One more stability tip, replace the factory stabilizers, the Princess Auto ones are made of much heavier steel.
Do you have any pic`s of your camper? Sounds like you have some nice mods done.

The A122 SXR is very nice. But the first thing I would change is to remove the big "Rockwood" sticker on the front roof panel. That goes beyond pride of the manufacturer into billboard territory. I don't spend $12K to serve as a billboard.

camper pics

Here are the pics, none with the box installed. The bracket sure is purdy though. The only tricky part is finding a new home for the spare tire. I'm thinking of a 4runner style crank, up under the propane tank. The tong is quite high.

Are they using a different frame under that model than the a122 or just a lift block for bigger tires? Sure looks nice. Congrats

Thanks for the photos. Great looking camper and that site is the money.

I agree with the big Billboard on the roof, I am looking at replacing that with a custom vinyl image. My new camper would really look like a Billboard because it won`t have any windows to break up all of the surface area.

I am not sure, but I would guess that it is the standard frame with a riser lift. I like the thought of having a 15'' tire with a MT tread pattern to protect against punctures, it also opens up a better selection of tires to choose from. The important thing is that it looks cool

It's the standard frame, I did the lift myself. Here is a thread about a dealer installed lift and my own lift.

here is a radio swap too.

I didn't think that FR would sink the money in to a separate, low production, frame when risers would do the same job on a "standard" frame.

Since I have zero experience welding I plan on visiting Roberts Sales in Denver this summer and taking a look at their riser kits.

Stopped by the dealer to take care of some questions and paperwork, I should be picking it up next Tuesday. Took a few photos of the camper in the back lot, it was raining pretty hard so I didn`t bother opening it up.
