Venture RV, founded in mid-July, has augmented its lightweight SportTrek travel trailer line with the addition of a 35-foot 6-inch triple-slide floorplan. With limited options, the Venture line features eight 26 to 35-foot 6-inch floorplans, including the SportTrek 320VIK that the company took less than three months to develop after dealers at the Elkhart Open House in September suggested they wanted Venture to create a larger coach with more living space. ”We are reacting to what our dealers were asking for and it shows that we can react to the market fairly quickly,” said Dave Boggs, director of marketing and sales for the Shipshewana, Ind.-based KZRV LP subsidiary. The 320VIK floorplan, with a dry weight of 7,200 pounds, features an island kitchen and opposing living room and kitchen slideouts. ”The island kitchen opens up the kitchen area where people can hang out along with the living area,” said Boggs, adding that MSRPs range from $22,000 to $31,000.
Shipshewana, Ind.-based Venture RV, a division of KZRV LP founded in July, will be displaying its new lightweight SportTrek travel trailer during next week’s Elkhart County RV Open House.
According to a press release, Venture RV will be showing product Sept. 17-20 at its display area just south of the intersection of County Road 6 and County Road 15 in Elkhart. The display will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. In addition, there will be product set up inside the Venture facility in Shipshewana.
“We will have eight units in Elkhart, including our newest floorplan innovation – a two bedroom unit with a queen- and king-size bed,” said Dave Boggs, director of marketing and sales for Venture RV. “It’s actually a versatile model and one of the bedrooms can be configured several ways to meet the consumer’s needs. This floorplan is less than 35-feet long and has several unique features. I’m sure it will be a big hit at the show.”
Boggs added, “It’s been a lot of fun creating the SportTrek. The Venture team has taken the stance on making good floorplans even better by adding user-friendly features to make camping even more enjoyable. Dealer reaction to the product has been phenomenal and has exceeded our expectations. Dealers in both U.S. and Canada have already seen success with retail sales in just a couple of days after the product has landed.”
The SportTrek travel trailer is available in seven floorplans ranging in lengths from 26 to 34 feet. It is equipped with up to two slideouts, enclosed underbelly and champagne-colored front and back wall. The affordable lightweight travel trailer can also be towed by today’s small crossovers, SUVs and light-duty trucks.
