RE: Ordering my new Arctic Fox..option questions

I'd ask about replacing the sliding window on front of camper with a 1 piece unit. It solved our water coming in the sliding window while driving in rain for 6 months a year.....the rain hits that like a pressure washer when driving at speed.

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

What do they offer for window packages these days? Are single panes still the norm?? I would consider duels...will check the website but I had them in my older 1150 and it was worth the cost as we used ours year round. Marked it for the better windows....I believe it was ThermoPane.... Now that could be one thing they change moving from 2018 to 2019....a lot have gone to the european style windows that don't have all the framing. We ordered the better windows...if it changes to an even better option, we will take it for sure.

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

I've always like the AF 1150 dry bath. The 1150 is an old model that's been around for a long time. In 2005 we almost bought one but instead opted for the Eagle Cap 1150 (now discontinued) which was lighter in weight. Do you know what the newest 1150 will weigh? I'm sure close to the 5k or 5,500 fully loaded up for camping. Our current setup is hard to keep under the 14k GVW of the truck. But always under the axle ratings.... But note my truck has 85 gallons of diesel under the bed if fully topped off thanks to Titan Tanks. Titan has a 85 gal replacement tank?? awesome...I want one. It is two tanks....55 gallon replacement tank where the stock tank was. And then a 30 gallon tank that goes where the spare tire had been. Spare tire gets carried on a front hitch or rear hitch racks...

RE: Didn't use the camper at all this year.

This is why I just booked a camping trip at Ft Steven, Oregon in October. Memaloose St Park in the Columbia Gorge in April of 2018 And then Beverly Beach Oregon Coast first weekend of May 2018. And with a few others that are riding trips/dry camps I have planned with friends...I like to keep the calendar full otherwise other things fill it up..... :) So when things come up......''o sorry, we are out of town'' or ''we already have things on the calendar that weekend with friends''

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

Can you customize new camper without going into high-pricing? We ended up with 2 top-class campers and when 1 delivers very convenient side entry, the other has way more storage and more comfortable interior. Even they have similar floor plan, it is the 2 inches lower step, extra 6" of countertop, or 2 more inches of shower pan that makes big difference. So ideally for us would be combine the best from 2 designs, but that seems impossible. I think for a real custom you'd have to go with Host or another small custom builder....

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

Sorry...we actually don't know what they are changing from the 2018s to the 2019. We will be going from a 2011 so the nice rear bumper and step system came about in 2012 or 13....the electric awning was a few years ago....so we will be getting 8 years worth of changes. The 2018 to 2019 changes are completely unknown. The inside radius roof I believe started in 2017 model or so. I would like to to do close to 200 watts of power....would be nice to never need to plug in except for A/C. Note we have 3 kids so every light and tv is on....LOL. We still have trips planned for at least the fall in the current TC....we do have a toyhauler so can live without the TC for a few months. Likely just craigslist and post to facebook groups when going up for sale but not until we know more of a date of the new being delivered.

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

Congratulations, but what do you expect to gain or putting it another way, what are they changing for 19? We were told $38k for the 2018....he's hoping that with us putting in an order with a deposit now that the factory will honor the same pricing on the 2019. At least for this unit.

2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

https://i.imgur.com/Aq8QSD3l.jpg We have loved our 2011 Arctic Fox 1150 so much decided to upgrade for next summer.....so sent off a deposit to Apache and now we wait 8-10 months for our 2019 1150 to come. We looked into trading in for a 2018 now but Apache didn't have any. And nothing coming until maybe early 2018.....so we just filled in an order form for 2019 and maybe they'll make some more improvements. So wait a little longer and have the first of the 2019s. Been several improvements over the year we thought would be nice..... So, LED lights everywhere. The nice step system. Electric awning. Higher roof line over the front half. More rounded roof....and all the other little things. Other things we will do with this one right away....TV and solar. Can't wait!

RE: Didn't use the camper at all this year.

Best camping is from Labor Day to Thanksgiving day around here.....school cuts the Oregon Coast crowds by 75%!

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....
