Whether it’s a travel trailer, fifth wheel, or any other RV, you more than likely will want something with a low cost, and something that provides you with all of the features that you desire in an RV (with an ample amount of space too!). Fifth wheels give you the best of both worlds. If you have been looking for something like this that has a sleeping space for two, we’ve made this list of the best fifth wheels under 50,000 US dollars for two people.
What puts an RV on the list: The list of the fifth wheel campers available in the RV industry right now is certainly a long one, even if you consider those under $50,000. We found the best of the best by selecting the ones that have a recently-released model of the best features, and show a good mix of user and critic reviews!
The Top 5 Best Fifth Wheels Under $50,000 for 2 People:
Why we recommend the Coachmen RV Chaparral fifth wheel RV: Coachmen’s Chaparral is also featured in one of our older posts, and for good reason. Its 13 floorplans cover a wide range of features and layouts, with ones that are under 50,000 bucks and are suitable for 2 people as well! Furthermore, when you consider that the lowest length that a particular floorplan provides is 33 feet, it’s clear that Coachmen intended to make these fifth wheel as spacious as they come!
While we prefer the Chaparral 298RLS and the Chaparral 370FL, you’ll find plenty of other floorplans with unique layouts of their own. What’s common among them, however, is the fact that they provide some top-notch features ranging from electric awning, 13,500 BTU air conditioner, sonal panel prep and radial tires to night shades, exterior speakers and electric front jacks. You can also upgrade to better features such as a higher BTU air conditioner, 50-inch LED TV among many others!
13 different floor plans available
Laminated and aluminum framed floor and sidewalls with azdel
Why we recommend Forest River Cedar Creek Silverback fifth wheel RV: While the caption sounds like an oxymoron, it’s not! There are 8 different floorplans that the Forest River Cedar Creek provides–each with their own unique layout–but all of them have the same amazing set of features and expansions that we’ve come to expect from Forest River RVs so far. Only one features a bunkhouse, so you have 7 different layouts to choose from if you’re specifically looking for ones that can house two people.
While we recommend the Cedar Creek Silverback 29IK and the Cedar Creek Silverback 35IK, all of them sport important elements of a good RV, such as a ducted air conditioner coupled with LED lighting for the ambiance. Furthermore, if you wish to expand the capabilities of the RV, you can also add upgrades and expansions, including a 13,500 BTU AC and a larger refrigerator. All around, the Forest River Cedar Creek Silverback is one of the best fifth wheels under 50,000 USD!
8 different floor plans available
Create-A-Breeze Fantastic Fan with rain sensor in kitchen
Bathroom breeze power fan with wall switch in the bathroom
Stainless steel undermounted sinks
Friction hinge entry door with “Soft Top” storm door

#3. Crossroads Cruiser Fifth Wheel RV
The ‘Bang For Your Buck’ Fifth Wheel
Why we recommend the Crossroads Cruiser fifth wheel RV: If you are hesitant on the layout of the RV you’re looking for and just want a myriad of options to be able to find the best for you, we suggest you look no further than the Cruiser fifth wheel by Crossroads RV. It features 14 different floorplans, of which 9 floorplans are without a bunkhouse. While we liked the Cruiser CF315RL and the Cruiser CF333RL in particular, there are still quite a few other options (not to mention that they all have the same awesome feature set).
The Crossroads Cruiser does not disappoint in any department–whether it’s safety, durability, convenience or upgradability. A few examples of these features include high gloss laminated sidewalls, detectors for smoke, LP and carbon monoxide, interior LED lighting and options to add a 35,000 BTU furnace or upgrade the existing air conditioner to a 15,000 BTU one. It’s clear that the Cruiser is not only among the best fifth wheels under 50,000 dollars, but also contains some of the best features!
Why we recommend the Palomino Puma fifth wheel RV: Palomino is another name that comes to mind when you think about quality fifth wheels, with the Puma is one of their best selling brands, and exceptionally so. With GVWR ranging from 6754 to 8732 pounds, it’s lightweight and towable while still keeping a footprint that ranges from 27 to 34 feet, a great size for two! We particularly liked the Puma 253FBS and the Puma 257RESS floorplans.
