opps! yes sir! 09 slide in palomino bronco. BTW just got a 2011 2500 duramax crew cab, how do you like yours? My issue for today is: have acquired the tenting canvas that serves as windowed walls when you crank up the roof. How do you attach the canvas to the perimeter of the roof?

just so you know, the only truck campers in the FR family, is made by Palomino.
no other FR brands make TC's.

so, not many members here have a TC.
there are only a couple of members in the Truck Camper section, that have posted.
you should go there and post or PM the other owners.

I love my duramax so far!
Have not towed my 5er yet but that's soon to come.

Thanks for the tip. Just trying to get some input on reconstructing this camper. I did find another site that is helpful.

There should be a channel that the canvas slides into and have a very screws to keep it form moving once in place.

Thanks, do you just push some screws through the canvas and the rail in addition to placing the hem of the canvas in the slot? Just doesn't seem like the slot is enough support...........

Thanks Jaxs, yes some pictures of the inside showing the cabinets attached to the roof would be helpful. Basically replacing the roof of this unit. Also needs a mattress, smoke detector, CO detecter and how the vent through the roof for the commode is assembled.....Does your canvas surrounding curtain have any support on the topline other than being pressed into the slot of the rail?? Thanks

looked at mine over the weekend, it was about 80 degrees here, took it to the beach!!! The canvass just goes in the slot with very few screws in a couple of spots as you have indicated. The cabinets just screw in the top and walls. I can get you some dimensions for the screw placement, I assume there is some bracing in the roof that they attach to but I do not know for sure, do you have a 1500 LB? That way I can get you dimensions from either the front or back for screw placement.
