Towable builder CrossRoads RV announced the introduction of the Altitude AF-3712 fifth-wheel toy hauler.
The Topeka, Ind.-based company reported in a press release that a full-profile exterior with fiberglass front cap and laminated sidewall construction add curb appeal to the Altitude. The wide-body fiver also features a 12-foot garage with an 8-foot ramp door to ensure that customers will have plenty of room for all their toys and is designed to pair with a 3/4-ton truck. The Altitude lineup currently also includes two travel trailer floorplans in addition to the all-new fifth-wheel.
“Throughout the past several years the toy hauler segment has experienced market share growth year after year, with much of its emphasis on the higher-end price scale,” said Erick Esch, Altitude product manager. “The Altitude finally addresses our dealers’ demands to offer a more affordable toy hauler with high-end amenities without the high-end price tag.”
Other highlights of Altitude AF-3712 toy hauler include:
• A half-bathroom conveniently located right off the garage.
• Solid-surface countertops.
• 18-foot power awning with LED lights.
• 30-gallon fuel station with generator prep.
• 108-gallon fresh water tank.
• 50-amp service.
