We had a custom build at Phoenix Popup, AKA Coyote RV. http://www.phoenixcampers.com/ They do everything, hard-side, pop-up, rag-tops. We could not be happier with our custom rig which sounds about as spartan as what you are thinking of. Contact me off-forum if you would be interested is seeing our rig in detail.

>>>Did you experience much in the way of ride harshness when you moved to the E rated tires? I would still do E rated tires, but I might consider moving from the factory 20” wheels to 18” wheels <<<
I never drove the truck with other than “E” tires, so can’t comment on harshness of ride.. it went straight from the dealer to Les Schwab tires for the swap. The ride seems fine to me. I have the stock 17″ steel wheels. I think 18″ and especially 20″ wheels are strictly fashion accessories.

I have a Ram 1500 with a mounted Phoenix Pop-up camper. Fully loaded the rig is about 500 lbs overweight, pretty much the same situation as yours. I immediately changed out the tires to “E” rating.. based on previous experience. Coming up on 35000 miles; never a tire problem. I also installed Timbren DRTT1500 SES Rubber springs and have been really happy with them. These replace the jounce bumpers and are permanent.. Air Bags are useful if you take the camper on and off, but ours stays on all the time. Truck handles just fine.

Our Allstate insurance covers our new slide-in camper at no additional premium. All we had to do was supply them with a copy of the invoice, showing what we paid. We have both our auto & home insurance with them,.. don’t know if that makes a difference.
