Northstar TC’s make 3 models that are 84” wide and 8’ tall with a roof top AC.

Thanks everyone for the advice, I will send some emails to Mfgers of the ones I am interested in and if that does not work look for storage options.


The manufacturers will simply parrot the specs off their brochures/websites. They will not tell you the actual story. You will need to go to the dealerships and measure for yourself.

Lance 815 would fit. It's 7" narrower than most. On my truck I'm 10'-6" but the bed is 32" which means total height including AC would be 7'-10". You could easily gain about 5" more clearance by going with a low profile AC unit.

Any unit with a basement isn't going to fit so you can rule them out quickly. Unfortunately, that is most of the newer units.

The bad is it has small tanks, even smaller wet bath and only 6-2 inside. But I've been using mine for 11 years now and it's still in great shape.
