Truck Camper Tie-Downs on 2013 Chevrolet Silverardo


I bought my dads truck, my boss gave me a slide in camper. The truck has a plastic bed liner will the HSAB system work for me? Do I have to cut the bed liner? Because it is only a 1500 should I get the airbag suspension as well?


Expert Reply:

The Brophy Camper Tie-Downs # HSAB will not work with your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado's bed liner. If you decide to remove the bed liner they will work if the external bed rail width is less than 5-1/2 inches and there is at least 2 inches of space beneath the lip of the bed rail. You will also need the turnbuckles # TDHP.

If you prefer custom tie-downs for the camper I've linked our selection. You'll want to choose your specific bed length, cab, and trim to select the correct part for you.

It's pretty common a truck will need airbags when using a truck camper. I suggest the Firestone Ride-Rites # F2430. These will help keep the truck from sagging and ride level. You may not need them depending on the weight of the camper. So I would load the camper on the truck first to see how it rides.
