About to take the EC 1200 Plunge
Congrats on the new truck!  I just bought a 2020 EC1200 I found online (good deal, I think).  Going to pick it up in a few days, so I have just seen pictures so far.  Bought it sight unseen by me in CA, but had a truck-camper-owning relative (and friend) check it out and take delivery.  At first, I’m mounting it on my 2015 F350 CC LB 4X4 dually.  Recently added upper and lower overload spring blocks, bigger front/rear (anti-)sway bars, extended hitch, frame-mounted tie-down anchors, SS fast-gun tie-downs, all Torklift stuff.  Already had airbags on all corners, dual adjustable remote-reservoir shocks, travel limit straps, and leveling kit on the fronts, for pulling my 5th wheel TH, same model as another here: 2014 Dutchman Voltage 3818.

Much cheaper than the Host Mammoth (also a triple-slide) I was considering.  I like the two cab-over entries (why I did not get the 1165), but looks like a tiny bath and sink as a result of that floor-plan.  Life is a compromise.

We plan a short shakedown camping trip with both truck campers soon, then I’ll bring it home to TX.  But, I have to remove my 91-gallon aux diesel transfer tank/toolbox to make room in the bed first (and bed side-steps, high-rise camper-shell).  (Going to miss that).

Future plan is to trade-in my 5th-wheel, and current truck(s), for a 2020 F-450 next year (aluminum body, 10-speed tranny, 48 gallon fuel tank, TPMS, bigger brakes and stronger axles, much stiffer boxed frame, etc.  Thinking of a custom order with dual larger alternators, no moonroof, massaging seats, etc.

Should be a lot of fun!  Enjoy, and hope to see you on the road.
