Most models are available with the exclusive Verti-Go electric power bed which allows the dual beds to be lower or raised at the touch of a button. The bottom bed can be accessed without a ladder for easy entry. All models are true WIDE-Body design with a 102" exterior width which allows two average size quads to be loaded side by side.
Vortex has a rich interior and sporty new exterior. With raised panel interior cabinet doors and designer fabrics, Vortex interiors are distinguished and elegant. Platinum colored hardware and kitchen sinks big enough to hold a pasta pot, not only look great and are functional.
The Vortex Viper is the Ultimate toybox! Viper features laminated aluminum frame sidewalls with a smooth gloss fiberglass exterior. Viper interiors include upgraded fabrics, residential cabinet construction and Maple finish solid wood cabinet doors. The easy store furniture is so comfortable, it is easy to forget you are not at home.
