I realize a fleet is 7 feet long and just wondering if anyone has any experience doing this? Did you mount it all the way forward or mount to the rear and have storage to the front. Someone in Denver has one listed for free with roof damage. The rest of the pix look ok. So the price is right. hopefully not a scam!

I have no experience with a truck bed that’s longer than my camper, but I believe that having space in front of the camper is the better option. The space could be used for more secure stowage (like a box?), and ingress/egress to the camper would require less stooping. It seems flexibility lessens as one ages…

I hope it works out for you.

I reached out and never heard back from that one also..
they can't go all the way forward because of the wheel wells..
will likely need a platform to clear sides of truck (makes for great storage area)

Had an older 7.5 foot fleet on a 14 F150 6.5 bed for awhile.. worked great

I think it had been posted for all of two hours when I replied and did not get a response. Are the older Fleets 7.5 feet long? Not so short on an old 8ft Ford. This is the third FREE FWC listed on either Denver Craigslist or Marketplace. Something will workout.

I believe the Fleets were made in 3 lengths, 6.5, 7 and 7.5... Personally I have had 2 Fleets, the 7.5.. I also got a rough one that I renovated, it was super wierd, 7 feet long, but it was super skinny, like only 72 inches wide
