Chalet RV Introduces Triple-Slide Truck Camper
A-frame folding camping trailer manufacturer Chalet RV Inc., Albany, Ore., has been aggressively expanding its product offerings. That was made apparent at last week’s 47th Annual National RV Trade show, where the company unveiled a triple-slide truck camper and a small fifth-wheel. Chalet president Chris Hanson calls the company’s new truck camper a “modular Class C.” ”All you have to buy is the power unit (pickup truck),” Hanson said. The 11 1/2-foot camper, with a base retail of $37,799, is equipped with opposing slideouts and a third that comes off the back of the unit, creating a true Class C feel. At the show, Chalet also introduced the 21 1/2-foot Takena5 fifth-wheel with a single galley slideout for a base retail price of $14,900. A 19-foot fifth-wheel is in development.
