  • AF 5th wheels - full time warranty??

    We have been full time for 6 years in SOB and are considering replacing our current 5th wheel with an AF. 7 years ago when we were first shopping for a full time RV we were told some manufacturers / models were not meant to be for full time use and if you did full time in the rig your warranty would be invalid. I've done a lot of searching on the NW website but can't really find any info on this topic.
    Any warranty issues if you full time in an AF? Either with the original manufacturer's warranty or an extended warranty?

    Many Arctic Fox owners 'full-time' in their trailers. AF 4-season units make wonderful homes.

    Don't know about other manufacturers, but Northwood will cover your Arctic Fox warranty if 'full-timing'. The NW bumper-to-bumper warranty period is one year.

    Northwood is known for their quick hassle free warranty repairs. In fact, many owners live / stay far away from a Northwood dealer and Northwood has covered warranty claims, when repaired at other repair facilities.

    Any extended warranty would be through a non-Northwood company.

      Thanks for the quick response!

      Understand on the extended warranty being through another company, we've had that with our current rig.

        X-2 What Dave said. When our 27-5L was still under the one year warranty NW authorized three different repairs locally which saved us towing the trailer 75 miles one way to NW dealer.
