How Do You Center a Truck Camper?

Centering a truck camper is an important step in the installation process. It helps to ensure that your camper is properly balanced and secure, and that you have the proper clearance for any roof racks, windows, or other items.

It also helps to reduce any potential sway while driving. Centering your camper on your truck can be done with a few simple steps.

Step 1: Measure the length of the truck bed and the overall length of the camper. You need to make sure that the camper fits properly in the truck bed, so make sure to measure both ends of the bed and not just one side. You should also take into consideration any overhang from the cab or any other items on the truck.

Step 2: Place blocks on either side of the truck bed where you want to place your camper. This will help give you an idea of where it should be placed for proper centering. You can use wood blocks or even plastic milk jugs filled with water.

Step 3: Place your camper in the middle of the blocks and adjust as necessary until it is centered exactly in between them. Make sure it is level and securely fastened down with appropriate straps.

Step 4: Once you have centered your camper, mark where it should be placed on each side with a pencil or marker. This will help ensure that it doesn’t move when you are driving.

Centering a truck camper correctly is an important part of ensuring that everything is secure and balanced correctly when traveling. By following these four simple steps you can easily center your camper for a safe and enjoyable experience out on the road.
