We ordered ours in late January and picked it up mid-April. We have about 1500 miles on it, 3 trips, about 17 nights, temps ranging from 30 to 96 and a *lot* of rain. We researched for almost 3 years before deciding on AF and the 32A. We're absolutely delighted with it and, other than a few nits we found that the dealer fixed, we've had a total of 3 issues with it (staple in overhead door track, had to adjust awning to roll properly, and a screw that had to be re-positioned in a light fixture). That's it. Features and workmanship exceeded our already high expectations.

We believe part of the painlessness of our experience is having chosen a great dealer. We drove 1000 miles from Dallas to Minneapolis to buy from Niemeyer Trailers. They've got a golden rep and they were great to deal with. Their prep was extensive and probably accounts for our not having any significant problems. I also had them install things like power management systems and a second air conditioner which they did flawlessly.

Our short list of manufacturers was Northwood, Grand Design, Outdoors and (early on, before we decided we wanted a more rugged trailer) Lance.

Good luck on whatever you end up with. If it's the 32A you're going to love it--the open living space and the storage are outstanding.

Arctic Fox 32a

Thanks for that great review!!
What kind of power management system did you have put on it?
Do you have a utility box or anything on the bumper?

We put in the hardwired Progressive 50A unit. Nothing exciting has happened yet but it's nice to know it's there. We put the display panel in the cubby over the fireplace--turns out I'd rather have it over by the door so it's visible from outside if we need to troubleshoot something so I'm going to move it.

Nothing on the bumper. The newest units have a better bumper--the one on ours is very short and is too short for a double sewer hose. The new one looks longer and the spare has been moved from underneath to the bumper.
