Yellowstone RV has announced the debut of the RidgeLine full profile fifth-wheel at next week’s National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky.
“This new product is loaded with value added features for the retail customer,” Mark Lucas of Yellowstone RV stated in a news release. “Not only do we have residential-sized real hardwood cabinetry, walk-around king and queen size beds, radius interior walls, and other items you expect at this price point, but we also offer full hydraulic front landing gear and slide mechanisms, six-sided aluminum construction, 6-foot 6-inch interior bed room height and our patent pending Grand Canyon Chassis Storage System.”
The main front storage trunk measures an astounding 44 inches tall by 65 inches wide and is completely unobstructed from side to side. Mark Dunithan, Yellowstone RV director of engineering and former head of engineering for Heartland’s toy hauler lineup, explained, “This storage is unbelievable and we are confident it is the largest exterior storage offered in any towable at this price point. In fact, we believe it may be the largest storage of any towable product except for a toy hauler.”
Dunithan employed engineering normally found only on a motorized chassis with a “fully boxed, raised rail” system, rather than the basic dropped I-beam design.
This massive storage can be used in multiple ways including golf cart or scooter transport, placement of animal crates, storage for mobile office equipment and files, transport of folding tables and full size gas grills or just to take those unsightly step ladders off of the rear cap.
Other unique RidgeLine features include bonded, frameless windows, 42-inch LCD TVs in all main living areas, 26-inch LCD TVs and built-in AM/FM/CD/DVD players in all master bedrooms. Full fiberglass showers, porcelain toilets and “back saver” solid surface vanity tops are all standard equipment. Interior slide heights are 6 feet 8 inches and main slides are featured in a decorative grasscloth.
“We also offer a built in workshop under the main awning, complete with fold down workbench and tool storage for the handyman or craft enthusiast,” added Dunithan.
Initially offered in five floorplans with both triple and quad slides available, the RidgeLine dry weights will start below 12,000 pounds, and unlike many competitors, this weight includes all forced option packages. MSRPs will start at $52,000.
The RidgeLine products will be on display in booth 3000A in the north wing of the KFEC from Nov. 30 through Dec. 2. or for more information on Yellowstone RV, Ridgeline or Canyon Trail products, please call (800) 811-0302, visit www.yellowstonervs.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
