That stinks.

I thought their pickup campers were among the absolute best built out there...

That's really too bad as Big Foot was one of the few manufacturers that built a truly rugged all-season RV suitable for use in the boondocks. Hopefully, Northwood (Arctic Fox, Desert Fox & Nash) will survive.

I hope so, too, but they've apparently been shut down, or running on an abbreviated schedule.

The above posts were made to the Northwood Owner's Group Forum during the middle to latter part of October. Don't know what Northwood's current situation is.

Yes, Paul, all of us with Bigfoots now own orphans--our unit, orphaned after 9 years.

Image recent trip to Atlanta, testing out new Torklift Superhith/Supertruss, towing Saturn Vue...worked great!
