Excel travel trailers have an outstanding reputation for providing innovations that customers have appreciated for decades. Excel is recognized as one of the premier manufacturers of high quality travel trailers. The Excel name is one that has earned great respect throughout the RV community, partially because of the design innovations that have separated Excel from many of the other companies that manufacture travel trailers. Though many competitors have tried to emulate Excel designs, the company is in a league of its own. The company has attracted many satisfied and loyal customers who consider Excel to be among the finest travel trailers on the road today.
History and Innovations of Excel
Excel company was formed in 1966. It survived the early seventies when many other manufacturers went out of business as the whole industry suffered. In 1986, Excel became known throughout the travel trailer industry as a manufacturer willing to think outside the box by creative innovations that have revolutionized the entire industry. Excel was the pioneer of numerous implementations that forever changed the way travel trailers were built and designed. These innovations include, but are certainly not limited to, the following creations:
- Duel sofa incliners
- Ducted roof air conditioning
- Single piece rubber roofs
- The exclusive Excel drop “Z” main frame
In 1988, Excel introduced its top of the line fifth wheel trailer, and the Knoble Esquire travel trailer. Slide out rooms arrived in 1991, and quickly swept across the entire industry. The company manufactures its own doors and frames in state of the art manufacturing facilities.
In 1995 the company was highly rated by the nonprofit watchdog group RV Consumer Group, who stated that Excel was one of the top 10 percent of travel trailer manufacturers, as it relates to durability and value. Excel is the only fifth wheel travel trailer to have won a five-star rating from RV Consumer Digest. RV values are central to the Excel design philosophy.
