After much anticipation, Forest River Inc.’s Surveyor 10th Anniversary Edition models will be showcased September 20–22 during this week’s Elkhart County 4th Annual RV Open House at the company’s expansive display at its Dynamax campus in East Elkhart.
According to a press release, Surveyor is a fully laminated lightweight product that offers 23 floorplans ranging in lengths from 20 to 35 feet and featuring non-slideout units, expandables, above-floor slideouts and flush-floor sliderooms. Dry weights for the 10th Anniversary Surveyor start at 3,100 lbs.
“Our 10th Anniversary Edition is the direct result of listening to our dealer network and travel trailer enthusiasts and meeting their needs,” said General Manager Kevin McArt. “We pride ourselves on developing cutting edge floor plans packed with features and benefits unsurpassed in the lite weight trailer market today. Our new Surveyor Select and Sport trailers are for anybody looking to optimize and enhance their RV experience.”
“Surveyor is known for its dependability in the market place as well as its superior construction,” said Sales Manager Mike Dolowy. “We provide our dealer network with a product they can feel comfortable in selling.
Upgrades include Lamilux 4000 “Cool Vanilla” gel-coat fiberglass, slam-latch baggage doors, crowned roof with aluminum truss rafters, Jensen LCD flat screen TV, hitch light, ball bearing drawer guides, black external trim, pass through storage compartment light, assist grab handles, tinted skylight/roof vents and the 10th Anniversary graphics package.
Other amenities include raised panel cabinet doors throughout with residential hidden hinges, outside shower, heated and enclosed underbelly, E-Z glide dinette table, detachable power cord, independent torsion axles, water filtration system, powered stabilizer jacks, Serta “Dreamscape” mattress and gas/electric DSI water heater.
“Innovation is the road to success in this industry and I feel that we have accomplished that,” said McArt. “We have received a lot of acclaim for our Vista Lounge concept as well as our rear drop-floor frame design in the SV305 model. Another notable feature is the Versa Track storage system that is utilized in our outside kitchen floor plans.
Surveyor towables are manufactured in Goshen, Ind., as well as Dallas, Ore. “Our West Coast operation has seen tremendous growth over this past year,” said McArt. “We are able to provide our West Coast dealer network with the same product that is manufactured here in Indiana without the added freight cost – and that is a huge advantage for those dealers.”
