The new Spirit Ultra-Lite

Coachmen Unveils New Ultra-Lite Line

Forest River’s Coachmen division will debut the New Spirit Ultra-Lite at the 2018 Forest River RV Expo. 

The Spirit floorplan lineup features five models ranging in length from 23 to 36 feet with weights as low as 4,500 pounds. The interior is subtly modern and offers an 83-and-a-half-inch interior ceiling height. Spread axles, an aerodynamic front profile and an enclosed underbelly gears the Spirit towards today’s downsized tow vehicles. 

“The world didn’t need another ultra-lite, the world needed an ultra-lite with some punch ... something different,” said Andy Brock, Spirit sales manager. “The Spirit delivers that punch with unique features that will excite salespeople and that excitement will be transmitted to the retail customer. Spirit sales people are talking about camping simplified features including fishing pole storage, Azdel composite sidewalls, pet-friendly features, hanger closets, motion-activated floor lights, valuables hutch and tool centers, among many other things.”

Spirit has one interior decor, and a limited number of floorplans. Model names are consisting of the approximate box length and the approximate dry weight.

“Our people loved the Spirit the minute they saw it,” said Quietwoods RV Owner Steve Neville. “It’s cliché, but we can’t keep them in stock, we literally can’t keep them in stock. It has so many unique features it really stands out on our lots.”
