Airxcel, Inc., in today’s release, presented a portfolio of EV-ready products that are part of its range of manufactured and distributed brands that cater to the RV market.
The EV-ready range includes an entire selection of environmental control and luxury comfort items designed for electric Class B campervans, Class C motorhomes, and travel trailers.
“Airxcel has a legacy of innovation that’s driven us into the EV market,” said Jeff Rutherford, president and CEO of Airxcel.
“It’s a new age for RVs with rapidly expanding options for electric vehicles and increased demand for the use of alternative power sources that let RV enthusiasts boondock with comfort. Product development at Airxcel has focused on pursuing advancements in this exciting and innovative area of RV design to create the best possible products for our customers. We’ve developed new products for this category, and many of our existing products are already ideally suited for the EV market and off-grid camping.”
Making up the range of top-of-the-line products from Airxcel that will be available for future EV capabilities and current boondocking options are Aqua-Hot which has the highest quality hydronic heating system, Coleman-Mach, which has energy-efficient air conditioners, Dicor Products with a complete collection of roofing materials, Maxxair with a deluxe ventilation system, MCD Innovations with motorized RV shades, Suburban with high-end kitchen appliances, and United Shade with insulating window treatments.
“We also have a responsibility to our OEM customers to be responsive to consumer demands,” explained Rutherford. “Right now, we’re seeing an incredible interest from our buyers in all-electric options because they expand the usability and overall comfort of recreational vehicles, especially for boondockers.”
EV-ready models allow for greater fuel independence, with the capability to travel off-grid and off-road without compromising safety or comfort.
Recent trends in the market indicate that the need for new vehicles will surpass the availability of campsites and will make off-grid performance an expectation, not an option for many RVers.
