RV Purchase????

My Brother and family were considering purchasing a 4 Season Travel Trailer for use on the Northern Peninsula and possibly Labrador. Are there any Trailers available with a reputation for Durability and Reliably considering the Harsh Terrain (Gravel Roads) we will be travelling over?

The one suggestion you will see frequently is Arctic Fox. They are a four season trailer and are insulated for winter use. I believe Lance is also making a four season trailer.

Northwood or Outdoor RV. Both make their own frames. They come with a 3 year frame warranty. Shocks on them also. 4 seasons is what they built their reputation on.
We have a smaller Fox Mountain. It's built like a brick house. The Arctic Fox line is a step up from ours. The AF line has large holding tanks, high CCC ratings and good solid cabinetry. Outdoors RV is a sister company to Northwood and also builds the same type of trailer. There's a few Outdoor RV owners that will chime in I'm sure.

It'll be tough to find one in your area as they concentrate mostly in the western 1/2 of the U.S.

I am currently looking to buy a true 4 season TT. So far my research has turned up the following: I am leaning toward Northwood Arctic Fox or Outdoors RV TimberRidge & Creekside. Also Evergreen's Everlite is well insulated, but maybe a tad below ???? the A/Fox & ORV units. I live in Pa. and have an A/Fox & Everlite dealer about 100 miles away. After I have look, I am planning a trip to visit the Northwood & ORV plants in Washington before making a decision. Perhaps will purchase out there & bring trailer back. Lance trailers are not quite as well insulated, and are a little pricey for what you get.

The best off road well insulated trailers seem to be regional to the north west. In the east in have never seen an Artic Fox dealer just for example. I have noticed dealers in Colorado had better trailers then in Ohio.

There is a person on the forum 'wincrasher' that really likes his 'Oliver' for cold weather. They are rated for 4 season living and have a dual shell design. Find the entry from 'wincrasher' and read his blog.
