I can't thank everyone enough for the replies that you have taken the time to post on this thread. I also couldn't ask for better compliments than you have given our company and the guys.

Thanks again and again and again...................................................

Customer service from everyone at ATC, none of my questions went unanswered and response was quick. Weight was a big factor to me over all the manufactures, my camper stays on the truck always, ATC and FWC are about the same so the field was narrowed down to those two. The bed size was also a biggie for me, exact same size as my bedroll with out any monkeying around with pull outs and brackets, just pop the top and get in bed. Materials seemed better with the ATC, no particle board and there was no corner cutting on the fixtures either. Today I did 70 miles on desert roads in the mojave, most of it was washboard and washed out in some places too, I felt after looking at both company's the All terrain camper was hands down the better choice for this kind of use.

As an FWC owner I've got warn readers that not all the differences being state here are necessarily correct. Check them out for yourself. Aside from Ben and Marty's excellent participation in this forum and willingness share their experience there are not huge differences in the campers. I might have given ATC a look 15 months ago if I'd had the opportunity.

DLN,

What differences do you see that are not correct??

I have been through all the posts and the only problem one that I see is the last one that seems to infer that there might be particle board in an FWC.

To the best of my knowledge, FWC does not use any particle board or cut any corners in building their campers. They still make a great product and I am sure they will continue to long into the future.

I have pointed out to many people the differences in our campers. The basic build is pretty much the same. FWC offers a lot more options than we do and they have that neat couch that everyone likes. They have upgraded the cabinets in the camper to nicer fronts with doors on them also. Overall I think they have a better looking camper.

In the past the customer who was looking for this type of camper really only had one choice. Now you have two but if someone is claiming something about ours that is not correct, I would like to correct the problem now and not mislead anyone as to the differences in our campers.

Ben,

My post had nothing at all to do with anything you or Marty have said about the camper differences. In fact, I find your willingness to be honest, straight forward, and even complimentary to FWC very refreshing and shows an integrity that is a bit uncommon it today's business world. My reference was mainly aimed at the "particle board, cutting corners, and better materials" reference. I felt it would be unfair to FWC for the reader to take that statement as a fact but was trying not to offend the writer by being too specific. As I stated I likely would have had to make a tough decision between the two brands if I was buying today. Nothing but respect, Ben.
