Lance's dual slide camper

While Los Angeles was showing myriad cars and crossovers, the RV industry held its national trade show in Louisville, Ky. Here are just a few of the interesting vehicles, as compiled by Truck Trend magazine.

Lance Camper Manufacturing Corp. debuted the 1172 dual-slide camper with dry bath, plenty of window area, bed space for five or six, and 42 gallons of fresh water. You will need a truck with a minimum 4000-pound payload capacity.

Thor Motor Coach joined the Super-C motorhome business with a 35-footer on an F-550 cab and chassis, while Dynamax has a taller-roof DynaQuest XL with floorplans to 39 feet on the Cummins-ISC powered Freightliner M2 chassis. Newmar Corp.’s all-new Dutch Star offers 10 floorplans from 38 to 42 feet, some with bath-and-a-half, on Freightliner XCR chassis, with Cummins ISL 400- or 450-hp engines.

On the trailer side, Gulf Stream Coach Inc. incorporated a bathroom with a slideout in some Gulf Breeze and Streamlite trailers for more changing room.

Airstream Inc. brings back the Land Yacht name, though this time on a concept trailer rather than production motorhome. The 28-foot Yacht is the result of a partnership with Tecnoform and a designer from Riva yachts, and features teak trim and white inlay boat-deck flooring, a galley that can be hidden when not needed, and a front bedroom/rear living arrangement able to host five overnight.
