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, an Indiana-based manufacturer of lightweight travel trailers, will be displaying its new SportTrek line at the National RV Trade Show, Nov. 27-29 in Louisville, Ky.
“The dealer reaction to the product has been phenomenal,” Dave Boggs, director of marketing and sales for the KZRV LP subsidiary, said in a press release. “Dealers in both the U.S. and Canada have already seen success with retail sales in just days after the product has landed. We will be introducing our eighth floorplan to the dealer base at this year’s RVIA show in Booth 1120 in the South Wing.”
The new 320VIK floorplan is an island kitchen model that comes with three sliderooms, 82-inch sofa, junior dinette, in/out pass-through bathroom and Campfire Café outdoor kitchen. The SportTrek line offers lengths ranging from 26- to 35-feet and are equipped with an enclosed underbelly and champagne colored front and back wall. The trailer can be towed by today’s small crossovers, SUVs and light duty trucks.
