Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

My 72 c20 longhorn with a 72 Sportsman camper. The springs handle the load but that unboxed old style frame has a whole lot of sway in it.

That's a lot of weight mounted high, which has increases the moment of inertia. If it doesn't have a rear stabilizer bar, it should. Even after just putting Firestone Transforce tires on my truck, I noticed over steer with the new camper shell, even though I run 10 PSI higher pressure in the rear tires. Didn't have that problem with the old Michelins, but they don't make that size any more. It's a problem, even with the equalizer hitch. Since I tow a 26 foot travel trailer, I'll be balancing out the suspension with a rear stabilizer bar.

No need for boxed frames. These frames were quite strong. My camper was a bit smaller than yours but my '71 Custom Camper rode flat and stable with the camper mounted and loaded up. Maybe the springs are tired (leaf, right?) or shocks are bad. Also, it appears to be slid back from the cab close to a foot. That will cause sway due to poor weight distribution. Is the bumper in the way of sliding it up? I didn't have a rear stabilizer, but I did slap 33/12.50s on 9.75 rims on when I bought it. Wider tires would do wonders for your truck.

Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Pulling my “trash trailer “. I remodel kitchens and bathrooms and throw anything that won’t burn in it. Finally took some time to show it a little attention. New tires, painted the wheels and sideboards and cleaned it up. Hopefully good to go for a while.

That's a long horn too. One ton frame. Mine had that gap too. Did they even make a camper to fit that 8 1/2' bed? -BA

Yup. I have one on mine.

I think that I have solved the mystery of not having "Longhorn" emblems on the fenders. The bed is tweaked a little, so it was probably hit sometime before '73 when my FiL bought it. He's never mentioned it getting hit, that's why I say before. Can't ask him, since he died 9 years ago. Whoever did the body work probably just left the trim off. The SPID says 133" wheel base, so it's a true Longhorn. I'll check someday if it has bondo or braze there.

I kept looking and still wasn't sure if it was a Longhorn. Didn't think it was. But, yeah, some companies for that time period made a model specific for Longhorns.

Nice rig. That's the first one I've seen that fits.

Your truck, your guess, Steve, but I'm inclined to think they just failed to install the emblems. Their used to be an ochre Longhorn here in town that didn't show any sign of ever having the emblems.

BTW, that truck and camper looks great.
