W hen inTech RV launched in 2016 with a small, light- weight camping trailer, it leveraged a strong DNA and design inspiration from its older sibling, inTech Trailers, which has manufactured custom all-aluminum motorsport trailers and more since 2010. "We determined that our style, build, attention to detail and quality presented an opportunity for us in the smaller RV and over-road market," says Keith Fishburn, inTech RV product and sales manager. "There's a lot of crossover between inTech Trailers and inTech RV, from the design team to the craftsmen who build both 53-foot car haulers down to a 10-foot RV." From inTech RV's first product introduction, with its Flyer line in 2016, it has since added the Luna, Sol and, most recently, the Terra – all of which are uniquely built on a full-aluminum cage Crossover Lightweights inTech RV brings innovations and fresh design builds to its small, lightweight trailers for those who like off-grid experiences, as well as traditional camping. By Rob Merwin rv-pro.com February 2021 • RV PRO • 11 construction. The travel trailers' design and strong constructions cater to RVers who seek the ability to go both off the grid and on traditional camping excursions while maintaining features and amenities that can offer more creature comforts. "Our goal is to be the best," Fishburn says of the Nappanee, Ind.-based manufacturer. "We want to provide a top-quality product for the best value. "As we move from design to manufacturing, we always ask ourselves, 'What's best for the customer? What are the items that make the most sense, are the most helpful, last the longest and make their experience the most enjoyable?'" Asked how best to characterize an inTech RV trailer in terms of automotive offerings – say, a Cadillac, Ford or Chevy – Fishburn chuckles, "Maybe something foreign or a little different than what one would typically see daily on the road – sporty boutique." The Flyer Takes Off The Flyer line is intended to be overly simplistic in design with minimal systems. It can be taken off-road and can be easily added onto and modified, from solar packages and off-road features to shower systems and portable toilets. "It's highly accessorizable, very similar to a Jeep," Fishburn says. "In fact, the number of Flyer owners that also drive a Jeep is through the roof." Bolt-on accessories can include RotopaX products, shovels and axes attached to its roof rack, roof-top tents, and numerous "over- landing" features. The first three models of the Flyer – Chase, Pursue, and Explore – weigh in at less than 2,000 pounds, while the Discover model is about 2,700 pounds with a "toy hauler-type setup." Luna Shines Light on Amenities The Flyer was soon followed in 2018 by inTech's teardrop, Luna, which offers a more finished and refined product that market research showed some customers desired. Whereas Flyer users generally want to perform their own unit modifications, the Luna offers another level of amenities already in place but can still cross back and forth between off-grid camping and traditional campground locations. "Once we made that little teardrop Luna (1,800 pounds), people really started to notice us," Fishburn says. "It has a unique shape Carving a Niche in
