Maybe that division was making too many modles and they were not selling. Our 2014 Work & Play 25 ULA was discontinued as well.

Likely because so many consumers only want "the latest and greatest". Car manufacturers do the same thing.

My unit was only manufactured about 18 months. Another member here determined that the division appointed a new general manager who decided the line wasn't making enough 'per unit' profit on several of their models... so he ordered a new design. They started producing units with different model numbers and different floor plans and lesser features.

It only was made from 13-15 then wiped from hyperlite line (I thought hyperlite quality was between boost and nitro )

Yep... we feel blessed that we got ours when we did - bigger basement storage, bigger waste tanks, no step-up in bedroom.

I assume youíre asking me. If you canít see my signature line, itís a Wildcat 295RSX... not the same line/ type as yours but it might answer why a model/line was dropped.

Think Pontiac!
