They have drawn rave reviews from around North America, and now Earthbound Recreational Vehicles LLC is bringing environment-friendly “Dillon” and “Morrison” RVs to Abbotsford, British Columbia, this weekend, the Abbotsford Times reported.
The new models will be on display at this weekend’s Earlybird RV Show and Sale at the Tradex trade and exhibition center in Abbotsford. Each model weighs between 1,500 and 2,500 pounds less than most conventional RVs, which should help users save roughly 12% in fuel, said David Hoefer, vice president of sales for the Marion, Ind.-based company.
“There really is nothing like it in the RV industry,” said Hoefer.
The Earthbound models, which have been on display at other shows in Tampa, Fla., Chicago and Toronto, have received numerous positive reviews from the public and RV publications, such as roamingtime.com.
The two new models are made of recyclable, low-organic, volatile-compound construction materials, which are also used in other motor vehicles, as well as airplanes.
Part of what makes these new RVs so light, said Hoefer, is the absence of wood, which is usually found in other models.
That feature, along with the material the RVs are constructed out of, make it possible for mid-sized SUV’s to tow the trailer, he said, adding customers do not need a separate tow vehicle to use these models.
The Earlybird RV Show and Sale began Thursday (Feb. 3) and hauls on right through Sunday evening, and provides visitors with a variety of other features on display.
