RV Review: Throwback Travel Trailer

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

In the 1950s I Love Lucy was keeping TV viewers entertained, Yankees’ centerfielder Mickey Mantle was a household name, and simple travel trailers were the rage. The designers at Genesis Supreme RV have created that nostalgic feel with trailers with straightforward floorplans. Said Pablo Carmona, president and CEO of Genesis, “I want people to enjoy their trailer…so I thought how fun it would be to design and build a trailer for families to create great memories like families did when I was growing up.”

Three Genesis Classic floorplans are named after California coastal towns — Malibu, Palisades and Del Mar. They range in length from 16 feet 6 inches to 20 feet and feature a 1950s exterior design with many of the needed amenities inside. The galley has a two-burner cooktop, a stainless-steel sink with a high-rise faucet, a residential-size microwave and lots of storage cabinets. The Classic can sleep up to four people. The RV’s rounded-body style is available with an Ivory White or Slate Gray exterior accented in five color choices. Standard are a retro awning, 14-inch wheels with “moon” hubcaps, wet bath, furnace, flip-up dining area storage and wardrobe, 6-gallon water heater, dual 5-gallon LP-gas cylinders, 10-watt solar-power system, pass-through storage and a 22-gallon freshwater tank. Claimed dry weight starts at 2,280 pounds, and gross vehicle weight ratings start at 2,980 pounds. MSRP starts at $16,380.
