    Finally installed the pedestal. Compared to the two-legged setup, it's nice. You can actually slide around the table without hitting the legs. You can even sit at the short ends. Table goes up, table...

    As far as fitting 2 adults and 2 kids and a dog, umm...snug. We do that in a Northstar tc800 which is a bit larger than a FWC (or most of them anyway). We can sleep 3 in the cabover bed. If you're...

    I've purchased but not yet installed or tested a single heavy-duty adjustable pedestal. It can be held at any height within its range and seemed adequately beefy when we were playing with it. We...

    I don't know, but do contact Northstar. They are usually prompt and helpful, no matter where you got your camper. Good luck!

    We have a factory installed "boat rack" on our Northstar TC800. I don't know what they were thinking--it's 2 crossbars 6 ft. apart positioned towards the rear. Probably good for a little jonboat but...

    Scoutman, what kind of lift system do you have in your Starcraft? I ended up with a Northstar for more elbow room, no bunk yet but thinking about it. The HECO lift in mine(which I don't think the...

    A lot of people do it, usually those with the big hardsides. You'll want electric jacks. The nice thing about a popup is that you don't feel that HUGE so you don't feel like you HAVE to leave the...

    Mine is a Northstar tc800. They're small enough to still be awkward. Good sources of ventilation, too. :P

    We put our folding chairs and shower tent and other odd items in there. I'd miss it, pain in the butt that it is.

    Thanks Doc. I've considered those (and there's a good discussion on them at WTW) but I think it won't work for us. I'm worried that it'll wobble with such a long table--I think it's 4 ft. long. And...
  11. Looking for a table leg replacement for NS TC800 dinette

    Howdy!

    We usually have to use the dinette bed in our Northstar which means detaching the table. It's on 2 pedestal legs and generally a pain. Has anyone found a better option? Thanks!

    (I have...

    These are manual roofs, and there's no reason for them not to be. We have the tc800 (8 ft floor) and the manual lift is absurdly easy with nothing on the roof. It's pretty darn easy with a 50lb boat...

    The newer appliances are nicer. But you could replace them for the price of new vs. used if you're a tiny bit handy.

    Wouldn't you notice if you were in the cabover and it tilted enough to be restrained by the tiedowns? Surely there would be a clunk. The center of gravity is the same whether it's in the bed of a...

    Yeah. Adults can sit back there too, but they might get trapped by the kids so they usually don't. :)

    The jacks on my camper let me drop it onto a dolly about 10" off the ground--it's just the standard electric jacks installed by Northstar. I bet yours will get you onto any trailer you're willing to...

    TC at Mineral King?

    Hey y'all!

    The campgrounds at Mineral King (Sequoia/Kings Canyon) are listed as "tent only" with no RVs or trailers allowed. I suspect it's due to the size of the sites and (even more so) the...

    Could it be a home made version of the Torklift rail? I know TCs aren't exactly ADA compliant but I'd expect a commercially available railing to not drop so low at the end (even though it would...

    I use a mortar tub for my outside shower and just carefully carry it away for disposal. I...

    No no I mentioned the Lance in passing. Totally fair! I didn't think they're still making them as I couldn't find them on the website but I will investigate further...although I kinda like a popup!
