RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Of course you can always try to find something already built in a place you like and not have to deal with all the Bull Poop. Friend of mine just retired, sold his North Bend home he built 30 years ago and bought a place on the Columbia North of Daroga State Park. He's got room for his trailer and toys on the property.

We are beginning to look at manufactured homes and park models for future property. That's an interesting development.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Please note the corrections. My two show favorites were First In Show to the ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath and a close second to the NorthernLite 10-2 Which Adventurer is the 856 ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath,they don't show a 856 SEE CORRECTION so I assume it is either the 89RB or the 86FB..Adventurer truck campers are underrated on the internet in my opinion..I have been in a 86RB and it was rock solid and easily compares to Lance in my opinion.. ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath I goofed, this is it. I did find video of it with the Eagle Cap Models. How did the AF 865 seem room wise,you had issues filming the 865 which you noted..

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

GOOD GRAVY BATMAN!!! Messed that one up. These are the corrections. ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Bath was my winner. Adventurer 910 Mid Bath was a comparison to the 865. The dinette/fridge slide opened wide and removed the separation and privacy between bedroom and dinette/kitchen areas. I went through the posts and edited in the corrected information. Sorry about that Chief...

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Another thing I'd like to hear opinions on are the HappyJack -vs- Rieco Titan. I prefer the Rieco Titan Jack, it looks more substantial. Rieco Titan all the way. I was looking around for information on Atwood jacks, no longer manufactured, but found this tidbit. How do I replace my Atwood Electric Jacks? We recommend replacing your Atwood Electric Jacks with Rieco Titan electric jacks since the bolt pattern is the same as Atwood's electric jacks. Note that you will be required to replace the female plug on your camper with a Rieco Titan plug, since the Atwood female plug is not compatible with the Rieco Titan male plug.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Thank you for the videos. I'm a quarter inch over 6'4. I was looking at the newer Northern Lite 10'2. Was worried about the interior height after seeing West Coast Roller video awhile back. With your video gives me hope so I need to go look at a newer Northern Lite 10'2 and see if I clear the AC unit :). I wished Bigfoot would raise the interior height to 6'8 and give us a real queen bed 60x80. They are missing out on sales from us taller folks :) The NorthernLite Rep. said they did raise the ceiling a couple inches in the new models after the fire destroyed all the old molds. You can see I have at least 4" head clearance and I'm 6'-1". Another thing I'd like to hear opinions on are the HappyJack -vs- Rieco Titan. I prefer the Rieco Titan Jack, it looks more substantial.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Thanks for posting the videos. My two show favorites were First In Show to the Adventurer 856 Mid Wet Bath and a close second to the NorthernLite 10-2. What made these two models show favorites (first and second) or are you just saying which two you could see yourself in? Looking at the Host models, they seem to be still head and shoulders above the others with respect to innovation and features although they probably cost more as well. These are two picks based upon our needs. The campers were all nicely built and appealing to all the different needs people have. We don't need slides or hugeness, just efficient space utilization. The HOST has had the same design for several years now I'm pretty sure. Of course it's not like there's room for a lot of change. You can only move around the pieces in so many ways. A friend has a Mammoth and it is a sweet setup! Going back to me and DW, I liked the 865 Mid Wet Bath ARCTIC FOX because it created separation from the bed area and the dinette/kitchen area. We are planning to spend a year or two on the road and that separation could help a lot with putting up with each other. Mostly in that Kelli is late to bed, late to rise, and I'm an early person. It would make that difference more manageable in a tight quarter over time. I would like a longer version of the 856. There is the Adventurer 910 Mid Bath that has a slide that when slid out, creates a wide opening between the bed area and Dinette/kitchen areas reducing that feeling of separation and privacy and we don't need a slide, then I also like the kitchen arrangement better in the ARCTIC FOX 865. The Adventurer 910 kitchen had a wide separation between sink and stove, I'd like them closer. The NorthernLite is beautiful inside but I have pretty much settled on a Mid Bath design. The factory rep said they used to make a Mid Bath but there wasn't enough demand for it and they are so busy building what they are concentrated on, it just isn't in the future even if I cried several buckets of tears. If NorthernLite did build a 10-2 in a mid bath design, my search would be over.

