US Lighting Group Inc. today announced that Cortes Campers, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary, received an initial purchase order worth $385,000 from its newest exclusive dealer based in Michigan.
The campers are expected to arrive during the second half of 2022, according to a press release.
“We are excited to expand our exclusive dealer network to include the state of Michigan with an initial order of $385,000. Michigan has close to 500 RV parks, which offer a perfect way to explore Michigan’s beautiful scenery,” said Anthony Corpora, CEO and president of US Lighting Group.
“Over the past three quarters, Cortes Campers has seen an upward trend from RV enthusiasts and first-time buyers wanting to buy a molded fiberglass camper that is lightweight, strong, and durable. To meet demand, Cortes Campers’ goal is to have exclusive dealer representation in nearly every state in the U.S. by the end of summer.”
Corpora said smaller RV travel trailers like the Cortes Campers 17-ft tow-behind are incredibly popular, affordable, and user-friendly. These campers are easier to tow, maintain, and store, giving campers the freedom to travel in remote, off-grid locations.
He said the ‘2022 RV Travel Trends Report’ by Outdoorsy found that first-time RV users are currently the majority of customers, with an estimated 63% of survey respondents preferring to drive than fly.
“With our current forecast, we remain on target to produce the campers required to meet the goal of 20 per week by the fourth quarter of 2022,” Corpora said.
Unlike traditional recreational vehicles, Cortes Campers manufactures RV travel trailers as strong as boats. They build it with only the highest quality fiberglass composites and marine coatings, offering immunity to corrosion and rotting and making it lightweight and strong.
