Pilgrim International Offers Five-Year Warranty

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Pilgrim International Inc. has announced the RV industry’s first five-year warranty on all
flooring systems utilizing the CosmoLite composite substrate. “Traditionally, water has
been the culprit in the deterioration of most RV floors,” stated Dave Hoefer, co-founder
and chairman of Middlebury, Indiana-based Pilgrim International. “Even a small amount of
moisture resting on the floor of a traditional camper can result in a soft spot, and
ultimately lead to instability. The multi-million dollar investment in new materials and
technology has paved the path to the five-year warranty; this is a clear and decisive
indication that we have a commitment to the future of the RV industry. We stand behind our
product and we are very proud to be the first and only RV manufacturer in the world that
can offer such guarantees to the end-consumer.” Pilgrim began manufacturing floors
utilizing the new CosmoLite composite substrates in October 2007. “The very nature of the
composite material makes it impervious to rot, mildew and mold,” said Doug Lantz, vice
president of product development. “It was really a by-product of our quest to use stronger,
lighter materials.” CosmoLite is also a formaldehyde-free product with no out-gassing of
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and is completely recyclable. The CosmoLite Composite
material is three times stronger than the traditional wood substrates it replaces. These
factors result in the ability to offer a warranty that reflects the strength and durability
of the materials now utilized. “The floors are really just the first step in the process to
manufacture a travel trailer that replaces wood in all six sides and becomes the first
Green eco-friendly trailer,” Hoefer commented. “It is part of our original vision of
continuous improvement to remain the forerunner in product innovation that will
revolutionize the recreational vehicle industry.”
