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.

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 interior.

‘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.”
