Older Arctic fox or Fox Mountain?
Hi Folks, I’m new here. I come from the world of vintage Airstreams but now I find that we’d like to start camping in places that are a bit rough for a polished aluminum trailer.
So, we’ve decided that a Northwood product should fit the bill. Based on our budget, we are looking at a 2007 AF27-5b and a 2011 FM 275bhs (we’d like rear bunks for the kids and those seem to be our only options).
On paper, these two trailers are similar. Insulation value, thermo windows, similar weights and size (FM is actually a bit heavier and larger) and asking price. We do like some of the design cues in the FM along with bedroom door for the BH, and the power awning. That said, the AF has the couch directly across from the dinette which makes a lot of sense to us when having friends in. I’m also wondering if the interior quality in the AF is superior, things like seating cushion density and drawer mechanisms, etc.
So I guess my question is: is there a right or wrong move here? FM has a fibreglass front cap, the AF has the Filon cap. But, I understand there have been problems with both? Thoughts, opinions?
Thanks in advance!
