VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor Now Available For 2017 Ford F-250 & F-350




VMAC has launched the latest UNDERHOOD30 air compressor for 2017 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. This rotary screw air compressor is designed to fit with the Ford 6.2L V8 gas engine, while ensuring the new truck warranty remains intact.

"Out of 25,000 VMAC UNDERHOOD air compressors installed on work trucks worldwide, about 15,000 have been on Ford trucks. We're proud to offer this 30 CFM air compressor for 2017 Ford trucks to meet our customers' needs as they upgrade their vehicles," says Mike Pettigrew, VMAC's Marketing Manager.

The VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor for the 2017 Ford 6.2L V8 Gas is the lightest weight mobile air compressor available, weighing just 62lbs (32kg). This lightweight air compressor reduces truck GVW by up to 290lbs, offering Ford owners better fuel economy. It's also compact, freeing up to 23 cubic feet in the truck bed, allowing for more cargo space.

With up to 30 CFM at 100% duty cycle, it is the perfect solution for light-duty applications including tire servicing, utility servicing, and forklift repair. Even in extreme desert and arctic climates, the VMAC UNDERHOOD30 Air Compressor will continue to operate, as it is installed under the hood of the truck, protected from the elements.

"This is the third UNDERHOOD air compressor we've launched in 2017," says Mike Pettigrew. "The UNDERHOOD30 for 2017 Ford 6.2L V8 Gas trucks follows the recent launches of the UNDERHOOD30 for 2017 Ford Transit EcoBoost vans, and the UNDERHOOD70 for GMC's 2017 Sierra Duramax Diesel trucks. VMAC is committed to adding to the product line of compact and powerful mobile air compressors as new work trucks and vans are released."

BRANDFX LAUNCHES THE ADVANCED COMPOSITE UTILITYFX™ CUTAWAY

BrandFX™, the leader in advanced composite work trucks, has launched the UtilityFX™. The UtilityFX allows for an increase in mobile operation efficiency by providing optimal access to all storage areas and organizational compartments.

WTS17 - UtilityFX

Like all BrandFX products, the UtilityFX was built to withstand up to 20 years of continual use. Due to its advanced composite materials construction, this all-new utility unit has an extremely high life cycle value. This allows for strong resistance to corrosion and oxidation. That composite construction also provides a substantial reduction in vehicle weight, resulting in reduced fuel costs. The lighter weight also lessens stress forced on tires, brakes and suspension systems – this can reduce maintenance costs significantly.

This all-new utility service unit eliminates the need to purchase ordinary full-size vans – when it’s time to replace the vehicle, the UtilityFX can be removed and reinstalled.  Additionally, even after extensive use, the advanced composite body will remain in a like-new condition. The UtilityFX is available in 15”D x 42”H packs, as well as a 36” canopy above pack and 124” long body.

BrandFX is the world’s largest producer of advanced composite service truck bodies, providing line bodies, service bodies, inserts, tonneau covers, and toppers to many of the world’s largest utility and service fleets – including 5 out of the top 6 U.S. service fleets. These composite bodies are proven to offer the highest life cycle value, delivering 20-plus years of effective service while maintaining their quality finish and appearance. Because BrandFX believes in American-made quality, the company manufactures all truck bodies in the U.S. For more information, visit BrandFXBody.com

FORD TRANSIT, WINNEBAGO HELP REVIVE VAN-BASED MOTORHOME SEGMENT AND BUILD LOYAL FOLLOWERS

Hero Image


  • After double-digit growth in 2016, van-based motorhomes are projected to become the fastest-growing segment in the motorhome industry for 2017; Ford Transit-based Winnebago Paseo is a newcomer in the Class B segment
  • Paseo and Fuse motorhomes are the latest Winnebago products built on a Ford platform – a collaborative history that dates back nearly half a century and includes the iconic Ford E-Series chassis and gas-powered F-53 Class A motorhome chassis
  • Ford Transit-based Fuse owners like the ride, driveability and power of the available 3.2-liter Power Stroke® I-5 diesel engine and performance; already drawing loyal followers, at a recent get-together in Cosby, Tennessee, Fuse campers shared their enthusiasm and pride of ownership

DEARBORN, Mich., As Don and Sonya Pace backed their Ford Transit-based motorhome into a spot at Smoky Mountain Premier RV Resort in Cosby, Tennessee, the spring Winnebago Fuse owners’ get-together was officially under way. Setting up camp and meeting friends is a source of pride for these new Fuse owners and founders of the annual gathering.

The get-together is one of a handful of enthusiast events held around the country each year where owners of Winnebago motorhomes gather to enjoy the outdoors and talk about their travels aboard their Transit-based RVs. The Fuse, and its cousin, Winnebago Paseo, are among a fast-growing legion of motorhomes being built on the Ford Transit van platform.

Based on the company’s global van platform, Transit was introduced in the United States for 2015. Since then, the domestic RV industry has been quick to embrace the platform, which offers gas, diesel and CNG/propane gaseous prep options, as well as three available roof heights, three overall lengths and two wheelbases. Transit has been a boon for companies like Winnebago, which are creating a burgeoning Class B motorhome segment in addition to new products from the Transit cutaway chassis for the larger Class C segment.

“We looked at a lot of competitors, but once we saw how open the Fuse felt inside and how it still drives like a go-anywhere car, we were hooked,” said Don Pace. “We like that it’s built on a Ford platform – not just because it has great performance, but because there are more Ford dealers around the country, so there’s that peace of mind. We just love our Fuse.”

The Fuse uses a dual-rear-wheel Transit van cutaway chassis for a full-feature, 24-foot Class C motorhome with kitchen, bath and a slideout – for comfortable sleeping for four adults. The Paseo is a high-roof, extended-length Class B motorhome featuring a full bath, kitchen with refrigerator, and sleeping for two adults.

Industry-wide Class B sales grew 36 percent in the first three months of 2017. As a leader in the commercial van/cutaway and chassis segment for nearly 40 years, Ford has a long history with Winnebago and other leading motorhome manufacturers. The E-Series cutaway is still a top RV platform in the Class C segment, while Ford F-53 remains among the most popular gas-powered chassis for larger Class A motorhomes.

“Our customers have responded incredibly well to the new Transit platform,” said Russ Garfin, Winnebago product manager. “They love the driveability and the smooth ride, and the feedback on both of the engines we use – the EcoBoost® gas and five-cylinder diesel – has been great.”

Winnebago has more than 130 dealers offering Transit-based motorhomes across the United States and Canada. With gas prices the lowest they have been in years, Garfin expects he’ll be designing more versions off the Transit platform.

“With low fuel costs and people’s desire to disconnect and get away from it all, we expect sales of Transit-based motorhomes will continue to grow,” said Garfin. “With easy-to-use RVs like the Fuse and Paseo, there are more products for a wide range of customers.”

As for the Winnebago Fuse owners’ spring get-together, Sonya Pace said they had a great time in the Smoky Mountains and got to meet some of the greatest people on earth. “We got to talk about our Fuses and where we’ve been,” she said. “The new owners get help from the experienced owners.”

And they’re already planning next year’s event, posting pictures to Facebook and Instagram, making new friends and sharing travel stories. “We’re expecting more at our next event, which we hope to do in the western U.S. because we have a lot of members out there too,” said Sonya Pace.
