Fleetwood RV Again Hits the Road With John Ratzenberger's Made in America to Highlight Classic American Manufacturers
RIVERSIDE, Calif., April 9 2008 -- Fleetwood Enterprises' RV Group today announced that its Discovery Class A diesel motor home, one of the best-selling diesel motor home brands on the market, will be featured on Season 5 of John Ratzenberger's Made in America. The season premiere aired at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, 2008, on the Travel Channel.
"We are excited about the opportunity to once again feature our diesel motor homes on John Ratzenberger's Made in America," said Paul Eskritt, president of Fleetwood's RV Group. "The show is an ideal place for us to showcase the functionality and style of our most popular diesel motor home brand, Discovery, as well as highlight the many benefits of the RV lifestyle in America."
Fleetwood worked with Creative Differences Productions Inc., the series' production company, to provide two motor homes to serve as recreational and rest space for show host, John Ratzenberger, and the film crew. The Discovery 39S (triple-slide floor plan) and Discovery 39V (full-wall slide floor plan) include standard DuPont(R) full-body paint, Samsung(R) Home Theater surround sound system, and 84" interior ceiling height, making extensive travel time more enjoyable and comfortable.
"We always enjoy working with Fleetwood during the production of John Ratzenberger's Made in America," said Shayne Lewin, the show's supervising producer. "The Discovery served as a wonderful home away from home during the taping of the show. Fleetwood is a quality American company that develops some of the best recreational vehicles available today -- a perfect fit for a show that celebrates Americans and American manufacturing."
