Elkhart, Indiana-based Thor Motor Coach announced the introduction of Rapid Camp on select 2015 Class A and Class C motorhomes. Rapid Camp is a wireless control system made to fit today’s modern motorhomes.
This Linc Remote System technology allows owners to set up camp quickly at a distance of up to 50 feet away from the motorhome. Features that can be operated include the leveling jacks, slide-outs, generator, patio awning, and patio light.
With Rapid Camp, owners can watch their leveling jacks and make sure there’s no obstructions or dips in the ground, according to a company news release.
An auto-level button brings convenience to the table and only takes 90 seconds to set the jacks. Owners can also operate their slide-outs and monitor the process to safely avoid tree branches and other obstructions.
“Rapid Camp was launched on several brands this past year and it’s been a successful selling feature,” said Jon Krider, vice president of product development at Thor Motor Coach.
“It definitely simplifies using the coach for our customers. This Linc Remote System technology provides customers with easy access to their most-used features and allows them to be outside of the coach while operating jacks and slide rooms.”
He added, “For instance, if a rain storm rolled in and they were visiting a neighboring coach, they could simply retract the awning using the Rapid Camp without getting wet!”
In a separate news release, Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI) announced that Thor Motor Coach is now using LCI Linc Remote System technology for its Rapid Camp wireless control system on several of its Class A and Class C motorhome brands.
“Thor Motor Coach is the first company to use the Linc in a motorhome application, and that’s exciting because motorhome users don’t have to be standing in the center part of their motorhome to operate multiple functions anymore,” said LCI Body Division Product Manager Chris Ganshorn explaining the benefits of the Linc Remote System.
“Instead, Linc allows them to remotely control key functions from as far away as 50 feet, providing them a more convenient set up they can safely monitor from outside the motorhome.”
Models equipped with Rapid Camp include the 2015 Challenger, Miramar, Hurricane, Windsport, and Outlaw Class A brands and the Outlaw, Four Winds, and Chateau F-550 Super C Class C models.
