Variety is the spice of life, they say, and Dutchmen has taken that to heart by offering 24 floorplans in its Kodiak travel-trailer line. The 2017 Kodiak comes in three price points — Ultimate, Express and Express Expandable — in variations with no slideouts to up to three of the expandable rooms. Models range from floorplans that sleep two to those that can accommodate a large family plus guests. Buyers can choose from expandable and bunkhouse models with queen beds, amidships or rear lavatories, kitchen islands and outdoor kitchens.
The Kodiak reflects a residential feel with radius custom cabinets and light-colored solid-surface countertops backlit with LEDs. All models feature light and bright interiors with large windows and skylights, 6-foot-8-inch ceilings, stainless-steel appliances, bedrooms with pocket doors and a variety of interior-decor options. Also standard are solar prep, an outside sprayer, magnetic baggage door catches, a black-tank flush, and a heated and enclosed underbelly. Dutchmen says its Kodiak lineup offers the largest pass-through storage compartments and doors in this segment.
Construction details include laminated walls covering an aluminum frame, which the company claims gives the Kodiak high structural integrity while making it one of the lightest in the industry, with weights ranging from 3,200 to 7,700 pounds. Lengths range from 18 feet 6 inches on the 172E, to 37 feet 3 inches on the 330BHSL (52-gallon freshwater tank), with base MSRPs ranging from $16,000 to $39,000.
