    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...

    I love my water heater. I don't know offhand what kind it is (Atwood something I think), but I just lean out of bed and flip the switch before I get up and I have hot water when I'm ready for it....

    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...

    The kid tubes are pretty small (I'm eyeing some on my floor right now) but might come in bigger sizes.

    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!

    Popups with tent fold outs?

    Hi y'all.

    Are there any popups with foldouts besides Northstar and Outfitter? (And why the heck are only popup guys doing this? Lance had one but it's discontinued, and Northstar has them in...

    I tried to come up with a good inside shower option and ended up with a tent. (A big one, so an adult can wash kids in it, or so it can hold the potty as well as shower.) I couldn't find a place for...

    The Northstars as you know are a slight bit more posh than the FWC and ATCs (if you're trying to appeal to a non-camping spouse) but the latter are probably more rugged and certainly lower profile. ...

    If you think Northstars look like they are put together by Friday afternoon workers, you should see Palominos. :) (But they are priced appropriately.)

    The fit and finish is sort of bleh, but...

    If you detach the tiedowns from the truck, I think it's okay to level with the jacks, IF you have a camper that can be used while on the jacks. But yeah, don't level the truck/camper combo with the...

    Those "pull over now I have to go to the bathroom" moments happen and there's where the TC really shines and why I was willing to lose the spaciousness of a popup trailer. Also lunch. There have been...

    What happened? You got old! :)

    Thanks guys. I like the idea of an extra belly strap that's independent of the crossbars. I like to think Northstar attached them properly but I don't really know. The canoe is 50 lbs so I am hoping...
