ASA outfitted the fifth wheel with the company's latest innovations for model year 2018. The featured products include Jensen wall mount stereos with industry-first features, a full Klipsch sound system, Voyager wireless observation systems, app-controlled XKGLOW LED lighting, and the latest generation of the iN∙Command Control Systems.