As far as features go, the Puma had quite a lot to show off, considering the Evergreen high density foam mattress on the beds and the powder coated frame. If you’re aiming on keeping this RV for a long time, it has upgrade options that will help you expand its capabilites such as a bigger TV or a tri-fold sofa. All in all, we’re not surprised that the Puma is one of the best selling fifth wheels out there!
7 different floor plans
35,000 BTU furnace
Nickel finish, single control high-rise kitchen faucet
Why we recommend Keystone Cougar Fifth Wheel RV: Keystone RV is another one of those manufacturers who have almost always managed to get one of their brands on our top 5 lists, and this fifth wheel is no exception. The Keystone Cougar is an amazing RV, featuring 25 different floorplans and a footprint ranging from 35 to 40 feet, which is very spacious.
While we specifically liked the Cougar 310RLS and the Cougar 311RES. We liked that the Keystone has a fireplace with a remote, a memory foam mattress, and a 15,000 BTU air conditioner. It’s solidly constructed as well, having a 5-sided aluma frame construction and a one-piece super flex roof rounded up with a fully enclosed and heated underbelly. Bottom line, you won’t regret purchasing the Cougar fifth wheel RV!
5 different floor plans available
Stainless steel deep oversized kitchen basin with sink cover
Whether you are preferring to go for an RV from the top 5 or our honorable mentions, be sure to select the one that doesn’t have a bunkhouse floorplan to ensure that you get the maximum space possible even if the RV doesn’t practically have a large footprint!
While there are quite a few best awards for different kinds of RVs out there, there are many expansions, add-ons and upgrades to RVs that are often overlooked. Today, we’ll be discussing the best ones released in 2018 that are quite nifty to have or unique, at the very least. We found out about these at the 2017 RVIA show in Louiseville, so be sure to check out our entire coverage of all the new upcoming RV brands introduced at the event as well!
1. V-Nose Cap
Apart from making your Forest River XLR Nitro model RVs look like an arrow, the V-nose cap’s true purpose is to improve your fuel efficiency. Now, your RV will travel more smoothly without shaking against the wind, and will improve the way you turn.
Forest River found an innovative way to add storage in their Flagstaff travel trailers by making the seats of the dining table flip up. This will give you room to store card games, or other things that you’ll desperately want on your vacations.
This is a great feature we love! The window/day bench in the bedroom adds extra space to take a nap. You’ll enjoy being able to relax and cozy up with a blanket when it’s cold outside. The fireplace in this Jayco Pinnacle travel trailer adds to the warm aesthetic as well.
The walk-in closet is an added bonus in some of the Grand Design RV units. It gives you a dedicated space to keep your clothing items organized and wrinkle-free, while also giving you a bit of privacy to change. It’s perfect for anyone going on long road trips, or anyone who just loves to pack a lot of clothes!
The system encompasses an integrated auto leveling system which levels your unit to keep it from moving it back and forth or shaking too much. This is a great feature, especially if you are someone who does not like their RV to be shaky in any way!
This is simply an innovative expansion for people who prefer the outdoors to staying in.
The RV featured here is the Taxa Outdoors Tigermoth Luna Travel Trailer.
13. Retro Decor
This option gives your RV the vintage look without compromising on any amenities. With such an awesome theme, you’ll always have the greatest times vacationing in this retro RV. (Gulf Stream Vintage Cruiser 19ERD)
CrossRoads has added a small office space in the unit with glass paneling around it to make it look like you’re sitting in your office at home! You’ll be able to work quietly in there and keep an eye on your kids if they are stuck inside because of the rain. (CrossRoads Executive Suite 3881ES).
Need extra seating space? This L-shaped sofa has got you covered! (Coachmen Mirada 32SS). Not only is it perfect for when you invite friends along, but gives you a cozy place to sit back and relax with a book.
Sit back and relax while you enjoy a heated massage, thanks to the awesome theatre seating! You’ll love being able to sit back and relax in this after an exhausting day of camping adventures (Forest River Sabre 36BHQ)!
