Recognizing the need for a competitive ultralight brand, Coachmen RV, a division of Forest River Inc., announced that the New Spirit Ultra-Lite will debut at the 2018 Forest River RV Expo in September.
The Spirit floorplan lineup features five models ranging in length from 23-36 feet with weights as low as 4,500 pounds. According to a press release, the interior is subtly modern and offers 83 1/2 inches of interior ceiling height. Spread axles, aerodynamic front profile and enclosed underbelly gears the Spirit towards today’s downsized tow vehicles.
“The industry didn’t need another ultralight. The industry needed an ultralight with some punch, something different,” said Spirit Sales Manager Andy Brock. “The Spirit delivers that punch with unique features that will excite sales people and that excitement will be transmitted to the retail customer. Spirit sales people are talking about “Camping Simplified” features including fishing pole storage, Azdel composite sidewalls, pet-friendly features, hanger closets, motion activated floor lights, valuables hutch and tool centers, among many other things.”
Feature packed, the Spirt offers one interior decor, and a limited amount of proven floorplans. The names of the models are intended to help dealership salespeople by including approximate box length and dry weight.
“It’s cliché but we can’t keep them in stock, we literally can’t keep them in stock. It has so many unique features it really stands out on our lots,” stated owner Steve Neville, Quietwoods RV.
