Wildcat Wide Body

The Wildcat division of Elkhart, Ind.,based Forest River, Inc., is expanding its product offering with the introduction of a wide body series of fifth wheels targeting the mid-priced market segment.

“The extra width of the WB Series is going to open up numerous floorplan possibilities,” according to Chris Saal, Wildcat Sales Manager. “Our very first model, the 30WB, is a perfect example of what we can do with these critical inches. Extra walk-around space beside the bed, an innovative bathroom layout, and a full sized bed lift system would not be possible in a conventional eight foot wide unit,” he said.

2016 Forest River Wildcat

Forest River has unveiled its completely redesigned Wildcat fifth wheel. Forest River says it is targeting the high-volume, mid-price fifth wheel segment with the new Wildcat.

“For over a decade, Wildcat has been one of Forest River’s flagship brands and it’s been wildly successful with retail customers. However, our dealers have consistently asked us to make the product lighter and more affordable so that we can be even more competitive,” says Chris Saal, Wildcat sales manager. “The new Wildcat accomplishes that goal! Now, more than ever, Wildcat has the right floorplans, the right look, and the right price to compete with any fifth wheel in its class.”

rime Time Crusader Fifth Wheel

Forest River‘s Prime Time brand saw a massive sales spike in February, 2013 – up 55% compared to February, 2012. So impressive were sales that Forest River says Prime Time was the second best selling combined travel trailer and fifth wheel in the United States that month.

“Prime Time is very thankful and appreciative of the tremendous support given to us by our dealers,” says Jeff Rank, president of Prime Time Manufacturing. “We made some bold commitments early on about who we wanted to be as a company and dealers embraced our innovative business model. Over the last three years, the strong partnerships we’ve forged are obviously now paying huge dividends for us and our dealers.”
