Fleetwood RV Launches New ASV Line of Folding Trailers

Nov. 30, 2004 By ORC STAFF

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® 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 call.”

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® 302 acrylic tenting. Both travel trailers feature increased storage capacity, Windsor Birch cabinetry, and radius countertops for a more residential look and feel.
