TrailManor Inc. reports that its new Elkmont – the company’s first non-folding upright travel trailer – has been well received at retail, including four units sold at the recent Florida RV SuperShow. “This year, more so than ever, everybody introduced something they called lightweight or ultra lightweight,” said Jim Fisher, national sales manager for the Lake City, Tenn.-based towable builder. “We still beat them by hundreds of pounds.” The 24-foot unit, with a dry weight of 2,498 pounds, is available in two floorplans featuring either a front sofa or queen bed. Fisher said additional floorplans will be introduced this year. The Elkmont carries the TrailManor look with many of the same components as in its telescoping travel trailer line and features a walk-around bed, marble-look countertops, wood grain floors, custom upholstery, maple cabinets and custom window treatments. MSRP: $23,180