Whether it’s a motorhome or a travel trailer, there are certain rules and restrictions on RVs at campgrounds across the United States. However, for the most part you can park your RV at any campground if it’s under 27 feet in length. If you are looking for a motorhome, check out Top 5 Best Motorhomes for Campgrounds. But if it’s a travel trailer you’re looking for, here’s our list of the top 5 best travel trailers for campgrounds!
Mark Koep from Campgroundviews.com adds: “The single most important camping decision you will make is the type of RV you purchase. That decision will impact all of your options for camping as long as you use the vehicle. When comparing and considering the length and size of the RV you will find a range of options from sleeping on the ground with a sheet all the way up to 45′ luxury travel trailers. There is no “right size” for all types of camping. Instead a compromise decision needs to be made between what you want for comfort versus what you need to fit at certain sites. As a general rule of thumb units under 35′ in length will be able to find a site in RV accessible National Park campgrounds. The same holds true for Forest Service campgrounds. At the same time the shorter the unit the better off you will be for these aging campgrounds (most were built in the 60’s). Under 30′ you will have more options and under 27′ a few additional choices.”
What puts an RV on the list: There are thousands of travel trailers to choose from, and filtering it down to ones that are under 27 feet doesn’t really narrow the options. However, that does mean that we’ve got lots of campers to put to the test. We have chosen from the newest travel trailers that have appreciable user/critic reviews.
Why we recommend the Livin Lite Camplite Travel Trailer: The brand name seems to reflect the traits of the Camplite travel trailer, as Livin Lite has kept the GVWR of this RV well under 5,000, no matter which floorplan you choose. Furthermore, all 8 floorplans are under 27 feet, giving you a lot of choices and layouts, as well as choices in sleeping capacities. We recommend checking out the Camplite CL21BHS and the Camplite CL16BHB.
No matter which one you pick, you’ll find an impressive set of features ranging from the 6 cubic feet refrigerator to the high power 12-volt vortex fan. If you’re thinking of upgrading it in the future, the Camplite is upgrade-able as well, with options for expansions. These upgrades include power awning with LED lighting, and a few other features. Long story short? The Livin Lite Camplite is one of the best travel trailers for campgrounds out there!
8 different floor plans available

#2. Dutchmen Aerolite Travel Trailer
The ‘Small Family’ Travel Trailer!
Why we recommend Dutchmen Aerolite Travel Trailer: Dutchmen offers floorplans that are under 5,000 lbs, with a few going slightly above that. However, only 2 of the floorplans are under 27 feet: the Aerolite 2133RB and the Aerolite 2110RBSL. Both of these can house 3 people, making this a very spacious and luxurious camper.
Regardless of whether you choose the 2133RB or the 2110RBSL, you’ll find the friction hinge entry door a thoughtful addition, along with the easy lube axles. If you’re buying this without the intention of changing it for a few years, you can still always upgrade a few features from time to time, adding a 15,000 BTU air conditioner instead of the proprietary installed 13,500 BTU AC. The lack of floorplans didn’t prevent the Dutchmen Aerolite from being an amazing travel trailer for campgrounds!
16 different floor plans available
Stabilitrack suspension system
Glass top three burner range with 21″ oven
Solid surface kitchen countertops
Power awning with LED lights
Dark-tinted safety glass windows
#3. Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf Travel Trailer
Stylish Outside, Luxurious Inside
Why we recommend the Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf Travel Trailer: If we could describe the Cherokee Grey Wolf by Forest River in one word, it would be stylish. But that doesn’t mean that they’ve cut corners on any other department. You’ll find tons of amazing features throughout its 25 floorplans, 6 of which are under 27 feet, such as the Cherokee Grey Wolf 20RDSE and the Cherokee Grey Wolf 17BH.
In addition to those features, we especially liked the 40-inch slide out dinette (only available on selected floorplans), and the stereo speakers on the outside. If you feel the need to add a bit more ‘oomph’ to the Grey Wolf, then there are options to add a couple of extra features: stabilizing jacks, a flat screen TV set, mini outside kitchen, an outdoor bar and grill, 2 cozy recliners, and many more like this!
25 different floor plans available
Full extension roller glide drawers
One piece slide out side walls
Large, mirrored, medicine cabinet
Awning drip rail and down spouts
Aerodynamic radius front profile
#4. Keystone Bullet Travel Trailer
Versatility In a Small Package!
