To mark its founding in 1956, Montclair, Calif., minimotorhome manufacturer Lazy Daze Inc. has created a “50th Anniversary Edition” featuring upscale interior amenities and special paint. CEO Steve Newton, son of founder and President Ed Newton, said factory-direct Lazy Daze approached the design of the anniversary edition carefully. “It’s a little different from what our customers expect from us,” Steve Newton said. “A lot of our customers just want the durability of a Lazy Daze coach. This is more top-of-the-line. When you walk into it, we want you to feel like you are in a $150,000-plus A-body.” The anniversary package, featuring cherry cabinets, molded solid-surface countertops, satin nickel hardware, upgraded valances and ultra-leather cabin seating, is available as a $6,000 option package on all 10 Lazy Daze floorplans. Lazy Daze minimotorhomes, in lengths from 23 1/2 to 30 feet on 14,050-pound GVWR Ford E-450 Super Duty cutaway chassis, feature laminated aircraft aluminum body panels, one-piece roofs, hinged rear-wheel skirts and radius doors and windows. Retail prices start at $67,250.
