Monaco RV LLC Introduces New Aluma-Lite FWS Class C

For Immediate Release

Holiday Rambler Debuts Aluma-Lite
Class C Full Wall-Slide Coach

COBURG, OR, March 10, 2011 Monaco RV, one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of recreational vehicles, announces the debut of the new Holiday Rambler Aluma-Lite 31SFD Class C. This small–in-stature model is a crossover of a Class C and Class A floorplan. The expansive 23-foot Full-Wall Slide-Out floorplan provides the roominess of a Class A layout by enormously enlarging the living, kitchen and bedroom space. The Full-Wall Slide also provides a private bath, with dual private entrances through bedroom or hall, an option usually only found in Class A models.

“No other manufacturer is offering this type of crossover, with a Class A floorplan on a Class C chassis,’ this according to Scott Jacobson, National Sales Manager for Holiday Rambler. “The Aluma-Lite 31SFD is part of Holiday Rambler’s new direction, as we develop floorplans with more functional spaces in smaller, less expensive models.”

The family-friendly, easy to maneuver Holiday Rambler Aluma-Lite 31SFD is built on the Ford E-Series Chassis with E450 engine. For improved fuel economy, the Aluma-Lite front cap is aerodynamically designed to reduce wind turbulence and drag. The battery access is built into the entryway for easy maintenance, along with a 5,000 pound hitch for towing
Along with the large Full-Wall Slide-Out, the Aluma-Lite 31SFD is also built with large size features. A king-size 51-gallon fresh water tank allows for extended camping capabilities, a critical component with today’s RV’ers. The extra-large exterior bay stores all equipment in a central, convenient location. Entry into the Aluma-Lite is made easy with an extra-wide entrance door. Inside, Class A-style features make the Aluma-Lite feel spacious. The Full-Wall Slide-Out allows for an expansive kitchen boasting a booth dinette with a pop-up 26-inch TV with lift in a dinette console, making it storable when not in use.

For more details on the Aluma-Lite Class C, along with information on Holiday Rambler’s full line of products, please visit Holiday Rambler: A Premier RV Manufacturer.

That's a mighty nice Class C layout. Maybe someday soon when I get tired of jockeying around all this iron I will get something like this. Would be a lot easier in and out of places for sure.

Having owned a 31' Winnebago class C with NO slides, I cannot see how that unit will have very much cargo carrying capacity. If you are interested in one, insist it be weighed for actual weights before you sign on the dotted line.

Our Winnebago was 13950#, with me, copilot, full fuel, 1/4 tank of fresh water and a weeks worth of clothes and supplies. Adding the two slides will add weight and probably push it over the new 14,500#.

Ken, that was my first reaction as well - probably a very small gap between UVW and GVWR.
