RE: Attention all Wolf Creek 850 Owners

Nolan, I already miss my little Lance 850. A non slide no hang over the rear camper. I traveled some of the same roads as you do in Borrego. My 1050 now I have to go a little slower. I almost bought a brand new WC before my first Lance for $15k but got a bad vibe for the dealer in AZ selling it. Just reinforced the idea of buying close to home, and the factory is not much further away. For what you do the WC is perfect and there are not many other campers like it. I hope you can get your issues solved with you new camper. Will Norms RV honor your warranty issues?

RE: Attention all Wolf Creek 850 Owners

An update from 2014. My Wolf Creek 850 is a brand new 2014, and just experienced the same failure. Luckily, I noticed it in my mirror, and suffered no other damage to the camper or truck. It happened while cruising on the highway. (Not off road, etc). THIS ISSUE HAS NOT BEEN FIXED in 2014's! Also, interestingly, Northwood says this is NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY Everything else aside, The fact that they won't warranty it is troubling. Nobody's really talking about THAT. Why would anyone want buy a product from a company that won't stand behind 100%? That's a good question for the OP.

RE: Lance 992 Actual Weight?

Don't wait too long to buy your 992. Lance is discontinuing the 992 and a few other models this year. If you are buying new, what's on the lots now is all that's left.

RE: Maggie Rack popularity

I had one on my Lance that I never used. I tripped over it a couple times while washing the roof. My next Lance will not have one. X2 I had a Thule pod up there for about a year or two... inconvenant to get to... plus the height, wind drag, and recommended weigh limits, etc was a pain. The roof racks do make good PVSolar panel mounts. I have a crew cab truck...the back seat is very convienent to haul stuff, store stuff, and best of all... get to stuff... rain or shin, snow, wind, just open the door. sleepy Ha! I forgot I posted that. But guess what? My new Lance doesn't have one.

RE: TR: Anza Borrego Desert State Park Mud Caves in Summer

Nice TR. Your Honda might not be able to run the new Coleman 9K's. Some people are having issues because of the new refrigerant being used. Although it does work for me.

RE: Finally, other truck campers on the road.

Just finished a month long trip to Canada. Went through Oregon, Washington, Vancouver, Banff NP, Calgary, Montana, Idaho, Navada and back home to San Diego. Counted over 100 TC's and most of those were in Northern California, Oregon, Washington and Canada.

RE: Update: Ford f350 6.2 and heavy camper

I just finished a 4800 mile round trip from San Diego to Canada and back with my 6.2 and averaged 9.5 mpg with my 4000 lb. Lance camper. My truck is a 1 ton regular cab 4x4 with the 4.30 rear end. I've had the truck for 4 years now and it has been flawless. Turned 50k on the odo climbing the non stop mountains on the trans-Canadian hwy. Truck had power to spare.

RE: license plate

How hard is it to move the plate from the truck to the camper? It takes me about 30 seconds Its really hard when I always forget to. I already have enough stuff to try and remember when getting ready to leave on a trip.

RE: license plate

I made a color laminated copy of the truck plate and put it on the back of the camper so I would have a plate on both places. Same here. Laminated color copy of my plate, mounted to the back of my camper. It looks like the real thing.

RE: High Quality Low Height Antenna... Do they exist?

RE: jensen tv in new lance 1050s

I did not get the Jensen TV on my new Lance for this reason and just put a $99 LED TV I bought at Target.

RE: Getting ready to pull the trigger on a Lance 855s

No built in generator but carry a Honda 2000. Also no microwave but have all other options. My a/c is the smaller 9200 btu version.

RE: Getting ready to pull the trigger on a Lance 855s

Those EC campers are really heavy, Lance 855 2410lbs with slide 2650lbs, EC 850 3117lbs No way is my 855s less than 3000# dry. I think that Lance is the leader in understating weight. Brochure for my 815 says 1700 lbs I think, tag on the camper says 2200+. Perhaps they just spec out a stripped model. They spec a base TC and then provide a list of options. My Lance 1050S weighs 4500 lbs. That's fully loaded and wet I hope? My 1050S is right at 4000 lbs. wet with a weeks worth of "stuff" packed. That's pretty good for a camper that is 1 inch shy of 11 feet long with a slide out.

RE: Who uses a new ram Short bed

I think what Lance meant was stay away from the new 3/4 ton Rams. They now use coil springs in the rear instead of the common leaf springs found in light duty trucks. Ram 1 ton trucks still use leafs although I've heard they are longer than what Chevy and Ford use. There are no aftermarket suspension helpers on the market for the rear coil spring setup so if you buy one for a TC you are screwed.

RE: Lance ultra deck

It's only available on the new Lance 1052. Its a nice deck and I really liked it. Paul Actually someone on the Lance forum just got a 1050S with the ultra deck and it was available for my 1050S when I ordered it a few months ago.
RZAR66 06/08/14 08:55pm Truck Campers
RE: Lance ultra deck

It's a $2500 option. They were just rolling them out when I ordered my 1050S back in February. I passed when I realized the 1050S already has a ton of outside storage because I did not get the built in genny.

RE: Getting ready to pull the trigger on a Lance 855s

Just looking for your opinion/satisfaction if you've been down this path. It's going on my 2011 GMC 2500 D/A They won't delete the Heki Skylight which is a concern. The competitions comparables all seem to be heavier. Thanks in advance There are people on the Lance Forum that had the Heki deleted. I was almost going to delete ours when we ordered earlier this year but the new Heki design addresses the weaknesses of the order ones. Still there are some things I don't like about it, for example not being able to close the shade all the way when its sunny and hot outside. Seems ridiculus. But my dealer said it would not be a problem for Lance to put something else in the cabover. He just said it would delay our order and may cost a little more.

RE: What size of a tv is in your truck camper?

I put a 15" TV in my Lance using only the HD antenna. We don't use it often but its nice to have when we are staying in or near a city. Sometimes its nice the watch the 10 or 11 o'clock news before going to bed. I like to see what is going on in a city I've never been before. One time I found out about a car show that was happening on the news, so the next day we went to it. I guess its how and where you camp. Personally I like to do it all. Boondock, campgrounds, and RV parks if we stay in a city. We do whatever we have interest in. I like to say that we are travelers with a hotel room strapped to the back of my pickup truck.

RE: How to spend money in Canada

Sorry if you think my question is "foolish" but this is the first time I have been out of US since I was 4 years old, not including Mexico. I just wanted opinions on what other people do for money while in Canada since I have no experience. I thought that what forums are for. Anyway, thanks to all those that actually answered my question.
