Open Range RV discontinues the Rolling Thunder Toy Hauler 5th wheel camper





I would like to inform my readers of the end of a great run. At the time of this blog posting, the Open Range Rolling Thunder Toy Hauler product line is no more. The Rolling Thunder, with its stampeding herd of horses logo, has been put out to pasture by the Shipshewana, Indiana RV manufacturer. The Rolling Thunder has been part of Open Range RV’s stable for about two and a half years. Slow sales and subtle shifts of interest by RV consumers were believed to be several of the determining factors in the discontinuation of the toy hauler product line.

The Rolling Thunder was introduced to the public in 2009 as a toy hauler designed to be more comfy and utilitarian in design than its competition. The Rolling Thunder was the fifth wheel toy hauler that was ‘not on steroids’ as owner Randy Graber noted. The Rolling Thunder product line did not feature over the top interior designs in decor or graphics, but gave the owner of the toy hauler more comforts of home. The four season unit was light weight by industry standards. As of the time of writing this, there has been no news of a replacement toy hauler product from the manufacturer.

Here at Lerch RV, we currently have one Rolling Thunder H345 MPR left in inventory, having sold over twenty-five Rolling Thunders in previous years. Come visit our Milroy, Pennsylvania location and see why we are the largest Open Range dealership in the commonwealth. And maybe you will leave here with a great deal on a great trailer.

Happy Trails Rolling Thunder…

I can't believe that they discontinued this awesome product. We have one and totally love it. We have had so many comments at campgrounds about it, even though there had been other toy haulers there. Our first camping trip, we had 3 families that wanted tours before we even got set up, and when our friends joined us and stayed in the toy hauler part, everyone was amazed. The only reason I can think of is that people needed to get a class A to pull it due to the GVWR, but personally anyone pulling a camper should have to take a driving test.

Most toy haulers have a large GVWR. Open Range wanted to circle the wagons a little closer. To concentrate on what products sell good for the company. The Rolling Thunders were a great toy hauler, no colorful graphics or bachelor pad decors, but good down home comforts and decors.
