Welcome, RKB! There is a Northern Lite Truck Camper Enthusiasts face book page also. And truck campers and truck camping face book pages with lots of good ideas. Also the best place for mod ideas is a free email magazine: WWW.truckcampermagazine.com Angela and Gordon White have mod contests almost every month.

Enjoy!


What is up with the facebook "Northern Lite truck camper enthusiasts" page. I have asked to join numerous times. Is there a secret handshake?

Hi @WyoBull, Nice set up! How far past your bed does the camper extend? I think I remember from the Ford forum you were going to tow; will you need an extension?

Hey there! I do tow a 12 foot Utility trailer with my ATV, coolers and other gear. I have a 34 inch Reese 2 1/2" extension which at that length has a tongue weight capacity of 450 lbs and a total capacity of 4500 lbs. That is plenty for anything I would haul behind me while having the camper on board.

Just picked up our 2018 NL 8-11 QC SE camper yesterday and put it on my 2005 F350 CC SD 4x4. Fits like a glove. We live in SW Ohio. Special ordered it back in March. Can't wait to get out in it.

We pick up out 2018 Northern Lite 8-11 first week of September, we ordered it July 2, 2017
We will be going on a Northern Lite Plant Tour mid August to see our rig being built. We ordered it with U shaped dinette, Loden green interior, Electric / Propane Hot water tank, New in 2018 is the dry bath, which should be interesting to try out ( grin) As well we ordered it without a A/C unit which just holds the snow and ice on the roof in the winter, as we plan on using it snowmobiling. So instead of the A/C unit we have a third Fantastic Fan installed and all covered with MaxAir Vent covers.
We will have it in loaded onto out new 2017 Sierra SLE 3500 HD Duramax 4X4 short box with the 6 speed Allison Transmission
We will also be towing out 1000 CanAm Commander XT Side XSide in the non snow months of the year.


2018 Northern Lite 8-11 EX Dry Bath
2017 Sierra SLE, 3500 HD / 4x4 / Duramax with a 6 speed Allison Trans
Torklift Super Hitch 20K, 48" Super Truss, front and rear frame mounted tie downs
Fast Gun Long Range SS Turnbuckles, Fast Gun locks

Joined the Northern Lite club today. 2001 9'6 Lite. Fits the truck like a glove. This thing was hardly used since new and sat in a heated barn most of its life. Just need to clean it up and the passenger rear tie down may have an issue but I love the molded fiberglass shell. Manual jacks are kind of a pain but I like that they don't stick out on the side.
