Thanks for the replies. Feel like I’m getting closer to being dialed in with the new rig.

Somewhere I thought I read a post about putting a carpet covered 2×4 in the front of the pickup bed (rather than attaching bumpers to the front of the truck camper) to keep it from damaging the front of the truck bed. Our camper is pushed up against the front of the bed currently (and rubbing the spray on bed liner).

I thought someone on the forum advised the 2×4 solution (vs buying the rubber ones and attaching them to the camper). Anyone done this? I’d rather not drill the holes for the rubber ones.

If someone has done this, do you attach that 2×4 to the pickup bed? Or will is just stay put from the weight of the camper?

Hope this question makes sense …
