      I have an 811 on a 2013 GMC Sierra 3500 with single rear wheels. I put Firestone air springs on it and it rides fine. Without the airbags it felt soft and I took corners gently. I still don’t go over 60 mph and bad roads make me wince. Doing it again I would get a dualie AND still put air springs. GVW for my truck is a little over 11,000lb. Trick (diesel) weighs 6600 so I am just flirting with the edge with a fully loaded camper (I only fill the fresh water tank 1/3. That being said we took it across the country last summer. 8800 miles round trip without a problem.

      Sure, happy to update as I go along. Iowa and Nebraska seem to be the same – open but requiring masks. Staying the night at the Winnevega casino, owned by the Winnebago tribe. Casino is open. 15 RV spots with electric hookup only. Haven’t been in the casino yet but will mask-up and check it out in a bit. We have a truck camper too – Arctic Fox 811!

      My wife and I are traveling coast to coast (East to West) to Portland, OR for our daughter’s wedding in August. We set out July 10th and have been on the road for 4 days now. It is very pleasant so far. We boondocked each night: Once at a Harvest Hosts location in NY, Second Night at a Walmart near Eire, PA; Third night at the RV/MH Museum in Elkhart, Indiana; fourth night another Walmart in Madison, Iowa. Getting gas has been no problem, nor has going into stores to shop. We wear masks and use plenty of hand sanitizer. Even had lunch indoors at a restaurant iwith friends in Rochester, NY. We had to sign in at the hostess station with name, address, email address, phone number, and the current date (So they could track us down in case someone comes down with the virus on the day we dined there). We had to wear masks as we entered and anytime we got up to move around the restaurant (Like going to the bathroom), but once seated at our tables we could take them off. Traffic has been wonderfully light except for going through Chicago, with stop and go traffic, which felt like rush hour at any big city. We are in Fairfield, Iowa visiting friends and will stay at a Harvest Hosts winery tonight.

      THANK YOU everyone! Interesting theory that the camper is covered by truck insurance when on the truck and by home insurance when in the yard. I will have to look into that. Would love it to be true but I don’t think so, or why would my agency (Liberty Mutual) offer camper insurance as a separate product?

      I think I have enough info to find an insurer now, so thanks for the input – much appreciated.
