Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) announces today Forest River has adopted the Planet four-direction rotating table mechanism for all Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Type C motorhomes. The Planet table mechanism was developed by LCI Italy as part of the DaVinci Series line of movable and adjustable table mechanisms.
Andy Murray, LCI’s chief sales officer, says the innovative and versatile Planet table mechanism offers flexibility and space optimization, allowing owners to slide the tabletop in four different directions. The Planet mechanism, Murray says, also allows the tabletop to be rotated a full 360 degrees, providing space on demand for owners.
Made of aluminum and composite materials, Murray says, the Planet table mechanism can be adjusted to suit the needs of 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter owners.
LCI Italy developed the DaVinci Series, inspired by famed Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci, to provide flexibility and space on-demand options for smaller spaces. DaVinci Series table mechanisms allow easy tabletop adjustments to maximize interior living space and to provide comfortable dinette options with sliding and rotating functionality, Murray says.
“We’re proud to debut the DaVinci Series table mechanism within the U.S. market,” Murray says. “Our European counterparts are constantly developing innovative new products that we know U.S. consumers will also enjoy.”
In addition to the DaVinci Series of table mechanism, LCI has introduced several other European-made and European-inspired RV products to the U.S. market, including entry door handles, entry doors and furniture.
“At Forest River, we believe providing the latest and most innovative concepts to our consumers is of the utmost importance,” Kary Katzenberg, product manager of all Class C motorhomes at Forest River, says. “We know our customers will love the flexibility and contemporary styling of the Planet table mechanism and we’re excited to debut it on our 2020 MBS units.”
