Standard Features Included in all Australian Ultimate Models

Redarc BMS 1230S2


 Our world class campers are fully self contained off road capable truck campers and at the heart of these is the Redarc Battery Management System.

A reliable power supply should be top of your list.  We never sell a camper without a Redarc BMS1230S2.

Redarc RedVision


Another great innovation from Redarc, the Redvision system allows you to control and monitor multiple on-board devices. One screen has all the info you need and you can even control and monitor everything via a phone app.

Amptron Lithium Batteries


 Amptron 200 amp hour LiFePo4 battery complete with a Cell Balancing Battery Management System essential to maintain the life of Lithium batteries.

Options: 300 amp hour and 400 amp hour lithium upgrades available, also 260 amp hour AGM

Remote Controlled Legs or Jacks


 All our campers are fitted with Happicac remote controlled electric jacks. These make loading and unloading a simple 5 minute task. Raise and lower all four  camper jacks  with the push of a button. Alternatively you can adjust each jack individually. 

Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner


 The Houghton Belaire is a low profile, lightweight genuine reverse cycle air conditioner. Using the latest technology they have made a super efficient unit which is the lightest in it's class. Starts and runs easily using a Honda 2, can even run for hours powered by the lithium battery! 

2500 watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter


 Cotek SD2500 pure sine wave inverter with remote control. Mains power runs through the inverter when connected and when you have no external 240 volt power source (mains or generator) you simply switch on the inverter and have 240volt power to all your power outlets in the camper from the battery. 

Crank out Side Awning


  A quality awning made by Carefree of Colorado, a massive 3.1 metres long and 3.1 metres wide. Cranks out in just a few seconds. Legs attach to the ground or back to the camper.  Designed to take the Carefree annex. Can be used on and off the vehicle. Option: A second side awning can be fitted on 10-2 models 

Electric Rear Awning


 We now have as standard the Carefree of Colorado motorised rear awning. When fully extended it is  approx 7' (2.10m).   These are a great addition to the camper - so easy to set up. Handy in the rain. Has LED lights as well. Option: Can be fitted with a motion sensor to automatically retract in high wind. 

Fully Enclosed Annex


 Made by Carefree of Colorado naturally, their 'Add-A-Room', or annex has a floor and side curtain or skirt, and is a huge 3.10 metres square. Designed for fast set up and pack up. Full gauze with roll up block out screens and roll down clears. When travelling, how much time do you spend indoors??? 

Roof Mounted Solar Panels


 Each camper is fitted with 2 x 100 watt eArche solar panels  from Solar 4 RVs. Their expertise together with the extensive research and product testing  makes Solar 4 RVs the obvious choice. Flexible solar panels are a perfect fit for our moulded fibreglass campers. Option: Add  additional 100 watt panels. 

Portable Solar Panels


 Similar to the roof mounted panels, each camper comes with 2 x 100 watt eArchesolar panels from Solar 4 RVs, fitted with 5 metre extension cables and Anderson plugs. The camper has external Anderson plugs wired directly to the solar input of the Redarc BMS. Perfect. 

Remote Fantastic Vent


 The Fantastic Vent is an absolute must have in campers. Two way (in and out) fan, can be set to temperature or to run manually with 13 speed settings. Keeps the air fresh.  Helps to ensure a good nights sleep even on the hottest of nights. Remote Controlled. 

More Standard Features

180 Litre Fridge Freezer 12volt 240volt Gas


 A decent sized fridge is not often available in slide on truck campers, but it is always one of our most appreciated inclusions. Runs on 240 volt when available, 12 volt (only when the vehicle engine is running), and LP gas, which we have found to be extremely efficient, at other times. Mirrored doors standard. 

Complete Bedroom Package


 Northern Lite campers come with the Complete Bedroom Package. Most importantly, they are all full queen sized beds with North/South configuration. Nothing else works. Double beds and East/West configurations are for singles.   When travelling, a good nights sleep is most important. 

Solid Timber Cabinetry With Quality Fittings


 The Northern Light cupboards and drawers are made by cabinetmakers from solid Sapele timber, which is lighter and stronger than most other options and definitely looks better. They feature top quality hinges and gas struts and have ball bearing rollers on the drawers. 

Shower and Toilet


 All of our campers come with a separate bathroom,complete with shower and toilet,  a towel rail, a shaving cabinet, vanity with basin and a cassette toilet where possible. Also a roof vent with an exhaust fan.  Its all you need! 

Stove and Oven


3 Burner Stove with Oven. Features self igniting burners and a stylish smoked glass stove cover that doubles as a splash back. Has a range hood with 12 volt fan and light.  

No. 1 selling RV stove in the USA.

Stainless Steel Sink


 This high grade stainless steel sink has to be the largest sink ever in a Slide on  truck camper. Has a proper laminated sink cover to match the bench top, not one of those flimsy plastic covers. 

Jensen Stereo


 Latest model Jensen stereo, with 3 station speaker system, 4 internal  and 2 external speakers. Speakers are selectable. Has a clock and alarm. Full connectivity with most media. Great sound. 



 56cm  (22”) high definition LED TV with built in DVD player. On a swing out bracket with a locking feature for travelling. Can be viewed from dinette/lounge area or from the queen bed in the cabover. 



 We generally use Sharp Microwaves as they are recognised as the best in Australia.  If needed, the microwave can be run off the house battery through the inverter. 

Twin 9kg Gas


Two 9kg Gas Bottles mounted on a slide out tray complete with an automatic change over system that switches from the empty gas bottle to the full gas bottle so that your fridge and appliances will keep running.     

They are both full. It’s all good.

Gas Hot Water


 These gas hot water systems are proven to be the most energy efficient on the market. We have never had a problem in any of the campers we have sold. 

