Always liked Artic fox, had two. They are quality campers. We sold our 992 last fall and It was a good camper. On our trip to Arizona we averaged close to 12 miles per gallon and the host cascade is similar. There is not much difference in the weight. Enjoy your new 990.

Tick....tock....tick...tock.... the clock is running for macdale4 to jump in with another obnoxious post stating how bad Arctic Fox campers are because he didn’t like the floor plan of the one he had.

I presently own an AF 811 and have had it for over ten years and it’s been the best RV I’ve ever owned and would buy another in the future. (Just trying to beat the trolls and naysayers before they start whining about Arctic Fox! [emoticon])

BTW emcvay.....congrats on a beautiful new rig and hope you enjoy it immensely.

Thanks guys.

One bit of news is that I've discovered there is NO swaybar on my truck! It isn't too bad as is but I will be getting a new sway bar SOON!

Local guy uses Roadmaster swaybars and I am wondering how they compare to Hellwig Big Wigs?

Had Roadmaster on my last truck and loved it. Built locally in WA state, high quality and massive size. My vote.

Congrats emcvay! Sweet looking setup. Arctic Fox is a quality rig, and that 990 is a great floorplan. Your going to love it the more you use it.
Looking forward to more trip reports. Happy Camping!!

Looking forward to the next trip! This weekend I'm heading about 100 miles away for a milling job which is the main reason we bought this camper. It's heavy so that will be a real test hauling it and pulling the 4000lbs mill plus supplies. I'll do report when I'm back Sunday night.

Meanwhile I am going to order a sway bar as I think that will be the main improvement right now on the road with the next being better shocks.
