Howe, Indiana-based Cruiser RV has implemented a targeted redesign of its ultra-lightweight Fun Finder and Shadow Cruiser travel trailers and launched a new fifth-wheel floor plan in its wide-body line of Stryker toy haulers.
Slated for introduction at the September 18-22 Elkhart County RV Open House, upgrades across all lines will include new exterior graphics, updated interior designs, and state-of-the-art technology.
“Cruiser has made sweeping changes in several of its core laminated lines for 2018,” said Chris Hermon, president of Heartland Recreational Vehicles, which acquired Cruiser RV in January of 2015.
“Upgrades are across-the-board, modernizing units with clean exterior styling while incorporating the latest product innovations and advancements in technology on the interior.”
The new Fun Finder floor plans offer the convenience of sleeping up to 10 while still allowing for towing by half-ton trucks.
The updated travel trailer offerings come standard with solid-surface countertops, residential raised panel hardwood cabinet doors, and king beds in all models.
The Fun Finder series offers luxury, modern styling and standard features such as vaulted ceilings, fiberglass front cap, aluminum construction with 5/8-inch tongue and groove plywood floors, solid surface countertops, and flush mount range.
The exterior features high-gloss white fiberglass, a new aggressive graphics package, and a two-tone painted front cap that sets off the brand’s redesigned logo.
The interior also received a facelift with solid-surface countertops and new LED lighting throughout that complements the redesigned dinettes and tri-fold sofas.
Offering 11 full-featured floor plans (ranging from 22 feet to 36 feet 9 inches), Fun Finder remains aggressively priced and positioned to further grow market share in the highly competitive ultra-lightweight segment.
The Shadow Cruiser, one of Cruiser RV’s most popular models, has been equipped with a redesigned platinum fiberglass exterior, while also sporting a two-tone painted front cap and front LEDs to highlight the new logo.
The interiors have been refreshed with upgraded furniture and new technology throughout.
Sturdy 5/8-inch tongue and groove plywood flooring is offered on all models, giving the coach a high-end look while providing lasting quality.
For 2018, Shadow Cruiser includes 14 floor plans ranging from 23- to 32-feet designed to accommodate couples and families.
Cruiser addresses the rapidly expanding toy hauler market with wholesale interior upgrades across the Stryker line while also adding the 39-foot triple slide STF3513 fifth-wheel that will debut at Open House.
The versatile Stryker fifth-wheel toy hauler lineup is now comprised of three models offering at least 13 feet of garage space with durable tie downs located throughout and wardrobe slides in the master bedroom.
“The 13-foot garage meets a key trend in the toy hauler market by accommodating the popular four-seat side-by-side,” said General Manager Jay Mohamed.
“Our Stryker line is at the forefront in this growing market segment with features that stay in step with consumer demand.”
Standard features for the 2018 Stryker fifth-wheel toy haulers include large holding tank capacity for dry camping, with 100+ gallons of fresh water capacity including a large 10 gallon water heater, fuel station with 30 gallon capacity and generator prep, larger 8 cu. ft. refrigerator, and lighted awning with integrated speakers.
In addition to spotlighting Cruiser RV’s 2018 model line, sales and technical experts will be on hand to provide tours of the units and answer questions.
I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.
