A triple slide out so heavy it needs something like a F450 pickup to carry it !

Looks a lot like an Eagle Cap 1165

I guess you save a lot on design when you just straight up copy the competition.

Interesting wording on the sticker: with water, but with standard options. I wonder how much it will really weigh optioned out?

As far as F450 goes, did you mean chassis F450 or pickup model. [emoticon]

That might be a bit harsh... let's be honest; how many configurations do you really think are possible in a 6x8 space? Seems to me they pretty much all look the same...with small differences.


'07 F550 with Link Ultraride air under an '11 AF 1150. It's either a fishing boat, snowmobiles or dual sports; something is always being towed.

Switching over to a 2016 F550 with new Ultraride air...just need to get the flatbed built.

That’s one nice big fancy camper that you can’t get into and go to the bathroom without running 2 slides out.

This guy makes it sound like he found Noah's ark.

Hey fella', a couple other companies have already been building triple slideout TCs.

"This must weigh a ton." No probably close to 3 tons when loaded to travel.

Well, he lives full time in his Arctic Fox with a single slide. So comparatively this things a mansion.

Looks exactly like the plans for the Eagle Cap 1165 as someone posted earlier in this thread. The Arctic Fox 992 was also a direct rip off of the Eagle Cap 995. Arctic Fox is built the old delaminating way, that is filon backed with luan which will delaminate due to condensation on the aluminum framing during cold weather or if you have any kind of water leak.
There are other campers built with Adzel and no luan, I shy away from Arctic Fox due to their old school build methods.

What would the truck cost to haul this camper? The camper itself must be over $50k new. If space is important wouldn't a 24ft Class C with a full wall slide have more room, storage and be a lot less costly?
