Hybrid RVs on planning table

The question that remains is: Are consumers interested in paying more for the technology to improve their vehicle’s gas mileage?”

“Both Fleetwood Enterprises and Winnebago Industries are displaying 36-foot motor homes built on the Freightliner ecoFRED chassis. That chassis includes a front-mounted diesel engine coupled to an electric motor/generator that is tied to lithium-ion batteries.” …

  • I think a Hybrid Motohome would be a great idea. They have tons of run for batteries and they already have a built in generator to charge the batteries. Come on you guys lets make a real nice one and I’ll be the first one to buy it.
    Thanks Bob
