EDITED HI everyone, I am looking for a GFC V2 for my Chevy Colorado ZR2 with the short bed. I’m located in Ventura County however my truck is currently in AZ which will be brought out to CA in the next couple months. Would like to get a unit with most options however let me know what you have. One thing I can tell you is I DONT want the orange tent fabric.
Had one lined up and the seller sold out from under me with no communication. So, I’m on the hunt for another.
Am willing to travel for the right unit. CA, AZ, NV maybe OR. Please let me know if you have anything for sale. Thanks!
Hey @TMPerry - Before pulling the trigger on any “cross compatible” options, give me a bit of time to confirm this one with our engineering team. Happy to provide confidence there if that’s indeed true, but I’d hate for a deal to go through without double checking that as an option.
@TMPerry - Alrighty, just got some word back from our engineering team on cross-compatibility between your Colorado and the Tacoma DCSB. Unfortunately, the Tacoma bed is quite a bit wider than the Colorado, which means the camper could not be mounted as intended. The cab rake angle on the Colorado is also a lot steeper, so fitment issues at the cab would another be an issue.
In the end, each of our campers is designed to be truck-specific, taking into account precise measurements like bed length, width, cab height, and rake angle. While we understand there have been rumors floating around about cross-compatibility with other truck models, it’s essential to ensure a proper fit and safe connection. Attempting to mount a camper intended for a different truck might result in fitment issues or even jeopardize stability, and it for sure voids our warranty.
We want to make sure you have the best camping/off-roading experience without any risks. So, we highly recommend sticking with a camper designed specifically for your Chevy Colorado ZR2 to ensure a solid fitment. If you have any questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out.
Hi @Thayne, man I appreciate this. I swear I called customer service a few months back and was told that some trucks (specifically Toyota DCSB would transfer to the Colorado SB) however, now I am doubting what was said in the conversation.
This is great information and obv needed so I will stay on the hunt for a Colorado SB specific camper. Goin to see if I can edit my post.
Hi @TMPerry – I know you want to avoid the orange tent though my v2 is available in Santa Cruz if you change your mind. You might ask GFC if it’s possible to swap out the tent materials. I use the camper in standing desk mode and the orange fabric seems to keep the interior brighter (which I like) than the grey fabric.
Hey @TMPerry - That depends on whether or not you’re upgrading to a tent with side doors.
Not to upsell you here, but if you’re comfy with the cost, I suggest adding them for the views and side ladder access. I have to admit, I use the side doors and ladder just as much as the transform-a-floor, and it makes access in/out at night so much more convenient. Plus… the views.
Here’s the cost to switch + labor if you don’t DIY:
Either Color, No Side Doors - $750
Either Color, Side Doors - $1050.00
Labor - $100/hr
If you have any other questions, let me know or give us a call.
