As the demand for more fuel efficiency grows, so too does the demand for lighter RVs.

Lightweight RVs can be towed with smaller vehicles – including light duty trucks, SUVs, crossovers, and even sedans. From the materials used to the shape and aerodynamics, lightweight RVs are designed to keep towing weight down, sometimes reducing it by thousands of pounds. And it’s all without compromising the features that make you feel at home on the road and the durability that can stand up to trip after trip.
