28 • RV PRO • SEPTEMBER 2014 rv-pro.com Elkhart Open House Week Prime Time: Back for its sixth Open House Week event this year after experiencing sub- stantial growth in 2013, Prime Time isn't resting on its laurels. Instead, the Forest River division is building on its success with the launch of several new models. New offerings will include variations on Prime Time's heavy-duty Spartan fifth wheel toy hauler, which it introduced with much fanfare at the 2013 National RV Trade Show. Spe- cifically, the RV maker will debut the Spartan 300 series, which will be a smaller, less expensive (roughly $55,000 to $60,000 MSRP) version, as well as offering the Spartan in two travel trailer floorplans. Additionally, Prime Time will offer a number of new floorplans and interior design changes for its five other brands: Avenger, Crusader, LaCrosse, Sanibel and Tracer. Perhaps most notable among developments for those five brands is the launch of the Avenger toy hauler, an entry-level, stick-and-tin product in a segment where Prime Time has not competed previously and there is a "huge need for in the market," according to Prime Time President Jeff Rank. Additionally, Prime Time will be introducing the Crusader Lite, a handful of lightweight fifth wheel floorplans. "So, we will have a lot of things for our dealers to look at," Rank promises. Dynamax: Dynamax will unveil three new brands during Elkhart Open House Week. e Rev by Dynamax is a 24-foot Class B+ on the new Dodge Pro- Master chassis. It will have three floorplans at its open house. Features include an awning, a 7-foot refrig- erator, a drop-down bed, an outside entertainment system, solid-surface countertops, frameless windows and surround sound stereo. e Force by Dynamax Super C will be built on an M2 Freightliner chassis and feature a 340-horsepower ISB engine. It will have three models in the 39-foot range and will come with a 40-inch TV and aluminum-frame VacuBond construction. e Trilogy SLC will be a smaller, lighter extension of the Trilogy fifth wheel line. e RV will feature two floorplans at its event in the 35- to 38-foot range. Features include dual air conditioners, an upgraded large TV, outside entertainment system, awning, 50-amp service, and a MOR/ryde suspension system.
