Featured OEM Customer - Fleetwood RV, Inc.
Fleetwood RV, Inc., headquartered in Decatur, Ind., is a leading manufacturer of Class A and Class C recreational vehicles, and was recognized as the number one manufacturer of Class A motor homes in calendar year 2009 by Statistical Surveys, Inc., a reporting service based in Grand Rapids, Mich.
MCD began their relationship with Fleetwood when they started supplying MCD American Solo™ windshield shades to Fleetwood back in June of 2008 for their popular Class A, Southwind model motorhomes. The 2009 model year Southwinds featured the windshield night shade, which doubled as a visor when driving.
In October of 2009, Fleetwood expanded their utilization of American Solo™ windshield shades into the new 2010 gas powered Class A, Encounter, calling this unit their “crossover” RV.
Also in October of 2009, the diesel powered Discovery and Providence motorhomes joined the line-up, featuring MCD American Duo™ day/night house shades as an option in the 2010 models. Both coaches are very popular sellers for Fleetwood.
Fleetwood Expands the use of MCD Products for 2010-11 Models
Currently, MCD American Duo™ Day/Night house shades are scheduled for inclusion in most of the Fleetwood brand diesel line of coach models.
John Draheim, CEO and president of Fleetwood RV, Inc. said “As a whole, we strive to work with the best suppliers in the industry in order to give our dealers and customers the high-quality features they expect to see in a Fleetwood RV motor home. MCD Shades is a well-trusted brand in the industry, and we are happy to include them on our motor home products.”
The MCD American Duo™ proprietary ClearView™ solar shade fabric dramatically reduces the amount of UV rays and heat that enter a coach, while providing day time privacy and outward visibility. The MCD night shade fabrics provide 100% light-blockage and room-darkening capability.
“Fleetwood RV customers with the new American Duo™ Shade System will immediately recognize the benefits of this high-tech total privacy window shade solution that replaces conventional curtains, sun visors, and pleated shades,” noted Dave Townsley, CEO of MCD Innovations. “We look forward to continued collaboration with Fleetwood RV to provide quality products that meet the needs of RV owners.”
MCD shade systems can be designed to fit any new or existing motorcoach, Class B/C recreational vehicle or fifth wheel. For more information regarding the benefits and features of the MCD American Duo™ shade technology for your RV, contact MCD Innovations at 800-804-1757.
