I just saw some 865's on the Truck Camper Warehouse site. They appear to be non slides. The AF site does not mention them in their site. Is this new for 2015? Does anyone have info on this?

Had spoken to a salesmen there last year and they were coming out with a few new models this year. There should be a side door model on its way as well. Think the 865 will be replacing the 811? And they just haven't updated there site yet waiting to see the reaction on the new models. When the next major RV show??? They may show them there??

The Artic Fox 865 is not a new model for 2015. Northwood has been producing them for several years now (since 2009) but you wont find them on their website. Once a year Northwood changes their production line over to make a limited number of these units and there are only two dealers that I know of (Apache Camper in Everett, WA and Truck Camper Warehouse in New Hampshire) that gets to sell the AF865. It is the only non slide truck camper that Northwood makes and it is a beautiful well constructed camper. It has a huge mid bath to go along with a great dinette surrounded by windows which makes it feel light and roomy inside. It carries 60lbs of propane and twin batteries onboard. It sells for around $32,000.00 and has to be loaded on either a one ton SRW or DRW. I would love to have one of those but I know that I never will.

I have a 2009 AF865. I noticed that it’s a lot heavier then the new 2017 model, which weighs 2,641 wet/no options. My 2009 AF865 weighs 3,636 wet/no options. I’m just curious where they trimmed 995lbs. off the newer models.
