Dutchmen Debuts Fiberglass Sidewall Package
Dutchmen Manufacturing Inc. has introduced an optional new fiberglass sidewall package that, according to a release, enhances the appearance of the trailer while also protecting it from road hazards. Available on Dutchmen Lite and Four Winds Express Lite travel trailers, the new sidewall option replaces the standard corrugated aluminum exterior siding. “The new package creates a durable fiberglass sidewall option on entry-level price point units,” reported Steve Paul, vice president and general manager of Dutchmen Manufacturing Inc., a Goshen, Ind.-based subsidiary of Thor Industries, Inc. “Our customers now have a cost-effective alternative to aluminum-framed, laminated sidewall products.” According to Paul, initial dealer reception has been positive, and the company is in the planning stages of offering the package on larger Dutchmen and Four Winds models. The new fiberglass package will be on display at Dutchmen’s open house, scheduled for August 21-23 at the company’s Goshen headquarters.
