Outdoors RV Mfg. "SIGHTINGS"

As I have noted on prior posts, we are currently traveling and yesterday while going east on the I-10 we came upon a beautiful, brand new Blackstone. After passing him twice (we stopped for gas) he ended up pulling into a Texas RV park right behind us!! So much for going 2-3 miles an hour faster than the person in front of you! So Ron (from Florida) and I had a good visit about OutdoorsRV Mfg, traveling, etc.

So far on this trip (since Jan 6) we have only seen two other OutdoorsRV trailers; Ron and his new Blackstone yesterday, a parked Blackstone at San Clemente State Beach (California) in late Feb, and a TimberRidge going west on the I-10 between Lordsburg (NM) and Benson (AZ) on Mar 17. These encounters caused me to recall that another forum (a manufacturer specific forum) has a fairly active thread called “Sightings”.

So I have called this new thread “Sightings” and others can contribute as they wish. It might be interesting to see how Outdoors RV rigs get distributed around this great Nation of ours. Outdoors RV Mfg is advertising they have produced more than 10,000 units so they should show up every once in awhile, especially now that Spring is here.

The nice thing about these forums/threads is that they will automatically die if they are not used!

Bob

I will keep an eye out here in Colorado. Our temperatures have been great lately, and I have seen lots of trailers being towed around the past week.

If I see an ORV, I'll try and grab a photo for the thread:-)

Bob,Bob,Bob...there is more than one great nation where Outdoor RV sells "rigs" ..its a little patch of ground to the north of you called CANADA.👌👍 where health care is free if you pay taxes, the U.S. neighbors get a $1.25 to $1.30 dollar...and we have the longest undefended border.
Bob you've been in the southern states too long as it seems you are forgetting about your northern neighbors.
....and you want me to bring the single malt to Wallowa....😉💬🍻

Coops...your northern neighbour from the other great nation.👌👍
Apology accepted...I will blame it on the sun and your maturity.

Coops, Kayakcrazy and all my other (former?) Canadian friends,

Wow, that is one of my biggest screw ups ever!! I am so sorry!! But after recently spending several days in Arizona (USA) winter RV resorts, I thought Canada had annexed the USA.

Love all Canucks!

Bob

Well Coops, I guess Bob has been in the sun too long. You know how that affects your thinking. The winters in the Southwest can turn your skin red like a lobster. I believe that I did hear that a good 50% of ORV and Northwoods products go north to be frozen.

Since no one is posting to my awesome new thread, I thought I would, again. On March 4-5, we saw a Blackrock (I have no clue what model) at the Indian Waters RV Resort in Indio, CA. A nice, very clean unit.

Bob....went down to Jubillee RV in Kamloops...to pickup some parts. Their the largest Outdoors RV dealer in Canada...you name the ORV product they got it...all prices in Canadian dollars....the same Windriver 250 RDSW model we bought in August of 2013 is much more expanse now.
ORV product is quite popular in this neck of the woods.
Will post as we see um.

That's where we bought our Timber Ridge in Fall 2013. Glad we did it back then, with the exchange rate, I imagine they definitely would be more expensive now.

Don't think we've seen one out East. A few Oregon cousins (Nash, Artic Fox) but not ORV yet.

We have a 2015 Creekside 26rls. This is our first TT and we love it. After having bought it we also noticed that we do not see many others like it on the road. When we do see an Outdoor RV product it is always a Wind River. Yet to spot another Creekside. Don't know why it is a good product and I would recommend it. As for now all of these sightings have been in Oregon.

Remember it costs $1+ a mile to get a TT to the selling dealer. I was told that about 50% of their TT's go north. These are TT's made for weather not seen much in the south. There is a big market for toyhaulers in the south deserts. My only dealer is 45+ min from home and if not for him it would be a long way to a dealer. Northwood and OutdoorsRV do not even come to the big RVIA show in So Cal. They are quality built TT's only built in one plant each in Oregon and they are built for that weather.

Well its not quite camping season here in Alaska. Probably another good 4-5 weeks away for most people. I do you there is another Creekside in my neighborhood. I'm guessing its either a 2012, 2013.

Once we hit the road ourselves I will try to make it a point to check in.

Interesting. We have about 6 months of traveling in our WR since we purchased it in Jan 2014 and have never seen another WR on the road!
