Truck Camper Magazine has reviewed the 2017 Northern Lite 10-2 EX CD Special Edition, a hard side, non-slide, wet bath truck camper.
After a devastating fire burned the Northern Lite factory to the ground in February 2014, the Kelowna, British Columbia manufacturer had a new facility, new fiberglass molds, new tools, new jigs and had resumed production with the same management and production team by the following December.
As stunning as the 10-month factory rebuild was, the debut of the company's first all-new model was equally compelling, the magazine says. The Northern Lite 10-2 EX CD Special Edition was proof that Northern Lite was not only back on its feet, but ready to chart a new and exciting future for its popular non-slide two-piece clam shell fiberglass truck campers. If there’s a better comeback story in the history of truck campers, Truck Camper Magazine says they don't know of it.