RE: Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

The “escape hatch” on the Arctic Fox campers is the driver side window by the bed where the whole window pivots out. Yeah, I caught on to the side windows being exits after reading the stickers more closely. Happens when you try to talk, point at what you're talking about, record, and chew gum at the same time. Not to mention having a helpful red head talking in your ear giving directions. LOL... I like having the large roof hatch. There are many times I open mine and stand up, sit on the roof, watch things with the better higher angle of view.

Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020

Seven Truck Camper Videos - Seattle RV Show 2020 We spent several hours going through the Seattle RV Show on Saturday the 8th. Crowds weren't horrible so we were able to get into all the truck campers to take a bunch of video and make our observations. Quality was generally good. No real surprises since we keep an eye on the industry for anything exciting and new. My two show favorites were First In Show to the Arctic Fox 865 Mid Wet Bath and a close second to the NorthernLite 10-2. The NorthernLites were their usual nicely finished selves with the nice wood cabinetry being the best in show. We did have the pleasure of talking to the NorthernLite factory Rep for about half an hour unfortunately he decline an on camera interview. He did give some good information about the campers like the heat system doesn't have any vent pipes except to the tank areas. All the heat vents are actually return vents so they feel that design heats the living space first and behind the walls second with return air. The campers also come with a matt under the mattress that allows air to circulate preventing moisture under the mattress. All in all a good show. The last video has a Dodge 5500 4x4 based Class C we really liked. We looked at the Class B units too. My two winners in that category are the Winnebago Revel 4x4 and the TRAVATO. Enjoy the videos.

RE: Adding extra solar panel to 2019 Northern Lite

I have an old 67 watt thin film Unisolar panel. I added a new 170 watt GoPower mono crystal panel. Both have the same voltage rating and have worked very well together for about a year now. Or splurge and get two new panels.

RE: Need Help Fast

I feel for you having just gone through this scenario myself when my engine seized. Fortunately my brother has the same truck camper and he picked it up on his truck delivering it to my house and had a regular tow truck deliver my F-250. 3500+ dollars later, I have a really nice running rebuild with 1800 miles on it now. Best wishes for a speedy resolution to your truck issue.

RE: Funny, sad and embarrassing.....

As hard as you try, sometimes the best of plans are laid to rest. Glad there wasn't a fire.

RE: TR: The Road to winning a National Championship

Wow! What an adventure between logistics, distance, and weather. Quite an accomplishment of determination, congratulations... I guess for some reason you had to replace your factory fridge vent cover with a Red Green certified replacement...

RE: Step upgrade for my Arctic Fox

Just watched both videos. Nicely done, very informative. I have similar steps but don't use them due to interference issues with my slide out deck. The videos are both a year old, have you made any refinements to the original installation? Take care.

RE: Three Camping And Fishing Videos - An Excellent Weekend

That's why they call it "fishing" and not "catching" :-) Next year, I'm going to put some effort to fish Mosquito Lake, 25 miles awaf, still deep in the forest. Will need a boat and waders for that lake and it's much less developed. A wild shorelinr except for the small boat access area

RE: Three Camping And Fishing Videos - An Excellent Weekend

I am a little surprised we don't have more outdoors men here who enjoy fishing and camping like you did..I am always in for a good fishing or hunting story.. And what's better than pan fried trout,I grew up on them..LOL The fish were tasty. Good old truck camper kitchen and butter/salt to make a happy ending... Well, for the fisherman anyway.

RE: Upgrade truck suspension

I put Rancho 9000's all around my F250. Ride is much better. I found that turning them to the strongest setting worked best when loaded with TC.

RE: When will the 2020 Ford Super Duty show up?

The Seattle auto show is in a week or so. See the new trucks then, if I go.
