Title: Loading guides

Hi, is there a problem with building permanent loading guides the length of the pickup box to keep the camper from moving around on rough roads.   
Thanks

Welcome to the forum.
Do you have all four corners anchored real good with turnbuckles?  I had a truck camper a couple years ago and never had any issues with it moving around.
Loading rails would work but I bet it would be a bear to load the camper. You would have to be right on perfect so you could load it.

Hi, yes I have happy jack quick loads with torklift frame mount tie downs. The camper is on a rubber bed mat also. I want to build a containment for the wheel well area and was thinking of making it as wide as I can and have it serve two + purposes. But am curious of the drawbacks and potential problems with the idea. Thanks for your input it's greatly appreciated.
