SteveMight want to check out Northern Lites, they are built interior wise similar to European style. A big plus in my mind is the total sealed one piece fiberglass exterior.Re: Lance truck camper
HowardI bought a 2012 bronco 600 camper. in june of 2012. used it for two trips then on the third trip to southern utah the crank failed. I had to go into Escalante utah and get a room. it was under warranty so it was fixed for free but the camper sat in the repair shop until the end of November almost two months so i could'nt use it. the next summer the hinges on the back door decided to sieze up cost me 150.00 to have new hinges and it took a month to get the parts to fix again. this last summer in June 1 and 1/2 years after the first crank system broke. I was in wyoming and the crank failed again. I took it back to where I had bought it new and they said it was out of warranty and it would be 900.00 to have everything repaired, including hinges. I argued that it should be under warranty since the first one had failed, but it was no use. the camper then sat for another two months waiting for another crank so I couldn't use the camper again this time for the whole summer. I agree twe should ask for a class action law suit. these campers are junk and are not dependable and if there is one thing we need in a camper in the back country its something that is dependable. oh and my refrigerators mounts have all crack and are barely holding it in. The small closet door was ripped from its hinges from driving on rough road. The company I bought this from Access RV in Salt Lake city are not taking responsibility the camper, manufacture is not taking responsibility, and the manufacturer of the crank system won't take responsibility.I am fed up I will be selling this as soon as lay down the 900.00 to pay the bill.Maybe small claims court.I hear that a good pop up back road camper is called the "4 Wheeler". very dependable and sturdy.two things this Forest river product is not.Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
dare2goI think Northstar build some of the best truck campers on the American market, and certainly the best solutions for smaller trucks. This stems from their export experience to Australia, where Toyota Hilux and Isuzu DMax (both much lighter trucks) dominate the pick-up truck market. And they started early to integrate quality European fittings. Re: Northstar Freedom truck camper
David AI'd like the 10'er with less dinette, but having a restroom! Re: CampLite truck camper
Gerry FranklinRecently bought a 2012 used bronco. Many problems with the door. The hinges are off and despite repeated attempts by service people it is still out of alignment. Our first major trip, the water pump quit and had to be replaced and then the topper, 1,400 miles from home, the crank mechanism for the pop up failed. A plastic gear broke. Can you imagine making a crank gear out of plastic? The part was only available in the US. We had to cancel our vacation and head for home. I have no confidence in this unit and am selling it. cancel our vRe: Palomino Bronco folding truck camper
VincentI just purchased a 2007 Palomino Bronco 1500 and bolted it onto my 1990 Dodge Cummins Diesel 5spd. Everything works-impressed with heater & appliance function on 12volt. Getting 20 MPG at 60 MPH.Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
JohnI'm brand new to owning a camper. I bought a new bronco camper in 2013 but ended not using it at all until 2 weeks ago for one weekend so stupid me I'm out of warrenty. After using it for one day I took it in because the refridg didn't work on gas. It cost me $358.00 to find out that too much insulation was stuck in and in the wrong places around the refer. The insulation was also stuck into the fan so that it couldn't work. The repair guys said I was very lucky the whole thing didn't catch fire. Along with that lots of little things that show lousy workmanship and apparently no quaility control. Things like trim not screwed on, slid latch for panel over door fastened so far over it didn't even reach the panel, edging around counters that wouldn't stay attached, fill hose to water tank that wasn't pushed on all the way and was leaking, floor bubling up in front of the door, some of the screws holding the roof latches rusting out. Remember this was all on a brand new rig that had been used once over night. Before you buy one of these campers I suggest you look over every little thing on the inside and out.

Ron H.Trust me! The GM Colorado is an Isuzu. Re: Northstar Escape Pod truck camper
G Atsmaaaronet- You are TOTALLY wrong; not a single part is Toyota. Look under the hood- only GM engines here. Marshall- That was true with the Chevy LUV; actually it was a rebadged Isuzu. The Colorado was designed totally by GM in-house Re: Northstar Escape Pod truck camper

