Artic Silver Fox New Owner in The House ( Forest Gump )

Picking up our Silver Artic Fox today. Canít wait to get to know you guys and gals. My husband is newly retired (sold our coffee shop) and I work for a large co but remotely. Any great tips for that or the trailer we would love!

Decided a few months back we want to travel more while we are able (in our late 50ís). See more of our beautiful country and meet some crazy peeps like ourselves. We will be traveling with our fur babies ( dog and 2 cats) yeh I know I told you we were crazy. But wouldnít be able to enjoy the time without them. Big adventures await.

We had a class A but weíre so busy we sold it a few years back but loved it so much decided we have to get back out in the road.

Thanks for reading and having us on the site. Happy Trails and Tails.

Jacinda & Raven

Nice to have you here with us. Browse the forums and ask questions. BTW there are a lot of non-crazy people that travel with their fur babies. We even have a forum for them.

Always good to have another Arctic Fox owner in the group!

Don't forget to post what model you've decided on.

I've made some mods to mine, that have made life ( and towing) a little easier.

Nice pix!
3 things/changes that have made towing smoother for me.

1. Good Year Endurance "E" range tires
2. Morryde CRE3000 suspension upgrade
3. Lippert straptek weight tension kit It looks like you have an Equa-i-zer hitch, so I'm not sure the straptek will work with that set up. I have a Blue Ox brand hitch on mine.

Safe Journeys and enjoy the new rig!

We have G rated tires that are almost new but will look into those E. We are going to look into the sway system for this hitch. The guy we bought it from he included practically everything as he was going to a new Montana 5th wheel. Thank you for all the suggestions . But we totally love the rig. Perfect condition and it still smells new which kinda freaked us out . Raven & Jacinda

Yeh, 2 weeks in still smells new looked all over for those hanging things or a spray, nada. I just think this guy meticulously took care of this rig, no pets and children probably helped. He took it hunting in CO and NM. Our GSD loves it lays right under the TV and snores .

Heading to St George Island end of March first big trip. So excited
