Peterson Industries Unveils Second Excel Door-in-Slide Floor Plan

“With the overwhelming, but not surprising, success of our Winslow D37SDF, featuring an industry first walk-in door built into the slide-out room, we are set to unveil our second unit with this amazing feature, a Limited L36SDM,” said Excel President Bryan Tillett.

The company will be doing a live webcast from Hampton, Virginia, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time March 14.

Tillett will host this telecast live from the Hampton Roads Convention Center.

“We are super excited to offer another floor plan with the walk-in door in the slide,” said Tillett. “We have put a lot of thought into this model, just as we did the 37SDF. It’s important to us that we design the entire floor plan around this feature and not just take existing models and move the door to the slide just for the sake of novelty.”

Settles RV in Flint Hill, Virginia, is offering this new floor plan at the 10th Annual Virginia RV show running March 14 to 16 in Hampton, Virginia.

During the show, Peterson Industries is teaming up with Settles RV for an 8:30 a.m. Sunday breakfast gathering of their Mid-Atlantic Excel Club.

This unit will be at a sneak preview of the 2015 Excel line-up which will be coming out early summer and feature new amenities such as multi-plex wiring, standard MCD shades, slam latches on access doors, a larger bedroom as well as an additional closet built into the bedroom slide.

Worth Pondering…

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
