We've been looking for a few weeks to get an older camper that would fit our truck and make camping a little easier. I really wanted to be in around 3-4k and thought I'd get something 15-20 years old.

Yeah, that's not going to happen. Made an offer on a 2007 northstar which was really nice. Probably should have offered more.

But, after missing several opportunities, having a couple offers turned down, I finally found one in our price range, good condition and able to fit a short bed. It was posted for 17 minutes when i called.

1995 Northland 860. Can't remember which model. A little heavier than I wanted, but lighter than any of the others out there once slides became common. No leaks which was critical to us. Fridge isn't working on propane which is fine for now.

I'll get it home, add air bags, forklift tie downs and a sway bar. Wash it and maybe buy a cover for it. Front of camper needs bumpers too. Looks like they fell off at some point with no damage to the wood.

I need to make a little thing to hold the camper shell from the truck.


I bought a northland camper last year, i think 1999 and my fridge didnt work on propane either, worked on power. I took it to local RV dealer and it just needed a new circuit board for like $150.

Good to know. I certainly will do some investigation into it before replacing. Not sure I would replace anyway.

Congratulations! That interior looks lika a time capsule from the nineties. I wish you many happy travels!


That it is. Better than some of the others I saw in pastels and florals. This one is pimp style.

Congrats! We just picked up a 95’ Lance Squire lite 185 for our short bed D-Max last night. We ended up paying 4K I was hoping to get it for $3500 but he wouldn’t budge. It was listed at $4500 and here in CA a solid clean TC with A/C For short bed trucks are hard to find.

They are hard to find. We missed on a really nice looking Squire 3000 on Saturday. The seller is supposed to know today if it is sold. I have half a mind to check it out and if it is better than this one to buy it and resell this one. I think I could sell it and get my money out or even make some money.

Got it home. Didn't sag as much as I thought it would. Stairs are too short for our truck. Seller stiffed me for a couple saw horses that it was sitting on. About $100 worth.

Then a windstorm blew in and the excitement got cut short.
