Kyle Kwasny, president of Dutchmen RV, has introduced the Yukon Luxury Residential Fifth Wheel to its 2020 product line. Yukon was introduced to select dealers in the U.S. this month and is now available in full production at Dutchmen’s Goshen, Ind., facility.
“We discovered that the market was missing a true residential luxury fifth wheel and with Yukon we can fill that missing segment,” said Kwasny. “During design and conception our goal was to give the customer a completely reimagined and unique residential luxury fifth wheel. In order to achieve this, we had to completely redefine the high profile fifth wheel segment.”
“We printed off a generic fifth wheel floorplan render and divided it down into five separate zones that matter most to the customer which is the exterior, living, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom,” said Josh Staley, general manager of the company’s Yukon, Atlas and Voltage series. “For each zone, we crafted a list of key features that we felt were important to residential living. Doing so, we realized storage and personal space were at the top of every list.”
The 2020 Yukon by Dutchmen is a 100-inch, wide-body fifth wheel with an 8-foot ceiling height, and 7-foot slide-out heights. Additional features in the 2020 Yukon include a king-size bed with overhead reading lights, bedroom entertainment center with fireplace, kitchen pantry, large kitchen island, LG solid surface countertops, residential four-burner cooktop stove with oven, as well as an 18-cubic-foot Samsung French door refrigerator. The outside boasts ample pass through storage, including a slide-out tray and 160 gallons of freshwater capacity.
“To accommodate our must-have designs we needed to stretch the mid-deck,” said Staley. “By doing this the Yukon produced the most open concept feel. We were also able to add in special touches such as dual bowls in the bathroom vanity, an oversized shower with glass doors, and a separate stool room. Plus, we moved the washer/dryer area out of the bedroom and put it the bathroom giving room for a full-size dresser with hanging closet. The Yukon is simply unlike anything we’ve built before.”
