Thanks for your reply. I am not really good with tools or repairing cars however I do own a class a rv so I am familiar with the basics of how a camper works.
I am looking to buy a truck camper with a dry weight of no more than 2800 pounds and so far the Bigfoot 1500 series has my eye. I am also interested in Hallmarks and Northern Lites. I believe the 3/4 ton truck will be enough truck to handle these campers but I have heard that the Chevrolet Silverado does not have much of a payload.
