TorkLift Frame-Mounted Truck Camper Tie-Downs versus Clamp-On Type for 2017 Ram 1500  


Are the super heavy duty truck camper tie down compatible with a 2017 Ram 1500 quad cab with 64inch box? Im looking at campers up to 1600 lbs and am concerned about bending the box walls with the clamp on system. Also whether they would fit. Thanks for the time. My friend is also interested with the same truck but 2018.


Expert Reply:

A frame-mounted camper tie-down system will generally be a better option than a clamp-on type since it uses the strength of the truck's frame to secure the slide-in camper. For your 2017 Ram 1500 we have a number of such frame-mount kits from TorkLift that appear on the linked page.

The fit of the front and rear tie-downs depends on the truck's overall configuration including bed length, hitch type and whether or not there is a step under the bed. You can use the Select Vehicle Style menu tool at the top of the page to choose your truck's overall setup; then you see only the compatible kits. The same type of link is provided for your friend's 2018 Ram.

As an example, for a 2017 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2-foot bed without board or step underneath truck bed and with a factory installed hitch you can use front and rear parts # TLD2134 and # TLD3107.
