Never been to this one. In fact I haven't been to an RV show for many years.
We have been satisfied with our rig. Have found out in the past that looking creates trouble.

It's not going to be a huge show. They said 50 units, and I think 4 or 5 dealers.

I do know Jayco, Cross Roads, who ever makes outback. The rest I don't know.

Sorry I should have said there's no dealer that stocks any inventory. One 5th model only!

As Lloyd stated earlier, going to a RV show can cause trouble. Went to the Denver show first week of January and was struck with the thought that I could replace my 27' Cougar travel trailer with a comparably sized 5er and would ultimately be towing shorter than the Cougar as there's 3-4 feet of length over the truck bed. Duh! I purchased a 36' 5er last September and was really impressed with the way it tows solidly and hitches/unhitches much easier/quicker than my previous Sunset Trail 30BH travel trailer. Plus I already have the hitch. I'm sold on 5ers! Anyway, looked at a Fox Mountain 27' 5er made by the same company as Arctic Fox (Northwood Mfg.) with a lot of neat features I haven't seen on other brands. Yes, it's pricier than other brands but not as expensive as Artic Fox. Might be an option for you?

Lucky me the Elko Mn Dealership has a store in Mounds View and a Artic Fox 27-5L that is sold, he would pull it inside for us too check out that,s really COOL.

One of them also has a 2015 Arctic Fox 32-5M
You might have to get more truck for this one tho.

We took in the show this afternoon and I'm happy to say---there wasn't anything there that really caught my fancy.
All I could see was more work fixing up something new just to get it to where I now feel that I have ours.

It's really sad to talk with some of those sales people. They don't know squat about the product. They will tell the customer anything that it takes to make the sale.
