Just Remembered, the RV Park Campground Santaland in North Pole, south of Fairbanks, did not open this summer. Was not sure why.

Found the reason on line: Santaland RV Park

Several years ago, we put a tall LEAR topper on our Dodge 4X4 pickup, I built a couple of 24" wide beds along each side and we took off for Alaska for 3 months. It WAS the trip of a lifetime as we traveled every little line on the map and went down many old mining roads. In route to the Arctic Circle, we were confronted with a forest fire and had to turn around, BUMMER.
All I can say is-----DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS- We're going back.

RSchleder, Sounds a lot like what we did in the early '70s with a 3 tier camper shell/topper except the pickup was a 2x4 Chevy. Our first RV. With just the two of us & still in our 20s, it was a neat set up. Really enjoyed it. Never used it to go to Alaska, just around the Southwest.

We have a low topper now. I have considered doing the trip just with the pickup. It is not as roomy; we are limber. The '70s rig had a door in back, not a tailgate & lift, dealing with getting in & out, would not be as easy for us.

No shower and the room we have in the Scamp compared to the topper is a consideration as well. May just take the Scamp.

But going with the topper could work, much of the time we would be with our kids anyway, once in Alaska.

Thanks! for the info. & the encouragement.
