California-based RKS Off-Road hit a “major milestone” earlier this month with the company’s first Purpose Trailer customer delivery.
Founded in 2019 by partners Elisabeth Gritsch and Travis King, the business stated it launched after identifying a gap in the RV and trailer industry.
“The delivery of our first customer vehicle represents a landmark moment for the entire RKS team,” Gritsch said. “We have been working tirelessly over the past few months to refine every element of the Purpose Trailer and we’re so excited to finally see it in the hands of our first adventurous owner.”
Priced from $49,900, the Purpose Trailer provides an “unexpectedly high” specification level. The full outdoor kitchen includes 20k BTU dual burner portable stove, a stainless-steel sink, furnace water heater and built-in storage. The separate bathroom includes a full shower, ceramic toilet and wall mirror. The bedroom offers a modular configuration which can be set for two singles or one queen.
The Purpose Trailer also offers best-in-class 70-gallon capacity water and LP tanks, RKS stated.
The couple who took the first delivery stated they were “thrilled.” The couple said they have two small children and were searching for a unique product that would fit the family as it grew.
RKS is planning more customer deliveries in this year’s second quarter, the company stated, via its three dealers in Las Vegas, Colorado and Austin.
