Remote control, motorized cargo screen now available for toy haulers
ELKHART, Ind. — United Shade is introducing the RV industry’s first motorized cargo screen for toy haulers. It can be operated by a key-fob remote control from up to 100 feet away. United Shade is an affiliate of Dicor Corporation, whose companies are leading suppliers for the RV industry.
Called the GateKeeper CargoScreen™, this new offering has a fully enclosed motor/spring mechanism, side channels, and a bottom rail for a clean, sharp appearance. It is made of heavy-duty screen material and uses an advanced technology Screenlock™ system to keep the screen in the sidetracks when hit or pushed. A manual GateKeeper is also available, which features a durable, fully contained locking mechanism on the bottom rail. The heavy-duty 12-volt motorized option requires no locking mechanism to remain secure.
The GateKeeper easily attaches to either the rear wall or the interior sidewalls for added flexibility and uses universal mounting hardware. It can also be customized for different size openings. Its dark screen provides UV protection for interior furnishings and keeps the RV clean and secure while owners are away. A custom graphic can also be printed on the screen.
Currently the GateKeeper is offered to OEM customers, but United Shade is also expecting it to be an aftermarket add-on for RV dealers and their customers.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the RV experience and the GateKeeper is one product that will work very well for RVers,” said Braden McCormick, general manager of United Shade. “For keeping out insects, sun and other things, it is a valuable addition to any RV, and one that requires minimal installation time.”
“The other thing that comes with the GateKeeper is what comes with all companies associated with Dicor Corporation. And that’s excellent service,” said McCormick. “We work with manufacturers to effectively integrate our products into their production lines. We will also deliver product on weekends and holidays — whatever it takes to keep production moving. Our aftermarket customers can count on the same kind of attention to delivery and detail.”
“Because we are constantly developing new offerings and innovations in window treatments, United Shade has the broadest range of window coverings for every type of RV. And if we don’t have a suitable product for a particular need, we’ll either find one or make one,” said McCormick.
The GateKeeper CargoScreen will be on display along with a record number of other new products from Dicor Corporation at the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Nov. 30 to Dec. 1. Visit the Dicor Corporation booth, No. 260, North Wing Lobby.
