queen size “Hide-a-Loft” bed that powers down electronically from over
the cockpit.

Introduced at the recent Louisville Show, Encounter also has an
optional “Bunk Bed-n-Breakfast” that converts a two-person dinette into
bunk beds. Encounter features include pass-through storage, heated
holding tanks and luggage compartment, rear-vision camera with monitor
and water filtration. MSRPs start at $81,263.

Also for 2010, Fleetwood introduced its first 45-foot quad-slide,
side-aisle floorplan in the luxury American Tradition diesel pusher
along with a 2010 American Heritage with 450 square feet of living space
and a 40-foot full-wall-slide floorplan in the Discovery diesel pusher.
