MVP RV Intros New Impact Toy Hauler Line

MVP RV's Impact toy hauler for 2011

MVP RV's Impact toy hauler for 2011

MVP RV Inc. announced Monday (Dec. 26) that it will be introducing a brand new line of toy haulers.

“Impact was developed with a clear direction and vision,” Scott Richgruber, Impact national sales and product manager, stated in a news release.

“Affordability. Living here in Southern California, we know from personal experience how hard this region has been hit by the economy. Therefore, we wanted to create a toy hauler that the average working family could afford, without giving up the features these experienced customers demand. Southern California is the RV industry’s toy hauler capital and it is a very competitive market here,” he said.

“You can’t just take a regular trailer and add a ramp to the back. There are many specific features and construction requirements needed to build a first class toy hauler. Plus, shipping costs from areas outside the southwest make it prohibitive to be truly price — competitive in this segment,” he added.

The all new 2011 Impact comes standard with a 40-gallon fueling station, 100-gallon fresh water capacity, awning, black tank flush, LED clearance lights, decked floor with R-8 insulation, exterior speakers, pressure washer, stab jacks on all four corners, deluxe galley faucet with pullout sprayer, 13.5 Btu A/C, raised panel cabinet doors and full length drawer guides.

Mike Thompson’s RV Superstores is the first dealer to sign up with Impact.

“We could not be happier with this product,” said Frank De Gelas, president/secretary. “This is a segment of the market we have been missing, and MVP RV seems to have hit the mark with this new line.”

MVP RV Inc. builds travel trailers under the brand names Coast and Summit, fifth-wheels under the brand names Jazz and Destiny, Class C motorhomes under the brand name Tahoe, and toy haulers under the brand names Impact, Vortex and Envy.

MVP RV’s Filling West Coast Class C Market

December 17, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

MVP RV Tahoe

MVP RV Tahoe

MVP RV Inc., Riverside, Calif., is taking an aggressive approach to the West Coast RV market with the recent introduction of the luxury Destiny fifth-wheel and the Tahoe Class C motorhome.

Scott Degnan, MVP RV vice president of sales, said that the industry shakeup during the Great Recession has left a void on the West Coast Class C motorhome market, and that a luxury fifth-wheel was the next step up for the company previously known mostly for its toy haulers.

”All the manufacturers who built Class C’s left the West Coast,” he said. ”There continues to be a tremendous demand out on the West Coast for Class C’s, including rentals. And we are in the biggest fifth-wheel market in the country.

In addition to the Tahoe minimotorhome and Destiny fifth-wheel introduced at the 48th Annual National RV Trade show Nov. 30-Dec. 2, MVP RV also redesigned the Jazz mid-profile fiver.

The new Tahoe Class C is available in three 23- to 31-foot floorplans with up to three slideouts on the Ford E-350 and E-450 chassis for a $62,000 base MSRP.

Additionally, MVP showed a prototype of an all-electric Class A motorhome in October at the 25th World Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Symposium (EVS) in Shenzhen, China, at the behest of MVP RV investor Winston Chung, developer of the lithium-ion battery,.

The 42-foot 44,000-pound GVWR all-electric prototype, named the ”Winston” and purchased by Chung, is powered by Thunder Sky batteries produced by Chung’s China-based Winston Battery LLC.

Inside, the quadslide, tag axle coach has the look and feel of a diesel motorhome with granite countertops and tile floors. ”The only difference is that it runs on batteries,” Degnan said. ”It’s very quiet and has a lot of torque. It takes off like a golf cart.”

Degnan declined to specify the coach’s chassis or how many batteries it takes to power the Winston, which was developed on the hush-hush and isn’t likely to show up on the U.S. consumer market anytime soon. The prototype has no backup engine, gets only 180 miles on a charge and has a top speed of 70 mph. On the U.S. retail market, the Winston probably would cost in the range of $1 million, Degnan said.

”We are way ahead of the curve on this; we’re not ready for U.S. production,” Degnan said. ”It’s too expensive and America’s not ready for it. The diesel market in the U.S. has been hampered and this is more expensive than that.”

Another prototype, however, is in the works. ”We are going to build another one in Riverside in the near future and tighten it up a bit,” Dengan said.

The Winston was cited by Recreation Vehicle Industry (RVIA) President Richard Coon as evidence of forward thinking R&D in the RV industry during RVIA’s Outlook Breakfast Nov. 30 attended by more than 1,000 people as the national trade show opened.

November 10, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Thunder Sky Battery Ltd., a lithium-ion battery producer, is scheduled to team up with the U.S.-based MVP RV Inc. to spend approximate HK$10 billion ($1 billion U.S.) in total to build an electric-vehicle plant in Hong Kong next year, China Knowledge has reported.

According to Zhong Xin Jia, vice president of the listed firm, at the 25th World Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition Symposium and Exhibition held in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, Thunder Sky Battery will have a rapid business growth in the next 10 years, but he did not disclose the details of the new plant.

MVP RV is located in southern California and mainly manufactures travel trailers, toy haulers and fifth-wheel trailers.

Thunder Sky Battery’s competitive ability is the huge capacity of up to 10,000 ampere-hours in lithium-ion batteries, which need only 20 minutes to be charged up, Zhong added.

In addition, the Hong Kong-listed company is in talks with potential partners to enter the public e-vehicle market in Shenzhen, in which the local government hopes to have 4,000 electrical buses and 6,000 electrical taxis by the end of 2011.
