HOWE, Ind. – At the 2023 Elkhart RV Dealer Open House, DRV Luxury Suites shared the newest innovations going into its 2024 models. Updates include everything from new construction materials, fresh decor schemes, clever storage solutions, upgraded tech features, and more.
Slide floors will feature a water-resistant composite subflooring, which is lighter than traditional plywood and offers superior adhesion and durability against moisture. This lightweight material also contributes to improved fuel efficiency and allows for more cargo capacity.
“Many of our updates have been inspired by real customer feedback we’ve received over the last year,” said Shawn James, General Manager of DRV Luxury Suites. “We’re excited to share what’s gone into our 2024 models and see customers’ response to the features they’ve been requesting.”
Across DRV’s portfolio of models, interiors will get a makeover for 2024. A new Walnut wood tone called Toffee Grove brings a touch of nature inside the coach. And there’s new window trim, built-in window sills, and a new fascia style that frames the slideouts. RV shoppers can also choose from new interior fabric and flooring options, allowing them to customize the decor according to their preferences.
In the living area, fresh furniture colors and styles give RV shoppers options. The furniture will also include additional features like a new head-tilt feature on all reclining seating to make downtime even more comfortable.
DRV kitchens will also get several upgrades. New residential pull-out pantry storage solutions allow campers to maximize every square inch of space in one of the most important rooms in any floor plan. A new residential kitchen sink will include a Kohler faucet and a workstation that expands the surface areas of counters for easier meal prep and cooking. New lighting over the kitchen island helps illuminate every corner of the room.
Upgraded technological features include a standard Advanced Blind Spot Information System that offers the same safety features included in most new commercial vehicles. Dual, sidemounted 77GHz radar and indicator lamps work together to scan adjacent lanes and indicate when there’s a vehicle in the coach’s blind spot. When a driver engages their turn signal, if there’s a vehicle in the blind spot, the indicator lights will flash rapidly to notify them that it’s unsafe to complete a lane change. The Advanced Blind Spot Information System provides generous monitoring coverage on both sides of the coach to make DRV models safer and more innovative than before.
Campers who enjoy playing music will love Ghost Audio, the new transducer audio system brought exclusively to DRV through a partnership with ASA Electronics. Ghost Audio is powered by Bongiovi DPS tuning software to provide impressive sound without a visible speaker. Instead, hidden transducers attached to the back of walls transform them into a sound system that fills the entire coach with high-fidelity audio.
And DRV models will also come with the newly introduced Trio Airflow A/C System, which cools faster, quieter, and more efficiently than other models. Trio uses a custom-designed, proprietary rotear, splice blocks, and a block in the plenum to reduce air turbulence in the system so it can reach cooler temperatures in less time. The result is energy savings, increased comfort, and more even cooling throughout the coach than ever before.
