Ford introduces a new line of trailers and campers for explorers image

Ford is the first original equipment manufacturer to offer an extended line of licensed travel trailers, toy haulers and truck campers for you to explorer the countryside.

There are many enthusiasts planning to leave their worries and homes behind while embarking on a travel around the country to discover new places and to feel free. All they need is to hook up their trailers and go wherever the road leads them. Ford Truck customers looking to explore America’s open roads can now take the comforts of home with them with an all-new lineup of Ford licensed and approved toy haulers, travel trailers and slide-in campers. “Exploring America is in our customers’ DNA and recreational vehicles are part of Ford’s history, so these new camping options are great for our adventurous customers,” said Mark Bentley, Ford Licensing manager. The new Ford-branded truck campers and travel trailers are licensed and built by Indiana-based Livin Lite, a subsidiary of Thor Industries. Known for using strong, lightweight aluminum alloy in its products, Livin Lite’s Ford offerings will also be made out of the advanced material to save weight and offer resistance to rust and rot.

Ford slide-in truck campers will be offered for 6- and 8-foot truck beds, while the first travel trailers and toy haulers will be offered in 22- and 24-foot lengths. Additional products, including longer fifth-wheel trailers and shorter pop-up campers, are also planned. The RVs were designed by Livin Lite in conjunction with Ford Truck Design and the two teams worked together over the past 15 months to create such recreational vehicles. Among the key exterior features are a unique front nose with an F-Series-inspired front window, F-Series-style wheels and Ford Blue Oval side graphics, while inside one will find styling cues from the F-Series Lariat, including unique leathers and stitched Ford Blue Ovals in seat cushions. Ford Truck campers will be available through certified Livin Lite dealers starting in early 2016, while the travel trailers and toy haulers will be available by the second quarter of 2016.
