40 • RV PRO • November 2019 rv-pro.com O P E N H O U S E C O V E R A G E Lance 2075 Ultra-light Travel Trailer Despite its small exterior shell, Lance Camper's 2075 ultra- light travel trailer takes mighty strides in delivering an open and reliable RV experience. What immediately captivated dealers with the 2020 model – which wears the manufacturer's newly redesigned clean and modern logo – was rear exterior, slide-out kitchen with a Dometic cooler in a drawer. It doesn't hurt having a rear, retractable awning to keep the chef out of the sun. In terms of openness, the Lance 2075 model, with an overall length of nearly 25 feet, utilizes its popular Stargazer, curved front window. The acrylic, tinted thermopane Euro window paired with a curved bathroom wall leading to the bedroom, creates an optical illusion of more space. Given the U-shaped dinette on the opposite side of the trailer, RVers are enabled to bask in whatever outdoor surroundings they find themselves in. "The beauty of this model is that, although its only 20 feet (in box length), there's good separation from the bedroom and the living area," says Gary Conley, national sales manager. "A lot of customers like the rear living area because they have full view." Updates abound for modern travelers with USB ports, a wire- less charger for smartphones, portable Bluetooth speaker, 12-volt outlets, and other efficiencies like ASA Electronics' iN-Command Control Systems with Global Connect technology. The system, which allows Android and iPhone users to access select features from virtually anywhere, is now compatible with select 2019 and 2020 GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado trucks. "For a lot of dealers who didn't go to RVX, this is their first chance to see it," says Conley, referring to the 2075's debut in March at the Salt Lake City trade show. "The key to any travel trailer is to be as small as you can be, and yet have all the conveniences." Roof rack storage allows for canoes, paddleboard, kayaks, and most other outdoor gear. Given its overall height of 10 feet, the frontal air-resistance for towing is kept to a minimum. It's also capable of additional solar panels, lithium battery packs, inverters, and a portable generator. The Driftwood gray cabinetry and self-closing drawers add to the overall sleekness the travel trailer exhibits. Wine storage next to a dinette with Euro telescoping, adjustable from all directions to let anyone squeeze through. It also lowers, allowing for nearly another queen-sized bed. And the 2075 fits a dry bath with a high-rise, single lever faucet and a glass washbowl that screams quality. What impressed RV PRO: With a base MSRP of $45,000 and weight of about 4,000 pounds, this travel trailer is well- suited for newer RVers with SUVs or veteran customers wanting big features in a tight package. With a dinette that slides like a tile game and a slide-out kitchen in the back exterior of the trailer, the petite Lance 2075 packs more surprises than a magician. The roof rack storage and ASA iN-Command system are just two notable features that help this trailer stand out from the crowd.
