Lance Camper Annouces All New 995 Truck Camper


Lancaster, California – December 11, 2014 – Lance Camper Mfg. Corp.

Lance continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary by rolling out an all-new Truck Camper model, the 995.

The 995 is a 9’ model weighing in at a 3,290 base dry weight, 300-500lbs. less than competitive models. Highlights of this new floor plan include a full wall dinette/refrigerator super slide sitting on an “above the wheel well” floor design. This new floor configuration allows for more space inside the camper, less of a step up into the slide out area and the addition of a nice slide out storage drawer in the basement area.

Randy Hunter, Product Development Manager states, “we introduced the above the wheel well floor design on the 1172 model and our owners love it, so we have incorporated into the new 995 as well. This gives our owners an additional 9” of interior floor width, which is evident as soon as you walk in”.

The all-new 995 standard features include a very large galley with substantial counter space and built in trashcan designed to accommodate today’s most common size of plastic grocery bag. The cab-over area features a new radius entry step and all new entertainment center housing the standard blue tooth compatible audio system and optional 24” TV. Available options include an electric rear awning, Lance’s exclusive ultraDECKplus bumper, keyless entry, entry door shade and new LED docking lights. We wonder if companies like One Sure Insurance will start up Truck Camper insurance as the market for them is growing rapidly!
Production starts in January with the 995 starring at the Pleasanton CA and Denver CO RV shows next month!

CORSA Performance Exhaust Now Available For Dodge Durango


BEREA, Ohio – In response to tremendous grassroots interest from Dodge Durango owner forums, CORSA now offers premium exhaust systems for 2011-2014 Dodge Durango SUVs equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI engine, bringing the company’s patented no-drone Reflective Sound Cancellation (RSC) technology and rich, high-performance Sport sound level to owners of the third-generation Durango.

“CORSA exhausts are very popular among vehicle owners who respect advanced technology and top-quality construction, and now Durango owners can experience the sound and performance that CORSA exhausts provide,” said Craig R. Kohrs, vice president and general manager, TMG Performance Products.

CORSA’s straight through cat-back design for the Dodge Durango is constructed with 304L stainless steel, 2.5-inch diameter piping and features a CORSA X-pipe which allows the exhaust configuration to outflow the stock exhaust by an incredible 50 percent.

The exhaust system is finished off with huge 4.5-inch tips which fit flawlessly into the existing bumper cut-outs, polishing off the look of the Dodge Durango. CORSA offers the system in either a polished finish (part #14459) or black PVD-coated tips (part #14459BLK), both laser etched with the CORSA logo. PVD, physical vapor deposition, is a vacuum coating process that vaporizes solid metal to a plasma of atoms or molecules, resulting in a vapor that is deposited as a high-performance coating. CORSA’s PVD-coated Pro-Series Tips display a deep, brilliant, reflective black finish that won’t chip, flake or peel and resists corrosion.

CORSA exhaust systems are backed by a limited lifetime warranty, are 50-state emissions legal and will not void the factory warranty. Each system includes all necessary hardware as well as an illustrated installation guide. CORSA Performance products can be purchased at Summit Racing Equipment, Jegs, and other major retailers.

Manufacturer of race-winning Grappler off-road tires rolls forward in support of Ultra4’s premier event as Title Sponsor of the 9th Annual “King of the Hammers.”


Fast Facts:

  • Proven winner Nitto Grappler light-truck tires officially aligned with world’s toughest one-day off-road race in the USA.
  • Nitto involvement escalates from 2014 Presenting Sponsor to 2015 Title Sponsor.
  • Nitto-powered website provides new level of social interaction to the race.

Cypress, Calif. (January 8, 2015) – On December 22, 2014, Nitto Tire U.S.A. signed an agreement with Hammerking Productions (Ultra4) to be title sponsor of the 2015 Nitto King of the Hammers (KOH) race. Nitto Tire was previously the race’s presenting sponsor.

The King of the Hammers race is recognized as America’s toughest one-day event in off-road racing and covers 200+ miles on a course that combines triple-digit-speed desert sections with technical boulder climbs that often require winching. The 2015 running – the ninth annual King of the Hammers — will be the first one with Nitto Tire as the title sponsor.

“Nitto has had a great relationship with Hammerking Productions, Ultra4 and its flagship race, King of the Hammers (KOH), for the past five years,” said, Chris Corbett, Nitto Tire U.S.A.’s Events & Motorsports Manager. “When Nitto came out to race KOH for the first time, we knew some great challenges would lay ahead for the Grappler line. After listening, learning, and then developing some of the best products in off-road, we’ve had some dominant wins with some of the most talented drivers in the sport. Out of these repeated wins we learned of shared goals with Dave Cole (owner of KOH) and his growth vision within future KOH races. So when presented with the long-term opportunity to retain the title sponsorship, we jumped at the chance to support a race for which Nitto feels has great current and future potential for all involved.”

