Shasta RV recently introduced a new line of ultra-lightweight travel trailers under the Freeport brand name.

“Freeport provides our customers with a product that looks and feels like an upper mid-line travel trailer, while positioning it at an entry level price point,” Brad Whitehead, president of Middlebury, Ind.-based Shasta, stated in a news release. “Freeport is priced right, positioned right and weighs light, and these floorplans will appeal to everyone.”

Freeport features a walkable, tapered roof that’s covered with one-piece seamless EPDM rubber. Laminated walls consist of welded aluminum framing with R-9 insulation and are skinned with fiberglass. Underneath, it’s protected by a wrapped vapor barrier and heated/enclosed underbelly.

Inside, custom-designed decors add eye appeal and long life. Freeport boasts pocket bore screwed cabinetry and glazed, arched cathedral cabinet doors throughout, as well as solid wood drawer fronts and large overhead cabinets. An auto-ignition furnace with wall thermostat and dual-ducted roof air provide residential comfort. A convertible sofa, 23-inch LED HDTV and large panoramic windows complete the interior.

Freeport’s kitchens include a three-burner cooktop with high-output front burner and electronic ignition, a large oven, carousel microwave and a double-door refrigerator. Laminated countertops, cabinets with ball bearing drawer guides, a stainless steel 50/50 deep-well sink with high-rise faucet, comfortable dinettes and a skylight with pleated shade complete the kitchen. Bedrooms offer a deluxe innerspring queen mattress with bedspread, and full-length shirt wardrobes, along with stereo speakers and cable TV hookup. Baths feature a vanity with large sink, medicine cabinet with mirror and foot-flush toilet, as well as an ABS tub/shower surround.

Optional equipment includes a residential hide-a-bed sleeper sofa, free-standing dinette with four chairs, deluxe power awning, a rear dinette in place of a lower bunk, aluminum rims and an air conditioner upgrade, as well as Premium Camping and Lightweight Luxury packages.

Shasta is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2011. For more information, call (574) 825-7178.
