Rack It



For 2015, Northstar completely overhauls their popular 650SC, a self-contained short-bed pop-up truck camper for full-size trucks.  Then Northstar teases us about the biggest Northstar Camper, ever.

Some truck camper manufacturers build the truck campers they believe their customers are asking for.  If they get enough requests for high faucets, they put high faucets in their campers.  They believe giving the customers what they want will result in more sales, and happier customers, and it usually does.

Other truck camper companies have their own internal time-tested logic.  They may hear customer requests and see market trends that deviate from their core logic, and they stick to their guns and build the product they believe in, year after year.  These companies often own a niche within the truck camper marketplace and standing firm with that niche has brought them great success.

Northstar Campers is one company that seems to have a foot in both camps.  On one foot, they stand firm with wood-frame, hung-wall, non-basement, non-slide hard-side and pop-up truck campers with cassette toilet systems.  Thatís their niche, and theyíve stuck to it for over five successful decades.

On the other foot, Northstar is also listening carefully to customer and dealer feedback and looking for opportunities other companies havenít recognized or fully-capitalized on.  This explains why Northstar leads the truck camper market internationally, builds full-size flatbed truck campers, and continuously finds ways to push the functionality per-foot envelope.

Speaking of standing firm and pushing envelopes, Northstar is announcing its first truck camper for the 2015 model year; the 2015 Northstar 650SC.  Itís a ground-up redesign of their most popular pop-up truck camper, and a sign of things to come from this family-owned truck camper manufacturer.  And just when you think youíve got Northstar pegged, they tease us with what might become one of the most talked about campers of 2014.

To tell us more about the 2015 Northstar 650SC, we talked to Rex Willett, President of Northstar Campers.
