I agree! I have a Nash which is a brother brand to Arctic Fox. I would also add Airstream to the list. Go for quality over bling.

If it's what you want to do then go for it. I trust you've done the math.
You may decide you enjoy it more than you thought and squeeze in extra or longer trips, we did!

I have a Nash which is another Northwood Company product. I would also add Airstream to the list. Even though they were recently purchased by Thor their quality seems to be holding up. Jayco is Thor's latest victim.
Stay away from Keystone as a general rule.

Quality does appear to be related to cost.

What advice do you have for a first time buyer? What have you learned is important or is a waste?
I expect if you find the right TT for your family the days used will creep up. It is much easier to get away when all you have to do is pack some food, the favorite toys and head out.
