In addition to the Navigator model on display at the Nov. 28 - Dec. 1 show, Holiday Rambler will showcase five new floorplans and Fleetwood RV will debut six. Meanwhile, REV luxury brands American Coach and Monaco Coach will each roll to the show with a new floorplan. REV's display will be located at Booth 1401 in the South Wing.

Here's a quick glance at the RVIA lineup, starting with REV's newest model, the Navigator:


The Navigator fills a void in the Holiday Rambler lineup for a midline type A diesel motorhome on a 340 HP Cummins engine. Featuring a base-model $269,985 MSRP, REV RV Group first introduced the Navigator at September's Open House in Elkhart, Indiana. The Navigator launches with two new floorplans, the 38F and the 38K. The 38F floorplan features an L-shaped sofa, expansive galley, double vanities and full-length rear closet, while the 38K creates a home-like feel with an L-shaped sofa, U-shaped dinette and a one-and-a-half bath floorplan. Only the 38K will be on display at Louisville, but dealers can order both of these feature-packed floorplans during the event. Among the Navigator's many high-end standards, the Navigator includes Villa furniture, electric fireplace, LG electronics, a central vacuum and more.


In addition to the Navigator, Holiday Rambler will showcase five new floorplans that capture the brand's spirit — "This is Living." The Vesta 30F joins Holiday Rambler's recently relaunched type C motorhome lineup on the exclusive REV Control Ryde ride and handling system. This floorplan features a forward-facing L-shaped booth, perfect for road trips. The Vacationer adds the 35P to its lineup, perfect for couples, while the Vacationer and Vacationer XE will feature two new family-favorite bunk bed floorplans — the Vacationer XE 36D and the Vacationer XE 36F. And last but not least, the Holiday Rambler Endeavor introduces the 40D model with an L- shaped sofa, king-sized bed and two bathrooms.
