Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces today that recently acquired subsidiary, CURT Manufacturing, LLC, is the top winner in the 2nd annual RISE (Recognizing Innovation & Supplier Excellence) Awards, which are designed to honor the best and most innovative new products marketed by RV industry component suppliers for the 2020 model year.
CURT’s BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale was the overall RISE Award winner in the aftermarket category. A Bluetooth®-enabled, smartphone-compatible mobile towing scale, BetterWeigh is an innovative, compact device that plugs into a tow vehicle’s diagnostic port (OBD-II) and measures the real-time weight of the vehicle and trailer, cargo/payload, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution, and trailer brake gain, and conveniently displays them on the user’s Apple or Android phone.
The BetterWeigh mobile towing scale also won the Best New Product Award at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas in the Exterior Accessories category and the 2020 Global Media Award.
“At CURT, we are constantly striving to develop advanced concepts and new product innovations that consumers will find useful in everyday life. Our team put in a ton of effort to see this product to fruition, and we’re very proud of it,” said Jesse Bauer, Director of Product Management for CURT.
