Pilgrim International begins producing composite RVs
Exclusive Introduction Event Scheduled for Key RV Dealerships
Pilgrim International, Inc. (Pilgrim) announced today that it will be unveiling the RV industry's first production built composite units at a special "invitation only" event to be held on June 25th. The day will include a tour of the manufacturing facilities where the composite travel trailers and fifth wheels are being produced, followed by a grand unveiling of the new ULTIMA(C) ComposiLite and SUPRA(C) ComposiLite brands. "This is the most excited I have ever been in my thirty years in this industry," commented Dave Hoefer, Founder of Pilgrim International. "These units are the beginning of a revolution in the RV industry. They are so much lighter and stronger than anything (this industry) has ever seen."
"The weight savings by replacing wood with CosmoLite composites is so dramatic that we are able to use less steel in the chassis." Continued Hoefer, "In fact, we have one fifth wheel floor plan where just the chassis itself is six hundred pounds lighter!"
Interest in the composite RVs has spiked since Pilgrim showed the first prototype model at the Industry's Trade show last November. "It was really a 'perfect storm' of circumstances that has created so much excitement in our composite program," said Doug Lantz, Chief Operating Officer. "The rising cost of fuel has created a demand for lighter weight products, the fact that the composite materials are formaldehyde free, and our commitment to these units being Eco-friendly culminated in a huge wave of interest."
Key RV dealerships from the United States and Canada will be in attendance as well as many of the key supplier-partners responsible for the creation of the Composite units. The event is being held at Spring Meadow Golf Course in Middlebury, Indiana. Additional event information or requests for invitations are available by contacting VP of Marketing Jerry Sell at (574) 825-8686.
