Recommended Camper Tie Downs for 2013 Ford F150


I want to mount a Northstar TS 1000 which is 9ft, 6 inches in length. This camper weights 1900 lbs. Which tie downs are best? TDSF or HSSF.


Expert Reply:

According to my contact at CR Brophy, the # TDSF tie downs are not compatible with 2011 or newer trucks, but their # HSSF tie-downs would indeed be compatible with your truck, as long as it has a regular (not stepside) bed. Drop in (hard plastic) bed liners will need to be extensively trimmed but spray-on liners are not a problem. You will also need a hardware package, part # TDHP.

If installing the camper causes the rear of the truck to squat, a suspension enhancement product like the Timbren # TFR1504D for 4WD models or # TFR1502D for 2WD models would do a great job of supporting the extra weight.

I have linked you to a product demonstration video for the # HSSF tie-downs.
