Ford Simulates Truck Camper to Test F-Series

Ford showcases how its company tests to see if its F-Series Super Duty trucks are up to the challenge of hauling today’s RVs, using a custom-built slide-in camper simulator.

The company tests the truck’s roll stability when its center of gravity is raised. The test simulates carrying a camper weighing more than 7,500 pounds, loaded with fresh water, cooking gear, fuel and batteries, the company said in a news release.

Watch Ford engineers put Super Duty through its paces at Arizona Proving Grounds, subjecting the truck to low- and high-speed lane changes as well as slalom runs.
