hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV in Grand Rapids Michigan today. I'm here to tell you about the 2017 aerolite 174 e this is an excellent expandable unit also known as a hybrid camper because we have our four walls, but then we have the tent style bed let's go ahead and talk about some of the outside features and then we'll make our way in. So, one of the cool things about the tent style campers our hybrid campers like this is the fact that it's nice and lightweight and gives you a ton of room which again we'll see when we go inside their neat thing, if you've had a pop up this is a huge step up because your time savings will be phenomenal, if you take a look underneath you will notice you no longer have any bars or supports or anything that you have to put in there because it utilizes two cables one on each side and each bed can support up to 1,100 pounds also they've come a long ways in the fabric material here it's almost more of a vinyl now and.
So, you don't have to worry about touching it and having rain come through or anything like that it works wonderful it won't mold and anything nearly as easily as it used to all you have to do is when it's done raining just make sure you dry it out take good care of it and it will last you a long long time take a look underneath here a moment you will see that you have your propane tank cover there this will have 220 pound propane tanks in it. So, lots of propane for you right behind that are your battery rails there. So, you have a spot to put your battery box and then you have the black diamond plating here coming up the front, if we come around to the side this unit does have excellent storage in it especially for being a hybrid camper you see that you have the front storage there going all the way through and then you have a little bit of side storage right over here.
So, good storage here it's a magnetic latch. So, you don't have to worry about anything ripping out on you and then right next to that take a look at this this is Solar prep so, if you're going out you're doing some boondocking you want a trickle charge your batteries excellent just by the portable Experion pails with the charger plug it in right there and it will start to trickle charge your battery. So, very cool right up top here is your power awning touch of a, button to roll that out same thing that rolled back in and it does have an LED light strip underneath.
So, you don't have to hang up your your Christmas lights or anything to flip a switch and you have your light right here at night, if you like to watch TV outside great we can certainly do that you'll see you have electrical outlets right here as well as a cable outlet. So, you can go ahead and plug in the TV put a table or something here and put the TV right on top of it and that way you have the outside TV, if listen to music is more your speed not an issue you do have two outside speakers those are controlled by the multi media center inside, but that unit is bluetooth capable so, if you have a smartphone or tablet you can sit right out here and be able to control that to take a look right there at the wheel you will see this is aluminum alloy wheel which is really nice not only does it look great, but it also helps prevent any kind of rust or corrosion and it is in nitrogen fill tired sitting into the 174 is quite simple as well you have two steps here the first one is pretty low to the ground. So, it is a nice easy transition into this RV we're coming on to the back side this is the second bed right here and again as.
I mentioned putting these down is very simple these are your locks right here these lovers all you have to do is you undo these and roll them over, if you take a look right here you will see what those go into. So, these have locks on them as well for when you're traveling, but again it's easy to set this up and tear it down with one person also, if you take a look underneath here you have your square tubular bumper and you will notice you have a spare tire there. So, you know, if you ever do have to use that, if you ever get a flat it is quite easy to go ahead and grab that and change your tire out come around to the off door side real quick here this is a majority of our connections on you have your 30 amp detachable power cord right here your terminations are right down below this unit does have a great and a black tank on board and that is where you would dump those bull fat right there you will also see you have a light here in case you're hooking up or disconnecting at night or anything like me you know.
I don't get to go camping until. I get out of work. So, by the time.
I actually get to my campsite generally starting to get dark this is a really nice feature to have here also you see a black tank flush no longer do you have to take a hose and stick it down your toilets wash out your black tank when you're done camping just take that hose screw it in right there a black tank has sprayers built in it and it will wash it out for you also, if you need some water access outside you will see this unit has a spray port as a nice little hose inside you can hook that up right there and spray off whatever you need welcome to the inside is 2017 aerolite 174 e this particular model is in the nightscape interior let's start off on the kitchen. So, you'll see this is a huge countertop space what they did give you full residential features you're able to have a double bowl sink in here instead of a single your nice big bowl on the left smaller one here on the right and a high rise faucet for washing dishes also they gave you a three burner cooktop again a travel trailer this size most of the time you'd have a single bowl sink and just a double burner so. I like that they gave you a triple burner here plus, if you put a cover on the cooktop here and your sink top covers there you can make this all usable prep space underneath your cooktop is your oven so, if you want to do some baking that is the place to do it there and a nice pullout drawer here this is nice and deep this is a good place to put your pop and pants.