RustyMy interior lights won't work with battery or cable plugged into 110. Fuses and bulbs appear to be good. Any ideas?Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
RustySteve, I have a 2008 Palomino truck camper. There was a sheared pin in the distribution box under the sleeper overhead that runs the lift up and down. Just pull the distribution box off and replace the pin--30 cent shear pin. Hope this helps Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
Mikey MI HAD a 2010 1251sb on a 2006 F150 FX4 with a 6.5 ft bed. Put air bags on the truck for suspension help. Worked great. Took the darn thing to Baja Mexico on some world class washboard roads, and with a little care and common sense, the camper worked great for us. The secret to all the door problems is get it level. If you want to put the top up, drop the corner jacks as needed, and level it out. Keeps the camper from racking. Dealers don't tell you that, but it is really important for keeping the camper in working condition. Had it in rain, wind, dust, everything you can imagine, and it never let us down. I got rid of it so we could move on to a travel trailer as we are too old now to crawl over each other to get in and out of bed. Level, level, level. With no header over the door, you have to make it level, for it to work correctly and last. Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
lonniewhere can I get the price an location Re: Quicksilver truck camper
RandyI'm in Tampa, Florida. Does anyone out there have a used Quicksilver Truck camper for a full size Dodge for sale? roberts_r2@att.netRe: Quicksilver truck camper
Ron Smith I like them but where can I buy one and how about the price?Re: Quicksilver truck camper
Bronco PeggThe Bronco 600 is loaded on my 2005 Chevy Colorado. Air Lift 'lifts' were installed on rear and the truck/camper are level. I'm waiting for extended towing mirrors and tie downs to be installed. Then we are off to the scale for a weigh in. The previous owner hauled the Bronco 600 on Chevy S10. This small, cozy unit is sweet! I will not miss 'tent' camping. Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
gotliedtob1251 shows 731 kg.went over weighbridge with standard features went 1200kg.overweight on rear axle 500kg so illegal to use in australia.Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
MontanaI have the 1250 and when I turn on the interior lights, the tail lights and all the exterior marker lights turn on. I can't find any place where wires are shorted. Anybody else had that problem?Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
MearlI have a full size Dodge, don't see where Dodge is listed. Will it fit? If so where is a dealer in the Dallas TX area and price. Re: Quicksilver truck camper
DawnWould it work on a 2003 Chevrolet sportside?Re: Quicksilver truck camper
John CockrellSteve P. Congratulations,you just got shafted like I did. These campers are just plain junk, they are poorly engineered and constructed. We need to all get together and file a class action law suit. Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
AndrewNew to the truck camper world. I have a 07 dodge 1500 ram 2x4 4 doors long horn edition. i think is a 8 foot bed need some held choosing a camper. don't know is a 8.2 or 9.3 bigfoot will work with my truck.Re: Bigfoot 1500 series truck camper
KayLJust took my 2011 Bronco 600 on a 2005 Toyota Tacoma with Firestone air bags through some of the toughest roads you can imagine. This little camper isn't really made for this kind of roughness but it and the truck and my poor dog made it through. We only lost the outside door to the refrigerator workings. Drawer slides open (have to tape it shut), back doors don't close as others have mentioned (it does hang over the back of the truck), the roof holds it shut when closed, but Dang! it made it!Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
billDo quick silver. Have campers for 2 adults that have soft sidesRe: Quicksilver truck camper
DouglasI own a diesel pusher,, very nice But this is very cozy and great idea... I will pass it on. ThanksRe: Quicksilver truck camper
Sad OwnerI have a 2010 Bronco 1250 Camper. I am having problems with the back door, When the camper is level the back door will not open, You have to angle the camper to get it to open, There is no structural material above the door frame from keeping it from shifting causing the door to ride and stick causing damage to the frame. It is a bad set up.Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
KathyWe have a 2005 Bronco truck camper. Last night - with the pop-up folded in - that the inside lights do not work. Is there something wrong with the electrical or is there something that keeps the lights from coming on when the top is folded? The cooler works and the refrigerator operates but not the lights. The water pump to the hot water heater came on for a brief moment and then turned off. Thank you.Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
VinceThis is an awesome idea that is long overdue in north America-I have seen these types of add ons in Australia and Europe.Re: Northstar Escape Pod truck camper

1251 Bronco Sept 09Heading out on year 2 with our camper - looking for a web site that shares stories - anyone know of truck camper sites or blogs? Re: Palomino Bronco truck camper
aaronetI don't know where you all get your information but the Chevy Colorado is a Toyota Tacoma rebadged, there may be a few different engine options but for the most part it's a Toyota.Re: Northstar Escape Pod truck camper
USer8Colorados are great strong vehicles but this is a moot point... no one can afford a $3500 bed to put a $4000 camper on.... and those who can, buy a bigger truck with a bigger camper anyway.Re: Northstar Escape Pod truck camper
