How Do You Level a Slide in Truck Camper?

Having a truck camper is a great way to explore the outdoors and have your home on the road. But if you’ve ever experienced the frustration of trying to level your slide out camper, you know it can be a challenge. To ensure your camper is secure and won’t shift or move during travel, it’s important to take the time to level it properly.

The first step in leveling a slide out truck camper is setting up stabilizing jacks. These jacks should be installed in all four corners of the camper and then adjusted until they are all at the same height.

This will provide a stable base on which to level the camper. Once you have the jacks set, you can start working on leveling the slide out.

To do this:

  1. Measure: Use a leveler or spirit level and measure each side of the slide out, taking note of any differences in height.
  2. Adjust: Adjust each corner jack until both sides of the slide out are at an even height.
  3. Check: Check your work by using a leveler or spirit level again to ensure everything is even.
  4. Secure: After everything is leveled, use wheel chocks or blocks of wood around the tires for extra security.

When you’re finished leveling your truck camper, don’t forget to double-check that all of your jacks are secure and that nothing has shifted while you were working. This will help ensure that your camper stays secure while you’re traveling and won’t shift or move during transit.


Leveling a slide out truck camper can be tricky but with proper preparation, measurements, adjustments and securing it will stay put while on the road. Taking these steps will help keep you safe while traveling and make sure that your camper doesn’t shift or move during transit.
