I think I read the weight for the 1 ton truck model at around 3000LBS.

They write that the starting price is $130 odd k. So, I deduce that this would be for the model that fits the Ford Ranger...?

And yeah, looking at photos, no bathroom...not even a cassette toilet.

For +$135,000 I'll stick with my Northstar.

Well, certainly not the prettiest girl in school, and with a $130K+ price tag, she's not likely to get many invites to the prom either. As with all new businesses, I wish them luck, and feel they're going to need all of it they can get.

I don’t really understand who they are building those for at 135K to start. But, in a few years, I’m sure we will see them all over the place. [emoticon]

Missing a lot of stuff. How is it attached to the truck also??

One thing I think they got right is getting rid of the dinette. What a waste of sitting space a dinette is. That’s the worst part about my North Star.

Jim:

They are positioning into the "expedition overlanding" cohort it appears. Competing directly with truck campers like OverlandEx here--> where pop-up truck campers start at $72,000 CAD. And competing with truck camper expedition manufacturers like Nimbl pop-up ($121,000 with flatbed tray without truck)....and many others. Buyers seem to be lined up around the block to buy them.... all.

I read on the Loki site that they are opening a manufacturing plant in Colorado, too. I'd bet that they will probably open a manufacturing facility in western Canada before too long. They will likely do extremely well. Especially these years, with the entire RV manufacturing industry working at more than 100% capacity.

....probably attached through removable panels inside the camper near the 4 corners...onto those aircraft cargo attachment rails. But I really don't know for sure.

The jacks I believe are hidden inside the body (the camper shell wall) and drop down, or, slide out, and pivot down.

There's probably a small yuppie group that would shell out a pile of money for that. I know I grew up during the era where the value of money vs product was pounded into me. I wouldn't care if it had gold plated taps and door handles. there's no justification for that price.


This commentary pretty much sums up why the mainstream RV industry is the way that it is today. That is, poorly constructed, lacking in quality control, etc..

The reality is that quality product costs money, and people touting the whole "value" aspect are the ones that will buy the cheapest unit on the lot.

I wish this new outfit all the best, but I suspect they've already priced themselves out of the market.
