KZ’s Durango Half-Ton D256RKT Wins 2023 Mid-Priced RV of the Year Award

SHIPSHEWANA, INDIANA – KZ Recreational Vehicles has received the 2023 Mid-Priced RV of the Year Award by RV News in recognition of the Durango Half-Ton D256RKT. This model is perfect for the chef or entertainer and features a spacious rear kitchen and a redesigned outside kitchen with an industry-first pellet smoker.

“The residential kitchen has tons of storage options to house all the appliances and cutlery even the most experienced home chef might need, plus features tons of counter space, including a sink cover and glass cover over the cooktop for even more space. Outside, we’ve redesigned the outside kitchen to include an industry first pellet smoker and table, in addition to the existing fridge, griddle, sink, and storage options. The electric smoker is easy to tear down and set up and is stored directly in the outdoor kitchen for convenient access. Campers can utilize both the griddle and smoker to elevate their cooking options for an even wider range of flavors,” stated Brent Froman, general manager at KZ RV.

Aram Koltookian, president of KZ, stated, “It’s an honor to receive the Mid-Priced RV of the Year Award for the Durango Half-Ton D256RKT. We are constantly striving to innovate new ways to elevate the camping experience and we’re proud to know that our efforts have been fruitful in raising the Durango Half-Ton to the top of the list. We’re excited to continue to keep working on new ways that we can provide an even better experience to campers in the future.”
