Monaco RV LLC today (March 8) announced the debut of the new Holiday Rambler Aluma-Lite 31SFD Class C.
This small–in-stature model is a crossover of a Class C and Class A floorplan, according to a news release. The expansive 23-foot full wall slideout floorplan provides the roominess of a Class A layout by enormously enlarging the living, kitchen and bedroom space. The slide also provides a private bath, with dual private entrances through bedroom or hall, an option usually only found in Class A models.
“No other manufacturer is offering this type of crossover, with a Class A floorplan on a Class C chassis,” said Scott Jacobson, national sales manager for Holiday Rambler. “The Aluma-Lite 31SFD is part of Holiday Rambler’s new direction, as we develop floorplans with more functional spaces in smaller, less expensive models.”
The family friendly, easy to maneuver Holiday Rambler Aluma-Lite 31SFD is built on the Ford E-Series Chassis with E450 engine. For improved fuel economy, the Aluma-Lite front cap is aerodynamically designed to reduce wind turbulence and drag. The battery access is built into the entryway for easy maintenance, along with a 5,000-pound hitch for towing.
Along with the large slideout, the Aluma-Lite 31SFD is also built with large size features. A king-size 51-gallon fresh water tank allows for extended camping capabilities, a critical component with today’s RVers. The extra-large exterior bay stores all equipment in a central, convenient location. Entry into the Aluma-Lite is made easy with an extra-wide entrance door.
Inside, Class A-style features make the Aluma-Lite feel spacious. The full wall slideout allows for an expansive kitchen boasting a booth dinette with a pop-up 26-inch TV with lift in a dinette console, making it storable when not in use. MSRP: $86,993.

Monaco RV LLC, Coburg, Ore., has reintroduced the Aluma-Lite brand name to the Holiday Rambler Class A gas motorhome lineup. Prominent in Monaco’s Louisville Show display was the low-profile, 31-foot 2012 Alumi-Lite slide-in-a-slide floorplan. The unit is built on an 18,000-pound GVWR Ford Super Duty chassis powered by a 362-hp Triton V-10 engine. ”The Alumi-Lite name hasn’t been around on a Class A since 1994,” said Scott Jacobson, Holiday Rambler national sales manager. The Aluma-Lite 31SF3 floorplan sports a 7-foot 9-inch long slideout housed in a 23-foot full wall slide that has an L-shaped sectional sofa that sits behind the driver’s seat. ”It’s a smaller coach that gives better fuel efficiency with as much floorspace as a larger motorhome,” Jacobson said. The Aluma-Lite features 115 cubic feet of exterior pass-through storage. Two other floorplans featuring single slideouts will available by spring. MSRP: $99,000.
