Default hilo vs towlite etc

I have seen some ads posted referring to a unit being a towlite, Hi-lo, or funlite. I'm just wondering were these just made in different years and named differently at the time, or could you find these from the same year? For instance was there a towlite 17' and a hi-lo 17' in the same given year?

They were distinctly different models with different quality and weight levels. Hi-Lo was the original model with the highest quality materials and trim, it eventually became known as the "Classic" model. The Funlite was lighter-weight model that came out in about 1987. The Towlight came out in 1992 and it was the lightest and lowest priced model. It had a wood framework initially but eventually replaced it with an aluminum framework in the walls. The Funlite was phased out after the Towlite came into its own.

Here is a link to the brochures that Hi-Lo had over the years. I'm sure you will find it interesting. The brochures are in PDF format.

Thanks Rich. So it appears the smallest the classic line would have come in for the years 2002 - 2006 would have been the 23' model. As I am looking for a 17 or 19 from those years, I will be getting a towlite.
