Just when you thought you’d seen every possible floorplan combination in a fifth-wheel
trailer, Fleetwood debuts its new upscale Triumph model. Randy Most, Fleetwood’s
product-development manager, says of the largest Triumph: “This model is aimed at the
second- or third-time buyer who is looking to step up for additional high-end features and
appeal.” The Triumph 395RL5S utilizes a welded-aluminum frame, side walls, roof-truss
construction, block-foam insulation and a seamless one-piece rubber roof, and the side
walls now have pinch-rolled fiberglass for a high-gloss look. Triumph uses MOR/ryde
suspension as standard equipment for improved handling and a “50 percent better ride than
leaf springs,” according to Most. Incorporating residential styling cues, Fleetwood’s first
dropped-rear living room anchors the rear of this floorplan with dark-wood cabinetry and
trim. The foldout sofa in one slide expands the living area, with the fireplace and
entertainment center in another slide. Both flank a large rear-window wall that floods the
room with light, and a pair of wooden French doors offers seclusion in the living room.
Windsor birch cabinetry with raised-panel doors throughout the galley, solid-surface
countertops set at residential height and hardwood flooring are standard. A carpeted
free-standing dining area in the third slide is located opposite the well-appointed
kitchen, and a breakfast counter with stools rounds out the meal seating, depending on
mood. A large open-bath arrangement forms the entry to the 115-square-foot master suite,
with the fourth and fifth slides, queen or king bed and vanity with the curbside
entertainment center and wardrobe. A second fireplace can be ordered. Outside, the Triumph
395RL5S provides 148 cubic feet of exterior storage, which should satisfy most cargo
requirements, and payload capacity is quoted near 2,400 pounds. Fleetwood Enterprises Inc.,
