S P A C E
Dolphin recreational vehicles have
graced American highways and
campgrounds since 1964. That kind of
longevity comes from a dedication to
quality, value and of course livability.
The 2007 models feature the most
spacious Dolphin floor plans ever
offered, with every area of the coach
thoughtfully arranged to maximize
usable storage and living space. The
rich textures of professionally designed
interior decors, fine wood finishes
and premium cabinetry hardware
exhibit a level of style and quality that
far surpasses the typical recreational
vehicle. Every aspect of Dolphin’s
interior is designed to emulate the
functionality, quality and style of a fine
residence.

ANOTHER NATIONAL RV ADVANTAGE!
GENUINE CORIAN®
Dolphin features genuine Corian® solid surface materials on the kitchen counter top and
bathroom lavy cabinet top. Other manufacturers cut costs by using imitation materials or
laminates cleverly disguised with solid edge moldings. But we
insist on the real thing. Nothing is as durable, impervious to
stains and resistant to scratching than genuine Corian®.

Whether the menu consists of TV
dinners or a full course gourmet meal,
Dolphin’s well-equipped kitchen turns
meal preparation from a job into an
enjoyable activity. Each of Dolphin’s
spacious kitchen configurations feature
an expansive counter topped with
genuine Corian®. The huge 12 cubic
foot four-door refrigerator with ice
maker* provides plenty of cold storage
for longer visits. A versatile convection
microwave makes cooking, baking
or reheating equally easy. Residential
quality cabinetry features solid wood
cabinet doors and drawer fronts as well
as stainless steel ball bearing drawer
guides and premium hardware. Handlaid vinyl tile flooring is both functional
and beautiful.
*All models except 5320, which features an 8 cubic foot
double door refrigerator.

ANOTHER NATIONAL RV ADVANTAGE!
ONE-PIECE FIBERGLASS SHOWER
Manufactured "in-house" at National RV to ensure quality, this shower is
crafted of thick fiberglass with plenty of reinforcement for a sturdy, rigid feel.
Step into a competitor's shower and you'll feel the difference as the plastic
or lower quality fiberglass shower pan gives under your weight. One-piece
construction means there are no seams in the shower enclosure where leaks
can develop or mold and mildew can thrive. Built for years of trouble-free use,
our one-piece reinforced fiberglass shower is truly a National RV Advantage!

ANOTHER NATIONAL RV ADVANTAGE!
DURASLIDE™ FLUSH WALL SLIDE-OUT SYSTEM
National RV’s exclusive DuraSlide™ flush wall slide-out system
provides more than just great looks. It is a testament to the
engineering and quality manufacturing that go into every
National RV motorhome.
SLIDE-OUT
SIDEWALL
FLUSH EXTERIOR SURFACE WITH SLIDE-OUT CLOSED
With the slide-out fully retracted, the side of the coach has a
smooth, flush surface at the slide-out seal. Double wipers with
integrated bulb seals provide a positive seal even when the
slide-out is in motion, keeping the weather outside and your cozy
climate inside.
WHY DON’T ALL MOTORHOMES COME WITH
FLUSH SLIDE-OUT SEALS?
National RV’s careful engineering and tight manufacturing
tolerances are what make the flush slide-out seal possible. The
system depends on the rigid coach framework that National RV’s
DuraFrame® and tubular steel coach body framework provides.
Brand X
Manufacturers who cut costs by building cheaper, less rigid
motorhomes need to hide the resulting gaps and poorer fit by
using a wide, protruding cover along the slide-out seams.
ANOTHER NATIONAL RV ADVANTAGE!
CIRCULAR AIRFLOW™ SUPERIOR CLIMATE CONTROL
Using a powerful Coleman® basement-mounted air conditioner
and heat pump combined with National RV’s dual in-ceiling
air ducts, Dolphin achieves residential style circular flow of
properly cooled or heated, filtered air. The Coleman® unit
features dual compressors which work together for optimum
cooling efficiency—the second unit comes online only when
needed. National RV’s unique rear output duct works in
concert with the ceiling vents and intake registers mounted
near the floor to provide
circular airflow for consistent,
even climate control.

D U R A F R A M E®
Every great home needs a solid
foundation, and that’s exactly what
National RV’s DuraFrame® Chassis
System and all-steel tubular coach body
construction provide. The DuraFrame®
is specifically engineered to provide
the strength that today’s multiple slideout motor homes require—all within the
chassis system itself. DuraFrame®’s all
steel, full welded system of tubular steel
risers, plate steel outriggers and trusslike engineering provide an abundance
of coach strength while enabling
cavernous basement storage spaces.
Other manufacturers rely on the coach
sidewalls to absorb much of the stresses
of travelling and bearing the coach’s

ANOTHER NATIONAL RV ADVANTAGE!
SUPERIOR COACH BODY CONSTRUCTION
National RV uses an advanced vacuum lamination process and the highest quality materials in the construction of
the fully insulated roof, walls and floor.
TUBULAR STEEL FRAME
Stronger and less susceptible to work fatigue than aluminum and won’t decay like wood.
CROWNED ROOF
The best RV roof in the business is built with arched tubular steel roof trusses. The crowned roof has radius edges for superior runoff.
FIBERGLASS ROOF SKIN
A seamless barrier against moisture; more durable and easier to maintain and repair than rubber or aluminum.
¼" STRUCTURE-WOOD®
This oriented strand board (OSB) from Weyerhaeuser carries a 25 year warranty and is used for both the roof deck and interior
ceiling panel.
EPS BLOCK FOAM INSULATION
Used throughout the coach in every laminated coach body component. This foam won’t settle or sag like spun fiberglass insulation.
Insulation is up to 5½” thick in the roof, and completely surrounds the coach living areas. It’s even in the floor!
¼" THICK MAHOGANY INTERIOR WALL PANEL
A thick, firm interior wall surface that’s tough enough to anchor our cabinetry—and whatever pictures or fixtures you
care to hang, wherever you want to hang them. Competitors’ thin interior wall surfaces “give” when you push
them, revealing their weakness beneath the surface, with reinforcements built in only where necessary to attach
cabinets. Our interior wall surfaces are ¼" thick and rigid throughout!
HIGH GLOSS GEL COAT EXTERIOR
The exterior sidewall surface is made of a thick, resilient fiberglass gel coat sheet that is vacuum laminated to the
sidewall structure. The result is excellent resistance to delamination and long-lasting great looks.
NOTE: Some components and their locations as shown in the photo above may differ
slightly from the actual components of the chassis used in this motor home. This photo
is intended only as a general representation of the Duraframe Chassis System and is
not intended to represent actual components and their locations.

ANOTHER NATIONAL RV ADVANTAGE!
KUSTOM-FIT® SEATING
Built especially for National RV, this cockpit and living area seating exceeds the comfort and quality of furniture in much more expensive
“highline” motorhomes. The foam of each seat cushion is cold poured as a single piece, molded in the correct shape. Competitors’ seats are
pieced together from blocks of foam which can come unglued and fall apart. This seat foam is so durable it carries a 10 year
warranty. The rugged seat frame is constructed of welded tubular steel for superior strength and carries a lifetime warranty.
