The consumer demand for Fifth Wheel Toy Haulers continues to increase—up 15% in 2015 according to Statistical Surveys, Inc.

Prime Time Manufacturing, a division of Forest River Inc., continues to excel and outpace this segment, nearly doubling its sales totals from 2014.

“Spartan has passed several long standing brands in retail sales, and has become a top 10 Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler brand according to data from Statistical Surveys, Inc.” product manager Adam Smith notes. “Our Spartan Fifth Wheels are up substantially in volume and market share,” Smith said. “In response, we have increased production rates multiple times already this year to keep up with our dealers’ demands who have embraced and promoted the full Spartan line up.”

In addition to a committed dealer network, adding industry-first floorplans and unique features such as the MORryde Zero Gravity ramp door, ‘Quick Click’ patio kit, LED lit crown molding, StorMor® cabinet doors and a proprietary sound system have helped bolster Spartan sales, according to Smith. “We’ve excelled in all price points, having great success with our affordable 300 Series Spartan line as well. This line has notable features that customers want, such as auto-leveling, high gloss fiberglass, patio kits, fuel tanks with nozzle, and plush residential furniture, but at much more attainable price point than other Fifth Wheel Toy Haulers.”

Prime Time Manufacturing is a division of Forest River, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company.  Prime Time offers towable recreational vehicles under the brand names of Avenger, Crusader, Fury, LaCrosse, Sanibel, Spartan, and Tracer and is located in Wakarusa, IN.
