After years of wishing, research and planning, I bought a truck and truck camper! I just picked up the camper yesterday!
I'm now the happy and excited owner of a new 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 dually, and a 2007 Arctic Fox 990. Driving back home from Ohio to PA with the new camper, the truck rode great. I can't wait to pack up and head out on a long road trip in it!

Pam and Mike from Mike Jones Motors RV in Ohio were both great to work with to answer all my questions, help me through the buying process, and get me on the road.

Humorously, before picking up the camper, I went to the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati. I parked the truck and toured the museum. When I was walking back out to the truck, I realized I was parked right in front of the perfect mural painted on the wall...Building a Better Future...NexGen Building Supply....with a guy hauling a sheet of plywood right out of my bed. haha.

A Hearty Congrats, BTW, be sure to triple check all your caulking, especially roof joints, clearance and tail lights -you’ll then stay a happy camper !!

COngrats, you are going to love it! I just returned from a 5 week trip out west in my AF 1150, and it was great. I didn't have one single issue with the camper, and I went a lot of places that a motorhome would never go. And of course a lot of places that a motorhome would go. Good luck and safe travels!

Thanks for the reminder. It's supposed to warm up some this weekend, and I was planning on checking all my seals.
The camper's in pretty great condition overall, but it is 11 years old and needs some TLC.

Theses lights are probably the best ones to replace the OEM incandescent lights that get water in the lens, then leak down in the walls if the lenses fill up with water. Or I should say WHEN the lenses fill up with water.
