Hey guys let me start out by saying, I know I haven't posted in a long while, but I check the forum almost daily still, I'm not gone, and I'm still saving some money to eventually buy myself another Lada Very Happy. Anyway here is the story:

I bought myself a truck camper a few days ago (it was pretty much free) I was not there for the loading process, my dad was. It made the trip safely but now I cant unload it! I get the camper jacked up fairly high (I can clearly see underneath the box of my truck) no obstructions up top, jacks are level all bolts relating to the jacks are tight and secure, I go to pull the truck away and the jacks start moving backwards Rolling Eyes. I have tried every reasonable way to get the *censored* camper off my truck all to no avail the jacks will always pull up. The most we moved the camper was maybe 12 inches one time before the tire ran over 1 end of a jack causing the camper to fall back onto the truck Mad . We have even tried ditching 2 out of 3 tripods (we the poles secured to some thick wood planks) to see if that would help but no joy. Was outside from 3PM to 10PM today.

I am just wondering if anybody here would know of a way to safely get the camper off my truck, This thing has already chewed into my box rail guards more than once and they cant take much more a beating. I'd like to have minimal damage to my truck and the camper, but the bottom line is the camper has to come off, and if that means it has to be damaged, so be it. Case of beer to the first man that comes up with the idea to get the camper off.

P.S. My auntie dropped of her truck camper here yesterday and it took her all of 10 minutes to offload it WTF?!?!?!? Rolling Eyes

Shocked ummm ... mebbe some pix would help dude??

Although it does sound to me like the thing may just be leaning on the headboard of the tray and rocking as the truck moves ... ???
