Keystone RV Co. has begun shipping to dealers the first of the new mid-priced, high-profile Avalanche fifth-wheels. The “little brother” of the new Alpine luxury line, Avalanche is the first all new Keystone fifth-wheel to be completely designed from the ground up to meet the demands of today’s RV camping family, according to a news release. Avalanche is available in lengths from 32 feet to 38 feet with an MSRP starting in the upper $40,000s. The floorplan mix offers a variety of choices. For example, the 340TG offers a huge private front bedroom with queen bed, full length wardrobe, chest of drawer and a rear bunk/play room with entertainment center, sofa, bunk beds and sleeping for four. The 340TG also includes an outdoor kitchen that’s built into one of the rear slides so as to free up more living space in the rear bunk/play room. According to Keystone Avalanche general manager Ryan Juday, “The Avalanche is the first family-oriented fifth-wheel designed for extended stay and play. While other fifth-wheels in this category lowered slide room heights and switched to lesser quality components, we have gone the opposite direction — more exterior storage, more interior storage, higher ceilings, larger slides, and overall, more of the comforts and quality today’s family expects. Dealer reaction has been extremely positive and in many cases the product is retail sold before it even gets delivered.” Additional Avalanche floorplans include a rear kitchen model, rear bedroom model and several rear living room models. Says Scott Parkhurst, product manager, “The Avalanche family can easily find a floorplan to fit their lifestyle, not vice versa. This is one of the goals we set out to accomplish when we created the Avalanche and we are succeeding.”
