POMONA, Calif. — For the first time at any recreation vehicle show, consumers at the 2014 California RV Show in Pomona will have the opportunity to watch a 19-foot-long toy hauler trailer being built from the ground up.
No other RV show organizers, until now, have asked a manufacturer to build a trailer on location right before the eyes of consumers. But that’s exactly what the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), which puts on the RV Show, has asked Genesis Supreme RV, a toy hauler and RV trailer manufacturer located in Perris, California, to do.
“I want people to see for themselves how RVs are constructed because they most often only see the finished product,” said Tom Gaither, western show director. Pablo Carmona, president of Genesis Supreme RV, will be part of the team building the trailer and answering questions from RV enthusiasts.
On taking up the challenge Carmona said, “We are very excited to let consumers see every detail of how we build a toy hauler trailer. They should know how their trailer is built so we will be there to show them.”
The staff at Genesis Supreme will be fully prepared by having all their materials and tools ready to begin construction. The task includes preparing the chassis, setting the flooring, installing the wiring and plumbing, followed by building all the cabinets, installing appliances, and then finishing up with the side walls and rooftop. Gaither will apply the final RVIA seal as the finishing touch.
The first stages of construction will be done on the following days: Oct. 10, 11, and 12 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from 11am to 3 pm. This will be prepping the chassis with flooring, placing the electrical, installing the plumbing, appliances and cabinet building. On Wednesday, Oct. 15 the sidewalls and windows will be prepped for mounting.
Then on Oct.17, 18 and 19 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) the sidewalls and overhead cabinets will be installed. A special walk thru for attendees will be held on Saturday between 10 am to 1 pm to witness close-up the details of the build. On Sunday, the final graphics will be applied, the Genesis Inspection Team will approve the final build, and Gaither will apply the RVIA seal.
