It was last year that I reported that Yellowstone RV capitalizing on the growing strength of its Canyon Trail and Sedona brands introduced three new SLT Series floor plans.
Now, a year later, Nappanee, Indiana-based Yellowstone RV, a division of Gulf Stream Coach, is earning significant new attention, admiration, and sales at early-season retail RV shows across the United States and Canada, according to a company news release.
“We’ve spent years refining our floor plans, our features, and our construction standards, combining over 30 years of production experience with the input of our customers,” said Mike Spencer, Yellowstone RV National sales manager.
“And this year, it’s all coming together, with a rapidly expanding dealer base and booming retail sales.”
“It’s a combination of many factors. We’ve introduced breakthrough new floor plans to our Advanced Profile line, like our front bath 36FBQS, and our unique rear kitchen 32FRKT,” he added.
“We’ve developed the value-oriented SLT Series engineered just for owners of half-ton pickups, offering both couples-only luxury suites and family-oriented bunk models, all built with the rugged quality we’ve always been famous for. We have even moved the construction technology and luxury standards of our fifth wheels into a complete line of travel trailers for those looking for a flat-floor camping experience.”
When it comes to standard features, Spencer said the company responded to smart suggestions made by dealers and customers. For example, Gulf Stream Coach’s “extreme weather protection” four-season insulation package is now built into every unit the company sells.
“Many other popular options are also now part of our standard build, resulting in a level of production efficiency that gives retail customers an extremely attractive price-to-value relationship,” he added.
Yellowstone pushed the envelope and dazzled show-goers in other ways too, Spencer noted, with a residential 23-cubic-foot 110-volt stainless steel refrigerator/freezer option in the kitchen, high-end Lane brand lounges, sofas, and recliners in the living area, and a premium I-Gel memory foam mattress in the master bedroom.
“RV show attendees are telling us, ‘You’re the best value at the show’ and ‘Your interior is so much better than the competition, but you cost less,’” said Spencer.
“That’s what we’re hearing, week after week; show after show. We can feel the momentum building, and we intend on capitalizing on it with dealers who want to share in our growth.”
