    Default Looking For Some Experienced Advice; Towing Boat With Slide-in Camper

    Truck is a 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4wd, 6.0 ltr gas. with a full sized 8' bed.

    Boat is a 21' Sou'wester (Parker) cc with 175hp ob on tandem axle trailer with surge disc brakes all four wheels.

    Camper I'm looking at is a Northstar TS-1000, pop-up. This camper will extend 22" back beyond the bumper and drop down. Do I just extend the ball back an additional 22" or other ?The camper dry weight is around 1970 lbs and i have concerns about that also.

    Take at look at Lance Campers website. They show an extender for towing boats. I have a front and rear trailer hitch. For the front trailer hitch I bought an extender from Trailerparts.com. I think the extenders come in different lengths.
