Rex Willet, the owner of Northstar Campers, and his highly-skilled crew are making excellent progress on the build of my 2016 Northstar Laredo SC truck camper. How long does it take to build a truck camper? Weeks? Months? Actually, not very long. About 11 days including a full day of testing and a final walk-through inspection. They began building it August 26 and will wrap things up around September 8, the day before I’m scheduled to pick it up. In the meantime, Rex Willet, will be sending me photos periodically to document the progress of the build. Stay tuned here and on my Instagram account to see this progress.
