My final motivation to move to a fiberglass RV will be when it comes time to trade in my current R-Vision TT and also trade off the FJ and get a Tundra pick-up truck....avoiding that expense in retirement for a while!

Happy Camping!
We currently own a 19 ft Escape . That being said have owned 2 campers 1 9 ft and a 9 1/2 . We have seen the Northern lite camper here and we're very very impressed . It had to be the nicest camper we have ever seen . Liked many features of campers so easy to take off to go camping , less cost with insurance , tags etc. more storage and better water capacity . If someday want to go back to campers this one is at the top of our list . Pat

Cari and I had the opportunity to tour a NL TT at a Seattle dealership several years ago. It was a nice little trailer!

We really liked spending time in Northern Lite Truck Campers at the various RV shows we visited...and it was #1 on our list for a while, but didn't like the idea of having to get out of the cab to do something as simple as a potty run...then we saw a Sportsmobile van and it was all over. We had our custom rolling bed&bath the next year (2010). Then we pondered the idea of adding a great room to our van... and well... the rest is history : )

Our setup is a bit extreme... we can sleep, potty, shower, cook, relax in either rig. The van is Cari's DD and gets ~15-17mpg fully loaded with two week's of supplies... or ~13-15 when towing (Parkliner also has two week's of supplies). We can live with that since it is so flexible.
