46 • RV PRO • January 2018 rv-pro.com Vohne Liche Dream Vohne Liche Mfg. has enjoyed a 400 percent increase in production in the past 12 months, prompting the company to reopen a second plant in its Peru, Ind., home, according to Jerry Sell, company vice president. The company believes bringing popular products to the market, such as its Dream series of travel trailers, is behind that success. Vohne Liche featured its Dream D259RB travel trailer to prospective dealers at the recent RVIA Show. "Trailer sales are all about the floorplans," Sell says. "We're trying to offer the most popular trends in floorplans in a small- er-sized trailer." The Dream D259RB places a bedroom in the front of the trailer, and a large bathroom in the rear that features "his- and-her" vanities, a linen closet, a toilet and a full-size shower. "Nobody in our market has a floorplan like this," Sell says. "Even with modern styles and good flow, functionality still has to be there. That's where this floorplan excels. There are gobs of storage space." Storage space is tucked throughout the galley, the main living space and the bedroom. There are no slides in this floorplan. "There are still older couples out there who want to travel and see the world, but they want something that's easy to set-up and easier to pull," Sell says. "This really fits into that segment." The primary living space includes a Jackknife sleeper sofa, a four-person booth for dining and a large entertainment center. The galley offers a refrigerator, a range, a sink, seamless counters and plenty of cabinet space. All of the interior lighting is 100 percent LED. "There are many contemporary styles in this trailer," Sell says. The Dream D259RB length is 30 feet, 11 inches, and its height is 10 feet, 2 inches. The unloaded vehicle weight is 4,910 pounds, and the GVWR is 7,000 pounds. The carrying capacity of this trailer is 2,090 pounds. "Dealers are buying this model by the dozens. We're shipping them now," Sell says. "It has been extremely popular." Additional standard interior features are a Bluetooth stereo, an omni-directional digital television antenna, a 13,500-BTU air conditioner, solid-wood drawers with ball-bearing glides, custom window treatments and pleated window shades. On the outside, this model has a high-gloss enamel paint exterior, a power awning with LED lights, outdoor speakers and television outlets, scissor stabilizer jacks, radial tires and radius safety glass windows. "This model retails in the mid-teens, so it's very affordable," Sell says. What impressed RV PRO: For a smaller-sized, no slide-out, lightweight trailer, this unit has some impressive features, such as the large bathroom complete with "his-and-her" vanities and a full-size shower. The amount of available storage space is impressive. S H O W C O V E R A G E S H O W C O V E R A G E For a smaller-sized, lighter weight trailer, this unit comes nicely equipped.
