A Safe Ride is a Comfortable Ride

If you're looking for the best tie-downs for your camper, frame-mounted is the way to go. The frame is the most solid part of your entire vehicle, so it just makes sense to attach your camper to something that's not going to warp, bend, or twist. Even more importantly, the camper's center of gravity will sit lower and its weight will be spread across the entire bed. This avoids a top-heavy load perched on top of your bed rails that's liable to sway and get pushed around by crosswinds. The camper's not going to shift or slide around while you drive; it's going to stay put, and your truck is going to handle just like it does without a camper.


Quick Tip: If you have a plastic or spray-in bed liner, it's important that you use a rubber mat under the camper to eliminate any sliding or bouncing.


Don't Ruin Your Truck's Looks

how will tork lift tie downs look on my truck

Frame-mounted tie-downs are also a great pick for preserving your truck's good looks. The brackets install on the frame, tucked nearly flush with the underside of the vehicle. Remove the arms from the brackets when you're not hauling your camper, and the brackets will be barely visible.


Custom Fit, No-Drill Installation

Completely custom to your vehicle, the tie-downs attach to exisiting holes in your frame so that there's little to no drilling and no need for any modifications. Because they're custom, you'll want to use our in-house application guide to make sure you get the exact right model. The tie-downs you need might be different depending on what type of hitch or other accessories you have.


how to find the right tie down for my truck - custom camper tiedown

Securing Your Camper

TorkLift Tie Down Example

Once the tie-downs are installed, use a set of turnbuckles (sold separately) to secure the camper to the tie-downs. The shank on each arm has 2 pin holes so you can choose how far out they extend, that way the turnbuckles can reach the anchors on your camper without making contact with your truck. Tighten the turnbuckles to the correct level of tension (not too tight!).


where to put camper tie downs

Make sure the anchor points are offset from the tie-downs instead of lined up with them so that they will hold your camper from multiple angles. This is important for keeping your camper from shifting. Two holes in the attachment plate of the tie-downs let you find the best angle for you camper anchors.

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at TorkLift's line of custom frame mounted camper tie downs for the front. You want to verify here at etrailer.com using our fit guide, which ones work best for your vehicle. There are sets also available that will fit your vehicle available for the rear. These custom mounted brackets are going to provide an easy attachment point to hook up your camper.What's additionally great about those is that they have the removable ends. So when you're not using it, they'll be hidden away, and your vehicle will look like factory. The custom mounted brackets we're engineered to provide you with the best location for your tie down point to even distribute the load.

So, once they're attached, and adjusted. This'll keep your camper from being too top heavy. This'll increase the overall ride quality while you're campers attached, and the safety. It's made of a durable steel with a black powder coat finish, which'll ensure that you have a strong attachment point, and it'll be highly resistant to corrosion.When you are ready to use them, you can just slide in the attachment point. There's two points here to attach your turn buckles, and here on the shaft there are two points that will give you an adjustment inward, and outward, to specifically fit your camper.

So, you can use this hole for a wider camper, or this hole for an aero camper. Once you've got your appropriate hole, slide the pin through, and bring the latch over, and lock it in place. Then you can attach your turn buckles.Now if you need some turn buckles you can pick them up here at etrailer.com. There are many a different styles. From chain types, to quick attach lever types.

Our style is going to a be a threaded rod type that will hook to your camper, and down to our attachment point. We'll adjust it snug by turning our turn buckle here. With our passenger side done, we'll repeat that same step on our driver's side.Compared to stake pocket, our bumper mounted camper tie downs, frame mounted tie downs will provide better handling. They also mount out of sight, giving your truck a cleaner look, because the custom fit brackets secure tight against your trucks frame there is no loss of ground clearance. That completes our look at TorkLift's line of custom frame mounted camper tie downs for the front..

