With the unveiling of several new products during last week’s 42nd Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Fleetwood RV reported the addition of numerous new dealers and a sizeable order backlog.
“All of our new products were enthusiastically received by dealers attending the show,” said Chris Braun, executive vice president of Fleetwood RV. “Fleetwood signed 58 new dealers and took over $185 million in wholesale orders, an increase of 34% over last year’s show.”
Braun said the introduction of a full-wall slideout on Fleetwood’s Pace Arrow motorhome was particularly well received, noting, “It was such a success we are already making plans to offer this feature on some of our diesel brands in the spring of 2005.”
“We were overwhelmed by the response from the dealer community and media,” said Ed Caudill, president and CEO of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. “Fleetwood remains committed to being a leader in product innovation. These new products are a testament to the skilled product planning and development and planning teams at Fleetwood.”
