Score one for RV consumers!

What do I mean by that?  Well, back at the 2015 RVIA show, we made a video introducing people to Truma (the company and the products).  One year later in 2016, we couldn’t swing a cat on the show floor without hitting a Truma-equipped rig.  (We have a cat.  Don’t swing cats.)  The reason Truma has been able to grow like this is because we, as RV consumers, have been pulling the product through the supply chain into the market.  Basically, RV manufacturers told Truma, “Your products are too expensive.  Consumers want cheap crap.”  Truma didn’t believe them, did their own research, got a foot in the door, and the RV buying public is doing the rest.  Hear it straight from the CEOs mouth:


Almost every RV buyer complains at some point about cheap components and shoddy quality.  I like this video because it shows that sometimes, someone gets it right.  What manufacturers used to see as a liability (e.g. a more expensive water heater, or furnace), is now seen as a quality feature that sets their models apart.  It’s episodes like this that will change the industry for the better… one component at a time.

In the video, you’ll see us running around highlighting different rigs that contain a Truma product.  Here’s a list of the ones we saw at the show that contain either a Truma Combi furnace and water heater combo, or the Truma AquaGo tankless (hybrid) water heater:

  • Airstream BaseCamp
  • Coachman Galleria
  • Coachman CrossfFit
  • Dynamax REV
  • Dynamax Isata 3
  • Dynamax Isata 5
  • Forest River Berkshire (All)
  • Forest River Legacy (All)
  • Forest River Charleston (All)
  • Forest River Sunseeker/Forester (All) Ford Transit
  • Hymer Aktiv
  • Leisure Travel Vans All (Option on Wonder)
  • Pleasure Way (All models)
  • Fleetwood Discovery (All)
  • Holiday Rambler Endevour (All)
  • Winnebago Travato (All)
  • Winnebago Era (All)
  • Winnebago Paseo
  • Winnebago View/Navion
  • Winnebago Aspect
  • Winnebago Via
  • Winnebago Forza
  • Taxa Cricket


We fully expect this list will have grown by next year.  After all, nobody uses a phone from the 1960s anymore, we shouldn’t have to settle for 1960s technology in our RV water heaters either.
