had no issues at all. But in the worst-case scenario where you have an incident and there is damage or injury to you or someone else, the absence of the rear tie-downs could make for some ugliness. I wish I could say go-for-it but I can't. The front/rear tow down set # TLF2018 and # TLF3007 that...

  • Truck Bed Camper Tie Downs for a 2016 F150 Super Cab Truck
    With your front sidewall being 6" wide you won't be able to use the truck bed style tie downs like you were wanting because they are only 5-1/4" in length. Instead I recommend the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs - Front # TLF2018 and TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs - Rear # TLF3007. I also recommend TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs - Stainless Steel - Black - Qty 4 Item # TLS9529-2-LK.

  • Can the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs Be Used On a Ford F-150 with Aluminum Bed
    We have spoken with Brophy in the past and for a Ford F-150 with aluminum body such as your 2017 model they recommend using the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs part # HSSF. There won't be any issues with these tie downs and an aluminum bed so long as you are not exceeding other figures such as payload capacity etc. In order to secure the truck bed camper to these tie-downs you will also need the Brophy Basic Turnbuckles w/ Hardware for Camper Tie-Downs part # TDHP.

    Since you do not have the a board or step underneath the vehicle and have a factory hitch on the 2018 Ford F-150 the rear TorkLift Tie-Downs part # TLF3007 do not require drilling into the frame for installation. They will install into the existing holes of your truck frame.
