Renegade RV to Show Verona Models at Hershey Show

Mon Sep 12, 2016

Bristol, Indiana - Bristol motorhome manufacturer Renegade RV, will be showing several firsts at America's Largest RV Show at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania Sept. 12-18.

It’s the first retail show since the introduction of Renegade's popular Verona Super C motorhome, so each model and every interior and exterior decor will be on display, according to a Renegade Director of Sales Kevin Erdman.

It also is the first retail show for the new 36VSB model, which offers the same chassis, engine and features as its larger siblings, but in a more compact exterior footprint.

“In addition, we will have both of our upscale Verona LE models on display," Erdman says. "Both the Verona and Verona LE have found significant traction in the marketplace, offering solid hardwood cabinets and high quality finishes at popular diesel motorhome price points, making the fun-to-drive Freightliner M2 based product a great alternative to Class A motorhomes.”

Renegade RV has posted nearly 60 percent volume growth during the first seven months of 2016 compared to the previous year. Dealers who stop by the display in space A11 at the Giant Center in Hershey can experience these products.
