RVIA Park Model Technical Subcommittee Meets

RVIA held its first standards technical subcommittee meeting on the ANSI A119.5 Standard and handbook on April 16 in South Bend, IN.

The subcommittee, chaired by John Walters of Cavco/Fleetwood, is made up of technical and engineering experts who reviewed and made recommendations regarding over 100 proposed changes to park model standards, including ANSI A119.5, NEC Article 552 and the A119.5 Handbook.

In addition to Chairman Walters, the Committee includes Gary Duncan, Forest River; Jerry Glenn, Kropf Manufacturing; Jerry Miller, Woodland Park; Bob Phillips, Dutchman Manufacturing; Jimmy Sellers, Chariot Eagle; and John Soard, Fairmont Homes.

“RVIA is a well-oiled machine when it comes to standards,” said RVIA Executive Director of Recreational Park Trailers Matt Wald. “Getting the park model technical experts working with our standards department on these code change proposals is a critical first step in bringing the park model standards and handbook up to date. It was an excellent and productive meeting.”

The 2014 revision cycle of ANSI A119.5 is well under way, with the target date of publication set for October 15, 2014.

If anyone is interested in being considered for appointment on to this technical subcommittee please contact Kent Perkins, Senior Director – Standards at (800) 336-1054, ext. 336 or by email: kperkins@rvia.org.
