On this week’s show we head back to the 2018 RV industry Open House in Elkhart, Indiana to check out new offerings that many of the manufacturers are bringing out for next year. We're scouting for ‘What’s Hot for 2019!”.
As we mentioned before, this is an industry only event and it is huge. The Open House stretches from the RVMH Museum and Northern Indiana Convention Center out to County Rd. 17 and up County Rd. 6 for at least a mile. In other words, you have to drive some if you expect to see most of the displays.
Up Rt. 6 is the Forest River facility where we found Jeff Johnston scouting out the NO-Bo (No Boundaries) display where he found their newest model called the “NEST’. What made this model so interesting and obviously where the name Nest came from is the 2-person sleeping tent hanging off the roof!
This tent unit will hold up to 500 lbs and can be easily opened and closed within a minute or so. The Nest is virtually a small toy hauler that allows you to hall a full size ‘quad’ and when the quad is out, the area becomes a good size sleeping area complete with a nice table setup. www.forestriverinc.com
