    Thumbs up The latest from Northwood

    Ok its been a while since I have gotten anything from the factory. So here's the latest update from Lance.

    We have been busy-busy and I have some great new product info on the website to let you know about. Check out the following new floorplans:
    Arctic Fox 28F
    Snow River 234RBS
    Snow River 288BHS

    Also take a look at the newest Quick Tours for the Nash 22H and the Arctic Fox 22G.

    Finally, on the Nash page, make sure to check out the new Safari Tuff Rear Rack option - it's pretty cool.

    Have a great day,
    Lance

    As someone who owns... and really likes... the AF 25R, the floor plan of the new 28F looks intriguing.

    I wonder how easy the bathroom is to access while on the road if you don't bump a slide out some?

    I noticed last night they have a bunch of issues with the floorplans not showing on their site right now?

    That's a very important question.

    I'd need to see what the interior is like... is it completely livable and usable... with both slides in.

    Usability with the slide "in" is what I call the Twiggy Test.
    Twiggy was a model who some considered emaciated many years ago. (I just did a Google and see that it was the "mid sixties.")
    The Test relates to needing to be as thin as Twiggy to navigate inside the rig with the slide in.
    I am not like Twiggy, this is an important test to me.

    If you only use the RV at your destination, then it isn't likely a problem.
    We like to stop and use the bathroom or have lunch where putting out a slide (however slight) may not be good.

    Since the underside of our slide doesn't have an airtight seal when opened (just rubber flaps), we sometimes close it during inclement weather such as extreme cold, heavy snow, and dust storms. Beside the lunch/bathroom stops, these are additional reasons why we'll always demand a fully functional RV when the slide(s) closed.

    On first inspection the floor plan looked promising to me (forgetting that we just picked up our new SOB a week ago.). It would be even more interesting to us if one can replace the sofa with two recliners. And I imagine this could easily be done,

    One of our key requirements for our 25R replacement was access from one end to the other when the slides are not extended. In addition to roadside travel stops, we regularly stay in front of family and friends' homes in town and can't block the road with a slide.

    Scaling from the very small floor plan, I'm not sure Twiggy could get past the island on either side. A tour of the built rig would be essential for us before making a final judgement.

    Getting happier with the SOB as we find places to put our flotsam and jetsam.

    We don't have any issues with our 25r getting around when the slide is in. Can even use the couch. We have eaten lunch on the dinette with it in and could open all the drawers etc. Getting to and into the bath isn't an issue either, but when the slide is out, it is really nice with the extra room.
