Building on the initial success of the Northern Spirit Ultra-Light RV Care Approved travel trailers, Coachmen RV and RV Care ecently signed an extension to their partnership agreement.

“We were very pleased with the commitment and support the RV Care Network showed when we launched Northern Spirit trailers less than a year ago,” said Bob Dumm, general manager for Coachmen RV. “Working with over 30 top-quality dealers and RV Care’s management team allowed us to make a strong impact in our first year, setting the foundation for even more success in year two and beyond.”

At the recent Elkhart RV Open House Week, Coachmen introduced two new Northern Spirit floorplans, the 1943 RB and the 3373 RL.

The 3373 RL features the Pet Center Plus, a storage area for pet supplies. 

“National advertising, combined with creative new marketing and brand development, will continue to grow this exciting new brand through the RV Care Network across Canada,” Dumm said.
