Maximizing Your Storage Space
Whether you embrace the camp kitchen or the conventional exterior storage compartment, you revel in versatility. While many RVs boast a Camp Queen, this one is genuinely Queen-capable, offering the freedom to customize your journey akin to the beloved “choose your adventure” books from your youth.
Seriously Smart Design
The interior stands as a testament to meticulous planning. The provision of USB outlets for contemporary devices, the utilization of Frosty glass to preserve privacy while allowing abundant natural light, and the adoption of a pet-friendly layout without cumbersome carpets, offering ample space for furry companions are just some of the amazing features. Nevertheless, a minor drawback is the absence of drawers, but solutions can be devised. Or, if that’s a deal breaker, this RV has drawers!
Stretching to approximately 23 feet in length and equipped with a 5500 GVW, this RV guarantees effortless towing with mid-sized tow vehicles or larger SUVs. Getting rid of the need for an investment in a hefty heavy-duty truck. This allows you to not only haul your trailer, but to bring your family along as well!
Catalina elevates preparedness by going the extra mile in solar. It transcends the ordinary plug-on-the-roof approach, opting for a near plug-and-play setup with robust, heavy-gauge wiring capable of accommodating up to 600 watts of solar power. Furthermore, an all-inclusive factory solar package remains at your disposal for those who prefer an integrated solution.
The power awning is equipped with remote-controlled, color-changing lighting, empowering you to create the perfect ambiance at your campsite. Opting for the camp kitchen augments your outdoor culinary experience, complete with a convenient shelf to cater to your culinary needs.
In the pursuit of excellence, don’t overlook the black tank flush, simplifying clean-up procedures. Additionally, the integration of the upgraded Norco Hut bolted frame fortifies structural integrity while simultaneously shedding excess weight.
