Humvee with Arctic Fox Camper
AMC 4×4 Humvee with a chassis mount Arctic Fox cab-over camper with side slide out.
The Arctic Fox camper is manufactured by Northwood Manufacturing located in La Grande, Oregon. The frame is constructed with welded aluminum. Aluminum is lighter than steel and more durable than wood. The siding is a one piece laminated fiberglass. The roof has a 3″ crown to improve load bearing. This is a “Full Walk On Roof” The slide out is a nice feature that provides more interior space. It also has an extended cab over for roomy sleep area. The slide out is a dinette that can convert to a sleeping area. Here are some specs on this one:
- Interior Height: 6’7″
- Floor Length: 11’4″
- Overall Length: 19′
- Fresh Water Capacity: 59 gallons
- Sleeping Capacity: 4
This vehicle can go just about anywhere in the most rugged of terrains. You could literately create your own road and destination,
The first vehicle in the Hummer range was the Hummer H1, based on the Humvee. The original Hummers were first designed by AM General Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Motors Corporation (AMC), and built in its Mishawaka, Indiana, assembly plant. In 1979, the United States Army was seeking contractors for a new “High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle” which could follow the tracks and ruts of full size army trucks. AMC was the first to deliver a prototype vehicle.
Would like fit that exact article fox on my 3/4 ton 6 ft 6 in pick up 4dr 2wd I will take the bed off might have to make a metal 8 ft frame to fit that on my truck can you help me.
My experience with slides on 3 different brands have not been good. My guess, is that you’ll be scrapping this set up and going custom in a year, as the racking side to side, the off-road twisting, will not be friendly to the longevity of this camper. I’d check the new Dynamo TCX for their lightweight aircraft aluminum hard side. Interesting new builds.
