California-based RKS Off-Road has announced it will start customer deliveries of its Purpose Trailer in Q1 2021. RKS Off-Road said it is “singularly focused on revolutionizing the recreational vehicle industry with levels of product quality and durability never seen before in the market.”
“Everything we do at RKS is designed and engineered to provide customized solutions for the most demanding and discerning of adventurers,” said Elisabeth Gritsch, co-founder of RKS Off-Road. “We spent years in the RV rental business and were constantly disappointed with the low levels of quality in both materials and craftsmanship. Launching RKS has allowed us to challenge the status quo.”
The Purpose Trailer comes with a variety of features. The full outdoor kitchen includes 20k BTU dual burner portable stove, stainless steel professional-style sink, slide-out tray for either a cooler or fridge/freezer and built-in storage. The separate bedroom and bathroom includes a full shower, ceramic toilet and wall mirror. The bedroom offers a modular configuration which can be set for two singles or one queen. The Purpose Trailer also offers best-in-class 70-gallon capacity water and LP tanks. Depending on shower frequency, duration and consumption of drinking water, users would have enough water for between two and six weeks (based on consumption of between 1.5 and 4.9 gallons per day per person), the company said.
“Our aim in launching RKS Off-Road and our Purpose Trailer was to channel our personal passion for the outdoors and team that with our professional experience in the automotive sector to raise the bar for quality and durability,” said Travis King, co-founder of RKS Off-Road. “Our team has collectively spent decades in the quality and integrity-focused automotive industry, working for OEMs including Audi, Daimler and Ferrari. This experience allows us to take learnings from the industry’s proven quality and reliability processes and tools. At our development facility, we bring this knowledge to life, modifying and applying tried and tested development and prototyping processes to create industry-leading recreational vehicles.”
