Maybe someone in here has owned a Fox MT at least.

I have never heard of that brand.

Looked it up, Northwood is a small new company only since 1985. They do make some other products like Nash and Artic Fox. They are not big in the south with any dealer network.

Northwood Mfg is one of the few RV guys not building in Indianna.

There Arctic Fox is true four seasons trailer. Northwood has a reputation for building a "high quality" trailer; not a trailer at some value Price Point nor do they seem to attempting to build a light weight 1/2 ton towable.

I've been in quite a few Nash and Artic Fox trailers and have been impressed.

I was really wanting to buy an Artic Fox but nobody east of the Mississippi sells their 5th wheel. I wanted it purely because of the Floor plan. On their 30ft 5th wheel, there is no wall between the bathroom and the bedroom which makes for more space and a more open feel in that area.
But we love the Jayco now that we have it.

I/we looked at the Fox Mountains. However they quit making the floor plan we wanted the previous year. We saw it at a show the 305 or 325. I felt the Fox Mountain was a better unit. It is not as glitzy as some of the other brands but felt the construction quality was as good if not better. Not as cheap $ as some of the other lighter weight brands (though it is not as lightweight as the Jayco HT's). Storage was better, it doesn't use a lippert frame, its gvwr was substantially higher allowing much more cargo weight in fact probably way more than you would actually use. It is certainly not a 1/2 ton towable unit but lighter than their Artic Fox line though I am not sure I would tow any of the supposed 1/2 ton towable units with a half ton truck


We ended up with an Eagle HT 27.5 rlts happy with it for the most part as well but have definitely had some issues with it we will see how it holds up over time.


Northwood has a very good reputation for quality at least in their Arctic fox, and Nash lines. The Fox Mountain line has only been out a few years(5 or so iirc) so there is no longevity reviews out there.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking at a Jayco eagle ht 29.5fbds but a little concerned about the pin weight. TV is a 2012 ram 2500 4x4. Im afraid the fifth wheel will not tow level.