Previous title sponsor Griffin Radiators endorsed the move. “Over the past several years, Griffin Radiator as well as the Beebe family have enjoyed every moment that King of the Hammers (KOH) has afforded us,” said marketing director Steve Beebe. “We took a leap of faith on a start-up event but, more importantly, we invested in great people. It is because of those great people that KOH has grown to the incredible success that it is today. Moving forward, the event’s potential is higher than ever, and that is why we are pleased to welcome long-time supporter Nitto Tire as the new title sponsor. Griffin will continue to provide support to both the event as a whole and to individual race teams. We are very excited about the continued growth of KOH and to see what new levels of success can be reached with the support of KOH family member Nitto Tire.”

Dave Cole, president of Hammerking Productions/Ultra4 Racing, added: “Nitto Tire is one of our most valued partners. They quickly stepped up when this sponsorship opportunity arose. Nitto’s increased participation will help make the 2015 Nitto King of the Hammers the biggest and best yet: for fans, racers, spectators and off-road enthusiasts in general.”

The Nitto King of the Hammers race for the unlimited Ultra4 vehicles takes place on February 6, 2015, in Johnson Valley, California. “Hammertown” on Means Dry Lake will open on January 30 to kick off a full week of ultimate desert & rock action. Competition begins with the King of the Motos race on February 1-2. The carnage-fest East/West Shootout on February 2 pits Southeastern Rock Racing Series (SRRS) drivers against Ultra4 racers in an obstacle course challenge.

Competition continues on February 4 with the Polaris KOH UTV race. Street-based 4x4s hit the course on February 5 for the Smittybilt Everyman Challenge. The action peaks on Friday February 6 with the main event: The Nitto Tire King of the Hammers race. Competitors will spend all day (and part of the night for the non-front-runners) on the approximately 225-mile course. Some sections are conducive to triple-digit speeds while the rock obstacles can knock competitors out of the race in slow-motion rollovers and broken parts. The “King” will be officially crowned on Saturday morning, followed by new-for-2015 “KOH The Experience” enthusiast trail rides.

Nitto-powered social media for the event will be live before the KOH East/West Shootout driver drawing on January 8, 2015. and #LiveAtKOH will provide social interaction and updates before, during and after King of the Hammers 2015.

Husky Towing Products Introduces New WD Hitch

Morgan Hill, CA, November 2014 – Husky Towing Products announced the most comprehensive product launch in Husky history with its innovative new Center Line TS weight distribution hitch system. The Center Line TS combines weight distribution and sway control in a strong, lightweight design that delivers outstanding performance with significantly less noise than competing hitches. The TS has enjoyed exceptional early response from both dealers and consumers.

“The Center Line TS provides an excellent all-in-one hitch system, giving RV enthusiasts increased confidence and safety due to the integrated weight distribution and sway control.” says Steve Holt, Vice President of Brand and Corporate Marketing. “While other weight distribution hitches with sway control can be quite noisy, the new Center Line TS was designed to be as quiet as possible. The hitch also comes with the ball installed and torqued, so installation is quick and easy – all at an exceptional value.”

To make the product both strong and light, Husky’s engineers employed 1035 steel in a single piece, forged top plate complimented with trunnions of hardened 1045 steel – both have excellent wear and fatigue properties. Used in conjunction with the innovative head design, these super strong materials complement each other to provide the right amount of clamping force to assist the spring bars and lift brackets in resisting sway.

The lift brackets, head and spring bars were also designed to work together to promote a quiet and smooth ride. The round, straight spring bars provide a superior fit and appearance. The better fit promotes superior sway control by reacting to trailer and sway conditions earlier than other products. The tapered design of the spring bars improves ride quality.

The Center Line TS is significantly lighter than competing products. Universal EZ Adjust frame brackets are easy to install and easy to adjust. The hitch ball comes pre-installed and the lift tool can load and unload spring bars as well as tighten the lift bracket bolts.

Started in 2001 to honor excellence in vehicle design, the awards are presented to the most outstanding SEMA vehicles chosen by a panel of industry judges. According to Jim Holloway, vice president of Mothers, “This truck is a prime example of engineering execution, it’s obvious that a lot of thought went into it, and while there are a lot of lifted trucks here this F-150 has unique styling cues throughout that really got our attention and deserve recognition.”
