RV Preview: Fleetwood announces new Frontier diesel pushers

By Tony Barthel from a press release from Fleetwood RV
Fleetwood RV has announced the 2022 Fleetwood Frontier in two models promising to incorporate features and design components based on customer input. The two variants are the Frontier 34GT and the 36SS. They may now be ordered from dealers starting at around $300,000.

One of the highlights of the platform is a fully flat floor. This means there’s no need to step up over the engine compartment in the rear. On the subject of the back of this coach, one of the highlights noted was the inclusion of a shelf specifically for a CPAP machine.

Both of the Fleetwood Frontier models are equipped with the Aqua-Hot® 250D tankless water heater.

In the press release, Doug Miller, product manager for REV Recreation Group’s Class A products, said, “We’re constantly working to improve the design, layout and amenities we deliver to our Fleetwood RV owners. Both models are triple slides….”

Interiors include Tarkett® flooring and Whirlpool appliances including a stainless steel refrigerator, induction cooktop and convection microwave.

Fleetwood RV Frontier 36SS

This floor plan features a full master bath with a large 50” x 28” solid fiberglass shower with shower seat and glass enclosure; a convenient half bath with a vessel sink to provide more countertop space; Adap-Table® Dinette; and an extra-long custom sofa book-ended with two reclining theater seats from Roadwire®.

In the kitchen, the Adap-Table provides dual functionality. When flush against the wall, it’s a convenient workstation or breakfast bar for two. By swinging the table out vertically, it easily hosts a dinner party for four. In the entertainment area, the 111” sofa allows an adult to comfortably lay down to watch TV. And there’s still providing plenty of room for a companion to relax in the adjoining recliner.

 

Full features and options for the 2022 Frontier:

  • Cummins, 6.7L, 340HP engine, 700 lb / ft torque with Allison 2500 Series, 6-speed transmission
  • FCCC V-Ride, Drive Tech w/Opti-View and incredible 55-degree front turning radius
  • Full residential electric coach
  • Aqua-Hot 250D hydronic heating system for hot water and coach heat
  • Counter-depth residential refrigerator
  • Microwave/Convection oven
  • Recessed induction cooktop
  • Stainless farm-style galley sink
  • 100-gallon fuel capacity
  • Industry-exclusive REV Wedge-Block holding tanks for maximized capacity
  • 100-gallon fresh water
  • 65-gallon gray water
  • 45-gallon black water
  • Premium interior options
  • Stackable Washer/Dryer
  • Power theater seating
  • Hide-A-Loft™ drop-down queen bed
  • Central Vac system
  • Premium tech and safety features and options

One of the things highlighted in the graphics and illustrated with the digital illustrations for the Fleetwood Frontier is the four available color choices of full-body graphics; Granite, Ironman, Loyalty and Morning Coffee. Yep. Swishy swirls with fancy names and not a single choice of exterior graphics that wouldn’t be right at home in a Mardi Gras parade. Come on, RV companies. If you’re going to send out a press release about being innovative, how about starting with making the exteriors as tasteful as the interiors. Please?

It looks pretty much like a 97 Discovery we bought new in 96 but it had just one large slide-out.

It interesting how they got a bath & a half into a 36′ floor plan. And, the radiator, side or rear? And lastly, a different exterior scheme should be offered as I’ve seen enough Nike look-a-likes.

We’re trailer people but like to look at Motorhomes anyway, just to look. One of my big peeves is how that poor diesel stuck in the back doesn’t (in my opinion anyway) get enough air circulation. Usually a big ‘grill’ in the rear and maybe a smaller one on one side. The only motorhome I’ve seen with air coming in on three sides is the Foretravel brand. If I was looking for a diesel pusher, that’s the brand I’d look at. Of course, it would have to be a ‘pre-loved’ model for me to afford it – ha.

I hope some manufacturers pay attention to Tony’s last paragraph. Swishes, swirls, and swoops have been run into the ground. And, by the way, what colors are Ironman and Loyalty?