So, we open this guy up you will see that this is nice and open this is a great place for a trash can of course you have a window here to let in some natural light LED lights throughout this coach which LED lights are great too not only do they put out a fraction of the heat they also use a fraction of the power that's a big deal, if you're out boondocking you can run about nine or ten LED lights you'll use about the same power as one of your halogen lights. So, definitely a big difference there, if you take a look right up top this is some nice extra pantry space of course this is your goodie bag when you get the camper right next to that is your microwave stainless steel you know continuing that look throughout here the weighted unit is on there three thousand two hundred sixty pounds. So, it's under that thirty five hundred pound mark which is pretty important when it comes to your towing also right here is your hood with a light and a fan we know about further you have your nice glass fronts here the frosted glass.
So, you can't see what's in there which is good, but when you open it up of course that is your pantry you know. So, any extra foodstuffs you want to put up there that's the place to do it LED light right here windows on both sides of the camper. So, you can get nice cross breeze coming through here and you will also see an electrical outlet there so, if you need to plug anything in whether it's a in a laptop coffee maker or whatever that is the place you can do it right here is your jackknife sofa the cool thing about jackknife sofa is not only it's comfortable to sit on which you can see it also kind of a side note this one has armrests you don't see that very often a jackknife sofa.
I do like the fact they give you those they pull out, but. I like the fact they included them and then this does drop down into a bed nice and easy you will see right down here by the way is your furnace. So, this unit does have heat also has AC.
I can show you that a little bit later now right up front is one of your two beds probably a primary bed here these are the cables. I was talking about when we were outside again 1,100 pound weight capacity on that. I know it's hard to believe, but that is what they rated at.
So, in order to set this up. I do have a video which demonstrates that, but. I'll give you a quick rundown you undo those latches outside you fold this down you take this hook right here they'll clip on the end and then you can adjust your tension right here lock it in place right there super simple and easy you have your mattress right here nice and thick take a look at that you know that sucker is nice and comfortable to lay on right there, if you take a look over to the side this is your dinette space this is where he'll be sitting eating meals you need to play a game or anything you have a nice area in which you can do it this is a cool thing about the dinette this does drop down into a bed you take a look right here you'll see that you can just remove those legs the table will sit right down you can take the back cushions fill it in and that will create additional sleeping space again in conjunction with your jackknife sofa there is also an electrical outlet underneath so, if you need to plug anything in laptops tablet lights at the table you can do that there this is the multimedia Center that.
I had mentioned previously this is what controls your speakers outside as well as inside is a DVD player so, if you want to watch a movie you can plug these audio-video Jack into a TV and be able to watch it through there of course right there some additional storage which is nice right here is your TV antenna pretty cool. So, the Weingard raise our antenna the reason. I like this it's low-profile you no longer have to crank it up to find signal and remember to crank it back down you're done camping all you have to do is you just push it in and turn it and it will find the best signal for you speakers here again as.
I mentioned controlled by that multimedia Center right over here is your stainless steel panel norcold fridge freezer combo take a look at that you can see it's nice and spacious plenty of room there this guy does run off both propane and electric and also has an automatic switch over take a look up top there's your AC unit that. I promised you so, if it does get too hot even though it can open up all the windows also the bed's unzips oh those are screened. So, that again you get a great cross breeze through a hybrid like this, but, if it's too hot you can rely on the a3 there and then right underneath your fridge you have this nice big deep drawer again come on for additional pots and pans or pantry whatever else you want right in there right back here is the bathroom you can see down in the corner here is your foot flush lover toilet plenty of leg room you can see the Neo angle shower there with your shower pan coming up the side here you have some shelves as well as your hand wand and that a nice big skylight up top we also notice you have your vent fan right here off to the side you have mirrored medicine cabinet with good storage behind that and underneath here you can see your electrical outlet as well as your sink top and vanity and additional storage right down there now, if you come to the back this of course is your secondary bed right back here you will notice electrical outlet down on bottom case you can plug in a cell for anything at night same style to set this up you know it's super easy you do have a curtain here for privacy as well nice little shelf up top for anything that you need to store there, but alright folks that pretty much wraps it up against the 2017 air light one 74 a this one is in the nightscape interior, if you're interested in this RV and you'd like price and availability.
