Hauling a fifth wheel has never been easier with Keystone RV’s new Arcadia Super Lite series. Specifically designed for the latest half-ton tow vehicles, the all new Arcadia Super Lite floor plan features the style and innovation of a fifth wheel in a lighter and smaller model. First launched in early 2021, the Keystone RV Arcadia received widespread acclaim for its innovation and styling. Like Arcadia’s full-size floorplans, Super Lite models are engineered to feel more open and expansive than traditional RVs, therefore incorporating a unique front cap and LCI’s Space Saver upper deck chassis design.
General RV Center was the debut partner of Keystone RV for the reveal of its new Arcadia Super Lite models at the 2022 America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa. The featured floor plan is the 293SL, which reflective of its name, measures at 29′ 3″ in length. If you’re looking for a family RV that combines lightweight design with luxury features, than the Keystone RV Arcadia Super Lite could be the perfect RV for you.
Take towing an RV to a new level with an Arcadia Super Lite fifth wheel
The Arcadia Super Lite RV features upgraded critical components for strength, durability and longevity. All axle hubs come with a heavy-duty 7,000 lb. bearing package and upgraded spring assembly. EquaFlex rubberized equalizer system absorbs road shock and reduces chucking for better stability. The Dexter Nev-R-Adjust forward self-adjusting brakes activate during every forward stop for 50% better braking distance. The Arcadia Super Lite fifth wheel even features a 2″ accessory hitch with 300 lb. storage capacity for those extra add-ons that might be needed.
Arcadia Super Lite RV goes heavy on comfort and storage
Utilizing the Arcadia’s unique forward leaning cap and Space Saver upper deck, the Super Lite offers an exceedingly livable space full of storage, upgraded features and superior comfort. The 293SL floor plan offers a spacious U-shaped dinette that doubles as extra sleeping space for up to two guests. The private master suite comes equipped with a Serta Series queen-size memory foam mattress with underbed storage and full wardrobe slide with drawers. Linen storage can be found in the full bathroom with a large shower. LED reading lights will help keep things a little brighter at night. Along the headboard and in the side end table are charging outlets to provide the power needed for your electronic devices.
Class and comfort in every luxurious detail
Stunning, bright and residential. The Arcadia Super Lite’s Bailey decor will turn heads at the campsite. Cognac-colored seating paired with soft plaid accents offer a very chic, trendy vibe. Light countertops, wallcoverings and wide-plank Hyperdeck laminated flooring provide a light and bright atmosphere, perfect for you to enjoy every second in this RV.
Theater-style seats in the living space provide maximum comfort across from the entertainment center that includes a 5,100 BTU electric fireplace with thermostat control and remote. The comfort continues into the U-shaped dinette, providing ample space for dining or entertaining.
Residential hardware and hidden hinges on the cabinetry produce a sleek and modern feel. The 10 cu. Ft. 12-volt “solar friendly” refrigerator with dent-resistant doors and 21″ Furrion range with Piezo ignition and glass stovetop cover provide the tools for any chef on the road. Also, the “On Demand” tankless RV water heater supplies the hot water you need, when you need it.
Revolutionary design in the Arcadia Super Lite fifth wheel
The new Arcadia Super Lite RV has several captivating features, including the new Next-Generation Crawlspace Chassis. Dubbed “NGC2”, this new crawl space drops the cross members 3” below the two 10” I-beams that run the length of the frame. This creates a cavity that runs the length and width of the RV, much like the crawl space foundation of a home.
Keystone leverages its innovative NGC2 frame design with state-of-the-art heating and cooling to deliver seasonal camping confidence. The Arcadia Super Lite’s unique NGC2 chassis design has two chambers. These work as airlocks to protect the RV’s interior from extreme temperatures. Water lines, tanks, and HVAC components are located in these heated chambers surrounded by three layers of insulation for additional protection and peace-of-mind.
This new crawl space feature allows air ducts, plumbing and Keystone’s color-coded wiring to run freely throughout the underside of the RV. The result is fewer joints, bends, and elbows in those important RV systems, creating more durable connections and fewer failure points. This means your RV water, heat, and electricity will still work after thousands of miles of bone-jarring roads on your way to great destinations.
Stay comfortable in any conditions
Keeping the Arcadia Super Lite warm in the colder months and cool during the summer is a breeze. The NGC2 chassis design introduces straight-run ducting from the RV furnace to vents. This maximizes efficiency and minimizing potential air leaks seen in most systems that have joints and flexible ductwork. The Arcadia Super Lite RV also features Keystone’s exclusive Blade Pure high-performance air handling system. Blade Pure technology increases RV A/C airflow by as much as 20%. It’s tested to provide stronger air filtration and sound dampening – all adding up to a cooler, cleaner and quieter coach.
All Arcadia RVs feature state-of-the-art HVAC equipment including:
- A 35,000 BTU high output RV furnace
- RV fireplace with 5,000 BTU heating element
- Coleman Mach Q Series 15,000 BTU RV air conditioner with Merv 9 residential air filtration
- An optional 13,500 BTU RV bedroom air conditioner ducted to provide additional cooling for that room and the rest of the RV
Convenience is king in the Arcadia Super Lite fifth wheel
The Arcadia Super Lite’s storage compartments are fully-lined and free from exposed wires, plumbing and other components. The front pass-through storage has equal-sized RV doors on both sides that feature d-ring tie-downs. To alleviate the need to unload the RV’s exterior storage to access controls, the Arcadia team moved all controls out of storage into separate, easy-to-access compartments. On every fifth wheel, the convenience center will be located behind the pass-through storage on the off-campsite side. Leveling controls also have been separated and pulled into their own housing at the front of the coach. Both control centers feature intuitive visual cues for operation.
The Arcadia Super Lite’s stand-alone convenience center consolidates all connections in one easy to access location. The all-in-one lighted convenience center includes:
- Remote dump valve pull handles for easy access and operation
- A combination city water fill and power fresh tank fill connection, eliminating slower gravity fill option
- KeyTV connection center for cable and satellite hook-ups
- Roof-mounted satellite connection with pass-through wiring
- Black tank flush connection
- Water heater bypass valves
- Easy winterization connection
- Outside shower with attachment hose
- Valve settings from tank fills, drains and other operations
