Well, except that the OP is asking about a 2016 model... so many of those posts will be about older units. Others will be utterly irrelevant to his question.

Anyway if anyone has any comments about this unit or Artic Foxes in general I'd like to hear them.

Try looking at a Lance. The solar on the roof is prewired, there is also a "portable solar hookup on the side. Solidly built, 2 year warranty (made in Lancaster, CA) There are 2016 models available for sale on the Lance Owners of America Forum.

It even has a Folbot strapped to the side,


What the heck is a Falbot?

Arctic Fox has some very well built frames, built in house, unlike the Lippert junk that nearly all other manufacturers outsource their frames to.

Wow.. 10 pages of AF in search.
Give it a rest already. Maybe go wax your rig or something.

Or post something of even less significance like "better check the tongue weight and payload capacity of your truck on a CAT scale before buying a heavy AF trailer."

Too late, I completed the purchase Friday. PDI is Wednesday.

I've been immersed in the details of solar panels, batteries and MPPT and PDC

Isn't Lance a Truck Camper? Or maybe they make TT too.

If they do not bugger things up in the next ten years, our retirement unit will likely be either a Northwood Mfg. or Outdoors RV product.
