156806435150168.jpgKeystone RV announces nearly every model in the Keystone, Dutchmen and CrossRoads lineups will come standard with either power stabilizers or electric leveling as part of the company’s initiative to “make camping easier, safer and more convenient.”

Exclusions include single-axle and non-slide travel trailer models, Keystone says.

“With system-wide innovations like color-coded wiring, KeyTV, LTE/WiFi prep and now, power stabilizers and leveling standard," Keystone RV Company President Jeff Runels says. "Keystone is focused on delivering practical innovation for all Keystone owners.”

Power stabilizers added to the affordably priced Hideout, Springdale, Passport and Bullet lines “is a game changer for dealers and owners,” Brand General Manager John Miller says. “No one wants to spend the first part of their trip bending and cranking.”

On CrossRoads models, the package is called Camp Easy while on Dutchmen models, it is referred to as part of the Power Plus package.

The power stabilizer and electric leveler enhancements will be on display at Thor Industries’ Dealer Open House, September 23-26.
