Forest River 2017 Rockwood Flagstaff travel trailer to feature Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) contoured front window
Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announced today that Forest River’s 2017 line of Rockwood Flagstaff travel trailers will feature LCI’s contoured front window glass. Forest River’s inclusion of LCI’s contoured front window glass will mark the world debut of LCI’s contoured glass and window framing advancements.
LCI’s contoured window glass used on the 2017 Forest River Rockwood Flagstaff travel trailers incorporates process improvements that allows OEMs to utilize more commonly practiced, or industry standardized, installation methods. Instead of using adhesive sealants, LCI has introduced a clamp ring to their contoured glass products that adheres directly to the coach, eliminating glue sealants that many manufacturers do not work with on a regular basis. With the incorporation of more widely used installation methods, LCI’s curved glass applications will be quicker and easier.
In addition to more efficient installations, the contoured glass used on the 2017 Rockwood Flagstaff is laminated. The laminated glass uses two pieces of glass and is a similar construction to a windshield on a motorized vehicle, adding safety and strength. LCI’s contoured front window glass also features a sleeker, more modern look to the travel trailer line.
