Prime Time Manufacturing, a division of Forest River Inc., will introduce the all-new Spartan 300 Series toy haulers during the 7th Annual Elkhart County Open House, which opens today (Sept. 16) and runs through Thursday.

The complete 300 Series lineup includes travel trailer floorplans consisting of open garage layouts along with separated garages and a full line of fifth-wheels.

“We are extremely pleased with the retail activity that we’ve seen this year on the Spartan toy hauler,” said Spartan Product Manager Adam Smith. “The 300 Series SUT’s are designed to expand the retail sales for our dealers by targeting the travel trailer customer and mid-priced fifth wheel segment. “There are different price segments in the toy hauler market, so having a fifth-wheel with a base MSRP $10,000 less than a regular Spartan fifth-wheel and a line of travel trailers positioned directly in the heart of the travel trailer market increases the amount of customers our dealers can sell to.”

Standard items on the Spartan 300 Series toy haulers include LED television, residential furniture, dual Happi-Jack bed lift system, “Quiet Cool” ducted A/C, 50-amp service, tan high-gloss fiberglass exterior with colored front caps, electric awning with LED light, EZ Lube axles, and a winter package featuring an enclosed heated underbelly and R-52 Insulation.

Base MSRP for the 300 Series fifth wheel is $52,250 and the travel trailer is $38,425.

The Prime Time Manufacturing display will be located at Forest River Inc.’s Dynamax facilities on County Road 6 on the northeast side of Elkhart.  For additional information, visit

Prime Time Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Elkhart, Ind.-based Forest River Inc., announced the release of its new Crusader Lite half-ton series fifth-wheel line.

“The Crusader Lite has been engineered to be the smallest and lightest fifth-wheel ever offered from Prime Time. Our product team has worked hard to help create a super light, fully-featured fifth-wheel that has dazzling looks,” said Jeff Wagner, product manager for Wakarusa, Ind.-based Crusader. “Even though our current Crusader is retailing well for our dealers, we recognized an additional opportunity to better meet the growing customer demand for lighter weight and more affordable fifth-wheels.”

Prime Time is in full production with the new product and units have started to arrive at many dealer locations.  Three Way Campers of Marietta, Ga., received one of the first Crusader Lite 28RL models.

Owner David Porter offered, “The all-new Crusader Lite arrived with an easy-to-tow weight, has awesome eye appeal, and is priced exactly where it needs to be. After we received our first 28RL, we sold it in only a matter of hours.”

The Crusader Lite features champagne high-gloss fiberglass, aerodynamic Super-Turn colored front cap, LED lighted awning and large pass-through storage on the exterior.  The interior offers upgraded residential furniture, LED ceiling lights, residential sized showers, designer window treatment, and abundant kitchen storage.

Crusader Lite has a base MSRP of $38,900.
