Aliner Introduces Ascape Travel Trailer

Tue Nov 22, 2016

147983549716924.jpgMT. PLEASANT, Pennsylvania - Aliner is introducing the Ascape, designed to be the lightest, easiest towing, fully-equipped travel trailer in its class.

The Ascape measures at a manageable 13 feet long, is aerodynamic to slip behind smaller vehicles, and weighs just more than 1,350 pounds, making the home on the road so simple, yet so luxurious, according to a press release.

The Ascape comes packed with standard features and is built with the lightest materials available. The walls are constructed with an .030 exterior aluminum skin and high-tech Azdel composites. This low-profile trailer features a unique drop-floor design that provides just more than six feet of interior headroom, while keeping the exterior height just less than seven and a half feet. The Ascape was designed with a rear-entry door that allows for a smart, convenient floorplan that couldn't be achieved with a side-entry.

"The Ascape is a progressive product that we are sure will not disappoint," Aliner President Brett Randall says. "For such a small trailer, the space inside is very welcoming. Working together with the team members at Aliner, we feel this will truly please that market that has been waiting for a lighter concept."

The graphics of the Ascape are unique and modern. Bright bold green waves grace the sleek silver background making this trailer a showstopper.

"The design on this innovative trailer is very unique," says Mark Tait, president at RRG, Llc., who collaborated with Aliner on the design concept. "We would like to thank all the crew at Aliner for working hard to bring this special RV into existence."

The Ascape will debut at booth 2230 at the RVIA Louisville show.
