How would you install it into the bed of a Ridgeline?
In addition to what @zroger73 said above, the Ridgeline tailgate opening isn’t a straight-shot through the rear of the bed due to the tailgate mechanism housing on the left side — it’s a bottleneck and a slide-in camper would have to be more narrow than the actual bed (unless they planned to drop it in from the top down). In addition to my addition, I never saw on their website where they even said what trucks any of their products were compatible with — they went more with the more generic “small, medium and large” truck phrasing.It would slide into the ridgeline bed. Scout campers use a ratcheting system that attaches to the truck beds ties down. I believe the bed tie downs are rated at 350lbs each x 4 they should be able to secure 1400lbs.
That is most likely the tension load rating, not how much dead weight it will “secure”. Do you know how much tension load is on the straps at 70 mph when the wind is trying to pull it out the back of the truck? What if it weighed the same but was twice as tall - same answer?It would slide into the ridgeline bed. Scout campers use a ratcheting system that attaches to the truck beds ties down.

Mmm....maybe, read the above post....My RTL has a max payload weight of 1509 pounds so the max payload would not be exceeded on a fully loaded Scout TukTut.
This is my problem whenever I start looking at RV’s. The idea always seems great but even for the cost of a cheap used one I could do Air B&B or even standard hotels for as many nights as I’d get to use one.One can stay at a lot of nice places for the cost of this camper and not stress the truck or burn more gas.
