 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.

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

GRAND DESIGN WINS TRAILER LIFE READER’S CHOICE GOLD AWARD

Grand Design AwardGRAND DESIGN 5TH WHEELS WIN 2015 READERS CHOICE GOLD AWARD

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. — Grand Design RV Company was awarded the Gold Readers’ Choice Award from Trailer Life for fifth wheel products.

“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. There are a lot of strong fifth wheel brands in our business. It is especially humbling for Grand Design to be recognized among all RV companies as the only fifth wheel manufacturer to be the exclusive Gold award winner in the fifth wheel category of the coveted Trailer Life Readers’ choice award,” stated Don Clark, CEO and co-owner of Grand Design RV.

“From the inception of Grand Design RV Company, we have tried to be a different kind of company; A company that is focused on building RVs with the highest quality, most features, finest designs and unparalleled customer support. We focus on what our customers desire instead of simply joining the ‘sea of sameness.’ Along with innovative products that appeal to our customers, we literally spend millions of dollars in quality processes that are unique to our industry. It is great for our Grand Design team members throughout our company to see that their efforts are recognized. Thank you to the best dealers in the business and our growing group of loyal Grand Design customers for helping us achieve this award,” Clark added.

CAMP-LAND RV SUMMER NEWSLETTER

CAMP LAND RV NEWSLETTER

JUNE 2014

AN OCCASIONAL LETTER TO LET OUR CUSTOMERS KNOW ABOUT CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS

We are in the midst of our month-long 53rd  Anniversary Sell-A Bration and want to invite you to come visit us.  We are proud to have been in this exciting business for 53 years —  now with 2nd  generation management.

There are a lot of great things going on right now in the RV world.  New products.  New features.  Fresh new floorplans.  Ways to make campers lighter weight.

# 1 SELLING JAYFLIGHT TRAVEL TRAILERS are now available with optional fiberglass exterior.  Jayflight has for years been the country’s most popular aluminum-skin line of travel trailers because of their practical floor plans and quality interiors and cabinetry.  Now you can get the same Jayflight with optional fiberglass in place of the aluminum skin.  Fiberglass looks sharp, is easier to keep clean and is hail resistant.  Hail resistance is especially desirable here in the Midwest where hail storms are common.

LIGHTWEIGHT TRAVEL TRAILERS – Expandable hybrid  travel trailers have been very popular for several years as one answer to the need for more room in a lightweight, easy-to-tow camper.  Jayco has been dominant in expandables and has come out with several new floorplans and lighter weight models.  We have a huge selection in stock, ready to go for your next camping trip.

Travel trailers with laminated fiberglass construction are lighter than conventional wood construction.  They have walls with an aluminum framework instead of wood.  The walls are a sandwich of fiberglass outer skin, a thin plywood underlayment, thick foam insulation center and the inner paneling.  Lighter weight and resistant to water, they usually cost more than conventional campers.

Apex travel trailers built by Coachmen have taken lightweight one step further.  They have a laminated fiberglass exterior and foam insulation but the layer between the outer fiberglass and the foam insulation is Azdel composite panels instead of plywood.  Azdel panels are thin rigid panels made from a synthetic material that is impervious to water, won’t rot or mold and is extremely light weight.  It cannot delaminate the way the plywood underlayment can when wet.  Costs a little more, but not as much as you might expect. For example, the Apex model 288BH has double over double bunkbeds, private walkaround queen bedroom and outdoor patio kitchen.  It weighs under 5000 lbs. and is selling for under $26,000 during our Anniversary Sale.

SMALL MOTORHOMES –  The pet-friendly Thor A.C.E. class A motorhomes were so popular that we ran out early last summer.  We stocked up this Spring and have more on the way, so we hope we won’t run out this year.  There are several floorplans from 27 to 31 feet, all featuring private bedrooms with walkaround queen beds (or king in one model).  They also have an electric drop-down queen bed over the front living area, which provides a second bed that can be left permanently made up, if you need it.

