Erickson Anchors as Camper Tie-Downs For 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD


I want to use Erickson HD anchor tie downs for a overhead camper. Will they fit my truck? Do you offer Turn Buckles to attach the camper to anchor?


Expert Reply:

The Erickson Heavy-Duty Retractable Anchors, part # EM01003, are not designed as a truck camper tie-downs. The weight capacity is only 1,000 lbs. I could not recommend them as camper tie-downs.

As far as fitting your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Short Bed, the Erickson anchors # EM01003 are universal fit items and designed to fit most Chevy, GMC, Dodge, Ford and Toyota pickups. However, you will want to measure the stake pockets on your vehicle and compare with the measurements we have listed on the product page to see if they will fit your vehicle.

For camper tie-downs I would recommend the Brophy Camper Tie Down, part # HSSF, along with the Brophy Camper Tie Down Hardware Package, part # TDHP. The hold downs wrap around the bed, not in the stake pockets, and are mounted inside the bed. They will work for any camper size that fits your vehicle correctly. The tie down hardware has a maximum weight capacity of 3,000 lbs.
