There are plenty of things you wouldn’t use glue to hold something down, and your truck camper shouldn’t be one of them! Instead, upgrade your current tie downs to Torklift frame mounted tie downs for extra safety while hauling. Need an example? Read below about Sher Jennings and her friend’s hard lesson about using the right kind of tie downs the first time.

Don't let this happen to your truck camper!

Alternative tie downs lose to the wind

A few years ago, Sher Jennings shared a story with us about a discussion she had with a friend who had previously urged her to try an alternate brand of tie downs. Then heavy winds hit hard that afternoon. On the way back from the Pendleton Roundup, Sher’s friend was hauling her truck camper to the Gorge with their brand new $45,000 truck.

When they arrived at their destination, both the driver and the passenger were stressed and fearful of the damage that was caused to their camper. She then asked them, “why did you spend so much money on a new truck and $30,000 on a new camper but settled for a cheaper alternate brand of tie downs?” Sher then explained how using an alternate brand of tie downs is like trying to secure your camper using Elmer’s glue.

Torklift tie downs are much more secure than glue!

It’s important that when you’re going to be investing a lot of money on a truck and camper system that you have parts that are going to be strong enough to protect and maintain its value. Torklift has tie downs that will do just that!
