The Fleetwood RV division of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. recently introduced its 2005 American Eagle and American Tradition highline, diesel-engine Class A motorhomes during the American Coach Association Rally in Palm Desert, Calif.
The Eagle and Tradition both come on Fleetwood’s patented Liberty Chassis, which was introduced for model year 2004.
The 2005 Eagle and Tradition include 50 enhancements over 2004, including the following:
• A computer-programmed universal remote control with one-button operation for most A/V functions.
• New graphics and decors applied with DuPont exterior body paint,, providing unmatched detail and durability.
• Goodyear G670-RV tires, the first tires specifically designed to meet the specialized requirements of a Class motorhome.
• Side-swinging compartment doors for improved access to luggage compartments.
Fleetwood RV also recently delivered a 2005 American Heritage luxury motorcoach to professional racecar driver Ryan Newman. It is the first Class A motorhome to feature a 600-hp diesel engine, according to the company.
During model year 2004, Freightliner provided the modular front and rear sections for Fleetwood’s Liberty Chassis, but the Spartan Chassis subsidiary of Spartan Motors Inc. announced earlier this week that, beginning Aug. 1, it will be the exclusive chassis supplier for Fleetwood’s Eagle and Tradition models along with Fleetwood’s Heritage, Revolution, Providence and Excursion models.
In addition to the recently introduced highline motorcoaches, Fleetwood RV has on its website, www.fleetwoodrv.com, details about its 2005 Excursion, Providence, Discovery, Expedition and Bounder diesel models.
