Cool! Both are great to deal with.

I went with Torklift.

Now I just need to find some fastguns turnbuckles on craigslist. There way to expensive new.

Mike,

Here is an option

As posted on one of the forums……..

“The people I bought the camper from used tie down straps to hold the camper down (see pic) from what I’ve been reading it looks like most people here are using a spring loaded turnbuckle setup. Are these straps ok to use? Something tells me they’re not very strong compared to a proper turnbuckle setup. I haven’t used these straps other than for the ride home from where I bought the camper.”

The guy who bought my last camper did the same when he picked it up. That camper was an 11’ 6”er

I will definitely keep that in mind Howie.

My camper did come with Happijac turnbuckles and I was thinking using a piece of chain to extend it to my frame mounted tie downs. What do you think about that?

That would work too
