GOSHEN, Ind. — Keystone RV Company’s Passport Ultra Lite division reached an industry milestone in record time, as the 35,000th Passport trailer rolled off the Goshen assembly line, the company reported in a press release. Celebrating in grand fashion, the Passport sales team handed over the keys to Nathan and Justin Hart of Walnut Ridge Family RV Sales of New Castle, Ind., in front of the whole plant.
First introduced as a 2007 model, Passport’s retail sales hit an all time high in 2014. Product manager Ryan Shuff said, “We have stayed true to the core of the ultra lite market and strived to keep weights low. One hundred percent of the Passport product line is truly half-ton towable, even by older tow vehicles. And we didn’t stop there—today an entire segment of the Passport product line is towable by the new crossover vehicles.”
Comments Walnut Ridge President Nathan Hart, “As a family-owned dealership, it is important to have a partner like Keystone providing us with products that hit the sweet spot of the market. The Passport is dialed-in for today’s buyers. In addition, Keystone gives us the personal attention we believe important to help us better serve our customers. We know that if necessary, we can always call the Keystone factory and get our customers the assistance they need.”
Group General Manager Bren Lauck noted that Passport’s exclusive ultra lite product mix creates increased opportunities.
Lauck said, “With our exclusive focus on ultra lites, Passport dealers can reach a broader market segment, attracting more first time buyers and families with smaller vehicles. We anticipate 2015 to be another banner year for the Passport team.”
