Our product design and engineering philosophy is “If you are not moving forward you’re going backward” This year is probably the most innovative advancement to the Adventurer product line ever… Last year’s 901SB Limited Edition 50th Anniversary model spawned many of these changes. Read below for all of the new 2020 Adventurer Next-Generation features, changes, upgrades and innovations… Even our Logo has changed reflecting our “Next-Generation” innovations & upgrades! We want to thank our many customers and dealers for all of their suggestions, recommendations which have assisted in the development of our Next-Generation Adventurer product.
2020 Model Year Changes
1. New Floorplan – The 901SB floorplan is moving into the standard 2020 Adventurer model lineup. This model will now carry all standard 2020 Adventurer features with one exception; the 901 will still be built with aluminum framing featured and carried over from the “Limited Edition” built last year in celebration of our 50th Anniversary.
2. Adventurer Model year changesa. All Models – ALL New Exterior Colors & graphics – 2020 Next-Generation Adventurers will feature a new two tone Grey/White exterior combination featuring a new Grey Nose, sleeper floor, front tee-wall, basement risers and back wall. We will post photos online once we have them available. See the new graphic rendition to the right. Many exterior accessories will be black to accent this new look…
b. All Models – All New Interiors and Color Groups – All 2020 Next-Generation Adventurers will feature all new interiors with new wood, wall board and flooring. The two new interior décor choices, Canvas – Brown tone with fabric/fabric dinette cushions and Dark Night which is the Grey tone featuring Faux leather dinette seat base and a fabric back. Both interior décor were designed by our outside interior designers who designed the 901SB for us last year (sample board right). They did an excellent job with these two new interiors for 2020. We believe this new Next-Generation interiors are our best ever…
c. All Models – New Designer “highlight” stitched dinette cushions – All 2020 Next-Generation Adventurer dinette cushions will now have the different color accent stitching giving a new rich look to our 2020 Adventurer camper interiors.

e. All Models – New interior LED lighting – We have changed the interior light package to a new light similar to the ones we used in Eagle Cap last year. These will give the Next-Generation Adventurers a new modern upgraded look, not to mention better lighting.
f. All Models – New Cooktop design – Our special negotiated partnership with Dometic has paid off in spades… Not only are we able to feature all Dometic appliances throughout the Next Generation Adventurer but we are able to offer upgraded appliances like the high end Dometic Cooktop with the residential style cast iron grate. This new partnership and Dometic appliance package is the best we have ever offered from a style, features, quality and service standpoint.
g. All Models – New Refrigerator doors – This change not only eliminates the need to replace an entire door if dinged or dented but allows us to add matching accent panels to match the galley backsplash and the new overhead cabinet door inserts completing our new modern look.
h. All Models – Replacing carpet under dinette – We are now adding the same flooring under the dinette in place of the carpet used in the past and replacing the carpeted step to the bedroom with the solid step top. This change will provide that new modern high end look of the “Next-Generation Adventurer” plus eliminates the cleaning issues of carpet in a camper that many customers have requested.
i. All Models – New Mattress – Upgraded Double Density foam mattress. This new designer fabric covered mattress is not only more comfortable but by being manufactured with a designer fabric cover giving a great look while eliminates the need for a bedspread… Bedspread is now discontinued for 2020.

q. 80RB – Phat Ladder upgrade – The 80RB continues to be upgraded and more balanced to the main Adventurer line up by adding the “Phat” ladder upgrade replacing the standard small diameter ladder from past years.
r. 80RB – Dinette table modifications – The dinette table has been shortened to make it easier to get into the sofa when the table is set up as a dinette, additionally the arm rests have been made narrower to allow more sitting room in the sofa/dinette.
