About Us

Every Tradition has a Beginning.

Our History of Excellence

Northstar Campers has been calling Cedar Falls, Iowa home since 1955 when the Willett family began manufacturing truck campers. The company was founded by Ralph (Tex) Willett, who along with his son Robert (Chuck), ran the company under the name of Texson Campers.

"Everything is engineered perfectly and logically on our Northstar - better than any other camper we've owned (including Bigfoot, Forest River, and Winnebago.) We can really count on it in middle of nowhere. The layout is spacious, usable and homey. The windows are fantastic in all weather, we love the wet bath and sleep like babies in the queen bed."

~ Travis and Angie Z

The father/son duo helped launch the company, building a reputation unmatched in the industry and creating a strong foundation for Chuck’s son, Rex. Rex took over the company in the 1980s, operating under the Northstar Campers name, which continues to this day.

We’ve been selling our campers to dealers since 1961, and Northstar’s campers are sold across the world to help families enjoy the outdoors and camping. From our facility at the corner of Leversee Road and Airline Highway in Cedar Falls, we’ve remained committed to improving our truck campers using proven construction technique while integrating modern materials. This allows our product to continue to stay ahead of the industry, both in quality and longevity.
