We identify a fairly general class of field configurations (of spins and 1) which preserve Lorentz invariance in effective field theories of Lorentz violation characterized by a constant timelike vector. These fields concomitantly satisfy the equations of motion yielding cubic dispersion relations similar to those found earlier. They appear to have prospective applications in inflationary scenarios.
