Forest River Sells First ‘UFO’ Motorhome

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Forest RiverThe first motorhomes built on the new Workhorse UFO chassis arrived on
dealer lots last month, and the first retail sale was quick to follow.
Florida residents Gus and Garnett Johnson purchased a Forest River
35-foot Georgetown 359TS model with the rear 8.1L GM Vortec gas engine
from sales representative Gail Grinstead at Dusty’s Camper World in
Bartow, Florida.

The Forest River model was the first to be delivered to a
customer since the company announced it would use the new rear-engine
chassis from Workhorse Custom Chassis as a Georgetown platform. Forest
River is currently in full production with the chassis, and more
Georgetown units can be expected to start showing up at Forest River
dealerships across the country in the coming weeks, said Art Colvin,
general manager of Forest River.

Monaco Corporation and Winnebago Industries have announced they
also will be building units on the Workhorse UFO. Monaco expects to
start production within the next month, and Winnebago will start
production in the spring.
