Opportunities …

A planned trip to Kalispell just didn’t work out … but there was another opportunity in Spokane WA for  those into the travelling life.  An RV show, that is.  It’s our nature to look and investigate – especially for new things that may apply to our own units.  Well, as at many RV shows, behemoths dominate the display.  We visited the truck campers, and here’s what we saw:

First, the Arctic Fox models … check the new “Fox Landing.”

This is a simple yet amazing stair ...

They’ve got an interesting kitchen layout.

Narrow, but usable space behind the sink ...

And slide-outs!  Everybody is into slide-outs these days.

Nice.
Nice.

Speaking of behemoths … Lance brought theirs.  This view is from behind (it’s got a side entrance), and has slide-outs on the side and the rear.

So ... the ladder is on the side.

This is the rear slide-out ... lots of room.

Note the new hatch above the bed ... with a little curtain.

The pic above is a regular size Lance … and it has a comfortable feel to it.

Next we saw the behemoth (have I used that word too many times?) from Eagle Cap.  The floor on this unit is also above the bed-rails of the truck.

Note the service access to the tanks from the front.

This one has a center island. Very nice.

And here’s a view of a “regular” size interior …

Round table - nice touch.

Then the Northern Lites from Kelowna (up North).  These units are seamless fiberglass tubs, insulated for the Canadian winters.  Heated basement, but without slide-outs.

Gotta love these ... leak-proof and insulted for the winter
Gotta love these … fit and finish is superb!

We got a chance to check all the features before … click here to check ’em out.

Interiors are a cut above.

Then we got to see the Adventurer from ALP … with a new electronic rear awning that is the easiest I’ve seen.  Big windows, with dark tint too.

Lots of light in the kitchen ...

Airy and light colors ... adds to the spacious feel.

Well, this is not the same as camping in some glorious site … but checking out new equipment always has a cachet of its own.

  1. Great pics! I’m glad to see so many TC’s at the show since usually it’s the opposite. That Eagle Cap is a MONSTER!! It was my first time in the Northern Lite and they sure are nice. Still love the Lance 825 but we’re leaning towards the Adventurer 86FB for our next TC. Cheers!! ~M