Why we recommend the Keystone Bullet Travel Trailer: Keystone is known for making some of the best quality travel trailers. This is easily proven by how many times we see a Keystone travel trailer on our top 5 lists. The Bullet is another one of its winners that boasts 30 floorplans, 6 of which are suitable for campgrounds. We particularly found the Bullet 220 RBI and the Bullet 204RBSWE interesting.
The Bullet has covered almost every feature you would need and more. The master bedroom features two 110V outlets to charge your devices, mirrored wardrobes, an upgraded foam mattress, and much more. You’ll probably notice the LED lighting and the residential style furniture when you first step into the trailer.
Safety is always a top priority, and you’ll find that the Bullet has a CO detector, a smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, electric brakes, safety chains, a fire escape, and even GFI receptacles. In a nutshell, you’ll find the Bullet to have more than adequate amenities on your next camping trip!
30 different floor plans
Blow molded seamless holding tanks
Aluminum triple step entry
Tough guard painted skirt metal
Interior access, manual override for the slide rooms
Cable TV hook-up with antenna and signal booster
#5. Dutchmen Aspen Trail Travel Trailer
36 Ways To Show A Quality Travel Trailer
Why we recommend Dutchmen aspen trail travel trailer: This is the second travel trailer by Dutchmen that made it to the list, and for a good reason. Among 36 (that’s right, 36!) layouts to choose from, it has 7 floorplans that are under 27 feet. We specifically recommend the Aspen Trail 2340BHS and the Aspen Trail 1900RBWE. The sleeping capacity of those 7 are 3 to 4 people with GVWR, most of them under 5,000 lbs, making it easily towable for even an SUV.
The Aspen Trail features both of the popular options when it comes to upgrades: packages that add a myriad of additional features, or standalone amenities that you’ll want to add sporadically through the years. It originally has a decent feature set too, from the construction point of view (such as the front diamond plate protection), to the convenience point of view (such as the 13,500 BTU air conditioner)!
36 different floor plans available
82-inch interior height, 6 feet ceiling in slide room
Range hood with light and exhaust fan
Radius overhead cabinets
Enormous pass thru storage compartment
12-volt 55 amp converter

From now on, bid adieu to endless research about the RV laws in each state. These travel trailers for campgrounds are all under 27 feet, and are suitable for camping and parking anywhere around the States!
Nate: We are here to show you the brand new Holiday Rambler Reno.
Dave: Hi, I’m Dave Eash, I’m a Regional Sales Manager with Holiday Rambler.
Nate: Dave, so tell me what makes this beautiful Reno by Holiday Rambler, what makes this brand unique from the other brands that you guys have?
Dave: Well, one of the things is we have options for the exterior colors. This is the gray, obviously. We have a white and we have a black. And that really helps to give us options depending on the buyer and what your preferences are, and whether you’re a younger buyer or someone that’s more of an experienced RVer, you have those options. And it gives a different look and feel.
We also did some pretty unique designs with the front cap that helps set it apart from the rest of our product line.
Nate: Who is this aimed at? Who do you think is going to love this most?
Dave: The people that are looking for more of that weekend experience and maybe they don’t have the time or the resources for the regular larger conventional motorhome, but still want that motorhome experience. Families weekend tailgating type events, that’s really the target that we went for. And the younger buyer, some of the targets that we went for with this product.
Nate: Compared to the other RVs that are out there, these Millennials and these younger shoppers that are in the market for this type of RV, where does this one really stand out?
Dave: Well, I think the … what I mentioned earlier about the different look and the different options on color, the redesigned, the front cap, and that overall appearance is one of the areas where it really stands out. It doesn’t look like all the others. It has different feel, a different vibe to it, and then I think that’s one of the areas that it stands out. And then we also have some unique features that add to that as well.
Nate: What are your top three favorite?
Dave: Well, one of the things is you look behind us here, this is a large exterior entertainment center, normally in an RV if you have an exterior entertainment center, the TV is going to be a lot smaller, so you have a large TV. Perfect for those tailgating events. That’s one thing I like.
