Outdoors RV's BlackStone trailer

Outdoors RV Manufacturing Inc. has introduced the BlackStone travel trailer series, the latest in the La Grande, Ore-based company’s lineup of climate-designed, four-seasons towables.

According to a press release, the BlackStone is offered in five floorplans ranging in length from 28 to 34 feet. Offering expanded interior and exterior storage space, Outdoors RV said BlackStone is targeting RVers looking to “downsize from a motorhome or larger fifth-wheel but still wanting luxury features.”

The BlackStone is also built with Outdoors RV’s “Armor Shield” construction, which places aluminum framing in eight different areas along with rigid lightweight steel trusses in the ceiling.

“This is the type of construction that the targeted RV buyers are accustomed to in the high-end fifth-wheel or motorhome they currently own,” said Jim Croxton, general manager.

Highlighted features include: On-demand tankless hot water system, vaulted radius interior ceilings, 50% larger “mountain sized” strut designed luggage doors, 70 gallons of fresh water capacity and 80 gallons of grey water capacity. Models are also available with livingroom fireplaces, wireless touch pads to operate slideouts, awnings, power stab jacks, and 60-inch by 80-inch residential queen beds.

Prior to launching the BlackStone, Outdoors RV said it consulted with its dealers, both in the U.S. and Canada. “The prototype design that was shown to dealers for feedback underwent 65 product enhancements prior to going into full production,” noted Croxton.

NormVanNess Jr., general manager at Lewiston RV in Lewiston, Idaho, stated, “The BlackStone is by far the Cadillac of the travel trailer industry with many features and construction you see in high-end fifth wheels. This BlackStone will fill the gap in the industry for those who want high-line fifth-wheel quality in a travel trailer. In my opinion, there is not a finer, high quality trailer on the market.”

    We just purchased the Blackstone 280 FKSB and will pick it up in a couple of days. Very nice unit in most cases. We are replacing a 2005 Alpenlite fiver and are used to “nice”. This new unit has it. Except for a couple of items that I will upgrade. The supplied mattress is pretty low end, and the platform it sits on is just bare and rough plywood. I will keep my old mattress and will thicken and laminate the platform. Likewise, the furniture is not the quality expected and I will replace. Other that that, from the looks I have had so far, I think we will be very satisfied with the quality of construction and function. The dealer is Lassen RV in Albany, OREGON. Talk with Brian.
