Skyline Corp., Elkhart, Ind., has added the Weekender, an entry-level wood-and-aluminum travel trailer designed to give consumers more interior choices, to its 2005 lineup. “This coach offers consumers a tremendous amount of choices with higher end fabrics and interior combinations,” said Terry Bodenbender, director of sales. Standard features include tapered one-piece roofs, oak or cherry solid-wood frame cabinets, miniblinds, embossed vinyl floors, 17,000- or 25,000-Btu furnaces, white acrylic sinks and lift-up bed storage. Available in five floorplans ranging from 24 to 30 feet, the Weekender retails starting from $13,500. Also for 2005, Skyline has added three 24- to 28-foot Way-Lite travel-trailer floorplans to its Rampage toy hauler, which is available in Skyline’s Nomad, Aljo and Layton sister brands. Weight reduction has been achieved by reducing the width of the trailer from 102 inches to 98 inches. Narrower and lighter Rampage Way-Lite floorplans, featuring up to 12 ½ feet of garage space, retail for $17,500 and $19,300.
