Pilgrim International, Inc., First RV Manufacturer to Offer 5-Year Warranty
MIDDLEBURY, Ind., May 1 2008 -- Pilgrim International, Inc. is pleased to offer the RV Industry's first 5-Year Warranty on all flooring systems utilizing the CosmoLite composite substrate.
"Traditionally, water has been the culprit in the deterioration of most RV floors," stated Dave Hoefer, Co-founder and Chairman of Pilgrim International. "Even a small amount of moisture resting on the floor of a traditional camper can result in a soft spot, and ultimately lead to instability. The multi- million dollar investment in new materials and technology has paved the path to the 5-Year warranty; this is a clear and decisive indication that we have a commitment to the future of the RV industry. We stand behind our product and we are very proud to be the first and only RV manufacturer in the world that can offer such guarantees to the end-consumer."
Pilgrim began manufacturing floors utilizing the new CosmoLite composite substrates in October of last year. It has since been featured in many articles and publications, from transportation and travel magazines to environmental white papers.
"The very nature of the composite material makes it impervious to rot, mildew and mold," commented Doug Lantz, Vice President of Product Development. "It was really a by-product of our quest to use stronger, lighter materials." CosmoLite is also a formaldehyde-free product with no out-gassing of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and is completely recyclable.
The CosmoLite Composite material is three times stronger than the traditional wood substrates it replaces. These factors result in the ability to offer a warranty that reflects the strength and durability of the materials now utilized.
"The floors are really just the first step in the process to manufacture a travel trailer that replaces wood in all six sides and becomes the first Green eco-friendly trailer," commented Hoefer. "It is part of our original vision of continuous improvement to remain the forerunner in product innovation that will revolutionize the recreational vehicle industry."
