Yeah, the interior layout looks awesome. Knowing how the tanks are positioned on a similar size AF, I'd say the batteries and hot water location just offset the gray and black tanks. Tanks now in front and batteries and hot water in back. If anything, gray/black tanks near the front, if that's the case, would put more weight forward of the axle when they're full, then 2 batteries do. Bottom line it's a TC, it's heavy, go have fun!
Where's the propane bottles hiding though? I looked at a couple other pics and don't see a propane compartment on either side.
Only drawback, IMO is it has a smaller fresh water tank than comparable AF units. Packing as much fresh water as possible is a priority for me for camping without hookups.


Well, that's the thing. It's no AF. WC's are way off from AFs capacities.

BTW, who drives any long distance with their dump tanks full? I alwaYs run empty. Makes no sense to lug all that disposable weight around.

We always leave home with the 50 gal fresh H20 full. It’s got to go somewhere! Not unusual it stays with us until we get home. It’s usually all grey and black by that time.

Yes I agree, I usually just wait until I get home to dump everything if we are close. #1 I don’t feel like it and I have a cleanout at my house to dump. #2 the insane fees to dump, its not uncommon for campgrounds now to charge outrageous fees to dump a relatively small holding tank (20 gallons) for the full price of a huge 30+ fifth wheel with 75+ . Holding tanks!! I always scratch my head thinking why am I paying the same price as a huge fifth wheel that has at least double if not triple the waste?

Gray and black tanks are about the same as AF I think?

Running with stuff in any of the tanks is really situational for me. I don't intentionally shed water, fresh or otherwise for weight reasons.

Either way, they're sharp lookin campers, them Fox Creeks!

Yep, for me too.


I think they look cool, but, personally, being a purveyor of less than new campers, the more stickers, the less easily sustainable the exterior finish becomes.

Just part of the game though I suppose.


I checked the inside online and it looks like a really nice TC.

The graphics on the vast majority of all new RVs has gone way overboard on being unappealing to me.

Me. I dump when I get home. I avoid campgrounds like a plague.

Well when I ordered mine I asked that all the graphics be left off except the WC logo. Since my truck is all white it might go better? That's the hope anyway. It should be delivered any day now.

Congrats on you new camper. I would have done the same thing.

I'm not much for stickers or graphics on anything.
3 days after buying a new ATV they were gone. [emoticon]

Same thing with the stupid 4x4 sticker on my truck. [emoticon]

Yeah those graphics are over the top especially the Huge wolf head, but it definitely is unique!! Reminds me of some kind of space ship lol.


Thanks, man. Really digging the layout. Wife loves it, too.

Who knows. Might find our way into one in the next couple years.
