64 • RV PRO • September 2020 RV PRO ➤ NEW MODEL YEAR PREVIEW point," he says. "Our MSRPs are currently in the $120,000 to $130,000 range and the Reserve hits the mid-$90,000s. Our quality on that piece is very high. We don't sacrifice. We still offer 3-inch walls, hardwood styles in cabinetry and trim work. We have four floorplans in that Reserve segment." The Riverstone Reserve features modern décor with white cabinetry. SUNSEEKER | FORESTER With a complete overhaul last year, Sunseeker and Forester will stay the course with the changes, including two Vermont Oak wood decors, a lighter contemporary look and a Black Diamond Walnut option. "This year we're going to do a couple modifications. We're changing our interior cabs from both Ford and Chevrolet to a gray interior, when in years past we had a tan interior. The gray will match the rear of the unit," says Kary Katzenberger, product manager. "We're trying to make the coach flow together and look good together overall. We're tweaking interiors and have some new furniture ideas for both sofas and booth dinette cushions to give it a little more contemporary feel." Both the Sunseeker and Forester MBS lines are offering an auto-level system and new full-body paint for Forester classic options. "There are nice changes in terms of power. Mercedes has heated swivel seats and a new 10-inch information radio that has Sirius XM, satellite and 'Hey Mercedes,' like Siri or Google. They've come out with some new safety features as well, including speed sensitive and adaptive cruise control," he says. The Sunseeker 2400T and Forester 2401T floorplans offer a Murphy bed, large kitchen and rear bath. "There's lots of storage for a 24-foot unit, open floorplan, lots of open seating and is available with both the B+ Trekker option or cab-over-mat with queen-size-bed sleeping capacity over the head," says Katzenberger. Those floorplans are avail- able in the MBS line. A new floorplan will be released first quarter of 2021 in the Ford Transit series, which features an eco-boost engine on the cutaway chassis, giving more power and the ability to add more to transit floorplans than in previous years. "We're excited about 2021 with the Ford Transits; we think we'll see a huge pickup in demand for that. Everything's trending smaller," Katzenberger says. Meanwhile, there will be an all-wheel-drive chassis for Ford Transit or four-wheel-drive cutaway. "The overall engine changes on the Ford have given us the ability to build a bigger and heavier unit because they've increased their GVWRs. It's been very limited in the past. We now have an option against the B van. It's very similar in size to a B van for a lot less money with Ford Transit," he says. DYNAMAX The newest addition to the Dynamax lineup is the all-new Europa series with three to four floorplans. "Basically, Europa is the name that started it all for Dynamax, so that name is back," says Tony Anagnos, product manager. The Europa is built on a Freightliner M2-106 B chassis, with a Cummins 6.7-liter turbo diesel engine, 800 pounds of torque and a 3200 series Allison transmission. "It answers the consumers' call for a compact Super C," he says. "We keep hearing everyone wants short. We feel it will be one of the shortest floorplans available on a Freightliner chassis. Even though it's short, it will pack a pretty good punch." The 31SS floorplan features a walk-around king-size bed, a 16-cubic-foot residential fridge, a large 36-inch by 36-inch shower, an optional overhead cab and maximum towing capacity of 12,000 pounds. It also will include an 8,000-kilowatt Onan generator and have a 2,800-watt pure sine wave inverter. The Super C has a dual-ducted low-profile 15,000-BTU air conditioner, a Winegard Connect 2.0 antenna, a tankless water heater, a combo washer and dryer, and the option to add two, 100-watt solar panels. PREVIEW For 2021, Dynamax is introducing the all- new Europa Super C motorhome, built on a Freightliner M2 chassis and powered by a Cummins 6.7-lter turbo diesel engine.