The other thing, if you’ll notice over there we have the LP bottles where they’re removable, you don’t have the fixed tank so you can easily swap in LP bottles in and out. Those are a couple of exterior things that are great.
The number three feature would be the price point. I mentioned and alluded to that earlier. In that hundred and five to hundred ten thousand MSRP, price point, is where this product falls. And so obviously is a very attractive price point that goes along with the different look and the feel on the features.
Nate: Thanks, Dave.
Dave: All right, thank you.
Nate: If you guys want to check out the Reno by Holiday Rambler you can head over to rvingplanet.com.
All right, Dave, so we’re looking at this beautiful Prodigy by Holiday Rambler. And compared to all the other brands that Holiday Rambler makes, where does this one stand out and where is it unique?
Dave: Well, it’s unique in the fact that it’s built on the diesel Mercedes engine with the Sprinter chassis. And so it’s a shorter unit. It’s 24 foot, we have a couple of different floor plans in that 24 foot range. And the advantage of that is that customer that’s looking for a really high quality unit, but they want something shorter, easier to drive, easier to maneuver in and out of park, and someone that wants a lot of the conveniences of the RV and the amenities and the features of a larger motorhome unit, but with the smaller platform.
Nate: So who would you say is the perfect person? You guys you’re listening to your customers and you’re kind of building the units based on that. Who’s the perfect buyer? Who would enjoy this the most?
Dave: Well, typically it’s going to be a couple. It’s not people with kids because of the space will probably not be a real player for this product. So it’s maybe either that younger couple without kids or it’s that older retired couple who wants to get out and see a lot of country, have the gas mileage and the advantages of that Mercedes engine, and yet be able to enjoy the lifestyle.
Nate: So these couples that are looking for RVs like this where would you say … in their shopping process, where would you say what would make this one really stand out?
Dave: Well, some of the features on this one that I really love, this particular one has the option for the full body paint. So it really gives it a great finish and a feel to it. You also see right behind you here one of the features is a tankless water heater, that’s a really high-quality tankless water heater. Again space is a premium in a smaller unit, and we’re able to give them great features and yet not eat up a lot of space.
You’ll also notice here exterior entertainment center. This is an entertainment center that is just as good as the ones we have on the bigger units. And so it gives that convenience as well. Legless awning, so you can see where the awning. It doesn’t have any of the legs coming down the side wall and are just a couple of features that that this product has time.
Nate: All right, thanks, Dave. If you guys want to check out the Prodigy by Holiday Rambler you can head over to rvingplanet.com.
Nate: And we are here to show you the Cabin Cruiser by Gulfstream.
Greg: Hello, my name is Greg Danielson I’m the representative for Gulfstream Coach.
Nate: Hi, Greg. So we are inside the Cabin Cruiser by Gulfstream, what makes this brand special?
Greg: Well, the concept is really quite interesting. As you can kind of tell we’re using a knotty pine interior, we’ve got a kind of an old rock fireplace. And basically you get kind of a feel like you’re in a cabin.
Nate: Hence Cabin Cruiser.
Greg: Hence, Cabin Cruiser, correct. In addition you also get some higher-end amenities and features such as vacuum bonded fiberglass sidewalls, so you’re just getting kind of a lighter, newer unit but also having this kind of old cabin feel.
Nate: Yes, they can take the cabin anywhere of which I haven’t even heard of being able to be done before until right now.
Greg: It’s a cabin on wheels.
Nate: Yeah, so who would have the most fun with this Cabin Cruiser?
Greg: Well, I think with the Cabin Cruiser what’s kind of fun about it it’s a little bit nostalgic for families, if they’re really trying to create that feeling of being out camping, and having a cabin where they can come and then enjoy that.
Nate: Maybe even they have like a whole another level of camping that the other RVers don’t have because they have like a cabin.
Greg: Exactly. I mean, you’re really getting into that camping feel.
Nate: What are your top three favorite features about this?
Greg: Well, I think with the Cabin Cruiser I really enjoy the knotty pine look. I also what’s kind of new for Louisville is they’re doing more of the plaid on the balances and on the wraparound dinette, and then you know you also get some of the cool things like an LED accent light. Two giant double over double bunks, so yeah, it’s very accommodating for a family. And again, you just get that camping feel when you’re inside the Cabin Cruiser.
