Offering industry-leading storage, a 100-gallon fresh water capacity, concealed battery with a dedicated in-floor access door, and an optional outdoor deck, the GPS is ideal for storing and accessing gear for hunters, anglers, and tailgaters, alike, according to a company news release.

A “v-nose” design supports the patent-pending Sport Locker compartment, a walk-in cargo room with 750 pounds of capacity that delivers 159 cubic feet of storage space. This lockable space sits atop a uniquely- engineered tongue, accessed by a full height door and features a sloped, aerodynamic, wedge-shape fiberglass roof.
