According to a press relase, the video is designed to “educate consumers on the distinct advantages of the Titan Structure Frame. It graphically illustrates how the Titan frame is engineered and welded with high-quality American-made steel. The double, box-channel steel frame provides the solid base needed for a raised steel integrated bath floor that is exclusive to Lifestyle, the company said. The Titan frame also maintains its structural integrity, with far more rigidity than conventional I-beam frames, an important feature to full-time RVers.
Additional benefits of the Titan Structure frame are the raised floor that allows for the industry’s only pass-through rear basement storage on a fifth-wheel. The video also shows how Lifestyle’s true full-wall slide system — usually only found on high-end motor coaches with massive bus frames. Twelve inches of welded, box channel steel allow the full-wall slide system to be engineered on risers above the frame for a strong foundation and smooth operation. The slideouts are operated by a fully mechanical, rack and pinion system with over-sized gearing for the ultimate reliability while a center-mounted motor ensures that even torque is distributed to both sides of the slide room to prevents flexing.
“Our full-wall slide system gives full-timers the spaciousness of home without ever compromising the integrity of the frame with twisting and flex,” explained Dymon Farrer, general manager of Lifestyle Luxury RV division. “The Titan frame is designed for year-round travel and built for years of roadworthy service. Our primary buyers are retired full-timers and those who actually hit the road with their families and put the miles on a fifth-wheel. Perhaps that’s why we’ve quickly gained such a following from serious full timers.”
