Recommended Tie Down Options for a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500


Hi, I need help selecting the proper tie downs for my truck bed camper. I have a 2006 dodge 3500 hd with dual rear wheels. Thank you.

The best truck bed camper tie down option we have for you is one that mounts to the vehicle's frame. In order to recommend a frame mounted camper tie down option for you I would need to know the bed size, cab type, whether or not you have step boards and what type of hitch you have installed. Once provided I can then offer you my recommendation. In order to secure your truck bed camper to the frame mounted tie downs, I recommend using the TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs part # TLS9529-2-LK.

For a bed mounted tie down, I recommend using the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs part # HSAB. As long as your external bed rail width does not exceed 5-1/2", and you have at least 2" of space beneath lip of your bed rail then they will work well for you.

If the width of your external bed rail is more than 5-1/2" or you do not have 2" of space beneath the lip of bed rail, you will want to use the Brophy Stake Pocket Mounted Camper Tie Downs part # TDSF. As long as your truck bed has stake pockets then these will also work well for you.

In order to secure your truck bed camper to either of these bed mounted tie downs, I recommend using the Brophy Basic Turnbuckles w/ Hardware for Camper Tie-Downs part # TDHP.
