Redwood Fiver has Strong Debut at RV Shows

Luxury towable builder Redwood RV reported that the introduction of its 38GK fifth-wheel has been well received in the retail marketplace since its January debut at the Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa.

According to a press release, the 38GK features a fresh, innovative kitchen and living room area, a dynamic bed/bath setting along with Redwood’s exclusive slide-in-slide technology to create a spacious floorplan.

“We were able to utilize our exclusive slide-in-slide technology to create motorhome depth in a fifth-wheel,” said Dan Tauer, product manager for the Syracuse, Ind.-based Thor Industries Inc. subsidiary. “This extra slide allows for 20 extra inches of space in the bedroom, something no other fifth-wheel offers. Hence the early season success.”

In the living room, a 55-inch LED TV sits across from the two recliners, and an optional TV placed above those chairs offers TV viewing from the kitchen area.  The residential kitchen is equipped with all of Redwood’s mainstay features, including spice racks, plate drawers, 13-gallon trash cans, and two floor-to-ceiling pull-out pantries.

“As soon as the initial seven-drawer pull-out pantry became one of the Redwood ‘go-to’ features, we knew we needed to eventually offer a floorplan that could have two of these incredible storage areas in the same kitchen,” said Tom Montague, Redwood general manager.

The 38GK also offers two bathroom vanities, up to four TVs and several of Redwood’s core standard build items including Level Up, flush mounted windows, and whisper quiet AC.

Redwood also recently released initial plans to debut the “Carriage” brand name of ultra-luxury fifth wheels to the industry, as soon as this summer.

“Redwood is our cake, and we want Carriage to be the icing,” said Tauer, adding, “We are blessed to have one successful fifth-wheel in our lineup and hopefully soon we’ll have the ultra-luxury market in our favor as well.”
