Extreme RV’s LLC, Caldwell, Idaho, has introduced the 2007 Mega-Lite sport utility travel trailer (SURV), available in three floorplans in lengths of 19 to 29 feet. With a 7,670-pound GVWR, the wood-and-aluminum Mega-Lite is designed to be towed behind a half-ton pickup truck. “The Mega-Lite is for the guy 25 to 35 who wants to be 15, and he’s got a half-ton truck and a couple of motorcycles,” said Chris Robinson, sales manager for Extreme, the successor company of RV industry pioneer Kit Manufacturing Inc. “In years past, if he went onto a dealer’s lot they’d usually have to send him walking because there weren’t many trailers that could be pulled by a half-ton truck.” Retailing for just under $30,000, Mega-Lite features an open floorplan with a standard horseshoe-shaped rear dinette incorporating two couches that fold against the interior sidewalls and a table that stores automatically beneath the upper of two standard electric double beds. Mega-Lite also features an entertainment center with a 20-inch TV that drops from the ceiling and a lightweight 2,500-pound ramp made of aluminum and composite fiberglass.
