Crawl Space Chassis

Truly a step forward in chassis engineering, the crawlspace concept allows for mechanical systems such as the heating, water lines, and electrical wiring, to run in a dedicated cavity (the "crawlspace") above the holding tanks, water tank, and slide support components. The cavity is insulated and heated, helping to prevent water lines from freezing. KRV P/N 667546. US Patent Application Pending.

High Flow Rate Ductwork for A Recreational Vehicle (Blade)

A major advancement in the design of A/C ducting for RVs, the Blade concept incorporates advanced ducting design to facilitate improved airflow throughout the trailer. Performance improvements of 30% or greater were achieved over baseline designs. The trailer remains cool and comfortable on even the hottest days. KRV part numbers: 643259; 643260; 561451; 641574; 641575. US Patent No. US 10,710,427 B2.

Diffuser Head for An Air Conditioning System

This patent is for the visible part of the Blade system. The diffuser uniques design takes the improved airflow and distributes it inside the RV to promote natural convection. By evenly distributing cool air in a 360-degree pattern, the diffuser eliminates hot spots in the RV. KRV part numbers: 652781; 652782; 679092; 679093. US Patent Approved.

Composite Flooring for Recreational Vehicles

Hitch Vision: Fifth Wheel Hook-up Assist

Hitch Vision aids the driver when hooking up by providing a reflective, mirrorlike surface that is angled so that both the truck's hitch and the fifth wheel's pin can be seen by the driver in their rearview mirror. This allows them to better guide the truck into and engage the hitch. KRV part numbers: 531349; 627156; 630183. US Patent Nos. US7,775,543; US 7,500,690 B2.

Recreational Vehicle Chassis (Bent Tube Front Crossmember)

Developed to increase the turning radius for fifth wheels, this single tube bent-tube design angles the outer extremities of the tube by 20 degrees and then is attached to the side rails. The single tube design eliminates some welding steps and improves overall strength. US Patent No. US 7,938,427 B2.

KeyTV Multisource-signal Controller

KeyTV seamlessly integrates over-the-air, satellite and cable connections into a single access point. Key benefits include better signal delivery; auto-sensing technology that identifies available feeds and eliminate A/B switches; and plug-an-play satellite installation. US Patent Pending.

Giggy Box Travel Trailer 12V Distribution Center

Similar to automotive electrical system design, Keystone's Giggy Box consolidates 12V wiring into a single connection with an optional battery disconnect. US Patent Pending.
