36 • RV PRO • December 2018 rv-pro.com O R I G I N A L E Q U I P M E N T When Furrion did enter the kitchen market in 2013, its first offerings through its Chef Collection were a modest cooktop and oven. However, the growth of the line has come at the behest of the company's OEM partners. "Their product managers and designers want the ability to purchase complete kitchen suites from one manufacturer that can provide superior performance designed for travel, which utilizing cohesive, cutting-edge design language," says Healey. "Furrion fills that need." Beauty & Ability It's no accident that the company gives equal weight to both the good looks and the high-performance capabilities of its galley appliances. While the exteriors are available in either black or stain- less-steel finishes, a good case in point is the oven/broiler com- binations available as part of the Chef Collection. While most of the models run on LP gas, the company also offers an electric oven option. Healey says that's mainly at the behest of its OEM partners – including Keystone, Heartland, Jayco and Crossroads – but also is due to Furrion's own vision of the future. "Obviously, the OEMs want to provide flexibility and options to their end consumers," Healey says. "However, as RV appli- ances and power systems become more efficient, we also feel that using gas will become a thing of the past. Our electric oven models may be ahead of their time, but the time is coming, and we're ready for it." The same could be said for the company's microwave/ con- vection oven combos, which range in size from 1.5 to 1.7 cubic feet; and for its line of refrigerators, which are available in sizes from compact to 20 cubic feet. Some of the refrigerators run on both propane and electric power, but the company's newest model is 110-volt AC. "Refrigerators are new," Healey says. "We have found there's a need in the marketplace for more energy-efficient, residen- tial-styled refrigerators that are built for travel." Furrion also is now offering two models of 18-inch dish- Healey stands next to just a few of Furrion's newer kitchen appliances, which includes full ranges, microwave ovens, dishwashers and refrigerators.
