RE: Just looking for honest info

I'd be willing to pull a NH with my last F450 (2017) as long as the pin weight doesn't get crazy. 24,000 lbs is OK but something hovering 5000 lb pin weight pushes the truck's GVWR. I think just about any NH toyhauler is pushing 28-30K. Pin weight? Good question.

RE: Just looking for honest info

if new horizons build there own frames in house where the others use spec'd out lci horizons would be my first choice if they would build the toyhauler to your spec. the frame is the foundation for any build and a stronger frame is always heavier. Good advice. LCI produces junk no matter what the manufacturer "specs out". Dont believe anyone when they say LCI makes something better for manufacturer X because they spec it so. Thats BS. They use the cheapest steel obtainable, the welds look like they're done by Kindergarten kids, and the powder coating is worthless. I'd gladly pay more for something not associated with LCI. LCI's dominance as a supplier is a lot of what is wrong with the RV industry. The catch with the NH is weight. I'd need something bigger than my F450 if we go that route and that's not something I'm orepared for at this point in time.

RE: Just looking for honest info

Yes, we noticed a crazy price increase as well. We're on our second Arctic Gox so I called Northwood and asked if they would build a one-off for us. That was a hearty No Go. I've looked at the frame and sidewall build of both a NH and Luxe. For Luxe to say they're equal to a NH is quite simply a slap in my face. At this point all we can hope for is that prices will come down over the next two years...hopefully.

Just looking for honest info

Comparing DRV Fullhouse, Vanleigh Ambition and Luxe. Noticed that the Luxe price point is substantially higher than the other two. In fact, approaching the cost of a custom New Horizon or Spacecraft. So I called Luxe and spoke to a very pleasant salesperson and flat out asked what makes your RV so special that it's priced comparable to a New Horizon? The salesperson said IT IS as well built as the New Horizon. I asked for, and received, pictures of a toyhauler build in progress. Guess what? The frame is manufactured by Lippert, as most are. There are very few manufacturers that design and build their own frames in house. The New Horizon frame is what makes the dang thing so heavy; 30K lbs for the 45' model. So I ask,has anyone completed a deep dive into the differences among these three toyhaulers?

RE: The Complete List of Toy Haulers

I would add SpaceCraft MFG to the list as well.
