RE: Carpet on ceilings.....

Does anyone have any ideas what to do about the carpet on my old Northern Lite camper? I do not like breathing the fibers that are starting to break down causing dust inside. Aside from always vacuuming the headliner each trip I would like to coat it or cover it. Just don't want to ruin it as it's still a nice 03 camper I bought new and upgraded. Thanks in advance.I would email Keith at Northern Lite ([email protected]) and ask him what to do. He always responds promptly to my emails.

RE: Front bed dipping with camper help

From the picture, it looks like the bottom of the cabover is sitting on the roof of the truck cab. If so, the roof of the truck cab could be damaged if you drive anywhere with the camper in the truck bed.

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

The 8-11 was here near me but I think the company moved it to Sacramento, I see a camper there now that looks the same, it does not have a ladder on it. It listed for the same price. The price is extremely high. I’m not really in a hurry though. Here is a good question, will a dealership let you test load and drive a camper around in your truck? I feel like paying higher prices would be worth it if you could test drive it. They’re listing the 2018 NL 8-11 for $34,999.I looked online and that was the asking price for the one or two 2018 8-11 Sportsman that I saw, with a 2017 for $2000 less. If you want to do a test drive you can always ask and explain why you want to test drive it on your truck. The worst they can do is say no.

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

Does anybody’s out there have a northern lite 8-11 on a lifted vehicle?Before we bought our Northern Lite 10-2, we rented a NL Sportsman 8-11 on a Ford F350 SRW shortbed. No the Ford was not lifted. But the experience was positive enough that we decided to buy the NL 10-2. I think the NL actual weights are posted in the closet. Ours is. Northern Lites are some of the lightest TCs for their size on the market -- maybe the lightest. So you're on the right track. If you want that Sportsman and the price is right, you'd better grab it because it won't last long. How do you know if the price is right? If it's gone before you have a chance to get it. Sorry, I know that's no help. It's hard to compare prices because their are so few used NLs on the market. I'm rooting for you to get the Sportsman. Good luck.

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

I think I’ll sleep better during the daytime in a hard sided camper during the summer temperatures with more insulation. Also noise level will be lessened during the day while I’m trying to sleep all day long. Also won’t have to close it before I drive home. One less thing to do after three 13 hour nighshifts, all the better.I agree. Thanks for responding.

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

In order to minimize height and weight, you might want to consider a pop-up TC such as NorthStar, Hallmark, or Outfitter.Those would be a nuisance to live in when parking near the OP's work site to avoid commuting.It appears that the OP wants to purchase a hardside and is not considering a popup. Nevertheless, I want to amplify my previous response re popups being a "nuisance." After years of tent camping and a round trip to Alaska in our pickup with topper, we bought our first truck camper, a Phoenix popup. Our first day on the road, when we stopped for the night, it was raining a bit. But our spirits were not dampened. On the contrary, we were elated. The entry in our trip log reads, “We managed to pop the top without getting too wet. Inside, we were able to get everything set up for the night. We decided that this camper is just the finest thing.” Did we consider our popup “a nuisance”? Hardly. And if the OP’s camper is going to sit in a parking lot for days at a time, what difference would it make if it’s a popup?

RE: Bigfoot (old vs new)

Don't want to hijack your thread. But I am wondering how much of this applies or doesn't apply to the Northern Lite. I thought you might want to consider a NL as an alternative. We started out wanting a Bigfoot but wound up with a NL.

Thanks, dual rear wheel will not work for me though.I'm curious. Why not?

RE: Reg cab long bed vs extended cab long bed?

This doesn't address the OPs question. But I would want a dually for anything but the lightest popup -- not for weight-carrying ability but for stability.

RE: Back Porch Ideas

The TC today sits on 2 2x10x8' planks in the truck bed because I need the 1-1/2" rise for bedrail clearance and also cab clearance over the sharkfin antenna. I'm thinking of taking 1-1/2" square steel tube and running 3 lengths under the entire camper front-to-back to take the place of the 2x10 planks. The steel tubes would provide less than 1/4 of the surface area of the planks to support the camper -- and would not have the give of the planks. I would not be comfortable with that.

RE: Considering building camper from scratch...

My father-in-law built a truck camper from scratch. It was quite nice but too heavy for the truck he put it on. Don't know the details and he's no longer around to ask. But to answer your question: If you have the time, the requisite skills, and will enjoy the project, go for it.

RE: How to deploy Happijac dually swingout brackets?

Thanks, guys. I hit the bolt with a rubber mallet while pulling on the bracket. Piece of cake!

Help! I don't remember how to release the Happijac dually swingout brackets to allow them to swing out. Thanks.
