KZ Awarded Top Debut 2022

SHIPSHEWANA, INDIANA – KZ Recreational Vehicles has received the Top Debut Award by RV Business in recognition of the new Durango D311BHD full-profile luxury hatch-back fifth wheel RV. The Top Debut award is a reflection of the KZ ingenuity, engineering, and teamwork.

“The Durango D311BHD is unique and first in the industry to add a hatch-back door to a fifth wheel. The hatch-back provides the flexibility of its usable backend space for utility, bunk-style bed space, and entertainment. We listened to our customers as they looked for more versatility in a full-size RV, and I think the D311BHD floorplan supports their needs. It’s inspiring to see the engineering and production teams collaborated to develop this unique solution.” states Brent Froman, KZ general manager.

Aram Koltookian, the KZ president, stated, “I’m proud of the creativity of the KZ team. The Durango D311BHD is a new design that will appeal to many purposes while traveling. The quality and level of care that goes into each one of the KZ products are immeasurable, and the Top Debut Award is greatly appreciated and inspiring to our team!”

During a recent Open House hosted for dealers, comments about the Durango D311BHD were, “What an innovative idea, it’s a bunk room, storage room or a patio area, plus, you still have an outside kitchen, and the two awnings are fantastic!” and “This is a great use of space!”.
