Fleetwood RV Debuts 2005 Pace Arrow with 23’ Slide-Out

Fleetwood RV, a leading producer of recreational vehicles, revealed its spacious 2005 Pace Arrow full-wall-slide floor plan at the 42nd Annual National RVIA tradeshow in Louisville, KY, November 30 – December 2, 2004.

The 2005 Pace Arrow with the SpacePlus™ environment features a 30” deep full-wall-slide system and 84” floor-to-ceiling height. This slide system creates an unprecedented level of openness throughout the coach, including a spacious aisle way to the large bedroom suite.

“The 2005 Pace Arrow full-wall-slide floor plan sets a new standard in space and comfort on a high-end Class A gas motor home,” said Chris Braun, Executive Vice President of Fleetwood RV. “After a year of development and rigorous validation testing, Fleetwood’s patent pending full-wall-slide system is positioned to elevate consumer expectations for space and comfort in all RV industry segments.”

The new Pace Arrow 36D floor plan with an expansive 340 square feet of living space provides a wider living area from front to back. Adding to the floor plan’s residential feel, the 23’ side slide-out room features a freestanding dinette, stainless steel double-door refrigerator, hide-a-bed sofa, and enormous bedroom wardrobe. Other unique floor plan features include a luxury curved shower and elegant sliding French glass doors separating the bedroom suite for privacy. An electronic-flush Tecma Silence Plus macerator toilet helps reduce water consumption for extended stays.

The Pace Arrow can be ordered with an optional Workhorse W24 chassis, rated at a 24,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight. The 340-horsepower Votec™ engine and Allison 2100 MH transmission provide ample power to handle extra payload and 6,000 lb. towing capacity. The Pace Arrow is available with DuPont basecoat and clear coat high-gloss finishes in six full-body-paint color schemes.

The new Pace Arrow full-wall-slide units will be available on dealers’ lots by mid-February 2005. For more information on this exciting new offering or any other Fleetwood RV product, please call 877-308-7644 or visit www.fleetwoodrv.com.
