CRESCO, Iowa / June 19, 2007 – The amenities
in Featherlite’s newest Sport Utility
Recreational Vehicle (SURV) Model 7941 make it
the ultimate hauling vehicle for outdoor
enthusiasts and their motorized equipment. The
durable aluminum SURV’s enhanced style and
functionality is highlighted by a spacious
garage, two slideouts and a ‘stand-up bedroom’.
The new SURV Model 7941 will be introduced to
the media and general public during the IRL race
events, including the Iowa Corn Indy 250, being
held June 22-24, 2007, at the Iowa Speedway in
Newton, Iowa. It was unveiled to Featherlite’s
230-member dealer network in May as part of the
annual Featherlite International Dealer Meeting.
“The unique, functional design of the Model
7941 is new to Featherlite’s SURV product line
and fully maximizes the living, garage and
storage space that is desired by recreational
enthusiasts,” Featherlite National Sales Manager
Randy Lewis said.
The 40-foot fifth wheel with 12-foot garage
features two space expanding slideouts,
including a 12-foot slideout with sofa sleeper
and dinette and a slideout in the bedroom area.
The new design includes a “stand-up bedroom”
that allows for additional head room to make
moving around easier than in other similar
trailers. It also includes a bedroom “loft” with
a queen bed in the rear of the trailer.
Featherlite Trailers SURV Interior
A kitchen with refrigerator, double sink,
island counter, cooktop stove and oven as well
as a full bathroom with neo-angled shower,
vanity with sink and linen closet complete the
‘Basement’ storage that can be accessed from
the exterior creates additional room for
transporting equipment needed for recreational
activities or camping.
The interior décor including fabrics, woods,
flooring and countertops were custom designed
and installed in-house at Featherlite. As
announced earlier in 2007, Featherlite has
partnered with Sierra Custom Interiors to offer
the new Featherlite/Sierra Interiors Collection.
A number of striking interior options are
available in Featherlite SURVs.
“Featherlite SURVs have been popular with
people enjoying a wide array of outdoor
activities including ATVs, motorcycles, dirt
bikes, dune buggies, off-road vehicles, hunting,
fishing and more,” Lewis said. “The Featherlite
SURV allows them to enjoy the outdoors without
leaving behind the amenities of home.”

In addition to the new Model 7941,
Featherlite’s SURV product line includes Models
7924 and 7943. New options and features on
Featherlite’s existing SURVs include larger and
more solar reflective windows for more privacy
and a cooler interior, standard exterior L.E.D.
lights and standard loading lights over the ramp
for easier nighttime loading. Eye-catching and
weight reducing aluminum treadplate is now
standard on the surface of the SURV ramp. New
standard entertainment features include a flat
screen TV and big sound stereo.
Featherlite has been building all-aluminum
trailers since 1973 for hauling cars, ATVs,
snowmobiles, motorcycles, horses and more.
Featherlite also manufactures race car
transporters for leading professional race car
teams and is the official trailer of NASCAR, IRL
and Champ Car. Featherlite has built its
legendary hauling capacity and impressive
durability into every SURV model.
“Unlike some toy haulers that are made of
steel, fiberglass or wood, Featherlite’s SURV
trailers are manufactured with premium,
corrosion-resistant aluminum that is lighter,
more durable and easier to tow,” Lewis said.
“Featherlite’s construction allows for heavier
load capacity and more years on the road. In
addition, Featherlite SURVs have a lower floor
height that makes loading motorized recreational
vehicles and equipment easier.”
