    RIVERSIDE, Calif., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fleetwood RV, a
 leading producer of recreational vehicles, debuted its 2005 line of folding
 trailers including the 2005 Scorpion and Evolution.  These exciting new
 folding trailer additions are featured highlights at the 42nd Annual National
 RVIA tradeshow in Louisville, KY, November 30 -- December 2, 2004.
     The 2005 Scorpion and Evolution are Fleetwood's first Activity Support
 Vehicle (ASV) folding trailers.  The Scorpion, a folding toy hauler, includes
 a large rear storage deck and living area with two separate sleeping areas.
 The Evolution features a heavy-duty shock suspension system for the RVer who
 likes to live outside of the box.  Both models feature unique off-road
 construction and ASV interiors at lower pricing that allows outdoor
 enthusiasts of all ages a chance to stay where they play.
     Exterior highlights on the 2005 Scorpion and Evolution include
 Sunbrella(R) 302 acrylic tenting for increased protection against the
 elements, and powder-coated steel seat framing.  Inside, the Scorpion features
 a three-burner range and microwave, AM/FM radio with CD player, powder-coated
 cabinetry and waterproof countertops.
     "Fleetwood recognized the tremendous potential in the ASV category and
 then helped to drive its rapid growth with our highly innovative GearBox ASV
 brand," said Chris Braun, Executive Vice President for Fleetwood RV.  "We
 later expanded our ASV offerings to include value-priced ASV versions of our
 Mallard and Pioneer towables.  Our customers have told us that they are also
 looking for an ASV with the amenities and versatility that has made the
 GearBox so popular, but at a lower price point so that more consumers can
 enjoy the RV lifestyle.  The new Scorpion and Evolution ASVs answer that
     In addition to the new ASV folding trailer line-up, Fleetwood also
 launched its 2005 Resort EXT and TNT lightweight expandable travel trailers in
 Louisville.  The Resort EXT's power-assisted rear master bed extension adds
 convenience unique to expandable travel trailers.  The Resort TNT is a hybrid
 travel trailer with Sunbrella(R) 302 acrylic tenting.  Both travel trailers
 feature increased storage capacity, Windsor Birch cabinetry, and radius
 countertops for a more residential look and feel.
