Fleetwood Enterprises Inc.’s right to use the Coleman brand name on its folding campers is tied up in litigation, so the Riverside, Calif.-based company is marketing its 2004 model year units under the Fleetwood Folding Trailers brand.
The 2004 Fleetwood Folding Trailers, including the Destiny SE and DLX series, the Grand Tour and Grand Tour Elite and Highlander series, were shown during the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, which opened today (Dec. 2).
The show continues through Thursday (Dec. 4).
A Kansas state court issued an injunction in August preventing Fleetwood from using the Coleman brand name on its folding camping at least until the outcome of Fleetwood’s appeal of an earlier ruling.
Consequently, Fleetwood’s folding camper subsidiary in Somerset, Pa., now is marketing its products under the Fleetwood Folding Trailers brand. All owners with Fleetwood folding trailers branded with the Coleman name will continue to be supported by Fleetwood, according to Larry Marsh, vice president of Fleetwood’s Folding Trailers division.
The 2004 Fleetwood Folding Trailers at Louisville were “completely redesigned from the ground up with 18 spacious floorplans, residential height galleys, glide-out dinette areas, two king-size sleeping areas and solid wall bath cassette toilets and showers,” according to the company.
