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!”

Venture Snoic Exterior

Venture RV will be displaying its new line of Sonic ultra-lightweight travel trailers September 16-19, 2013 at the fall open house in Elkhart, Ind.

“We will have 13 units in Elkhart, including our newest product innovation, the Sonic,” says Dave Boggs, director of marketing and sales. “The Sonic weighs between 2,950 to 4,500 pounds and range from 20-25 feet in length. The segment we are targeting is the minivan and small SUV market. The Sonic features many standards not found in the ultra-lightweight market like, interior LED lighting, convection microwave, Champaign color infused fiberglass exterior (including the roof) and CD/DVD/MP3 with Bluetooth. I’m sure it will be a big hit at the show.

Prime Time Milestone

Prime Time Manufacturing recently shipped its 10,000th travel trailer produced by its Tracer/LaCrosse manufacturing group.

To celebrate the occasion, company leaders were on hand to serve lunch and thank over 160 employees for their efforts.

“Division 48 was the very first Prime Time plant we started in 2009,” says Jeff Rank, president. “That small group of employees had a commitment to build innovative, high quality products that customers would love to own. Now, that very same commitment to quality has become the foundation with which all of our employees and all of our manufacturing facilities operate. Building 10,000 units is a great accomplishment, but Plant 48’s positive contributions to the culture of Prime Time will always be appreciated.”
