Voyager Campervans has partnered with Accuride International to convert a cargo van into a rental vehicle that’s compact and lightweight, offering fuel economy and easy drivability.
According to a press release, a key to the design are large, heavy-duty, pull-out cabinets containing a kitchen and all necessary camper-vehicle equipment and storage. Supporting the cabinets and helping them move smoothly are heavy-duty, durable Accuride slides that bear up to 600 pounds.
“Our budget-conscious customers want all the amenities of home while having an affordable, sustainable, easy-to-handle vehicle,” says Voyager Campervans founder Grady Linder. “We selected Accuride’s 9308 Heavy-Duty Handed Slides with Lock-in and Lock-Out because they can sustain a lot of weight, as well as wear and tear. These slides also help us fully utilize a tight space, and they enable drawers to move smoothly but also stay in place.
“The durability and reliability of Accuride slides are a major contributor to our customers having a great experience,” Linder added.
“Voyager Campervans’ innovative use of our heavy-duty 9308E slides demonstrates the versatility of our solutions, in this case, enabling manufacturers to meet growing needs for compact, sustainable vehicles that can carry extraordinarily heavy loads,” noted Sid Kalantar, Accuride’s senior vice president of sales and marketing.
