Camper Tie Downs for a 2,600-Lb Camper on a Ford F-250 Super Duty


Can this hold down a 2600 pound camper on a F250 SD safely? My dealer says the only safe mount is a tork lift and not a pocket mounted hold down. I am getting ready to go to Alaska for the summer and dont want to lose it.


Expert Reply:

The Brophy Camper Tie Downs, part # TDSF are a universal application for full-size trucks and they will fit a Ford F-250 Super Duty. The hardware to mount the tie downs to the vehicle is included.

I would also recommend the Brophy Camper Tie Downs, part # HSSF which is a more heavy duty tie down. The tie downs wrap around the bed, not in the stake pockets, and are mounted inside the bed. They will not work with a slide-in bed liner.

There is no weight capacity rating on the camper tie downs and they will work for any camper size that is properly sized for your vehicle. The weight capacity will be on the Brophy Camper Tie Down Hardware Package, part # TDHP that is used to attach the camper to the tie downs. The hardware package has a weight capacity of 3,000 lbs.

If the above mentioned camper tie downs are installed properly on your vehicle you will have no safety problems with your camper on your vehicle.

The Tork Lift design of camper tie downs would be the best type of tie down you could use. They bolt to the vehicles frame and are vehicle specific.

If you give me the year and bed size of your Ford F-250 Super Duty I will be able to help you get the correct Tork Lift tie downs. I will also need to know, for the rear tie downs, if you have a factory hitch or an aftermarket hitch on your vehicle and for the front tie downs if you have running boards that extend past the truck cab onto the truck bed.
