Keystone RV and The Flipping Nomad have announced that they will begin building a “one of one” concept fifth wheel next week at the company’s headquarters in Goshen, Ind. This project was developed to set aside common RV design conventions and create experiences that may influence future work.
“We have definitely been inspired by Cortni’s work and design aesthetic,” said Sam Lengerich, Montana product manager. “She has done some remarkable Montana renovations that our team has been watching as we continue to evolve the brand’s styling. We’re excited to keep moving Montana forward and we think owners will be too.”
The Montana plant will create a custom shell based on its 3791RD floorplan, which will be turned over to Cortni and The Flipping Nomad team to build out over the next 6 to 8 weeks. Springboarding off a contemporary aesthetic, the custom build will push design and structural norms and be chronicled in a video series published Mondays on Keystone’s YouTube and social channels. The series will begin Monday, Aug. 19.
“I always push the envelope with my RV renovations but this one is going to a level that has never been seen before,” said Cortni. “Nothing about it will feel like an RV. It will feel like a high end, New York City flat. There is even a feature so big, and so unique that it has to go in before the exterior walls go on.”
