Australian-based Swagman Motorhomes has begun production of a new line
of Class A’s designed to meet the growing demand for more fuel-efficient
and environmentally friendly motorhomes. The company plans to bring its
28-foot-long rear-diesel-pusher RV2801 model to the North American
market this year.
According to the company, the RV2801 has a patented
“Armour-shell” one-piece carbon fiber/Kevlar body construction, which is
lighter and eight times stronger than traditional construction, and
achieves an estimated 15—17 mpg. The motorhome rides on the company’s
Space Frame chassis and uses a rear-mounted International MaxxForce 5
V-6 diesel and five-speed Allison transmission.
Additional features include a six air-bag suspension and ABS,
panoramic windshield and wraparound dash, electrically operated leather
seats, integrated full-color touch GPS and backup camera, queen-size bed
and a uniquely designed bathroom with a full-size shower. The RV2801,
as built for the U.S. market, has a projected base msrp of $120,000.
