Hi, I have....or had 2 rubber bumpers on the front of my Northstar Adventurer, last week when I unloaded the camper one of the rubber bumpers were broken off. I am thinking of removing them and putting a carpeted 2X8 in the front. What do most campers have?

Thanks

I have rubber strips on the front of my Lance but the in bed front rail has rubber on it. Did you determine what caused the rubber to break off? Did the camper slide around in the bed? If so are you using a bed mat to prevent that from happening?

I have a thick rubber mat, even with that I have noticed the camper moving a little on a long trip(10,000 miles) between unloading. I have a 2X8 in the front of my truck bed and I suspect on my last loading I got too close and when I lowered the camper is sheared off on the 2X8. I am wondering if I actually need the bumpers. Would a carpeted 2x8 serve the same purpose of keeping the camper from bending the front wall of my truck bed?

I think it would. Having something solid in the front to keep the camper off the front of the bed should fix your problem.
