Dutchmen Introduces SuperLite Denali Towables
Dutchmen Manufacturing Inc. has introduced the Denali SuperLite travel trailer and mid-profile fifth-wheel series, a lightweight version of its popular Denali towable line designed for towing behind mid-sized pickup trucks. Six of eight Denali SuperLite floorplans feature dry weights of 7,500 pounds or less, according to the company. The Goshen, Ind., Thor subsidiary was able to shave 800 pounds off of comparable units by employing a six-way welded aluminum cage superstructure with lightweight laminated floors and walls. An aerodynamic front profile also is intended to promote enhanced fuel economy. “The weight saving makes Denali SuperLite towable by most half-ton and one-ton trucks,” said Brent Stevens, vice president of marketing and sales. Four 26- to 31-foot travel trailer floorplans are equipped with up to two slideouts, while 26- and 27-foot fifth-wheels feature single living room slides. Solid wood cabinets, enclosed and heated underbellies and flat screen HD TVs are standard. MSRPs start at $21,500.
