Keystone brings game-changing Ground Control® TT auto leveling to travel trailer market
Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces today that its industry-first automatic leveling system for travel trailers, Ground Control® TT, will be featured on Keystone RV’s 2017 Laredo, Impact, Carbon, Sprinter and Cougar product lines as standard on select models.
Stated Keystone President Jeff Runels, “The term ‘game-changing’ tends to get over used, but in this instance, I think it is completely accurate. Once consumers discover the ease and speed of leveling their trailer with Ground Control TT auto leveling, they will never want to do without. What used to take 15-30 minutes of hard work can now be accomplished at the push of a button. Ground Control TT truly changes the game.”
LCI originally brought automatic leveling technology to the fifth-wheel market in 2009. Today, the majority of fifth-wheel manufacturers offer it either as a standard feature or as an option. LCI introduced its industry-first automatic Ground Control TT leveling system for travel trailers in April 2016.
Ground Control TT levels travel trailers in under three minutes by simply pressing the Auto Level button. Once the automatic leveling sequence is set into motion, a set of front and rear jacks stabilize and level the trailer using LCI’s patented leveling technology.
LCI’s Ground Control TT travel trailer leveling system will be on display at the 2016 Elkhart RV Open House on 2017 Keystone Laredo, Impact, Carbon, Sprinter and Cougar models.
