The Wildcat division of Elkhart-based Forest River introduced a redesigned fifth wheel product, targeting the high-volume, mid-price segment, according to a recent news release.
“For over a decade, Wildcat has been one of Forest River’s flagship brands and it’s been wildly successful with retail customers,” Wildcat Sales manager Chris Saal said. “However, our dealers have consistently asked us to make the product lighter and more affordable so that we can be even more competitive.”
The Wildcat features an ivory-colored high-gloss fiberglass exterior with a premium graphics package, slam latch baggage doors, and a two-tone painted front cap.
Features on the interior include a 50-inch TV, glazed cherry hardwood cabinet doors, and upgraded solid surface countertops. Customer-friendly upgrades include R-52 insulation in the floor and roof, an 80-inch queen mattress from Denver Mattress and two-piece washer/dryer prep on every floorplan.
“I’ve worked in this business for a long time, but this is the most excited I’ve ever been for a product launch,” Saal said. “We listened to our dealer feedback carefully and the new Wildcat is a direct result of that feedback. I’m confident dealers and customers alike will love this fifth wheel.”
The Wildcat can be viewed at the Forest River Open House venue slated for Sept. 22-24 at the Dynamax complex at 2745 Northland Drive in Elkhart. For more information regarding Wildcat, please call Saal at 574-389-4982.
