🏕️ F150 Tremor Camping Forum!

Love this thread. (y) Great to see all the different setups. Just got back a few hours ago from our first long haul in the Tremor. Phoenix - Austin round trip for the F1 race. 24' 200MK was loaded at ~5,800 for the trip. Played around with the modes a bit on the drive, some mixed conditions. 70% of the trip was 65-70mph on the straight flat stuff. 25% tow mode and 60mph through the hilly parts. We did have a nice stretch of some sustained winds, so cruised at 45mph in the slow lane with the rest of the trucks. View attachment 10018
Kept track of the gas purchases - got worse when we did the hand math, 6.3 mpg. Maybe I was overly optimistic.

In the same boat as you! This truck tows awesome and love it! Not loving the 7-8 mpg though! Heading from Miami to Nashville in March! Can't Wait to spend the $1,000.00 in gas! The Rest Relaxation and Fun is Worth it though!
 
A few pics from our current trip, first time the Tremor got to play on some back road trails and found a mud puddle 😉

Allegheny National Forest for the weekend, with a quick trip to Kinzua Bridge, Shenandoah National Park for a night (it was just a little foggy), and now Dreher Island State Park. Hitting Conagree National Park tomorrow.

Do they have full hook up sights or just BOONDOCKIN?

The campground we stayed at in Allegheny National Forest I would consider boondocking, they had no hookups nor dump station but do have bathroom/shower facilities. For Shenandoah, they have electric sites and possibly water/electric, not sure about full hookups. The site we had at Dreher island was water/electric, not sure about full hookups.

Traded my 17 JKU in for a 22 Tremor and haven't looked back. Some pics from our trip trying out parts of the Florida Adventure Trail.

Thanks!
 
I’m headed to Grand Teton + Yellowstone this summer for a week. Staying in a shelter, but planing to get out everyday. Only gear so far is a Dometic 75qt fridge/freezer, but saving up for a Flated topper.

Any recs for trails nearby to take the crew in the Tremor?

Check out TJs youtube videos @Tremor Trails - I think he had one or two recommendations parallel to the Tetons that looked like fun.
 
My wife and I are looking into RTT options. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Racks, tents, awnings, etc. Would love to be able to take our two boys on occasion with us, 12 and 10 years old, and only growing haha. I saw a few RTT posts on here, but figured instead of replying to them all I'll just ask for some advice from everyone. Also, not sure if there's any advice for being able to take our golden retriever with us as well. This is a new adventure we are hoping to take on. We've only done ground tents in the past. Thanks everyone!
 
Went to Colorado again for some camping and off roading. Stayed in the Twin Lakes area and wheeled in the Leadville area. Really awesome trip! loved the Twin Lakes area - mountains and lakes are an awesome combo. Got some paddle boarding in too. unfortunately, the Micro Minnie flattened out the rear springs. I don't think my husband and I realized how much weight we had in the bed and on the hitch. Going to get new factory springs and either air bags or RAS.View attachment 22466View attachment 22467View attachment 22468View attachment 22469View attachment 22471View attachment 22481
Nice trip! What rack is that on your bed?
 
Here's an early picture of my Tremor, taken back in September on a hunting trip. I didn't have a rooftop tent, so I made one.. Or tried. Kept me high off the ground.

Hammock camping is fun!

This is a 4 season bed tent, while they sell several bed tents this is one of the few actually rated for 4 season use. Naiper sells several that are cheaper but are not 4 season rated, all depends on what you want. Once you do this a couple of times it takes about 20-30 minutes to set it up.
 
Took a much needed, quick trip to our local mountains last week. First time towing up the very aggressive mountain road with this truck, did a great job! We and the dogs loved it!

I've been watching the RTT and canopy camper design progress and it appears (finally) this year the "modular" designs are beginning to show where the topper roof can be removed and the tent top installed then later return to a solid topper lid. At the moment I am not thinking the truck would be full-time dedicated enough to leave a canopy and tent top on at all times and I have a clearance issue with where I normally want to park ( oh yea lifting kinda plays into that LOL!!).

Less canvas is nice for high winds and actually getting some sleep if you are in CO or Utah areas. That said the idea of getting out there without breaking the bank with a bed tent or having to commit while these companies update their designs; none of this is cheap and the ability to get out there and use the truck is the biggest thing.

AluCab has recently announced their ModCAP: https://www.alu-cab.com/product/modcap-camper/
....I'm sure that won't be cheap but great they are starting to think a bit more about flexibility. They are also producing a 4-person tent top that provides some more room/option beyond their traditional wedge-tent that has been out for years.

This younger company Go Beyond announced their modular concept I think later last year (?) and so far it appears they are still in progress: https://www.bynd4x4.com/

Would like to talk with DirtBox and see if anything like this flexibility is on their radar.

And in other news going into Overland AZ .... Mammoth is going to produce this later this year: https://mammothoverland.com/tl/ (a cool $70K).

Interesting to see the progress in this space.
 
Thought I’d add a photo of the camper I purchased last year at our bear camp last week….was a tad wet,tremor did very well though in the mud.

First tow with Tremor, 300 miles, 14.5 MPG, a little surprised with rear end squat w/ about 350# tongue weight but drove great!
