“We’ve had a great response to the new Ambassador and Vacationer during the Dealer Days and we can’t wait to show them to customers,” said Mike Snell, president of Holiday Rambler. “Both of these floorplans are similar, but we’re offering them at gas and diesel price points where the market is strong and consumers are asking for more product variety.”
The 2015 Ambassador 38-foot Class A Diesel coach is equipped with three slideouts and features a bath-and-a-half floorplan. The opposing living area slideouts offer a generous family gathering area. The Ambassador maintains side-swing luggage doors and pass-through basement storage for increased cargo functionality. An optional drop-down overhead bed is available.
The Ambassador is manufactured in three classic exterior-color options and includes two choices for interior design and two wood color choices. The coach also features solid wood doors and slideout facia.
The 2015 Vacationer 36DBT is a 37-foot Class A gas motorhome, also offering three slideouts and a bath-and-a-half floor plan. The master bath includes a double-sink vanity. True to the Holiday Rambler brand, the Vacationer includes side-swing luggage doors and pass-through basement storage.

Fleetwood, American Coach Add to Model Lines

Fleetwood RV and American Coach are showing new models and features to consumers at this week’s 2014 America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa.
“New for all Fleetwood models is our newest wood stain color, Butternut,” said John Draheim, president and CEO of Fleetwood RV and American Coach, in a press release. “We are fortunate for loyal customers that continue to provide us such positive feedback on our products. It is important to us that we continue to bring them more options and include their feedback in our newest designs. The Butternut wood color is just that.”
Among those new models is the recently debuted Fleetwood Discovery 37R, which received a positive review in MotorHome Magazine. The Discovery 37R is now available to consumers at Fleetwood dealerships.
“We received a very positive review in Motorhome Magazine on our 37R Discovery, and dealer response has also been very positive,” said Draheim. “This will be the first major show where consumers get a chance to see the 37R, and additionally where they get to see our new light Butternut wood option.”
Also on display is a special issue Fleetwood Storm, the 28MS Game-Day Edition. The Storm is optioned with special tailgate lifestyle features like a Weber grill, outdoor refrigerator, slideout bar, extra-length awning, exterior 50-inch LED HDTV and HD satellite system. “The Game-Day special edition takes all your dream tailgate features and puts them in a compact and affordable Class A, just in time for football season,” said Director of Marketing Steven Hileman.
Expanding the selection of Fleetwood Discovery Class A diesel options for customers, an all-new 37R is a quad-slide, single bath floor plan with a free-standing recliner/footrest, freestanding dinette, fireplace, and opposing sofa with air mattress. The coach also includes a stackable washer/dryer unit in the master bedroom. The 37R is the only Discovery floorplan to include an L-shaped pull-out counter extension which expands to increase linear counter footage in the kitchen area. The coach includes an 8.0kW Onan Quiet Diesel generator with slide.
American Coach will also reveal a new wood color at the show, Toffee. The new lighter wood option offers an additional premium hand-rubbed hardwood cabinetry option to consumers.  
“Our customers and dealers have been asking for another wood color option and we’re very pleased with the result. The new Toffee wood color turned out fantastic and we think consumers will agree,” states Lenny Razo, Director of Sales for the Eastern Region. “We are also showing our first single-bath, single rear-axle American Coach in many years.”
Referring to the new quad-slide American Revolution 39A shown for the very first time this week at the Hershey event, Razo added, “This new floorplan gives consumers a wider variety of floorplan configurations within the American Coach family without giving up the amenities they are so accustomed to.”
The American Revolution is the only coach in the lineup with a shorter, more space-conscious design, offering a single-bath that allows owners access from the living quarters and master bedroom and includes a double glass-bowl vanity with overhead cabinetry. With a quad-slide layout, the 39A provides a comfortable living area with L-shaped sofa transformer, which converts to a 95-inch-by-70-inch bed, and an Ekornes consul-plus chair. The all-new Revolution 39A is a perfect option for owners who want to experience the same quality luxury of an American Coach without the extra length.
Fleetwood RV products and factory representatives will be available in Booth No. 519 at the Giant Center in Hershey.  American Coach is located in Booth No. 521. For more information about Fleetwood RV products, visit

Heartland Adds ‘Side Patio’ to Big Country Line

Heartland Recreational Vehicles continues to be a leader in innovative design, creating an integrated outdoor gathering area in its recently launched 3900FLP Big Country high-profile fifth-wheel with the addition of the company’s exclusive side patio onto its popular front living model.
With the adjoining patio situated just off the kitchen area, the 41-foot, five-slide 3900FLP features a wide sliding glass door that transitions guests and family to an area that adds over 70 square feet of living space complete with a flat-screen TV and exterior sound system. The side patio, first engineered for Heartland’s selection of toy haulers, represents an industry first in the luxury fifth-wheel segment. 
“The 3900FLP caters to the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of today’s RVers,” said General Manager Joel Eberlein, noting the coach is debuting this week at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa., and will also be shown at the Elkhart County RV Open House. “With the side patio, people don’t have to step down to the ground to enjoy their campsite. It offers an ideal entertainment area, allowing people to become engaged inside and outside the coach, much like a residential home.”
Eberlein reported that the side patio, built with a spring assist allowing for raising and lowering by one person, boasts a 1,500-pound capacity and aluminum side rails that are quick to set up and take down. A robust latch system coupled with heavy-duty seals on the perimeter of the patio ensure stability when the RV is in travel mode.
“Just like Heartland’s toy haulers, the 3900FLP’s side patio has undergone extensive engineering and durability testing to ensure resilience to on-the-road conditions,” Eberlein said. For added stability and handling, the 3900FLP is equipped with 7,000-pound Dexter axles with E-Z lube hubs, Dexter E-Z Flex suspension and Lippert’s Correct Track Alignment, complemented by four shock absorbers and 2015 G-rated tires.
The fifth-wheel’s interior is set off by a homelike cooking area that includes a recessed stove and optional residential refrigerator. For accommodating guests who congregate in the kitchen, the 3900FLP offers a two-tier dinette featuring a bar-height countertop design. “There has never been a kitchen designed with this kind of storage and open space,” said Eberlein.
The open concept living area, accented by opposing sliderooms, also provides an inviting gathering area with two full-size pull-out sofas and theater seating for viewing the 55-inch LED TV. Other amenities include solid-stained hardwood throughout, updated LED lighting and wall d├ęcor.
“Space, function and smart design is what Big Country is all about,” said Heartland President Chris Hermon. “That attention to detail enables Heartland to build fifth-wheels that don’t sacrifice the key ‘nut and bolts’ that other full-time brands give up.” 
He added, “The number of people looking to full-time in their RV is growing, and Heartland continues to be the leader in this market segment.”
