FITZGERALD, Ga. — Whether it's riding an ATV, a motorcycle, a sand rail, or even a snowmobile, the Surge™ by Adrenaline™ is the perfect sport utility trailer to get to the action. The most recent additions to the Surge lineup are a trailer capable of hauling a sand rail or dune buggy and a new fifth wheel floorplan. A three-quarter ton pickup can easily pull either model.
What makes the Surge 27SC travel trailer so appealing is its 16 feet 9 inches of unobstructed cargo space. This is enough room for a sand rail or dune buggy. This is the ideal trailer for a customer who wants to take friends off-roading on the weekend and still have comfortable living quarters. The 27SC has a single or dual electric trac queen bed option and two 74-inch fold up sofas. The Surge 27SC can sleep four to six comfortably.
The Surge 30QB fifth wheel combines 12 feet 6 inches of unobstructed cargo space with very comfortable living quarters. In front, it has a private master bedroom with a walk-around queen bed. In the rear is an available single or double electric trac queen bed lift. In the living area are two 74-inch fold up sofas. The vehicle is equipped with a complete galley and a full bath with a 40-inch shower. The fifth wheel can comfortably sleep six to eight people.
Both trailers have fuel resistant linoleum flooring throughout. As an option, owners can step up to heavy-duty flooring, which is perfect for carrying and storing snowmobiles.
Another feature for these new additions to the Surge lineup is a great sound system with a CD/DVD player. An 800-watt automotive sound system is an option, as is a 19-inch LCD television.
While Surge trailers are luxurious and comfortable on the inside, on the outside they show off their "wow" appeal. Adrenaline builds Surge with three options — white aluminum, smooth fiberglass or platinum colored aluminum with black trim. There are two graphics packages to help customers to develop their own look. (Red Smoke or Razor Edge Blue)
The non-skid, rear ramp doors on these new Surge trailers can support weights up to 2,500 pounds; and the door closes with coil spring hinges, which means there are no cables to get in the way. Adrenaline equips the cargo areas of its Surge trailers with D-ring tie downs rated at 750 pounds.
Adrenaline also thought of the extras to make off-road camping easier. Owners can elect to have their Surge toy hauler equipped with a gas generator and fuel station. Plus, a spray away outside shower with a 15-foot coil hose helps wash mud and grime off the toys.
The two new floorplans from Adrenaline will help those sport enthusiasts who want to enjoy their passion and still stand out from the crowd. And, they are affordable. The fifth wheel has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $30,700, while the 27FKSR has a MSRP of $27,860.
