CAMP LAND RV NEWSLETTER
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.
