Forest River XLR Partners With ‘Bone Collector’
Forest River Inc.’s XLR division announced its partnership with Michael Waddell, Travis “T-Bone” Turner and Nick Mundt – members of the Outdoor Channel’s “Bone Collector” team.
According to a press release, the team will travel with an XLR Hyper Lite 29HFS travel trailer toy hauler while filming its top-rated television show and during attendance at “Bone Collector” tour events throughout the country on a regular basis.
The new “Bone Collector” is the No. 1 show on the Outdoor Channel, reaching 908,000 unique households during the month of January with a gross Nielsen rating of 3.07. The “Bone Collector” team is led by Waddell, who is one of the most popular personality in hunting. Besides hosting “Bone Collector,” “Realtree Roadtrips,” and other television shows over the years, Waddell has also been selected as the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) spokesman.
Turner has also appeared on several TV shows and videos, including Realtree’s “Monster Bucks” video series, before joining “Bone Collector.” Mundt rounds out the team with years of experience as a professional guide and field producer. He has proven this season that he is the go-to guy when it comes to collecting big bucks.
“This is the perfect fit between the ‘Bone Collector’ team, and a cross-over RV product designed specifically to appeal to fans who enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle,” said XLR National Sales Manager Brent Stevens.
The 29HFS Hyper Lite was selected to pair with the team’s new Chevy half-ton truck. The lightweight towable model offers two complete bedrooms – one up front and one in the rear for privacy. It also has plenty of space for the team’s quad and outdoor gear. Waddell added the electric bed and 4.0 generator with fuel station options to outfit the 29HFS Hyper Lite for dry camping, while on the “Bone Collector” tour.”
