RVIA Economic Impact Study

The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association commissioned an Economic Impact Study on the RV industry, released on June 7, 2016. The study found that the RV industry contributes about $49.7 billion in economic output or 0.28 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. Through its production and distribution linkages, the industry impacts firms in 426 of the 440 sectors of the United States economy.

Nationwide, the industry is responsible for 216,170 jobs, both directly and inderectly, creating an economic impact of $37.5 billion. The full study results, along with each individual state and congressional district's economic impact is available on the website by clicking here .

Baja Designs Debuts S2 Pro and S2 Sport Auxiliary Lighting Systems

Fri Mar 31, 2017

149098780060982.jpgSAN MARCOS, California - Baja Designs has debuted its S2 Pro and the new S2 Sport auxiliary lighting system, which is designed to provide excellent lighting coverage and clear brightness from an ultra-compact, lightweight package.

Starting with an ultra-compact 3-inch by 2-inch housing, weighing 8 ounces, Baja Designs' has developed the S2 auxiliary lights into a solution to improve vehicle lighting in difficult locations where standard lights would never fit. An added benefit is the low amperage draw, which will not compromise a vehicle's electrical system. The line is highly versatile since the lights can be mounted in grilles, on bumpers or roof racks or used as back-up lights.

The company's new S2 Sport requires a low power draw - 12 watts and 0.9 amperes to produce a respectable 1,130 lumens of brightness from such a low electrical draw. This makes the S2 Sport ideal for applications which have limited electrical output, such as motorcycles, UTV and ATV applications. It is Baja Designs entry level product, featuring an attractive price point.

The S2 Pro line is the higher-powered version, delivering 2,450 lumens of brightness, while drawing only 20 watts of power at 1.6 amperes.

Baja Designs' S2 line features four distinct lighting patterns - Driving/Combo, Spot, Wide Cornering and a Work/Scene light. The Driving/Combo light combines a Wide Cornering (44 degrees) pattern and a Spot (6 degrees) pattern to deliver a blend of light for near-field and mid-field distance needs. The Spot light uses two 6 degrees spread patterns for improved long range visibility. The Wide Cornering model uses a pair of LEDs with a 44-degree flattened horizontal beam which delivers a pattern for cornering, dust and/or fog conditions, providing the ultimate in driving safety and security. The Work/Scene light is designed to illuminate a work or scene area, using a 60-degree spread circular pattern to cover a 40-foot diameter, however, it is not intended for driving use.

Available in black or white powder coated versions with bracket or flush mount options, all are available individually or in paired sets. All are available with optional amber colored lenses and the Spot model is also available with optional red, green or blue color lenses.

Like all Baja Designs lights, the S2 line uses the highest quality, cutting edge LEDs which produce a 5,000 Daylight natural light - color temperature - which replicates the sun at Noon with zero cloud coverage. The LEDs and Baja Designs circuit board design deliver a 49,930-hour life span.

All of the S2 lights use high-impact, replaceable hard-coated polycarbonate lenses and Baja Design's exclusive MoistureBlock Technology. This technology features O-ring sealed housings and proprietary cord design, making the lights submersible, waterproof and dust-resistant.

All of the S2 lights meets and exceeds several stringent testing standards - MIL-STD810G (Mil-Spec Testing), IP69K (waterproof up to 9 feet, pressure washable) and is IK10 Compliant (Mechanical Impact Testing). The CopperDrive circuity features built-in overvoltage protection, making Baja Design lights one of the only LED lights to be driven at 100 percent capacity. The uService Replaceable Lenses and Optics provide a light which is totally serviceable.

Baja Designs offers a 30-Day, Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee and a Limited Lifetime Warranty on all products.
