RVIA, or Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, is the national trade association representing nearly every recreation vehicle manufacturer and component parts supplier in the United States. Members of the RVIA who display the seal must pledge to meet or exceed detailed safety standards with more than 500 specifications for electrical & heating; fuel systems & equipment; plumbing and water distribution systems; and fire & life safety issues as established under the National Fire Protection Association Standard for Recreational Vehicles.
In addition to meeting these member manufacturer compliance standards, a weight label must be permanently affixed in a highly visible location listing the unit’s gross and unloaded weight ratings, as well as carrying capacity. You can also consult your owner’s manual for additional weight information, towing guidelines, and a multitude of other transportation safety issues.
Just look for the oval-shaped, silver and black seal displayed prominently on the exterior of every new Coachmen RV travel trailer sold at Timberline Auto Center. This will ensure a future of safe, enjoyable, and hassle-free rving for you and your family!