The order was ready to place and staff was professional. My parts came in within a week, which is sooner than promised. Instructions were pretty vague but it was apparent as to what goes where. I'm only giving 4 stars because I had a bolt that wouldn't go through and lock the brace in place properly. After a couple of tries,and a couple of removals, I found that a collet weld was off, preventing the bolt from going in as it should. I considered ordering a new item but was leaving town the next day, so I managed to drill and file away the offending steel and make it work. Other than 1 star off for QA inspection, the unit worked great.



by:

These are easy to install, fit correctly, and do exactly what they are supposed to do. But they cost twice as much as they should for 4 pieces of welded steel. After one year, we'll see how many more Wisconsin winters they can take before they rust through.



by:

I had the mountings professionally attached to the frame. The hatches can be easily removed when not in use( and I would recommend that to keep them from being stolen). Using chains and turnbuckles, I feel very comfortable with my truck camper staying where it is.. does not rock, very solid.
It’s nice to feel secure about my camper staying firmly attached.
It was worth the investment.



by:

TLN3404 installed on 2016 Titan XD. Very sturdy product, hardware was short by (2) 1/2” flat washers, (6 shown on instructions, 4 in package)no big deal there. Install goes fast with an impact gun. 3/4”(19mm) and 17mm sockets plus a 3/4 wrench req. tip: if you have a small magnet, width of a pencil, you can easily capture the flange nuts. My driver’s side clears the 6” exhaust tip by a 1/4”, should be fine. Directions are straightforward.



by:

Great quality product. Arrived on time. Drivers side took a little longer because of fuel tank skid plate removal. Overall very sanitary application.



by:

The units appeared to be well made and were nicely painted. I installed them on my F150. The tools and hardware supplied were of good quality and installation was straight forward. Two people would have been great, but I was able to install both sides in a little less than an hour. The holes all line up very well. I like these better than the previous units I had on my 2013, as they do not stick out as far - so less noticeable. The extension arms come out at a very nice angle just under the body. I find these units with quality I expected and I think they will be highly functional in attaching my camper.

I like to thank Lori with etrailer and guiding me through the process of getting , Front and rear,
Torklift Camper Tie-downs -Custom Frame Mounts. Well doing research this was the best way to go for tying down and stabilizing a camper. Torklift camper tie-downs are solid well built!
I had ordered Mounts on Monday and received them on Friday . I Had the tie-downs on my , 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 by Saturday. The whole process was awesome , real easy installation. Great help with videos and instructions on mounting tie-downs on my truck provided by etrailer. I’m going to use them on my pop-up Hallmark Camper. Thank you for all your help etrailer.



by:

Easy install and just a great product. Install took 90 minutes for front and rear mounts.



by:

Significantly overpriced for what it is and on top of that it’s terrible quality!
They were installed on the truck for 2 weeks, and used once when they’ve already started to rust. Even if they were made of stainless steel it’s overpriced for what you get.
When I contacted etrailer about a warranty they directed me to TorkLift. At first they were just going to send me a can of paint to address the rust issue. After I threatened to leave a poor, but realistic review they sent me a replacement set.
I’d say to wholeheartedly avoid this product but the problem is there aren’t other options…. And they know it…. Which allows charge whatever they want.



by:

Great product but drivers side hole F on directions is none existent on the 2023 f250. Not sure if it’s safe to use being that the passenger side has the same issue but they supply an extra bracket that utilizes another factory hole so it’s got more support. Needs to be updated for 2023 models.



by:

Great product, installation took about 2 hours. Videos were helpful in explaining the sequence of install



by:

This is my second set for the TorkLift tie-downs, and I would not use any other type. We use it daily; our camper never comes off as we are constantly on the move. In the event we have to remove it for vehicle service such as alignment, it is easy to remove and get back on.



by:

Rear tie downs for my 2001 tundra little more complicated to install than front by myself because you had to wedge between of tight access and old hitch receiver and frame. Although, once installed… worth every penny. Having camper attached to frame makes for less too heavy and more off-road capable. Drives fine in wind at 75mph



by:

