Brinkley RV is in the final stretch of the preview tour for its Model G prototype luxury fifth wheel toy hauler, and General RV is displaying the RV at several RV shows in 2023. The Model G made its official public debut with General RV at the Florida RV SuperShow in January. The Model G’s latest public appearance with General RV will be at the Utah Sportsman’s, Vacation and RV Show at the Mountain America Expo Center in Sandy, Utah from February 16-19, 2023. Here is a sneak peek at the Brinkley RV Model G prototype before the Utah RV Show.
Who is Brinkley RV?
Brinkley RV, which was formed by five RV industry-manufacturing leaders, was founded in 2022 and is headquartered in Goshen, Ind. With a focus on recreating the RV experience for dealers and customers, Brinkley’s team proactively seeks customer input on each design from floorplans to cutting-edge technologies.
“As owners of the company, many of us have been doing business with General RV for decades. Their dedication to the customer through continuous improvement and a growth mindset made partnering with them a natural fit,” said Ryan Thwaits, co-owner of Brinkley RV. “We are honored they chose to launch and carry Brinkley RV at all of their dealerships; this is a testament to the mutual trust General RV and Brinkley RV have in each other.”
Introducing the Brinkley RV Model G prototype fifth wheel toy hauler
Created, developed and tested without compromise, the Model G prototype from Brinkley RV offers dozens of intelligently designed features, an automotive exterior and a true residential interior that’s unmatched. The Model G has some of the industry’s largest storage spaces, including a lighted 3-way pass-through, under I-Beam storage with a multi-function flip-up bulkhead wall, along with three 48″ deep MORryde drawers for an unbeatable storage capacity. Euro Square frameless windows with six-inch openings come standard on the Model G, as well as three side awnings that stretch nearly the entirety of the RV’s 40-foot length.
The Model G travels on heavy-duty 7,000lb axles and a MORryde CRE3000 Suspension System. SumoSprings come standard on Model G fifth wheel toy haulers as part of an exclusive suspension upgrade partnership between Brinkley and SuperSprings International. Dual 400w solar panels with 200 Ah of self-heating lithium batteries will keep you camping longer, while a FlexPower 5500 with a dual fuel inverter generator will handle all of your power needs. Durable construction includes an industry leading PDI process, an industry best insulation package and reinforced and walkable slide roofs.
Modern meets magnificence inside the Model G fifth wheel toy hauler prototype
Once inside the Brinkley RV Model G prototype, the first thing you notice is the spacious kitchen and living area. Dual slide outs expand floorplan to provide ample space to maneuver around the waterfall island which converts to a peninsula for additional bar top-style seating.
Brinkley RV’s use of pull-out compartments and drawers in the Model G is a masterclass in intelligent design.
The island houses a pull-out drawer that fits two kitchen-sized trash cans, and a sliding dog bowl compartment sits at the base. Above the farmhouse sink is a pull-down utensil tray. Above the adjacent solid-surface counterspace is a pull-down magnetic knife rack. Directly below is a pull-out butcher block cutting board that is replaceable. A massive pull-out pantry with fully-adjustable shelves constructed of all-real hardwood is housed next to the 24-inch oven with three-burner range and storage drawer. Above the range is a GE Profile convection microwave with built-in air fryer. The GE Energy Star 19 cu. ft. residential-style refrigerator includes an ice maker and filtered water.
Brinkley’s CraftSense wood trim construction and frameless windows with integrated screens and insulated blackout blinds provide a sleek and modern feel. There are also no floor vents for the furnace. Instead, the furnace vents through the cabinets at their base. The large Thomas Payne Collection four-seat sofa, with two heated seats including massage, sits inside a massive camp-side slide out for ultimate comfort. Directly across and angled is a 50-inch Phillips 4K Roku TV above a 5,000 BTU electric heat fireplace. When it comes to entertainment, an exclusive Rockford Fosgate audio system comes standard in the Model G. The OneControl app system that lets you control your RV’s functions right from your mobile device.
Haul toys and house guests in the Model G fifth wheel toy hauler prototype
A massive 11-foot separate garage area makes up the back of the Model G. The garage features a HappiJack bed lift with a large bed at the top and then opposing couches below. Both couches flip up independently to make room for storing toys while traveling. Securing those toys is also easy with three e-track rails along the floor. A loft area is accessible by a ladder in the garage. There’s also a half bath with access under the loft. While there are multiple gray tanks in the Model G, they are plumbed together to create 104 gallons of grey water storage.
A Fold ‘n Stow table between the couches provides dining space. Plus, a 43-inch Phillips 4K Roku TV in the garage provides more space for entertainment. There is also a campside garage door entry which includes a child and pet defender screen protector, slapshot screen door opener, screen assist bounceback technology and motion-activated LED lights under the steps. Finally, the zero-gravity ramp door doubles as a patio with a 1,500lb capacity. The guardrail fence for the patio easily folds out and latches for safety.
The Model G fifth wheel toy hauler includes a fuel tank for storing gasoline for your toys. This tank feeds the included 5,500 watt generator but that generator can also operate on propane. The standard propane capacity is two 30-pound tanks but the enclosure is large enough to hold 40-pound tanks. There is also an on-board air compressor for inflating tires on the trailer or the toys you bring.
Comfort fit for a king in this Brinkley RV luxury fifth wheel toy hauler
Floating stairs past the main entrance of the Model G leads you to the bathroom and bedroom. The stairs double as perfect storage for shoes. The full bathroom features a plethora of storage including a pull-out linen closet with adjustable shelves and a backlit recessed medicine cabinet. The one-piece 30-inch x 42-inch fiberglass shower surround features a residential shower system with head, body and handheld sprayer shower head that has a body spray function. No worries about hot water, as the Model G features a tankless water heater with 150-gallon fresh water capacity. Marine-grade neon shower lighting will also help set the mood and enable relaxation.
A memory foam king mattress sits inside the non-campside slide with traditional and USB outlets on either side. You’ll find plenty of storage with the walk-in closet, underbed storage and a sliding dresser top with hidden storage. This allows you to access to the dresser top compartment without removing all of your belongings from the top first. All of the drawers feature soft-close mechanisms and magnetic catches. Over the dresser is the Model G’s third TV, a 32-inch Phillips 4K Roku TV. There’s space and hookups in the corner closet for a stackable washer and dryer.
