Travel Lite Enters Trailer Market with New ‘idea’
Truck camper manufacturer Travel Lite Inc. has expanded into lightweight towables with the new entry-level ”idea” travel trailer. ”This fits well with our existing production line,” said Dustin Johns, vice president of the 15-year-old New Paris, Ind., company. ”It’s going to be a unique product in its visual appeal.” The ”idea” will be introduced to dealers at the upcoming 49th Annual RV Trade Show Nov. 29-Dec. 1 in Louisville, Ky., where Travel Lite also will display its new 770 Super Lite truck camper. The ”idea” will be available in three 15- to 17-foot ultra-light floorplans — the dry weight of the 15-footer is 2,550 pounds — with gel coat fiberglass sidewalls on lightweight banak wood substrate with a molded front cap to increase aerodynamics. ”For a small trailer ”idea,” is going to be very plush,” Johns said. ”Idea is a small and lightweight towable that will do well with regard to price and gas mileage.” Features include cherry cabinets, molded countertops and two-tone cushioned seats. Base MSRP: $9,995.
