What do you do when you’ve reached your 50th year of doing business? You take a moment to celebrate, reflect on what has been learned over those 50 years and you re-focus on your future and do something special. Coachmen RV, a division of Forest River, Inc. has done just this with its “All New” 50th Anniversary Edition Brookstone fifth wheel.
“We recognized that we needed to simplify and streamline Brookstone into one product offering and have accordingly re-positioned, re-designed and re-defined it with the Brookstone ’50th Anniversary Edition’ which replaces all prior Brookstone products,” states Fred Hershberger, General Manager of Coachmen RV’s fifth wheel division. “Our brand charter is simple…we are deliberate in our design to build the most user-friendly and functional luxury fifth wheel available…and do so at a fantastic price,” added Hershberger.
“We’ve designed into the floor plans dedicated storage for a full-sized kitchen trash can, silverware drawer, long utensil drawer, lay down spice rack drawer, pots & pans drawer, wine rack, optional dishwasher, broom closet, dual full-sized clothes basket storage, a cabinet that stores a mini step ladder for those hard to reach cabinets and even a hide-a-way pet feeding station,” says Hershberger. Other interior features include a 50” LED Smart television, MCD roller shades, optional powered incline bed and much, much more.
According to Hershberger, “Consumers will enjoy world class towing with the 50th Anniversary Brookstone which combines ‘Best in Class’ aerodynamics with the LCI Correct Track Alignment System, Dexter Axles & MOR/ryde suspension.”
Brookstone will begin to ship its first floor plan which is a 37’ triple slide fifth wheel with a Base MSRP of $55,000 during the month of June.