Nate: All right, thanks, Greg. If you guys want to check out the Cabin Cruiser by Gulfstream you can go to our rvingplanet.com.
Nate: So Keith, we are looking at the Fleetwood Pulse. Tell me what makes it unique and special?
Keith: What makes it unique and special is it’s on a Mercedes-Benz chassis, it gets amazing fuel economy, and it drives like a high-end Mercedes SUV.
Nate: Yeah, you get the comfort and the quality with the chassis, right?
Keith: Yep, and the benefits of being a small 3.0 six-cylinder diesel engine.
Nate: So who would love this Plus the most?
Keith: Oh, boy, it’s such a large cross-section of who likes it. You’ve got folks who are running away from the snow in Upstate New York, and so driving to their place in Florida, and they have their house on wheels. So if they don’t get from point A to point B they can stop, pull over spend the night, and they’ve got their own place to live.
Also soccer moms. I have a lot of customers who purchased this over the years where they buy it as a second vehicle, because it’s small enough, it’s not like a 40-foot diesel pusher so they can drive this to the convenience store, they can drive this to the soccer field, they can drive this where they need to go.
Nate: The people that are looking for this type of RV, where does this one really stand out?
Keith: Ride and handling, small size, being able to do anything you need to do in that smaller footprint. The interior styling, very European, it’s a beautiful motor home. Exterior full body paint as well as the cab over for additional sleeping or storage.
Nate: What would you say on the top of three main features that these people will love?
Keith: Diesel power plant, better fuel economy, good look of this motorhome, the European styling and the floor plan. This particular one has got a full wall slide so it really … even though it’s a 25 foot box it really opens it up.
Nate: Awesome. Thanks, Keith. And for all of you that are watching you can go on to rvingplanet.com and check out the Fleetwood Pulse.
Nate: And we are here to show you the new Capri by Gulf Stream.
Greg: Hello. My name is Greg Danielson. I’m actually the rep for the mountain time region for Gulf Stream Coach.
Nate: Greg, so we’re looking at this Capri here. Describe to me how this brand is unique.
Greg: Basically we’re taking the platform of a proven unit called the mirror light as a brand that we carry at Gulf Stream, and taking that platform, redesign it with that retro feel by using proven floor plans and platform, and just kind of spicing it up with the retro look and feel.
Nate: So people like the Capri is very focused on the retro look and people like those looks. Is the inside retro as well?
Greg: Absolutely. So not only did we do the exterior to kind of fit that retro feel, we also redesigned the interior. So it’s kind of a retro package. So not only you’re getting some upgrades on the outside, you’re also getting some upgrades in the inside. So the vinyl has a little bit more of that throwback look in addition to some of the valances and whatnot inside.
Nate: Okay, and if you could describe me because there’s so many RVs and not every RV is for everybody, who would most benefit from this?
Greg: I think that as far as the retro look a lot of the baby boomers, but some of the Millennials they kind of like that throwback look. And right now in the RV industry those are two big segments that we’re trying to capitalize on.
Nate: So for the other companies that are … because there’s other ones that are trying to make retro, how is this one different than those?
Greg: Well, at Gulf Stream with our Mara Lite we’re really kind of price conscious on those particular floor plans, and so we’re also trying to make sure that the Capri not only has that retro look but it’s going to be a little bit more affordable.
Nate: I know you love the Capri. I love Capri. What are your top three favorite features?
Greg: Absolutely. Well, what’s nice about the Capri, again, we do that retro package. So some upgrades for example you’re going to see some of this exterior metal look here. In addition upgraded aluminum wheels. And then inside you’re going to have kind of that sea green interior on the valances, the bedspread, and then also the countertop. It’s a little funky, it’s got that retro look. And I really like. It’s kind of got some boomerang graphics on it.
Nate: And guys if you want to check out the Capri by Gulf Stream you can head on over to rvingplanet.com.
Nate: And we’re here to show you the new Luna by inTech.
All right, Rich. So I see this beautiful Luna right here with this awesome window. What makes the Luna, this new brand unique?
