RE: Buying a new camper, which one?

I have owned a truck camper in the past, heck I have owned just about every type of RV except a class A and a toy hauler. We already have an Open Range 318 but that's for paved road camping. What I need your help with is which one to buy? I'm looking to buy a truck camper to take to Tuktoyaktuck NWT next summer as well as bush camping / ATVing around here. We have narrowed it down to either a Northern Lite 8-11 Classic or an Arctic Fox 811. The obvious difference is the more room with the slide on the Arctic Fox. What I'm looking for your opinions about craftsmanship, reliability and all round good product life, over time. In got a 1 ton short box diesel so I not to worried about weight, and I know there are fewer models to chose from with the short box, but thats the cards I have been dealt. Your opinions are much appreciated. Soup. If you spend most of the time outside and it is just you or you & your partner....Northern Lite. Slides are really nice if you have kids and/or big dogs. And spend time in the camper when camping (with crud weather). But slides add weight, complexity, and more maintenance or things can happen....

RE: How many people use the patio on toyhaulers

We don't. And I made sure we got one with no patio sides/fence option as I didn't want to deal with it loading and unloading toys.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

(Yesterday) Dragged it home from camping over the weekend. Unloaded some of it and parked it. Be going again in a couple weeks again and again....

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Well un-winterized the toyhauler and started getting ready for a riding weekend at East Fort Rock in a couple days. (Central Oregon, near Bend)

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Opened the rear ramp door up.....and started up the RZR for 15 minutes. Got to keep the battery fresh. And looked around making sure no leaks or issues from all the rain we've had.

RE: License plate locations in different states with TC mounted

Interesting... Oregon, truck campers have their own ''K'' plates (K is for Kamper I guess plates.) I never move my pickup plate. Which is a ''T'' Plate. LOL. If I have my enclosed trailer hooked up then you could only see it's ''P'' for Permanent Plate.

RE: DRW plus TC combo - your recs

I love my combo. 2016 Ram 3500 4*4 Asian, Cummins Crewcab dually Laramie 2011 Arctic Fox 1150 we've had since new... This is about a $75k combo now. I'd spend money on the new or newish truck...skip the loaded leather stuff if not a daily driver to get newer. Then get the newest camper you could pay cash for after you have the truck ready.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

I learned from Northwood that regarding the triple slide model, they have prototyped one, but don't have plans to produce it in the near future. I also learned they've discontinued the double slide model 996. Bummer as we really like ours! If that's true about the triple slide, side door model....that's a big bummer. A big gap in their line, if you ask me. And frankly a side door model is our most likely upgrade from our 2011 AF1150.... :( If they don't have one.......then their loss.

RE: Spokane, WA RV Show, January 19-22

Wish there'd be more TC at every show.....they might sell more that way......Salem, OR has about 4 shows around here a year.....be hundreds of RV's and like 2 TC sometimes. Or it will be only like 10 Lance TC and nothing else. At least Apache goes to the Portland shows and takes several differnt lines.

RE: Super truss plus weight distribution hitch close to ground

I have a 48'' extension....my round bars have scraped some pavement over the years. Just make sure the lowest thing is the bars and chains, not your wires. LOL.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

Slide outs on long truck campers are what allow us to keep using the truck camper. 10 year old, 2 year old and a 5 month old plus an 80# Rott take up room. Yes we have a large toyhauler too but when we want to just stay small and go camping like for a weekend the TC with a large slideout works great. The beautiful thing about camping it there are a million ways of doing it. And its a great time no matter if its sleeping in a tent or sleeping in a million dollar diesel pusher.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

I thought that might be one but doesnt look like enough room between the door and the slide to have another one. Even if there was one in between it would be pretty bad angle because the slide would be in the way. You have to hope that this is a preproduction model and items will be tweaked before making a manufacturing run for the customers. I would not be surprised if Northwood is following this thread and taking notes on our reactions. Ha ha....I hope so...I'll offer my truck for a test run and my family would love to test it out for the summer and give a report. I'll post it all over social media too. Dear AF, love our 2011 1150...I can be there tomorrow.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

And why would shore power ever be moved to the ''wrong'' side?
2BLAZERS 12/28/16 03:57pm Truck Campers
RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

I thought I saw a speaker grill above the shore power connector near the outside light on the right side next to the cab over. I also did not see a fresh water fill with these picture angles... I think your right....got to have tunes outside to annoy the neighbors.....

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

$3800 for a generator? If that's right, that's pretty high. I noticed that too. Would pay for a lot of solar and batteries......already have a Honda 2000. But really would depend on what the dealers are offering as a package deal when it came time to actually buy.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

Very cool.....at least it says side door and ''Sofa Slide Topper'' as an option. Can't wait to see what it weighs though.....I'd be really interested in trading in our 2011 1150 for this triple slide if the weight is not much heavier. Just cause it is a triple slide....the slides could be smaller and the weight does not have to be like 500 pounds more....maybe I'll skip the genny and opt for all the solar panels and my Honda 2000. Hopefully it is revealed in details soon!!

RE: What Length Are They Really Referring To?

This article is almost misleading too.... It could also mean that if your toyhauler is 34 feet long your going to scrap trees on the inside corners of the access road with your trailer.....ask me how I know. Basically everyone does it differently..... Oregon state parks are pretty good about it....they measure each spots blacktop length and have pictures on the reservation system of each spot so its easy to know what your getting into. BLM and Forest Service ones are usually the great unknown....the sites might be 75 feet long pull throughs but the access road might be very tight with tight turns from the 40s..... For our truck camper only camping I always just look for 30 foot spots gives some nice room for the stairs to land on pavement as some sites the parking area end in a tree or shrubs. Bottom line is there is no consistent standard around the country.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Added some gas and Seafoam to the fuel station and ran the genset...drained the water heater and blew out the water lines...set up two Dry Z Airs inside. Winter coming up in WA...sigh. You bother with the pink stuff? I did the same on Sunday. Drained fresh water, grey, water heater, blew out with air added some pink stuff to the traps.....added some pink stuff to the fresh water for the pump.... Did the same for our truck camper too. We usually freeze its usually just 30 for the morning..... a really cold snap would be 25 degrees.