18000 BTU Heater


 These gas furnaces vent the burnt gas outside but keep the heat inside. They are so good. Built for Canadian climates with a thermostat control. Gotta love being warm in winter. 

still more standard features

LP Gas Monitor Mopeka Tank Check


The Mopeka Check Sensor works on most LPG tanks and allows you to monitor the level of propane using the free Mopeka Check app on your smartphone or tablet and/or

monitored with the stand-alone Mopeka Check Double Monitor.

Dual Pane Windows Screens and Blinds


 Dual pane windows are a great insulator and being acrylic reduces the weight of the camper. They are less likely to break and open from the bottom which is good if you leave a window open and it rains.  Two way blinds and screens. 

Heki Skylight Dual Pane Screen and Blind


 Heki skylight has dual pane for better insulation plus it has a combination full block out blind or fly screen option. Absolutely essential on hot nights in conjunction with the Fantastic Vent.  Five star accommodation with a view of the stars. 

Torklift Fastguns


These industry best stainless steel quick release turnbuckles will save time loading and unloading your camper. Using fastguns we can easily load or unload our camper in 5 minutes. Torklift Fastguns ensure your camper is anchored to the tray or chassis at the correct tension. 

Quality Vehicle Connection


 Camper - Vehicle connection is via the Anderson Mid Power Spec Pak. Twin Anderson 75 amp connections for the Redarc BMS and Fridge (when motor running) plus 8 auxiliary connections for the tail lights and reversing cameras etc. 

12 volt and USB Outlets


 12 volt outlet with twin USB outlets. One in the kitchen, one in the dinette one in the bedroom  and we will  even put one outside under the awning  if you want.  The 12 volt can also be converted to twin USB's.

Door, Roof Access Ladder and Rear Patio


 All Northern Lite Campers have a new entrance door that has tinted glass in both windows and comes standard with pleated shades on both. They are equipped with a heavy duty rear ladder to allow access to the roof and also feature a patio style rear bumper and a swing out entry assist handle. 

Huge Basement With Drawer


Basement or Underfloor storage.

A huge storage area with a massive drawer on one side, 8' or approx. 2600mm,  which fits the entire annex with room to spare.

Two Way Folding Steps


 Aluminium two way folding steps are great. They are lighter and fold up when travelling and for access to the towbar. Folded up with the camper off the truck allows the camper to sit lower to the ground making it more stable and allowing an easy two step entrance. 

Winegard Rayzar Automatic Antenna


 The latest Winegard Rayzar antenna with built in 12 volt signal booster. Automatically scans and  finds all available TV stations. Works with Horizontal or Vertical signals and receives signal without being aimed directly at transmitter. 

Reverse Osmosis Water Filter


 This system has a separate 10 litre pressurised holding tank so that you always have a supply of 99.9% pure reverse osmosis filtered drinking water on hand. Now you can fill your camper freshwater tank, even from non-potable water sources, as you will always have a supply of safe, clean drinking water.  

LED Lighting Inside and Outside


 Our campers are all fitted with LED lighting that significantly reduces power consumption. There are 19 LED lights and they are top of the range "warm LEDs" that produce more natural light with less glare  and far less heat. The outside lights have an easy swap amber lens which attract less insects 

The Water Works


Check out all the Water System features of all Northern Lite Australian Ultimate models. 

240 volt Wiring


 We use the CMS Electracom 240 volt wiring system. The CMS double pole system is extremely safe to use and complies with all Australian Standards.  



 The ‘clamshell’ moulded fiberglass construction of the Northern Lite campers makes them the strongest yet lightest slide on truck camper available. They are built from the outside in, not just panels stapled together. Build quality should be one of your top priorities when considering purchasing any RV.

Full Training & Support


 When you buy a Northern Lite we don't

send you on your way with a pile of user manuals.  We spend the time to show you how everything works, generally over a few days and usually camped close by.  It takes a bit of time to learn how to load and unload the camper properly and to become comfortable with the whole setup. This gives you and us a greater peace of mind. Even after this we are available 7 days a week if you need to ask a question or if you have a problem. Most of our customers have stayed in touch since buying their camper and and some get together for trips away.

Australian Ultimate Models


 The Northern Lite Australian Ultimate Campers are widely recognised as the best fully self sufficient all purpose slide on truck camper available. The moulded fibreglass construction makes it best suited to all Australian road and off road conditions. Boasting the largest range of standard features in a slide on camper, these Australian Ultimate models are the complete package. Absolutely everything listed in the Standard Features is included with the camper. We don't sell you a camper then tell you it costs extra for an air conditioner, awning, turnbuckles, battery, gas bottles, etc etc etc. 

Floorplans 8-11EX Ultimate


The  Northern Lite  8-11 Australian Ultimate Floorplans have stayed much the same for a long time. The reason is simple - they work the best.   

These floorplans are the most popular by far in the USA and Canada and has just the right balance and feel. We have been travelling in ours for over 9 years and have yet to see a better floorplan.

Four Season Campers


These campers are the top selling five star rated fiberglass  truck camper in North America. The clam shell design makes them the best true four season truck campers. Built  for cold Canadian winters means they can handle hot Australian summers.  The reality is that you can’t insulate a PopTops or slide outs. That one foot of height you save with pop tops is just a piece of vinyl. They do not keep the cold or heat in or out so heating and/or air conditioning is mostly  useless.

Interior Colour Schemes


 There are Six Interior Colour Schemes available for the Northern Lite Australian Ultimate Camper Models.

If you later change your mind, or damage a cushion or part of the interior, you can replace the damaged part or the entire interior colour scheme if you wish,  and it is really easy to do.
