Winnebago Forza MotorhomeWinnebago recently introduced the Forza motorhome at The Rally, the Camping World/Good Sam event held in Syracuse at the New York State Fairgrounds being held this weekend.

Thousands of RVers and enthusiasts were on-hand for the event where the Winnebago Forza made its debut. The all-new, pleasantly priced Forza is built on the Freightliner® XCS straight-rail chassis which provides a solid foundation with a Cummins 340-hp diesel engine and Allison® six-speed transmission delivering the power. Diesel pushers are known for storage and the Forza ups the ante with its Smart Storage™ design that pushes capacity even further. Inside, are fine amenities such as polished Corian® galley countertops, coffee glazed cabinetry, upscale entertainment features, and LED lighting.

Arnold and Jean Bye from Waunakee, Wisconsin loved the new Forza. “We are looking for a small diesel with a queen bed in the traditional position so we could use it without putting the slides out. We love the mid entry. We have a 40’ now and we want to downsize – this is perfect for us. We can get 8 people around the sectional table. The side swing doors allow easy access to great storage for a small unit. I also love the passenger seat with the table for all my maps and the laptop.

The all-new Class A Diesel pusher series offers two floorplans – the 34T and 38R

Ultra-Fab Products, Elkhart, Ind., introduces The Eliminator strut stabilizer for fifth wheels and travel trailers.
The strut attaches to RV frames and jacks for maximum stability and is a complement to manual stabilizers. The Eliminator fits with most types of manual jacks.
The company says The Eliminator’s product features include a universal design that fits all travel trailers and fifth wheels, struts that lock into place when extended, and a black power coat finish that resists rust. Ultra-Fab says the product can be set up in minutes once it is permanently installed by bolting it on.
The Eliminator is boxed in packages of six.

Campsites are not always as level as they should be and sometimes our stabilizer jacks don’t reach the ground. Most of us carry a few blocks of wood or plastic to make up the difference. The new Ultra-Fab 30-inch scissor jacks give added reach  compared to  24-inch jacks standard on most to travel trailers, fifth wheels, horse and cargo trailers.

The scissor jacks install easily by welding or bolting them to the RV frame by 3-in. x 10-in. multi-hole mounting plates. They are ruggedly constructed and the black powder coat finish resists rust.

Their strong worm gear jacking mechanism won’t slip and the 5-in. x 9-in. footpads helps combat sinking and tilting.

And once installed the Ultra 30-inch scissor jacks are easy to operate. By using the hand crank that is included in the Twin-Pack simply crank them down until they are firmly against the surface. And since they extend from 4 3/4 to 30-inches, the scissor jacks will give you stability even if your campsite is not level.

One of the unique features of Ultra-Fab’s scissor jacks is that they are over 20% faster going up and down than the other leading brands because the jacks have a left thread at one end and a right thread at the other with a nut at each end so the threads work together to raise and lower faster.

If you want to eliminate hand cracking you can add the Ultra Speed Socket scissor jack drill accessory (Mfg. No. 48-979002). It saves time and effort and speeds up raising or lowering your scissor jacks. Attach the Ultra Speed Socket to your hand drill and let the drill do the work.

The 30-inch Scissor Jack (Mfg. No. 48-979032) is also available in a single pack but does not include the hand crank.

You may not always be able to control the stability in your job or personal relationships, but you can control the stability of your RV with Ultra-Fab’s new Ultra 30-inch scissor jacks in single and twin packs and a step closer to the good things in life requiring stability.

Ultra-Fab’s new Ultra 30-inch scissor jacks are available at Camping World, most RV dealerships and RV parts and accessories stores. To locate a dealer near you, visit the Ultra-Fab website.
