Thanks for this thread. I just bought a 2019 NorthStar 8.5 Adventurer with the detachable wrap-around rear end, which we like for the storage. It goes on my 2018 Ram 3500 6’4″ bed and I am able to leave the tailgate on, but in able to do so, the dealer rigged me up with some 2×4’s in the bed and he added another 2×4 bumper in the front to move the camper back 1.5 inches. So now the tailgate cables just barely touch the bottom corners of the wrap-around storage boxes, and the cabover bunk is just 3″ from my truck roof. With so many NorthStar owners on this forum, I was wondering if anyone else came across this issue and if so, how did they resolve it? Camper and rig seem to ride OK.
