Forest River Inc. has reinforced its commitment to customer satisfaction by awarding a dealer with a custom-designed mobile RV service vehicle during a drawing which took place at the company’s 12th Annual RV Product Expo on Sept. 24. According to a press release, Roulottes Chaudiere, a Forest River dealership out of Saint-Nicolas, Quebec, won the drawing and received a Rockport Workport Ford E-450 customized mobile RV service vehicle.
Forest River’s Rockport Division was tasked with designing a mobile service vehicle specifically for RV service in the field. The custom design features a V10 Ford E-450 chassis, boasting a 14-foot long service compartment with 78 inches of interior height, accessible through a sliding walk through door from the cab or a rear 47-inch wide, 71-inch tall door with 70/30 swing motion. The mobile service vehicle is also equipped with 10 spacious exterior power locking compartments (with interior access), interior roadside and curbside workbenches, interior shelving and LED lighting, a rear camera with a seven-inch monitor, a large roof rack and Class C hitch. The vehicle is then finished off with a customized graphics package featuring the dealer’s logo and contact information.
“What a truck,” Josée Bedard, owner of Roulottes Chaudiere, said. “This is going to change the way we do business on the road, and I am not just talking about the image that it’s going to project.”
Dealer response to this mobile service vehicle was very favorable, with a number of dealers inquiring about custom service vehicles for their dealerships.
Workport vehicle up-fits for mobile service are available through Forest River’s Rockport commercial vehicle division.
