WiFiRanger shipped it’s 40,000th unit this week, after strong and significant demand from its large customer base.

With 30 percent of all WiFiRangers sold going direct to the aftermarket customer base, and the 70 percent being installed directly by industry leading coach and towable manufacturers, it is becoming clear that WiFiRanger is grabbing a good portion of the market, according to a press release.

towable and coach units in the RV industry,” WiFiRanger CEO and Product Visionary Kelly Hogan says. “The change in demographic of the RV market buyer is demanding experience, reputation and proven results with a WiFi and Cellular tethering system, and WiFiRanger pioneered that technology. We continue to innovate new features for not only the end customer, but for the OE’s themselves, simplifying their technology adoption and usability at the RV level.”

With 40,000 units operating in the field, WiFiRanger gathers better customer feedback
and suggestions, allowing them to innovate new and desired capabilities into the
product, and work with major manufacturers on implementing needed shop floor tools
for the implementation of technology rich towable and coach offerings.

Idaho manufacturing facility, and facilitated stocks of available inventory with its Elkhart based exclusive distributor MITO Corporation.

“We’ve built up a good supply of our most popular products in Elkhart with MITO so that
new OE customers can immediately take advantage of the excellent features and
reputation that including a WiFiRanger solution provides,” Hogan says.
