Keystone RV Co.’s Passport Ultra Lite division is launching the ROV line of affordable, luxury lightweight trailers.
“We know from talking with consumers and our dealers that there is a huge, underserved market. This could be tens-of-thousands of people,” said Passport Product Manager Ryan Shuff in a press release. “Many are individuals who have tent camped or camped with their parents but feel an RV is not in their plans because they do not have a large truck or tow vehicle, or that the price is out of reach. ROV provides our dealers with an opportunity to reach out to these buyers with a high-quality camper that is both easily towable and extremely affordable.”
Weighing less than 3,000 pounds and luxuriously equipped, ROV delivers a host of features including a front window to fill the interior with natural light. In addition, ROV offers a fully equipped kitchen with convection microwave, bath, HD TV, roof air conditioning, larger holding tanks, power tongue jack, and Thule patio awning.
The dinette in the slideroom of the 170RKRV also doubles as an extra bed while the integrated hitch-receiver will pair with a number of different racks to haul bicycles, kayaks or additional cargo. Towing is easier and more car-like, due in part to the 6 1/2-foot wide body on 8-foot axles so the driver can easily see behind the coach without the use of extension mirrors.
The ROV exterior design offers a distinctive look, with a unique shape, clean graphics, wide-track axle and front windshield. Interiors feature higher-end fabrics, plush upholstery, larger TVs, and expansive seating and sleeping areas.
Shuff noted, “Our goal was to make the ROV feel like a large, luxury coach in a very attractive, smaller package that can be towed by customers driving smaller SUVs, crossover vehicles, or mid-sized trucks.
ROV is currently offered in two floorplans, the 170RKRV and the 173RBRV, with two additional models coming soon. For dealer information contact Ryan Shuff at 574-535-1475 or e-mail [email protected]. To view a video click here or scroll to the right side of the RVBUSINESS.com home page.
