Delivery and pick up next week. Finished my dual purpose camper dolly and topper storage cart. Finished the topper pulling and reinstall system. F-150 preparations bed rug removed, tailgate removed, BFG/AT E rated tires, Hellwig big wig bags and rubber bed mat. Weighing the rig with a full 36 gal of fuel at a local grain elevator. I will weigh again with the camper loaded to confirm payload.

Simple topper removal system with 1/2” x4” lag eyes. High quantity NRS clinch straps for removal and reinstalling.

This system will allow me to R+R the topper and be easy to move around. I will remove the fixture to place the camper on the dolly. The fixture can be disassembled into four components for easy storage. The high quality casters make moving it a breeze. I expect the camper to move easy also. Total time on the build eight hrs with my brother-in-laws help. Maybe a few of these pics can be helpful.

Thank you! Was blessed to have been a union carpenter/millwright for 30 years. Learned from some of finest craftsman in the Midwest. Now retired and looking to give back some of that knowledge.
