Alliance RV Just Unveiled Their New ‘Delta’ Travel Trailer Brand for 2023… And We’ve Already Fallen In Love
The Delta’s initial production run is scheduled to begin in June.
Earlier this month, Alliance RV — one of the most prominent names when it comes to high-quality travel trailer production — teased that they had something big in the works.
Well now, after taking a closer look at their new ‘Delta’ brand of travel trailers that they unveiled last week, we can safely say that the team at Alliance RV definitely didn’t overhype their new endeavor.
Alliance RV co-founders Ryan and Coley Brady were definitely proud of the project they and their team had been working on for quite some time. Not only did they commemorate their reveal of the Delta brand with its very own in-person event, but they also live-streamed it to their fans via YouTube as well.
The Development Of The ‘Delta’ Travel Trailer
During the event, Alliance RV co-founders Ryan and Coley Brady gave industry professionals a peek behind the curtain by answering a few questions about the company’s approach to the development of the Delta brand.
“We’re very excited about this momentous day at Alliance RV. This is a really big day for our company. We’ve really been waiting for this since the beginning. Travel trailers are such a key segment of the industry. We’ve spent a lot of time, effort and energy with this product and we’re just really excited about getting it to market and getting it to our dealer base.” —Coley Brady, co-founder of Alliance RV
Eric Bailey, product manager at Alliance RV, also added that the company is aiming for an initial production run that would begin in June. From this, he also implied that dealers could expect to see Delta units on their lots as early as July.
Ryan Brady also revealed that the company’s Delta travel trailer brand has been in development for over a year. He also disclosed the fact that a large portion of their developments and design changes were driven by feedback from the RV community.
“This has been a long time in the making. We’ve been really working on this project for the better part of 12 months. We tried to stay true to that crowdsourcing model and going out to that RVing community and trying to identify features and designs that really improves the segment.” —Ryan Brady, co-founder of Alliance RV
What We Know So Far About The ‘Delta’ Travel Trailer
According to Alliance RV’s product manager, Eric Bailey, diversity is the name of the game when it comes to the Delta. The new travel trailer line will initially debut with three distinct floorplans; however, by the end of the year, the company is aiming to have up to 10 different configurations available for consumers.
Bailey also added that customers can expect to see MSRP for the Delta starting in the low $50,000 range. He also revealed that the lengths of the Delta models will range from 26 feet up to 34 feet and the dry weights of models will range from approximately 5,500 pounds to 8,000 pounds.
Yes, we’re definitely going for the meat of the market. We’re just trying to bring that travel trailer to the customer – whether it’s a weekend warrior or someone who’s going to use it for more full-time RVing.” —Eric Bailey, Alliance RV product manager
The three initial floor plans that the Delta is expected to debut with are the 281BH, the 251BH, and the 262RB.
The Delta 281BH
The Delta 281BH is a 31-foot, 11-inch bunkhouse that has a dry weight of 6,538 pounds. In the rear it features a three-piece bathroom and 46-inch by 75-inch bunk beds, while towards the front it also features a walk-around north-south 60-inch by 80-inch bed.
In between all of this is a sofa, a dinette, an entertainment center, and a kitchen. The gray water tank capacity sits at 90 gallons, while the black tank and fresh water tank capacities sit at 45 gallons each.
The Delta 251BH
The Delta 251BH is a 29-foot, 3-inch bunkhouse that has a similar layout to the Delta 281BH for the rear bunks, the bathroom, and the front bedroom.
However, compared to the Delta 281BH, it manages to save space by having its refrigerator and dinette on the off-door side while keeping its kitchen and entertainment center on the campsite side.
The Delta 262RB
The Delta 262RB, is a 29-foot, 7-inch bunkhouse that is largely identical to the Delta 251BH.
The only difference with this floorplan is that it does not have the split bunk and bath area that the 251BH has at the rear. Instead, the Delta 262RB just has the bathroom along the rear wall instead.
We Can’t Wait To Get Our Hands On The ‘Delta’
According to Bailey, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Delta — both for present floor plans and future developments as well.
“One of the highlights that we focused on, with much of it coming from our crowdsourcing and dealer feedback, is really improving storage. On the outside of Delta, we have the largest passthrough you’re going to see in a travel trailer, and a total of 71 cubic feet of outside storage for a travel trailer.” —Eric Bailey, Alliance RV product manager
Bailey also revealed that the company was aiming to have core conveniences — like pullout pantries, pullout trash cans, and multiple hot and cold spray ports — all be integral parts of every Delta floorplan going forward.
With all that being said, we can’t wait to get a real hands-on look at the Delta — whether it be by purchase or rental — because it is definitely poised to be a game-changer in the industry for 2023.
