The LS37IK offers customers in the fifth-wheel segment a range of high-quality features and amenities, including:

• Spacious island kitchen with double sink and Corian countertops.

• Quiet Performa-Cool A/C System.

The first LIFESTYLE Luxury RV production unit was purchased by John and Diane Meeuwsen, who were impressed by the model’s spacious floorplan and quality details and amenities, according to the release.

“We’ve been excited about the development of LIFESTYLE here at Country Camping, and it’s clear that this same excitement is very much alive and growing among our customers, too,” said Craig Forsyth, sales manager at Country Camping. “In talking with the Meeuwsens, it was evident this model offers them exactly what they were looking for in a next-generation luxury fifth wheel RV. Once they learned more about LIFESTYLE and everything this model features, I think it was a pretty easy decision, and one they’re very excited about.”
