GRAND DESIGN MOMENTUM 376TH WINS ANOTHER AWARD

 

 GRAND DESIGN MOMENTUM 376TH WINS ANOTHER AWARD

IS IT A CONVENTIONAL 5th WHEEL WITH A HUGE STORAGE COMPARTMENT?  OR …
IS IT A TOY HAULER WITH A FANTASTIC FLOORPLAN?

Grand Design has done it again — They came up with a truly ingenius 5th wheel design that

seems to perform magic.  The Momentum 376TH is a luxury extended-stay, front living room 5th

wheel with a a rear Queen bedroom …. PLUS a garage and an outdoor kitchen tucked away in

the basement.  Seems impossible!  You just have to see it!  VISIT OUR WEBSITE FOR LOTS OF PICTURES.

The following item appeared in Greg Gerber’s Jan. 25, 2016 online issue of the RV Daily

Report.

   Grand Design Wins “Best of Show” Honor

The Momentum 376TH garage provides a storage space that allows the vehicle to have all of

the living quarters and interior appeal of a luxury fifth wheel while still having versatile

space for a motorcycle, golf cart, or room for extra storage.

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. — Grand Design Recreational Vehicle Company continues to turn heads as the

new Momentum 376TH was selected by RV Pro as “best of show,” the company announced today.

RV Pro’s write-up on the Momentum hits on how Grand Design listened to customer feedback and

created a class of toy hauler that previously did not exist, the release noted.

The Momentum 376TH garage provides a storage space that allows the vehicle to have all of

the living quarters and interior appeal of a luxury fifth wheel while still having versatile

space for a motorcycle, golf cart, or room for extra storage that might be desired by

full-time RVers.

The RV Pro Best of Show Award is added to the growing list of recent awards received by

Grand Design including the the RV Dealers Association’s DSI Award, the Trailer Life Gold

Readers’ Choice Award, and the RV Business 2016 Top RV Debut.

   RV Pro Magazine’s article about “BEST OF SHOW” Award

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Welcome to RV PRO’s sixth annual “Best of Show” coverage, highlighting

standout motorhomes, fifth wheels and travel trailers on display at the 53rd annual National

RV Trade Show.

 

Grand Design Momentum 376TH

There are a multitude of variations on toy haulers. Basic trailers with few amenities.

Luxury trailers with garages in back. Travel trailers with a deck on the front to load toys.

But with the newest Momentum floorplan, Grand Design hit on a concept that meets some of the

needs that conventional toy haulers haven’t solved yet.

Momentum’s garage is, in essence, a basement that allows the vehicle to have all of the

living quarters and space of a regular fifth wheel while still having space for a motorcycle

or golf cart or just plain room for extra storage that might be desired by full-time RVers.

The 9-foot-long, 54-inch-wide garage area is fully enclosed and separate from the living

quarters.

And despite the garage space, there’s still room for a full-sized bedroom in the space above

the garage. The bedroom features dual closets and nightstands on either side of the queen

bed.

Five slides provide ample interior space for a large kitchen and pass-through bathroom as

well as a large front living room with 50-inch television. The living area includes theater

seating with 80-inch tri-fold sofa beds on both sides of the room.

External features include an outdoor kitchen and entertainment center as well as a second

pass-through storage center.

“I’ve been trying to build a front lounge toy hauler for a number of years, but you always

end up compromising something in order to get the layout you want,” says General Manager

Nate Golden- berg. “These units are pushing 100 grand and the people end up sleeping in the

garage. With this, we were able to build a true front lounge with no compromises. I’m really

anxious to see what kind of customer this attracts. It is really customer friendly. Even

some full-timers might not use the garage for a motorcycle or a golf cart, but they still

have a lot of possessions they want to put in there.”

Momentum 376TH checks in at 15,900 pounds and 41-feet, 3-inches long with fresh water

capacity of 117 gallons. The triple- axle vehicle has a gross vehicle weight rating of

19,500 pounds. MSRP is around $98,000.

What Impressed RV PRO:
Although the garage probably isn’t big enough to handle a Polaris RZR, it will handle a

full-sized motorcycle or golf cart. Having the external, enclosed space makes for a full RV.

It also keeps mud and fumes that might be associated with the toys outside of the living

compartmen

“We are thrilled to be the recipient of Trailer Life’s Readers’ Choice Award. This award is humbling because it is voted by RV owners and enthusiasts from all walks of life.

INTEREST RATE INCREASE NEXT MONTH A NEAR CERTAINTY

CHICAGO TRIBUNE SAYS INTEREST RATE HIKE COMING IN DECEMBER

Today’s Chicago Tribune reports that a Federal Reserve increase in the interest rate next month is a “near certainty”.  It would be the first interest rate increase in nearly a decade.  The Fed cut the short-term interest rate that it controls to near zero in 2008 to try to stimulate growth during the recession.  Now, with unemployment down to 5%, the Fed is expected to increase rate at their next meeting Dec. 15-16.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR RV LOANS?

Interest rates for RV loans have been at record low levels for so long that it almost seems like the new normal.  But we will probably begin to see a return to the much higher pre-recession rates for auto and RV loans.  It may happen gradually or it may happen more quickly!  This could  be the last chance to lock in the current low rates.

RIGHT NOW IS THE SMART TIME TO BUY NEW OR PRE-OWNED RV

If you are a potential  first-time RV buyer, now is the time to do it!  If you still have an RV with a long term loan at the high pre-recession interest rates, now is the time to trade it in and lock in the current low rates.  You may find that you can have a new RV at a monthly payment that is as low as, or even lower than, the payment on your old one.  The window of opportunity is closing.
