OK, so I've had it a couple of months, but there were things to be done, a truck to acquire, and we just returned from a three week trip around Utah in our new truck & camper. So, here's the story, a bit at a time.
Looked around for a few months, lost out on a couple, passed on a couple. Then, a Hawk turned up about 15 miles from home. Yeah! Except, I was out of town for the weekend! Ouch! It all worked out, and I found myself on the way to pick up our new camper the following Monday. Oh, since I was shopping used campers, I hadn't updated my pickup yet. Used my '77 F250 "Camper Special" to pick it up - a 6 foot Hawk in an 8 foot bed. No problem. I brought along a couple of big straps, and left the tailgate on to keep it from exiting the rear. A quick spacer in front the camper from scrap ply & 2x4's will keep it from sliding forward should an emergency stop be required.
