Every year, in mid-September, the largest consumer RV show takes place in Hershey, PA. One of the units that impressed me was a new floor plan from Redwood. I thought it was worth highlighting.

This sizeable fifth wheel is a four-season, full-timing unit and has to be described as simply luxurious. The company says that Redwood, as a brand, was created in 2010 to provide the exploding Baby Boomer market with a fifth luxury wheel at an affordable price. Of course, what they don’t say is retiring Baby Boomers; and in truth, I’m one of them. I suppose that’s why this unit caught my attention.

Interiors that are as spacious as they are elegant

Redwood describes its build philosophy this way, “The elegant interiors that set us apart from other manufacturers and the quality of what we use to achieve the look on the inside is just as important as what we use on the outside and underneath where you might not notice at first glance. We insist on meticulously installing all the components and sub-structures to create a solid foundation of reliability and durability. This, combined with the beautiful interior fabrics, custom cabinetry and cutting-edge technology, makes for an incomparably finished luxury fifth wheel unrivalled in the industry”.

That description of the build quality aside, space inside this luxury RV was a clear priority. They achieve this by building long, tall and low. The new 4200 FL I looked at is 44 feet long and has a height of 13’6” (same as a standard transport trailer). In addition, a forward drop frame chassis adds to the basement storage.

The FL in the designation stands for “Forward Living Room.” This is a layout feature that only truly works if you have the space and the height. In this Redwood, you have both. Another vital buying feature of Redwood is its online build tool.

Recognizing that individualization is essential at this price point, Redwood gives you many options that you can add. You can also delete, as your taste dictates.

It’s worth running down the list of just some of the standard items included in a Redwood. This list speaks to its use as a real full-timer’s unit.

Look at the Redwood – even if you never own one, it’s fun to look at. I hope you enjoy the videos from Hershey. It was a great show, and I plan to attend again next year.
