According to a press release, Rapid Camp is a wireless control system made to fit today’s modern motorhomes. It allows owners to set up camp quickly at a distance of up to 50 feet away from the motorhome. Features that can be operated include the leveling jacks, slideouts, generator, patio awning and patio light.
With Rapid Camp, owners can watch their leveling jacks and make sure there’s no obstructions or dips in the ground. An auto-level button only takes 90 seconds to set the jacks. Owners can also operate their slideouts and monitor the process to safely avoid tree branches and other obstructions.
“Rapid Camp was launched on several brands this past year and it’s been a successful selling feature,” said Jon Krider, vice president of product development at Thor Motor Coach. “We also filmed an infomercial-style video for YouTube to show consumers how easy it is to use.”
Models equipped with Rapid Camp include the 2015 Challenger, Miramar, Hurricane, Windsport and Outlaw Class A brands and the Outlaw, Four Winds and Chateau F-550 Super C models.
