In an effort to reinforce its motorized offerings, National RV Inc. has retooled the Tradewinds Class A diesel pusher – out of production since the 2003 model year. “We have redesigned it from scratch,” said Tony Cohen, marketing director. Two 2006 40-foot triple- and quad-slide floorplans debuted at the Louisville show for base prices of $240,000 and $250,000, respectively. Tradewinds, built on 32,000-pound GVWR Freightliner raised-rail XC chassis with 370-hp., 8.9 liter Cummins ISL turbocharged engines, feature new front and rear fiberglass caps, custom painted four-color full-body exterior graphics packages, interior ceiling heights of 85 1/4 inches and retro automotive-style dashes. Interior amenities include solid wood raised panel cabinet door with solid wood face framing, strainless steel refrigerator, separate toilets and baths, double sinks and louvered closet doors.
