Eswatini’s Hon. Minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade, Senator Manqoba Khumalo, and the U.S. Ambassador to Eswatini Lisa Peterson, along with a contingent of diplomats, recently toured Hoefer Group’s newest RVs at the company’s Eswatini, Africa, factory.
According to a press release, the event marked the first official unveiling of Hoefer’s newest travel trailer platform, branded as StradaX and NevadaX in South Africa, a variant of which is soon destined for the U.S. market in four floorplans ranging from 17 feet to almost 27 feet.
CEO Charles Hoefer said the new travel trailer designs are ultra-curved and feature yacht-grade sandwich composite body structures that can handle light, off-road use. The American models will have custom floorplans, each crafted with dealer input in a range of lengths.
“The mission of our company is innovation,” said Hoefer. “We want to innovate every aspect of an RV so that they will be so much more fun to use and can last decade after decade like a well-made yacht. Our roofs can be walked on, and yet the units only weigh 2,000 pounds at 19-feet long with awning, spare tire, full bath, kitchen and large fridge included. The U.S. models will be over-the-top in terms of design and yacht-component integration.”
Hoefer Group will be exporting fully compliant travel trailers back to the U.S. through a select group of dealers, including Mekkelsen RV in Vermont, Robbins Camper Sales in Florida, and Princess Craft RV in Texas.
