Motorhome manufacturer Chinook Motorcoach Corporation, based in Elkhart, Indiana, has acquired Von Liche Manufacturing (VLM), builders of RPM toy haulers, and Dream and Riverside trailers. The sporty RPM boasts heavy-duty construction that, according to the manufacturer, includes thicker floors, higher rated axles and tires, and rubber diamond-plate flooring and 5,000-pound-rated tie-downs in the cargo areas.
Eight travel trailer floorplans currently in the RPM line range from 18 to 36 feet, and a 33-foot fifth-wheel was recently introduced; additional floorplans will follow. The RPM’s 8-foot, 4-inch-wide body allows for space to carry ATVs, quads and side-by-side vehicles, with cargo areas up to 17 feet long and ramp doors that can handle 3,000 pounds. The fifth-wheel has an unloaded vehicle weight of 8,580 pounds and a claimed 4,820-pound cargo carrying capacity.
Interior decor choices include traditional farm-style maple cabinetry or a billet interior that features gray-and-aluminum cabinet doors. Standard are a 6-cubic-foot gas/electric or 10.6-cubic-foot 12-volt DC refrigerator.
Other standard features include a power A-frame jack, aluminum hybrid entry steps, porcelain toilets, power awning with LED light strips and a 15,000-Btu air conditioner in all units longer than 20 feet. Available options include a fuel station, a ramp-patio system, a generator and even a built-in air compressor for camping in the boonies.
RPM toy haulers have a starting retail price in the upper teens. Larger slideout-equipped models have MSRPs starting in the upper $20,000s to low $30,000s.
