Fleetwood RV Displaying New Models at Hershey Show

Fri Sep 16, 2016

HERSHEY, Pennsylvania — Fleetwood RV is displaying new models and features to consumers at the 2016 PRVCA Show from Sept. 14-17 at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Fleetwood will display at Booth D2.

“We have some great new features and floorplans to show,” Vice President of Sales Lenny Razo says, about what consumers and dealers can expect to see at the Hershey Show. “We’ve listened to our customers and dealer networks and we think they will like what we are offering.”

Among the new models being displayed, show goers can see the recently debuted Fleetwood Discovery 39G, which has been well received and is available to consumers through Fleetwood dealerships.

“Consumers had a chance to view this floorplan at the recent FMCA Reunion in Springfield, Massachusetts,” Razo says. "The feedback was positive, and we think it will also be a hit at Hershey. The 2017 Discovery is loaded with upgraded interiors and high-end amenities. Consumers expect more than standard motorhome features, and so we’re delivering all of the amenities they expect — and more. And the best part is most of these features are standard.”

Also on display is the all-new Storm 36D. This family friendly floorplan offers all the amenities of home out on the road. The residential refrigerator, 12-by-24-inch tile flooring, 40-inch LED TV and Hide-a-Loft queen bed all offer home-like comfort. The Storm 36D also comes standard with inverter, 50-amp service, side-view cameras, auto gen start and more. One of the best features found on the 36D is the bunk bed area, which converts to seating or even a full-length wardrobe, according to a press release. The amenities aren’t limited to the interior. Outside, you will find an outdoor kitchenette with microwave and refrigerator, perfect for camping or days spent at the ballpark. The exterior entertainment center will keep guests entertained.

Fleetwood will have a full lineup of motorhomes, as well as a full offering from American Coach. Models include the Discovery LXE, the iconic Pace Arrow and the type A gas Bounder. Attendees also will have the opportunity to see the all new type C Fleetwood Jamboree. Fleetwood RV products and factory representatives will be available.
