Accuride International Drawer Slides Help Voyager Campervans Crack Customer Code


SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Voyager Campervans, a rapidly growing startup, has cracked the customer code for the campervan craze, with help from movement solutions leader Accuride® International.

The young, Minneapolis-based company has created a rugged but space- and fuel-efficient vehicle that enables customers to enjoy outdoor getaways with all the comforts of home while avoiding the expense, environmental impact and driving challenges of owning a larger, heavier recreational vehicle.

Voyager Campervans' solution: Convert a cargo van into a rental vehicle that's compact (with a 130-square-foot, or 1,208-liter, interior) and lightweight, giving it superior fuel economy (average: U.S. 24 mpg) and easy drivability. Key to achieving this design are large, heavy-duty, pull-out cabinets containing a kitchen and all necessary camper-vehicle equipment and storage. Supporting the cabinets and helping them move smoothly are heavy-duty, durable Accuride slides that bear up to 600 lbs. (272 kg).

"Our budget-conscious customers want all the amenities of home while having an affordable, sustainable, easy-to-handle vehicle," says Voyager Campervans founder Grady Linder. "We selected Accuride's 9308 Heavy-Duty Handed Slides with Lock-in and Lock-Out because they can sustain a lot of weight, as well as wear and tear. These slides also help us fully utilize a tight space, and they enable drawers to move smoothly but also stay in place."

Linder adds, "The durability and reliability of Accuride slides are a major contributor to our customers having a great experience."

Sid Kalantar, Accuride Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, says, "Voyager Campervans' innovative use of our heavy-duty 9308E slides demonstrates the versatility of our solutions, in this case, enabling manufacturers to meet growing needs for compact, sustainable vehicles that can carry extraordinarily heavy loads."
