nuCamp RV, known for its TAB and TAG teardrop trailers, launched several new models during the just completed RVX: The RV Experience in Salt Lake City.
In late 2015, nuCamp RV expanded operations of manufacturing teardrop trailers to include truck campers. This year marks the company’s foray into the full-sized travel trailer market. The company also expects to add retro fiberglass camper to its product line in 2020.
“Our success in the teardrop market has provided us the opportunity to bring our quality and innovation to new segments of the RV industry,” nuCamp RV CEO Scott Hubble says. “The TAB and TAG teardrop trailers will remain at the heart of our company but we are also excited about the future of our new product lines. We are committed to continuous improvement.”
The first recreational vehicle to launch will be the Cirrus 720 Truck Camper. The Cirrus 720 is a hard-sided, non-slide truck camper optimized for a three-quarter ton pickup truck. Production began in February 2019. The Cirrus 720 is the third model in the Cirrus line. The manufacturer says the unit marks a new direction in terms of weight and incorporates a modern aesthetic that has never been seen in a truck camper. The new Cirrus represents a blend of Ohio Amish craftsmanship fused with technology like the Alde and Froli systems.
“Dealers and customers have long expressed interest in more nuCamp RV products,” Hubble says. “Their feedback inspired us to develop the 720 Cirrus truck camper and also a full-sized travel trailer. We see a great opportunity to apply our high standards to this segment.”
In April, nuCamp RV will begin production of the Avia, a 28-foot full-sized travel trailer. nuCamp says the aluminum frame technology and Azdel sidewalls give the coach a graceful silhouette, and its interior is crafted with European-inspired components, modern cabinetry, and plush fabrics.
“RV popularity is at an all-time high” Hubble says. “nuCamp is focused on future development across all our product lines, while maintaining the high quality on which we built our reputation.”
