Yikes. Recently replaced my tried and true 2001 Silverado with a 2013 Silverado and just discovered to my dismay that the truck bed opening at the tail gate is too narrow for my older Hawk. Also the gate opening is curved at bottom rather than right angle, further complicating things. Only four options here:
- Get a different truck ($$$)
- Get a new camper ($$$$$ + long time)
- Modify truck (cutting and welding, I don't think so)
- Modify camper, cutting rear lower side panels off and moving them in about an inch. On the right side, just storage, but the furnace is on the left.
Has anyone else had this problem or done what I am contemplating?
Of course, we were planning on leaving for a six week Baja trip the 1st of Feb... Feel free to call if you've done this Seven Oh Seven 834 Four Ate Nine Too.
