Fleetwood Touting Excursion Line in Louisville
Building on the momentum from this year’s debut of the compact Excursion Class A diesel pusher series, Decatur, Ind.-based Fleetwood RV Inc. showed two new 35-foot, low-profile floorplans in Louisville. “We have capitalized on a growing segment in the diesel Class A market,” said Marketing Manager Steve Hileman. “People love how the Excursion handles. We’re attracting Class A owners looking to downsize and fifth-wheel buyers wanting to upgrade to a diesel-powered motorhome.” Designed to fit under a 12-foot garage door, the 35B boasts an economical 10-14 mpg while still offering 8-foot ceilings. Built on Fleetwood’s Powerbridge chassis construction utilizing the Freightliner XCS series chassis, the 35B is equipped with a 300-hp Cummins ISB 6.7L engine and two sliderooms. Features include a Hide-a-Loft option with a drop-down bed, mid-coach residential refrigerator and a hide-away dinette and breakfast bar that increase dining capacity to six people. MSRP is around $188,000. Fleetwood also showcased its 40E Class A Discovery, marketed as a full-timer’s coach on a non-tag axle platform. Offering a large pantry and a bath-and-a-half layout, the triple-slide 40E retails for around $281,700.
