SylvanSport, the Brevard, North Carolina-based maker of camping trailers and gear, is developing a 100% electric motorhome line. To accomplish its vision, SylvanSport has partnered with Zeus Electric Chassis Inc., a fully configurable Class 3 to Class 8 electric work truck manufacturer. The companies are collaborating on new product development to realize their shared vision of a more sustainable outdoor adventure experience.
“From the inception of SylvanSport in 2004, we knew that our innovations in product design would one day lead to the creation of a class-leading, all-electric motorhome,” says Tom Dempsey, Founder & CEO of SylvanSport. “Zeus’s technology advances, from chassis design to energy storage and management, are helping us to achieve this in the most forward-thinking, environmentally clean way. This is a phenomenal partnership!”
SylvanSport envisions a new line of all-electric RVs, currently code-named Leading the Charge, with new technologies to eliminate emissions, reduce waste, provide water recycling solutions, and more.
“As we look to the future of transportation and clean energy, our vision is to bring vehicle electrification to the outdoor recreation and RV industry,” says Wayne Kugel, Zeus Electric Chassis CEO. “With SylvanSport’s experience and leadership in these industries combined with our expertise in electric vehicles, this collaboration is the best of both worlds.”
“While we are at the beginning stages, as we look into the RV and outdoor adventure markets through our collaboration with SylvanSport, we are excited about the unique features and benefits that will be brought to life in 2022,” says Bob Grinstead, Chief Technology Officer at White Bear Lake, Minnesota-based Zeus Electric Chassis. “Unmatched off-road travel, extended vehicle range, and unexpectedly high vehicle weight capacity are just a few never before seen features in an electric RV.”
