Workhorse platform used for first Forest River toy hauler motor home

UNION CITY, Ind. (June 6, 2008) "” Responding to customer interest, Forest River has introduced its first toy hauler motor home "” the Georgetown GTX "” and packed it with best-in-class value. That value begins with the Workhorse W22 chassis, sporting 22.5-inch aluminum wheels, as the standard 22,000 lb. GVWR platform. The GTX built on the W22 will be the base model chassis.

The 36-foot GTX made its debut at a recent RV show in San Diego, where it pulled in several retail sales. Features include an extra-large 11-foot by 8-foot garage to provide more room for "tall toys"¯ such as four-wheel-drive, roll-bar ATVs. Two opposing slideouts open up a spacious front interior with a dinette and hide-a-bed sofa. Kitchen amenities include an extra-large 30-inch stainless steel microwave, an extra-large nine-foot stainless steel refrigerator, solid surface countertops and stainless steel oven with covered burners. Halogen lighting brightens the living area, which also features a big 32-inch TV. It has linoleum flooring throughout.

"We know many of our customers have been looking for a toy hauler from us. With more people seeking convenient ways to pursue their outdoor adventures, we thought this was a good time to diversify our product offering,"¯ said Art Colvin, general manager of Forest River. "The GTX is a simple and elegantly functional design with first-class features. Of course, these include the Workhorse chassis with its six-speed Allison transmission and excellent ride and handling."¯

"It's also an excellent value just in terms of what you can pack in the garage, or even the refrigerator, among other things,"¯ said Colvin. The GTX is the only toy hauler with a fiberglass roof. Other notable features include a water purification system, 6.5 kilowatt generator and 50 amp service, 13,500 BTU air conditioner, slideout awnings, gelcoat walls and an exterior hose with nozzle.

Option packages also include either side mount sofa beds or an electric bed lift, cargo screen door, rear spotlights and an exterior entertainment center with another 32-inch LCD TV.

"We're pleased to be part of what should be a hot new toy hauler,"¯ said Bill Walmsley, Workhorse director of RV marketing. "RVers are getting a lot for their money with the GTX. That Forest River is offering the Workhorse W22 as the standard base model chassis makes it an even more valuable offering."¯

The Georgetown GTX is now arriving on dealer lots. Suggested MSRP for the standard model is $97,605.
