Exploring and testing Four Wheel Campers’ Ram 3500 truck

“What is this?” “Wow!” “Are you serious?” “This is unbelievable!” Those were just a few of the questions and comments I received when I test drove Four Wheel Campers (FWC) new vehicle/camper build. Over a four-week period, I tested the vehicle/camper in the wilds of Montana and Wyoming (view recent web article: Western Ramble on the OutdoorX4 website HERE).

The Cummins 6.7 diesel generates 1,000 pounds of torque; it “threw me back” in my seat when I stepped on the skinny pedal. With a payload of roughly 4,600 pounds, the camper is not a weight issue.

Aluminum Tray

Norweld, an Australian based company, specializes in designing and engineering aluminum trays and canopies. Brilliantly placed underneath the flatbed tray on each side are three storage compartments that offer copious amounts of storage. The tray is equipped
