Excel is built by Peterson Industries, Inc. which is a family-owned business and has its facilities in Smith Center, Kansas.

The company describes the Excel Limited Edition as follows "With 18 spectacular floorplans to choose from, your Limited Edition will become the envy of every RVer you meet in your travelsand a source of pride and contentment for years to come."

Excel Limited Edition

The Classic comes in four nominal lengths - approx. 30', 33', 35' and 36'. We show one floorplan for each of these lengths below.

New features are the decorator packages - selected colors and fabrics coordinated by a professional decorator - and a 27" flat screen TV. An theatre group seating arrangement is another new option.

The base MSRP for these fifth wheels starts at around $69k for the shortest length up to around $84k for the 36' models. We stress again that these are the BASE prices (as of mid 2007.)


Excel Limited 30RKE
The 30RKE floorplan
is shown below. This is the shortest Classic with an actual overall length of 31'11".
This is a nice arrangement with 3 slides giving a large open living area. There is an option to replace the queen bed with a king.
The 30RKO (not shown) has a similar arrangement but with the step entry to the bathroom and bedroom area in the center. Another 30 floorplan - the 30RSO (not shown) puts the kitchen in the mid area with the rear area (where the kitchen is in the picture below) being taken by an entertainment center.

The 33RKE floorplan with 3 slides is shown below
The actual overall length of this model is 34'11". A bigger kitchen arrangement and a really nice use of space. Once again there is a king bed option.
(These floorplans - to maximize the space and make them as easy as possible to look at - are not shown to the same scale of course ..) There are 7 available floorplans in this length. 4 of these put the seating arrangement at the rear (as we show with the 35RSE further down the page.)

The 35RSE floorplan has an overall length at 36'8" - with three slides is shown below.
This has an improved kitchen, taking advantage of the extra length.

Finally, we show the 36FLR floorplan. This is a beautiful arrangement with the kitchen and dining area at the rear and a big living area with computer and entertainment center. Overall length is 37'6" and this floorplan really takes advantage of the space. There are 3 other floorplans available in this length, each with the kitchen arranged to the side.
