Fleetwood Debuts Brand-New 2009 Terry LX Fifth Wheel Featuring New Pin Box Design With 90-Degree Turning Radius

    RIVERSIDE, Calif., Sept. 12 /CNW/ -- Fleetwood Enterprises' RV Group, a
leading producer of recreational vehicles, announced the launch of its
brand-new 2009 Terry LX fifth wheel product line. Born from dealer feedback,
the 2009 Terry LX is priced and featured to hit the heart of the fifth wheel
    "Even in this challenging market, the demand for a competitive fifth
wheel product is still very prevalent," said Paul Eskritt, president of
Fleetwood's RV Group. "Over the past several months, we worked with our
dealers to develop a fifth wheel line that will help them be more successful
in the heart of the market. The 2009 Terry LX is that product and with the
ongoing support of our valuable dealer network, we anticipate that it will
quickly become a favorite choice for RVers throughout North America."
    "When Fleetwood was developing the 2009 Terry LX, our dealership teams
offered lots of input during the entire process and Fleetwood listened," said
Craig Little, president of Arbutus RV with five locations in British Columbia,
Canada and a Fleetwood dealer for more than 12 years. "The result is a product
that truly hits the heart of the fifth wheel market. Not only is it in the
right price point, it has the quality and features our customers want and
more. Plus, the recent addition of the new pin box design makes it even more
appealing and easier to sell. They did a fantastic job!"
    During its 2008 National Dealer Meeting, Fleetwood unveiled a new style
of pin box design, which allows a short-bed vehicle to make a 90-degree turn
when towing and docking. Fleetwood added this design as an option in response
to dealer feedback and as an alternative to competitive fifth wheel products
that are limited to an 88-degree turning radius.
    The 2009 Terry LX is built using 5-sided aluminum construction with a
steel truss ceiling and radius roof transition. The stylish two-toned front
and rear caps with raised logo and enhanced graphics offer more eye appeal and
are unlike anything available on the market today. Terry LX also features
aluminum wheels and 50 amp electrical service, which are both standard on all
    Inside the 2009 Terry LX are beautiful interior dC)cors with new
"Mission-Style" cabinets and drawers equipped with contemporary hardware and
hidden hinges to add to the residential appeal. Other interior highlights such
as solid-surface countertops in the galley and bathroom, halogen ceiling
lights with accent lighting throughout, 6'6" bedroom ceiling height,
marbleized shower, walk-in closet, and bedroom fireplace make it hard to leave
Terry LX when the vacation is over.
    The 2009 Terry LX has a full assortment of leading fifth wheel floor
plans ranging in length from 33' 2" to 39' 4", and MSRPs starting around
$46,000 (US Dollars).
