‘Truck Trend’ Weighs in on Louisville Rollouts

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.
