Do Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs Have A Weight Capacity  


I have installed a set of these on my 2011 Ford F350 long bed dully, and they look great. I carry an Artic Fox 811 with slide out, weighs in at 3100 lbs dry. Can you tell me what the weight limit is for these tie downs? I have taken it on one shot trip, about 300 miles and the camper does not move at all, works great even at 70 mph, but I am still concerned as no ratings are published. Also, due to the way the front corners of the truck bed are built out I had to install the front tie downs behind the camper tie down not in front of them so I placed the rear ones in front to counter act this. Is this OK? Thanks


Expert Reply:

There is no weight capacity for the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs # HSSF.

The tie-down hardware kit # TDHP, that is used to secure the camper to the # HSSF tie-downs has a weight capacity of 3,000-lbs.

My contact at Brophy said the tie-downs will handle the camper and the concern would be if the truck capacity was not able to handle it, but with an F-350 you should have no issue.

Since the front tie-down is behind the camper tie-down, the rear tie-down must be forward of the camper rear tie-down to compensate for the front tie-downs.
