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.
