    will 1500 2wd short bed carry slide in camper

    I have a 2000 silverado 2 wd, shortbed. Was going to buy slide in truck camper, dealer said it was ok for truck, now I am not sure. It was a Palimino 1500 slide in..looks like there are issues with weight.. any ideas, comments or prev. experience? Please post.

    How much does the truck camper weigh? As long as you are under the trucks GVWR and RAWR you are good to go. Don't forget to include all the stuff you will pack in the camper.

    of course the dealer said it was ok---need to know specs of the camper with all gear packed like mlslocks said

    Used to own a FSC, now I just have my extremely old Buick.
    Have some perspective please. Thank you.

    I have seen older half tons with the older heavy campers.A lot of them were low in the back,and looked pretty sketchy in the handling department. It probably makes a difference if it is a HD 1500 or not tho.

    Its is the B1500LB?

    If so, that's alot of weight on a half ton truck, especially once you actually have it loaded for a trip. I personally wouldn't do it. But I'm pretty leery of those slide in campers.
