inTech Sol set for November production

First introduced at September’s RV Open House in Elkhart, Indiana, the inTech Sol was one of the most talked about trailers to be seen. Designed with ques from inTech’s popular Luna teardrop, the Sol is inTech’s first venture into the travel trailer segment. The prototype unit I saw at Elkhart had just been finished days prior to the show. And despite the time crunch, inTech put together a fine looking unit right out the box.

Production of the Sol will commence in mid-November at the company’s Nappanee, Indiana based factory, with shipments to dealers beginning in December. inTech’s Rich Schnippel stated, “We have been developing Sol over the past 6 months and our dealers and retail customers alike have been eagerly awaiting the introduction…some dealers have already taken pre-production deposits.”

From a press release from inTech this week, the Sol has an overall length of just under 20’ and will comfortably sleep up to four adults. The rear offers a true queen-size bed and the front U-shaped dinette can quickly convert to sleep an additional two people. Sol also includes a modern and stylish kitchen featuring a stainless steel farm sink and a two-burner LP stove with a case iron grate. The wetbath includes a porcelain toilet and is larger than most in this class of camper. The interior height of Sol at the peak is 6’ 6” and according to Schnippel takes advantage of what they call “Step Forward Design”. Schnippel stated, “We focused on utilizing the space over the A-frame with the front cap leaning forward, it’s not only very aesthetically pleasing, it creates an abundance of space you otherwise wouldn’t have available.” The weight of the Sol will be between 3050-3200 lbs with a tongue weight of 400 lbs.

Every inTech RV is built utilizing an all-aluminum, all-tube, fully welded cage frame. inTech designs, engineers and builds their frames in-house. Sol not only takes advantage of their aluminum frame, but also incorporates fiberglass sidewalls, a one-piece fiberglass roof and a composite engineered floor void of any wood.

“Small trailers need to take advantage of great flow or they begin to feel confined, which is a big turn-off for buyers. Our Step Forward Design focuses on taking advantage of the space above a person’s beltline and in particular at head height, if these areas are open, the trailer will feel much larger,” Schnippel confirmed.

Options on the Sol include an outdoor kitchen, an outdoor kitchen with 120V/12V refrigerator, and a 10′ awning.

The Sol is by far the hottest new travel trailer in the small trailer segment of the industry for 2019. Compared to other trailers in the same class as the Sol, the prices are on par with the competition, as MSRP will run around $30K. I’ve see pre-order prices at dealers just a tick under $27K. And I fully suspect the Sol will be built with the same solid reputation as their Flyer teardrop-sized trailers are, which are some of the finest in the industry. So with that in mind, I fully expect the Sol to be a big player in this class and size of travel trailers.

    Have you ever heard of Taylor Coach? It is a small family-owned company located in Canada about an hour from Toronto. You want a well-built light travel trailer? They are absolutely the best!!! Solid wood construction with aluminum underbelly and aluminum roof.

    The trailer we bought is built on a 17′ chassis, double axle, and comes in under 2500 lbs. Interior features include a full permanent double bed; 48″ dinette that can be folded into another double bed; an overhead bunk; a good sized bathroom with toilet, sink, shower and ample storage; a nice-kitchen with good counter space, excellent storage capacity and a 3-burner stove, oven, and 6.5 cu ft double-door refrigerator. I also have a big pantry closet and underbed storage. This company personalizes each trailer according to what the customer wants. We like to read so ours has a bookcase!!

    This company does not advertise at all!!!! Their product is their advertisement and right now there is a 2year waiting period to get one. It is so worth the wait!!! We love ours❤.

    The company is family owned and has been in business over 50 years. They deliberately want to remain small and control the quality of their product. They also are a family who enjoy camping themselves so they built the trailers with practicality in mind. I can’t say enough good about their integrity and the integrity of their product.

    Just thought you should check it out…..

    Hi. Have you ever heard of Taylor Coach? It is a small, family-owned business in Canada about an hour from Toronto. We have a 17′ travel trailer and we absolutely love it!!!

    Ours is wood construction with an aluminum underbelly and aluminum roof. It is built on a double axle with a 2″ bike receiver on the back. Inside we have a permanent double bed; a 48″ dinette that folds down into another double bed; an overhead bunk (suitable for children); a full bathroom with toilet, sink, shower and ample storage; a nice-sized kitchen with good counter space, a 3-burner stove, oven, double sink and abundant cupboards; a pantry; a 6.5 cu ft refrigerator with separate freezer compartment; and a ton of storage under the bed. All of this comes in under 2500 lbs!

    They custom build every trailer. We like to read so ours include a bookcase!

    Taylor Coach does not advertise at all. They sell by word of mouth from very happy owners. Right now there is a tw0-year wait between when you place your order and when it is complete. I hesitate to even mention this company to you because they intentionally want to remain small – that way they totally control the quality of their product — but it is so refreshing in the RV business to know there is a quality builder with integrity and a quality product.

      Hi Carol,

      I have watched every You Tube video that Brad Taylor has produced! His level of customization is impressive. Glad to hear his business is doing well. We own a Casita, that we love, but if we were in the market for trailer, I would consider TT made by Taylor!

      Take care,

      Dean

    InTech Sol looks great, particularly from the front and side. I like the interior as well. Great size for a couple!

    According to your promo material, “The Sol is by far the hottest new travel trailer in the small trailer segment of the industry for 2019.” Really. Hyperbole?
