Do you know what the length of the camper is or what size truck bed you had it in? From what I could find, it looks like these years might have come in a few different lengths.

The part of the camper that sits in the bed is 7'7". Old Fleets only came in one length AFAIK.The were made to fit long bed midsize trucks like the Toyota (back when they only made one pick up). With a little thinking they will fit a lot of different trucks.I have a 86 model Fleet and it has been on 3 different full size trucks. Dodge 2500 with a flatbed,2000 K2500 ccsb and a 2000 K3500 cclb. Usually a platform needs to be fabbed for a full size truck. I used 3 4x4's and a sheet of plywood to make it fit in the GM's. If you need any more measurements just ask. I have a hand written and drawn file of most old Fleet measurements.

Great price.

Ah, bummer. So you're saying in order to not have overhang onto the tailgate I'd need an 8 foot bed, right?

With an 8' bed you can close the tailgate with the camper in the bed. What bed do you have ? I have seen them in short beds with the tailgate down. I  was wrong on post above. I did not have the Fleet on the 2000 K2500 ccsb. I sold that truck before I got the camper.

Currently looking for a project FWC to work on until I get a newer F150. Debating between the short bed, which won't leave me with many options for campers, or the 6.5 foot bed. But, ideally I want to take off the tailgate and not have any overhang. Sounds like an older fleet won't work then.

Sigh, does anyone else remember when "short bed" meant 6.5' ?

 

:P  :rolleyes:

This camper fits an 8 ft bed. I had it in a 1995 tacoma.
