camper won't fit on 2017 dodge
« on: August 24, 2017, 11:38:32 PM »
I'm a little frustrated. I have a 2001 Dodge 3500 Dually that I have used with my Lance camper for years. So I already have the swing brackets for the front jacks.

I just purchased a new 2017 3500 Dually, and the fender flairs are wider than the 2001. Wide enough, that I can't back the truck under without damage. I tried to day for the first time, I had the passenger side touching the jack, and only had 1/16 inch gap max, on the driver side.

I called and stopped by the lance factory on the way home and they say that there are no alternative swing brackets that help the situation. MY BS alert went off.

I can believe that a truck design that has been around for years (I'll bet that the 15, 16 models are the same).

What swing brackets are people using with their late model dodge?

I have seen a swing jack back when I had a truck camper with the same issue. Sorry I don't remember the brand. I do remember, what I thought was way over priced. I made my own with heavy duty butt hinges. I only needed two to get the front jacks past the fender.

Good luck, Tom
