  • Big AF Camper

    Hopefully this isn't a repeat of a previous post but I found it to be too cool not to share:

    Thank you for posting that video, did not know they built a proto type of a 3 slide pick up camper. It is huge, saw one years ago at a rv show built by a different camper and figured it would take quite the truck to haul it. It seems like Thunder usually get these proto types units from Northwood. If I was to get a camper that would be the one but I bet the price tag is north of $60K!

      Thanks Adam. Yeah it's just incredible. Unfortunately I don't think they are going to produce it but what a great idea and feat of design and engineering. Probably take a reinforced 4500/F450 dually to haul it. I wonder who ultimately go that one or if it will stay display item. Sure shows off Northwood capabilities.

        Adam, isn't that the big camper Dan and Moneta at Thunder RV brought over to the rally a few years back? They used it for a short time. I saw it on their sales lot--last year I think.

          A have a friend who adapted a Freightliner to haul his AF Camper since they do a lot of boondocking. Had the truck for using on his land and no longer needed it and had the AF Camper. A couple months ago I sent him a link to this video and said his truck would easily handle it. Well, he was in the process of changing it to a SOB three slide camper made in WA. Wanted to stay a Fox Camper but the curved roof killed it, the SOB Camper doesn’t have a flat roof.

            I don't remember that on display at the rally but then again I don't have a perfect memory! I talked to Doug today about it and he said he really wanted to add it and a few other floorplans to the production but they are so busy their just is no time to add new floorplans.

              Adam, it wasn't really on display--Dan and Moneta brought it over and permitted tours while visiting.
