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.”

The Wildcat features an Ivory high gloss fiberglass exterior with a premium graphics package, slam latch baggage doors, and a two-tone painted front cap. Interior features include a 50” LED television, glazed cherry hardwood cabinet doors, and solid surface countertops. Upgrades for 2016 include R-52 insulation in the floor and roof, 80” queen mattress from Denver Mattress and two-piece washer/dryer prep on every floorplan.

“I’ve worked in this business for a long time, but this is the most excited I’ve ever been for a product launch,” says Saal. “We listened to our dealer feedback carefully and the new Wildcat is a direct result of that feedback. I’m confident dealers and customers alike will love this fifth wheel.”

The Wildcat can be viewed at the Forest River Open House venue slated for September 22-24, 2015 at the Dynamax complex located at 2745 Northland Drive in Elkhart, Ind.
