rv-pro.com September 2018 • RV PRO • 47 cabinet pulls and new linoleum color. The exterior will be an all-new millennial silver metal with a new graphics package that includes the Shasta wings. A new upgraded package option on deep-slide units is called the "Step Up Package" and includes a glass cooktop stove and oven, comforter bedspread, aluminum wheels, Solid Step by Lippert, power tongue jack and XL exterior grab handle. Lantz says new floorplans include the 25RK, which added a new entertainment area and linen closet. The 25RS, 26BH and 26DB have an added top double-bunk standard that was previously an option. The 30QB and 310K have been revised to increase the slide depth to a deep-slide, along with adding 2-by-3 floor construction and in-floor ducted heat. The 27BH has revised the bathroom/bedroom to make the bathroom on the passenger side with an entry door. Lantz says Shasta also is making a commitment to stronger web marketing and will include virtual 360s of every inte- rior, more than 25 photos of every floorplan, video of every floorplan, and a link to online owner's manuals with pictures and "How-To," information on the website. There also will be a downloadable Shasta RV App. Coachmen Laminated Trailers Coachmen's Apex and Freedom Express travel trailer lines will be showcasing a mix of new and updated products for dealers during this year's Open House Week event.
