How Do You Put a Camper Jack on a Truck?

Putting a camper jack on a truck is not as difficult as it may seem. With the right tools and materials, anyone can do it in an afternoon. Here’s how.

Step 1: Gather Materials

The first step is to gather up the necessary materials for the job. This includes a camper jack, mounting bracket and hardware, and any other necessary tools for the job.

Step 2: Prepare Truck

Once you have all of your materials together, you will need to prep your truck for the installation. This includes removing any existing hardware or brackets that may prevent you from installing the camper jack. It’s also important to make sure that all surfaces are clean and free of debris.

Step 3: Install Camper Jack

Once your truck is prepped, you’re ready to install the camper jack. Begin by attaching the mounting bracket onto the truck frame using bolts or screws (depending on what type of bracket you have). Then attach the camper jack itself to the mounting bracket with nuts and bolts.

Step 4: Test Camper Jack

Once your camper jack is installed, it’s time to test it out. Slowly lower and raise the jack a couple times to make sure everything is working properly and that there are no leaks or other issues with the connection.


Installing a camper jack on a truck isn’t too difficult if you have all of the necessary materials and tools at hand. With just a few steps—gathering materials, preparing your truck, installing your camperjack, and testing—you can have your new setup ready for use in no time!
