    I finally took a picture of the truck, trailer, camper and blazer all in one place at one time, loaded on the trailer, with everything together.

    It shows my Alaskan Camper mounted to my trailer with my storage boxed on both sides of the camper and then the trailer boxes I made for under the bed of the trailer.

    It's kinda bootie, but it works and it works well. My family likes it, and so do I;) :D . Sure beats sleeping in a tent, and the camper I paid $250.00! I spend $370.00 for my Cabelas tent! :blush:

    Looks like a nice setup. What's the length on your GN? Do you ever take the camper off? How much of a pita is that?

    Latex,

    The overall lenght of the gooseneck including the ramps is 25' the actual deck lenght is 20' and the ramps are 5'. The camper is permenantly attached to the deck. I do not remove the camper. The camper is an Alaskan, and uses a jack to raise and lower the camper.

    Overall, when I arrive to the camping site, I drop the ramps, drive off the trailer, and let the stabilizers down on the front of the trailer, and jack up the camper. Then I'm done. It's not a big deal at all. The camper does not come off the trailer now ever. If you notice, I have custom storage boxes on the sides of the camper, they are forever.

    Only on the day runs do I leave it up there. On the longer trips it comes down.