Jason was great to work with on getting the proper camper tie downs for my truck as it was a new truck and was a bit confused as to the proper application.
I had them installed within an hour. Even an armature bolt twister could do this!
I have used my camper a lot since putting these on my truck and will tell you these are THE MOST SECURE ANCHORS I have ever used on any of my trucks PERIOD!
You will not make a bad decision going with this product. I recommend these tie downs over any product available! I Don't normally give recommendations or endorse products. These I am truly impressed with.



by:

I was completely impressed with the fitment and overall quality of these Tie-Downs. I ordered them on-line they came quickly and I had them on the truck within a couple of hours with no problems at all, amazing! These things are very sturdy and well-built.



by:

The rear Torklift camper tie down instructions and install were straight forward and an easy install. However, the front Torklift camper tie down instructions and install was difficult. The instructions were not clear and the photos of the install included on the instructions were very poor quality. Additionally, the instructions said to torque the bolts but there was not sufficient room to get a torque ratchet on the bolt. In fact it was very difficult to even get two of the nuts on the bolt. Look at the attached photo and you will see that there is no way to get a torque ratchet on this nut. If you order this product expect it to be tough to install and difficult to mount it according to the specifications.



by:

Perfect fit. Very strong and secure. The leaf spring bolt on my 2017 F350 could only be loosened by a local diesel mechanic. The Ford dealership and corporate repair shops wouldn’t loosen it for me due to their liability concerns. The bolts that you need to feed through with the wire leads are a bit tricky. Be sure you have something like vise grips to clam onto the bolt once it is in place before you remove the wire. You don’t want it to drop back down into the frame. You also need to hold onto the end of the bolt while you hand tighten the nut until the star washer can bite enough to keep it from spinning. Then you can crank it down with your ratchet. All in all, the instructions were very good and complete. I was able to do the installation myself with just the one trip to get the passenger side leaf spring bolt started. I look forward to many years of camping with my unit securely tied down to my truck. Thanks!



by:

The torklift tie down system is a must. I’ve had them on my GMC Denali the make loading and securing my lance camper a breeze. I just ordered a new set because I recently purchased a new ram truck and the old bracket wouldn’t fit. Not sure how it could be done with out your products.



by:

Definitely love these tie downs. I can convert my truck into a camper in less than five minutes and they securely hold the slide-in no matter the road conditions or terrain we are crossing.



by:

Product did not fit correctly need modifications spoke with TorkLift. They are looking into the problem. Very disappointing would not buy again.



by:

4 stars, just cause of the written instructions. Could be clearer.

Product Review: F2016, 2012 Ford F250 extended cab 8' bed
I really like the Torklift front tiedowns. I didn't feel I had the skill to fab the front tiedowns. The rear however, are rather simple. 2 1/2" 1/4" wall square pipe slips inside the factory hitch receiver. I used 27" lengths. The factory Ford hitch receiver curves towards the rear axle. Drilled and tapped thru receiver and pipe to hold it. Happy with the quick service from etrailer.com!



by:

The drivers rear didn't get built correctly. the hole to put the tie done is missing. I had to drill a hole into the tie down so I could use it. Didn't notice the problem until I went to put the camper on my pickup. The other three are fine.



by:

We previously bought a truck camper and older truck with tie downs. A year ago we decided to upgrade to a new truck which of course meant buying and installing new TorkLift tiedowns. After some hand wringing I made the appropriate purchase and took the next step of installing them. I did feel reassured that the product was set up for our specific truck. Although I do some work on the camper and all I am not a mechanic so I will say this product was a cinch to install.



by:

Fairly easy to enstall good fit and fin ish.



by:

I have done business with etrailer several times. The products are always as advertised and never arrive with disappointments. Everything comes in a timely manner and the company communicates well. Right after I received this latest shipment I discovered something else I needed on the truck I had just purchased. So back to etrailer I went and sent another order. Repeat orders lets you know that this is a good company to deal with.
