RV News: Winegard’s Rayzar to be Standard on Pleasureway Class B's

145954098118662.jpgWinegard’s Rayzar Automatic has been made standard equipment across Pleasureway Industries’ entire lineup of Class B Coaches.

Pleasureway’s Dean Rumpel says their decision was made while at a large show in Pomona Calif., where the Rayzar Automatic picked a remarkable 131 “free” TV stations.

That revelation came as no surprise to Dave and Robert Chiswell, who rep Winegard in Canada in addition to testing the company’s products out.

“Winegard has been a great company to represent in Canada,” says Robert, “and it has provided me with some really groundbreaking products to promote. The new Rayzar Automatic and T4 products top the list. I left Winnipeg and proceeded to drive east all the way to Quebec City. The test results on both products were well beyond expectations. The RoadTrip T4 held signal at least 90 percent of the time on Bell Satellite, cutting out only on the narrowest of single lane roads when there was obvious obstruction between us and the Satellite. It would then rapidly reacquire at its first ‘line of sight’ opportunity. The Rayzar Automatic performed equally well, picking up numerous stations wherever we happened to stop. I had as many as 19 stations on the first scan in Montreal and 14 at the airport in Toronto.”

He added, “It was also especially appealing in that it takes away the forever-annoying task of multiple channel scans every time you move your coach or your antenna. RVers can spend up to an hour channel scanning on their TVs while locating the different farms of TV stations in their newest location.”
