In anticipation of launching their new R16 Fifth Wheel, Reese® is offering two free online seminars to demonstrate its unique features.


Plymouth, Michigan Cequent Performance Products’ Reese brand will launch their newest fifth wheel hitch in the fourth quarter of 2011.  In anticipation, they have scheduled two free online seminars to help demonstrate the unique features of this all new product.


“The seminar will focus on the features of the new fifth wheel line as well as the strategic direction of the fifth wheel category,” states Paul Caruso, Vice President/General Manager of Towing Products and New Business Development. He continues, “There will be two separate seminars available, one targeted to wholesale distributors, the other to dealers/installers of the Reese® fifth wheel line.  Separating these groups into different presentations will allow us to communicate a more direct launch plan and provide resources fixated on their core needs and requirements.”


Online seminars will be held October 25th & 26th, 2011.  Online registration is required for the event; no registrations via phone will be accepted.  There is no fee to attend.  This seminar requires internet access (visual portion) and VOIP or phone connection (audio portion).