There are exciting developments in really small, fun-to-drive motorhomes.  Without the height and cabover of a conventional Class C, they are sleek and aerodynamic.  Winnebago’s diesel View has been around for a while.  Their model 24 G has a rear slide-out that makes possible a walk-around queen bed in the rear bedroom.  The new Four Winds Siesta 24 SR has a similar rear slide-out bedroom and is also on a Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis.

The big news this year is Winnebago’s sleek new Trend Motorhome built on the RAM ProMaster 6 cylinder, front-wheel drive, gasoline chassis.  All the people here at Camp Land that have taken it for a test drive came back with the same report: “It is a joy to drive!”  There are two floorplans, both of which have a queen size electric drop-down bed over the living area.  One model also has a permanent ground level bed in the rear.  If ease of driving is high on your priority list, you should look at the Winnebago Trend.

LARGER MOTORHOMES   Two 35 foot Winnebago models have emerged as leaders among the larger motorhomes.  The bath-and-a-half Vista 35F has created a bit of a sensation.  It has a great master bedroom suite with a large bathroom and another half bath in the living area.

The Sightseer 35G has 3 big slide-outs which allow room for a king size bed and a spectacular living room.  It comes with washer/dryer, LED lighting and all the quality extras you would expect in a Winnebago Sightseer.

GRAND DESIGN 5th WHEELS   The Grand Design family of 5th Wheels are the most exciting new RVs we have seen in many years.  The Grand Design Solitude is an extended stay 5th Wheel that comes in several models. The bedroom is amazing. The Grand Design Reflection is a luxury 5th Wheel that falls in a popular price range.  There are several models to choose from and they sell as fast as we can get them.  The Grand Design Momentum is a top-of-the-line toy hauler available in three different floorplans.  If you are in the market for a 5th Wheel, you must see the Grand Design products.

PLEASE COME JOIN OUR SELL-A-BRATION

Come take advantage of special anniversary pricing thru June 30.  We have the best selection ever of 2014 and 2015 model RVs,  as well as a huge selection of recently traded in, pre-owned RVs.  We are open 4 evenings each week, for your convenience.  Please visit our website for more information.  www.camplandRV.com

HUNDREDS CAME FOR CAMP-LAND’S FESTIVAL OF CAMPING

Camp Land Fall Festival Seminar

There was a line waiting when the doors opened at 8:30 on Sat. Oct 12.  By the time  the first seminar started at 9:00 am, nearly 100 people were roaming the lot looking at RVs.  A few dozen settled in for donuts and coffee and the first seminar on winterizing your RV.  Some folks attended nearly every seminar and others drifted in and out, catching a seminar here and there, roaming the lot in between.  It was very relaxed and everyone seemed to be having fun.  2013 Festival00072013 Festival0003

 

 

 

 

The pigs were roasting on the spit, and some of the kids were having fun learning a new craft.  The Seminars continued, with presentations on TV satellite systems for RVs, RV appliances and how to keep your RV from developing roof leaks.  There was a lot of friendly camping conversation around our campfire, which, like most campfires, smoked a little bit. 

Background music was provided by, “Rick and Donny”, the popular NW Indiana accoustic guitar act.  Their rendition of Beetles favorites and other

Rick and Donny

RICK AND DONNY

popular songs was just right for the outdoors, campsite atmosphere.

The elevated rear patio of the Grand Design Momentum Toy Hauler 5th Wheel made a perfect stage for their performance.

Everyone enjoyed a fine lunch of roast pork, baked beans, potato salad and dessert.

Representatives of RV manufacturers were mingling and chatting with campers all day, as were some members of the press.  During a short noon intermission, the President of Grand Design RV, Don Clark, cut the ribbon and presented the keys to Camp-Land management for the 1000th Solitude 5th Wheel Camper manufactured at the new Grand Design plant in Middlebury, IN.

As the beautiful, sunshine-filled day came to a close, a number of visitors came to me to express their appreciation for the day’s hospitality and events.  That means a lot to me and especially to all the members of the Camp-Land team who spent many long hours planning and preparing for the Festival.  Thank you all for coming.
