RE: Best truck for Northern Lite 10-2

Not wading in on this other than to say I wanted a SRW for bad winter conditions (montana) and required that it not exceed weight with an NL 10-2 wet bath. I got a 2020 Ford F350 Diesel 6.7L engine. Payload listed on the "yellow sticker" is 4585lbs. This is perfectly adequate for a camper with a listed dry weight of 3285 (actual on my camper is 3350lbs). My truck has an increased GVWR of 12,500 and is an XLT package if anyone is interested. Just letting folks who want a NL 10-2 and a SRW truck know that a very comfortable combination is available. Oh my. My 2018 F350 6.7 drw, crew cab, 4x4, 8' bed has a payload sticker of 5500 lbs. The drw option must add 1,000 lbs payload.

RE: Portable grill/stove

Truck camper is limited for space and for people, why have a huge grill for 2-4 people? I like small and light weight. This works fine for us and I cook for up to 4 on it. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Expert-Grill-17-5-10-000-BTU-Portable-Gas-Grill-Black/238454155

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

you might be able to find something on youtube? search happijac. i think the wireless remote can be used with a patch cord to the control board.

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

for best info i would call Northern Lite. They would know how old your camper is and if it had wireless remote or a wired remote.

RE: 2019 Ford F-350 Sat Antenna Issues

I have 2018 F350 DRW, crew cab and a 2018 Northern Lite 10-2. I really do not have much problem losing Sirus signal, but I do occasionally. When I drive north bound is when I have the most problems losing signal. Driving east/west or south bound no problems.

RE: Best truck for Northern Lite 10-2

Brochure says mine is 4,250, door sticker says 3,829. Brochure does not list with options. Door stickers are nearly always less unless maybe stripper XL model. Mine is an XLT. :)Year? Gas? Diesel? CC? EC? SB? LB? Already posted all that in earlier post: 2012 gasser EC LB 4x4. Brochure versus reality of sticker is a common issue. Steve Yeah I have a 2017 F350 4x4, XL, CC, LB, SRW, Gasser. Door sticker 4140 max payload. Never had to order it, bought it off dealer lot new with snow plow and camper packages. I have 2018 F350 DRW, 4X4, crew cab, 8' bed, plow and camper package, 6.7 diesel, with XLT package. Door sticker says 5500 payload. The truck only drops 2" in rear when my 2018 Northern Lite 10-2 is loaded on truck ready to go with full tanks. I have no need for air bags, load stabilizers or larger sway bars. The truck handles the camper almost like it's not even there.

RE: Best truck for Northern Lite 10-2

Well, I have a Northern Lite 10-2 and a 2018 F350 DRW 6.7 diesel and it is a perfect combination. I certainly would not let DEF fluid stop me from buying a diesel, it's a non issue as long as you buy DEF from your dealer. Here is a YouTube link that Runaway Roses did of my setup. www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fxr6Oh9YUM&t=52s What a nice rig! The tweaks you’ve make, though seemingly small to the casual observer, reap great changes on comfort and functionality. Great job! Best, Bill Thank you Bill for the kind words. BTW, I just down the road from you in Winchester.

RE: Photo Thread - Post a Photo of Your Truck Camper Here

Site was not level. I do not use blocks under tires. Just release fast guns and raise electric jacks just enough to level it out. When done at campsite just let camper back down on truck attach fast guns and away i go.

RE: Microwave for Truck Camper..

You are aware that steam from stove "kills" above stove microwaves unles they have some serious ventilation- ventilation to outside. IMHO, keep the microwave in the cabinet. If you decide to go on long trip without hook ups you can remove microwave and use cabinet space. If you go on trips where you will have hook ups, put the microwave in cabinet. Best of bth worlds. Permanately install microwave and lose cabinet space forever.

RE: Ford F-350 camera over cab

If you are talking about the bed camera (in light above rear window), mine has a single center line. the line also shifts when you turn the truck. I marked a centerline on part of my camper (with a piece of black electric tape) and that helps keep camper centered while backing truck under camper.

RE: What percent of the time do you leave your TC on your truck?

A few people have said they only ever need 2WD trucks. So, quick survey. What percent of the time do you leave your TC (truck camper) on your truck? I’m probably 10%. I went camping for a few days, and did a few week trips. Would have done more, but had other things that interfered this year. At the most, I’d say 20% in any year. Probably 50% of the time for me...I do take it off to haul firewood and in the winter to have an extra vehicle available..A DRW in any shape or format is a poor grocery getter and just as poor as a choice for any off roading.. A SRW is a far better choice for a pickup to be just a pickup but a better choice for large truck campers... Not sure why a DRW is not a good daily driver/ grocery getter? I daily drive my DRW and it does great. Camper comes off while home unless we are going back out within a couple days.