Rich: Well, as you pointed out the front glass windshield, tempered glass windshield is the biggest thing. But what we really like about this is it gives you that million-dollar view. You unhook from your tow vehicle and you aim this at the lake and you get that million-dollar view that you normally got to buy a big home to do.
And it’s a it’s a small camper no question about it, but what’s beautiful about it is it doesn’t feel small inside at all. It’s really got some room. Four people can sit in this very comfortably, two people up to 6’5″ can sleep in it, 40-inch television inside. It’s got a standard RV air conditioner with a heat pump. So it’s really built at a level above what most of the small campers are that you’re going to find out there.
Nate: Kind of describe who would enjoy this RV the most, like it’s maybe an active adventurer?
Rich: Not so much the active adventure, because you’re going to find that more with our flyer line. But this is going to be somebody who’s just looking for quick getaways, they’re going to be somebody that’s probably anywhere from forty to sixty years old. They probably have camped or RVed before but they’re looking for something that will fit in their garage if they want to, and they can get away quickly.
Nate: Where’s Lunas spot, what makes it super unique?
Rich: Well, it’s going to be the profile of it. When you look at traditional teardrop shows they’re going to curve down in the front. This isn’t. It’s curved and it’s still aerodynamic, but we’re utilizing this space a lot better than what most traditional teardrop trailers are.
It’s a little bit different in its construction too. It’s not a steel frame. This is an all aluminum cage frame, so it’s really built to last a lifetime. It’s lightweight and extremely durable.
Nate: What are your top three favorite features?
Rich: Well, starting at the back it’s going to be the kitchen, because it’s truly a gourmet style kitchen. It’s got a three burner LP stove, a stainless steel microwave, a really nice refrigerator 12 volt 120, deep freezes even if you’re sitting in the middle of Death Valley. The thing’s incredible and there’s lots of room to move around and cook.
Inside – the space, it’s just got more room than you can imagine. You’re not going to feel confined. When we first looked into this thing we started talking to people on teardrop trailers and they said they don’t like the confinement feeling. So we eliminated that. You can actually sit up in this thing and you’re comfortable.
And then third and we’ve talked about already it’s going to be this front end. It’s just amazing. It’s absolutely beautiful, very automotive.
Nate: Thanks for watching. If you want to check out the Luna by inTech you can head over to rvingplanet.com.
Nate: And we are here to show you the new Predator series Raptor by Keystone.
Kevin: I’m Kevin Warren. I’m the factory rep for the Raptor and Carbon toy haulers. I’ve been with Keystone RV on the Rap product for almost 14 years. So I’ve been representing toy haulers for a pretty long time.
Nate: What would you say that makes this brand unique?
Kevin: Okay, so number one – Raptor has been in business longer than any other toy hauler manufacturer. We now offer three different price points. You’ve got the Raptor which is the luxury line, you’ve got the Carbon which is the mid price point line, and now you have the Predator series which is the lower price point line.
The great part about that is you get the construction and quality in the Predator is the same as the Raptor without all of the extra cost involved. So to just have the simple functional things that you need in a toy hauler.
Nate: Describe the person that’s going to get the most out of this. Is it going to be like a family, like single people, is this for active adventurers?
Kevin: The great thing about toy haulers is it’s versatile for really kind of anything. It’s not necessarily for the person that’s got motorcycles or ATVs or side-by-sides. A family that’s got bicycles and barbecues and just a lot of stuff can get this in your beer selling to a family needing a bunkhouse all the way up to that guy that’s just got a lot of motorized equipment to come in here as well. So lots of versatility.
Nate: What sets the Predator series apart from other, just like a couple things that are big differentiators?
Kevin: So we’ve captured a lower price point that there’s not a lot of manufacturers in. But predator is pretty lean as far as who’s offering a good functional quality toy hauler with the important features, generator, fuel station, air conditioner in this price range. So we’re getting a lot lower and we’re opening ourselves up to people that maybe have less affordability or just simply want to be a little bit more simple in what they’re purchasing.
Nate: Okay, that make sense. So I know you love the Predator series, what are your top three, if you can only pick three, are your top three favorite features of it?
Kevin: Generator, freshwater tank, and I would say affordability. Really I mean that’s the big thing with Predator.
