With the stylish Falcon 23TH Fire Edition, Travel Lite has put together a trailer that could compete favorably with many teardrop-style trailers on its own, but the 23TH has an 8-foot garage that, along with its fire engine red exterior and interior highlights, are sure to appeal to anyone hauling a few more modest toys. With six tie-down connections, the 23TH is most likely to be used to carry two or three dirt bikes, but there are some other applications. "I know for a fact you can fit a Harley in there, because we've had some customers swing by the plant to do tours and they've had them in their unit," says President Dustin Johns. "The front part (between cabinets) is longer, so you can pull it in there." The bright red exterior carries over to some touches on the interior. The plush leather stitched sofa includes the name Falcon in red stitching. Above the sofa, aluminum cabinets with glass fronts emit a soft red glow from the LED accent lighting inside. The colors vary in different models. Travel Lite's Falcon GT travel trailer, for example, has either green or blue stitching with matching LED accent lighting. The dual-axle 23TH has 18-inch rims featuring 10-inch wide Michelin Premier LTX tires that carry a lifetime warranty. Exterior walls are made of 40-gauge aluminum. The unit includes a Lippert power tongue jack with memory settings. Interior features include a wet bath, queen bed, 5.6-cubic- foot stainless-steel refrigerator, stainless-steel appliances and a mirrored one-piece backsplash. The 23TH comes with a two-year hitch to bumper warranty and an MSRP of $19,900. What impressed RV PRO: Packing a toy hauler into a travel trailer that competes favorably with other manufacturers' tear- drop models without making the user feel cramped is no easy feat, but the Falcon pulls it off. Falcon isn't looking to bring in the Polaris RZR enthusiast, but anyone wanting to get out on dirt bikes or take their larger Harley Davidson motorcy- cles to Sturgis, S.D., or Daytona, Fla., can easily fit their toys inside with room to spare. Travel Lite's flair for design and use of coordinated interior and exterior color are sure to be a hit with the target audience. Travel Lite's Falcon 23TH Fire Edition manages to sneak an 8-foot garage into a trailer that is small enough to otherwise compete with teardrop models. The bright red exterior is continued in the red accent lights and stitching on the inside of the vehicle.
