Capitalizing on a void in the market for low-priced, lightweight toy hauler models, Prime Time Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Elkhart, Ind.-based Forest River Inc., will be introducing the new Avenger 18TH travel trailer toy hauler at the September 16-18 Elkhart County RV Open House.
“Our Prime Time dealers have been begging for us to enter this market,” said Joe Luther, Avenger product manager, in a press release. “Building upon the fantastic momentum that we already have with our Avenger trailers, this is a natural progression for the lineup. Even though we are targeting an entirely new customer with the 18TH, we’ve remained true to what’s made our products successful; great looks, intelligent floorplan design and aggressive pricing.”
The new SUT exterior features a full-sized ramp door with a 2,500-pound load capacity, oversized tires and axles, aluminum wheels and power tongue jack. A versatile Murphy Bed and folding dinette benches allow for over 17 feet of front-to-back hauling capacity that will accommodate two motorcycles. A pull-down screen enclosure, fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom, and cherry cabinetry throughout combine to provide excellent livability in the interior.
“With a dry weight of 4,500 pounds and a low price point, this new product is in a class all by itself,” commented Luther. “Not only will it appeal to the traditional toy hauler customers, but the flexibility and versatility provided by the innovative design will significantly expand the potential customer base to outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds.”
The Avenger 18TH has a base MSRP of $19,575. A second Avenger SUT floorplan is slated for introduction at the Louisville Show in November.
