Northstar Campers have been around a long time.

 

Wood frame construction.

 

But they are really well built.

 

MUCH better than something like the Palomino brand.

 

That one in the ad looks like it has been well cared for.

 

Clean.

We are on our second Northstar 600ss and love it.

Had  FWC  for a few years and it did the job great.

At the time we had the FWC we did a lot of off road trips (Baja,etc.)

But now we tend to spend longer times on the road and the Northstar has a lot of advantages.

Number one is the queen size bed, then all the extra storage under the bed.

Also the Northstar is much more desert friendly as it has more windows and screens 

which means a lot to us as we live and explore the desert on 90% of our trips.

Durable yes we take it the same areas that we took our FWC and have had no 

failures of of construction or systems and ours is fully loaded.

Yes it requires some thought as to weight, hence air bags and more driver input when

on or off road.

if you plan on a lot of off road use make sure you mount it correctly, we built a frame to stop any movement 

did the same with our FWC as it is known that the mounting points on the FWC can tear loose.(ours did!)

Hope this answers some of your concerns.

 

Les,lqhikers

Thanks. Pretty cool of you to add positive input even though it’s not a 4wc    
we were looking for a 4wc even visited the factory.  But this one came along.  
thank again
