24 • RV PRO • December 2019 rv-pro.com O R I G I N A L E Q U I P M E N T Furrion Dazzles with Concept Vehicles Furrion's new Limitless 2.0 fifth wheel is just the latest concept vehicle from the company. The supplier has made a name for itself in the RV and marine industries by highlighting what's possible to include in futuris- tic-looking vehicles loaded to the max with Furrion technology and products, combining smart living solutions with sophisticated design for a luxury mobile lifestyle experience. Previous concept vehicles have included: • Limitless, a concept fifth wheel featuring a full suite of Furrion stainless-steel appliances, including full-sized side-by-side refrigerator, a built-in oven, a gas cooktop and hood, a convection microwave, an induction cooktop island and a compact dishwasher. Additionally, Limitless has a 48-bottle wine fridge that can also double as extra food storage space. Limitless also features Furrion's tankless water system, offering hot water on demand. • Hercules, a futuristic semi-truck boasting 22 torque of towing capacity, which was specifically built to tow Limitless. Hercules features its own luxury living quarters behind the main cab and is fitted with a 100-watt solar panel and lithium-ion battery system that can power the compact living quarters when the generator is turned off. • Elysium, a concept Class A motorhome equipped with a helicopter landing pad and hot tub on its roof. The motorhome also came fully loaded with Furrion kitchen appliances and electronics. • Adonis, a 78-foot customized luxury Numarine yacht equipped with artificial intelligence offering virtual concierge service. The yacht comes well-equipped with Furrion amenities. Why does Furrion invest so much time and resources into concept vehicles? "Well, it's a lot of fun for us," Matt Fidler, co-founder and CMO of Furrion, says with a laugh. "But, that aside, we do it because it engages the whole team in a project, where they get to share and create ideas that help define the future of mobile living. And then we test it in real-world applications. ... Ultimately, using these products inspires more new ideas and inspires the overall direction of the company. It's invaluable to us." And don't expect Limitless 2.0 to be the last concept vehicle from Furrion, Fidler adds. "We can't stop thinking about it," he says of pondering new concept possibilities. "That's what it means to be innovative." Furrion has a long history of producing concept vehicles.
