Lance 1475 Trailer

Lance has added a new addition to its ultra-light travel trailer line – the 1475. This 14-foot non-slide model brings Lance’s total number of travel trailer floorplans to nine, ranging in size from 14 feet to 22 feet.

“Downsizing, simplification, micro-homes, it’s all the rage these days,” says Bob Rogers, Lance’s director of marketing. “The genesis for this model came directly from our customers and is a result of what they wanted to see in a sub 15-foot floor plan. The 1475 is ultra-light weight with 100% Lance DNA and yes, it doesn’t have a fixed dinette. Customers tell us they like to eat outside or while sitting in their lounge chairs and would rather have two comfortable chairs and a nice size dry bath, so that’s what we designed!” Read Full Story →
