Fleetwood Fiesta or Terra: What's the difference?

I have a possible interest in buying an older Fleetwood 26Y with Twin Beds. I have 2006 brochures for the Fiesta and for the Terra and I can't see any difference beside the name. Can you tell me what's different?

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

With our Dodge dually diesel carrying our Northern Lite 10-2 CD, we get about 15 mpg driving 55-60 mph.

RE: Time to replace batteries??

My 2008 Mazda is still using the original battery. How is that possible? When I'm not using the vehicle, I desulfate the battery with a BatteryMINDER 2012.

RE: Does such a Class A exist?

It seems to me that you are really looking for a Class C rather than a Class A and you just can't admit it to yourself.What does that mean? Why do you think I want a Class C when I say I want a Class A?

How long and how much to spend?Shorter is better -- say 25 ft. Budget: maybe $30K.

Does such a Class A exist?

Does such a Class A exist? Our Northern Lite 10-2 CD slide-in truck camper suits us perfectly except for three drawbacks. But first some features we like: The roomy dinette with a large window. No slides to mess with and malfunction. The drawbacks: At age 84, climbing into and out of the cabover bed multiples times per night. The standard-size RV toilet, which seems more suitable for a child than for an adult male – and not enough room to swap it out. Plus the air conditioner does not permit the option of cooling the sleeping area without cooling the entire interior. We like the Leisure Vans Unity model (not a Class A) with rear twin beds and loads of overhead storage. But we don’t care for the transverse dinette with a limited view of the outdoors. Do you know of a Class A with rear twin beds, a toilet with residential-size elongated seat, the ability to air condition the bedroom without cooling the entire interior, a roomy dinette with a good view of the outdoors, and no slide? And I guess I should mention that our budget dictates used not new.

Has anyone heard from Sleepy?

I haven't seen a post by Sleepy recently. Has anyone been in touch with him?

RE: Norcold Fridge Defrost Cycle

Dometic has no such defrost Cycle. NORCOLD DOES. DougThanks for the correction. I thought we had a Dometic but I just checked and it's a Norcold. Note that I have changed the original post from "Dometic" to "Norcold." So which is it: 48 hours from the start of or from the end of the previous cycle?

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?
