My V2 thoughts on my powerwagon

This is the first I’ve heard of this so I’m going to confer with the rest of the minds In the service department. Can you shoot me an email to with a photo of exactly where you ware talking about? That will help for sure.


Will do. Getting stuff ready to head out in the morning. Super stoked.

Once you guys dig into this and find a solution, can you post an update as to what was determined? Cheers.


Absolutely we can do that!

I will get some pics of the holes when I set up camp in a couple of hours.

Not to highjack this thread but I am guessing you are talking about the corners of the tent where they attach to the floor ? See pics.

With advice from GFC I was able to relax the tension on the tent by partially closing it and manipulate/slide the tent material to close the gaps. A bit of sealant might be good too. Hope this helps.

Probably the same spot, it only leaks when closed.

Did you put a Ram drip rail on the back door of the GFC, or did that come stock? Now I’m second guessing myself on the black as we get serious heatwaves here in the central interior of BC, canada. But I would hazard to guess that my truck body is just as hot. As for the condensation, have you tried opening the doors a bit, or a little 12v fan? That’s my plan, otherwise I might put in a dometic fan if I feel brave enough to cut the roof.

Order up your @jedgar drip rails before they’re gone, they just came back into stock :wink:

Rig looks great, look forward to my BigHorn 1500 install in September :smiley:

Does anyone know if the hole in the front bottom of the camper overhang is a drain hole?

My camper is all stock, ordered with every option. I had 2 windows open, but with the temperature and humidity it got damp. A couple of hours of sun and all was good. I don’t plan on any fans, just wasn’t that big of a deal for me.

I’m pretty sure that is a drain hole, and from what I’ve read; I believe there are two in the extrusion as well. Which is probably where the water drips out and into your rear door when it rains.

Thanks Dignon, I figured it was a drain. Had the camper for a few weeks and just noticed it.

looks good. we hated going up on the inside, it would be fine for one person but a pain with two. We like the ladder entry much better. It is funny when you see guys in Tacomas and Rangers etc being able to reach up and do stuff but ain’t very easy in a PW. I use a Gorilla ladder to get on the tail gate. it is sturdy, light and pretty much the length of the tailgate and folds flat. It doubles as a table too.


I will have to look into the Gorilla ladder. We have the side doors and an extendable ladder if we want to use that route, but we specifically wanted to be able to use the inside route because my wife hates ladders. And yeah, it is tall. Standing on my decked system it was still a stretch to roll up my back window just now. After a week plus living in it I am getting used to it.

my wife is short and pushing 60 yoa and she said the ladder is way easier than going up from inside. We had a free spirit trailer top tent on a small trailer and it was a much shorter climb up and my wife hated that but this she said was not a problem at all. the ladder from GFC is very secure and wide. my buddy just bought a James Baroud the ladder is narrow and his wife hates it.

My wife is vertically challenged too. We’ll see how it goes, she has not camped with me in it yet. Plus we have 2 very spoiled dogs that will not be happy if they don’t get to sleep up there too.

we sleep with our dog up there as well lol… I stand on the tail gate and lift him up inside.

I have been thinking about vinyl wrapping mine silver to help with the heat. I agree the sides get crazy hot.

Looks great!

Excited to pick my V2 up for my 20’ PW in a few weeks!

I put the amp research step on my truck and it’s been great. It tucks up tight under the bumper when not in use and makes it very easy to get in and out of the truck. Would highly suggest it if you guys are looking for another option without having to carry extra gear.

Those PW’s have always caught my eye and love them look of them, you guys all have some great looking rigs! Nice to see more full-size rigs out there enjoying the outdoors.
