Fleetwood Enterprises' RV Group, a leading producer of recreational vehicles, today announced the debut of its 2008 Icon and Pulse Class C diesel motor homes, featuring the new Dodge(R) Sprinter chassis. With two spacious floor plans available at launch, the 2008 Icon and Pulse were unveiled to dealer representatives at Fleetwood's National Dealer Meeting in Las Vegas, Nev. on August 27-29, 2007.
Initial floor plan selections on Icon and Pulse include large single slide-outs with a choice of a full-width rear bathroom (24A), or rear bedroom with double bed (24D).
Fleetwood's motor home product planning and development team conducted several phases of primary research for Icon and Pulse, including feedback sessions with RV dealers and consumers.
"When we were in the planning stages for Icon and Pulse, we relied on the voice of the customer to help us home in on areas where our innovative spirit could make an impact in this growing Class C segment," said Paul Eskritt, President of Fleetwood's RV Group. "Accordingly, the 2008 Icon and Pulse feature the innovative function and high-style characteristics for which Fleetwood is well-known."
Exterior highlights on Icon and Pulse include the Mercedes-Benz(R) 6-cylinder, 3.0L turbo-diesel engine for increased fuel-efficiency, pass-through storage, up to 138" long slide-outs for increased living space, highly-styled front cap, and standard DuPont (R) full-body paint.
Interior highlights include contoured, European-style cabinetry; Corian(R) countertops; Jensen(R) 19" LCD HDTV; as well as contemporary interior dcor options.
The 2008 Icon and Pulse will be available at Fleetwood RV dealerships nationwide in late October 2007. For more information, call 1-800-322-8216 or visit http://www.fleetwoodrv.com/.
