HENDERSON, Nev.--Rhino Outdoor International, Inc., which operates outdoor activity based businesses, including wholly owned subsidiary Rhino Off-Road Industries, Inc., released design plans for its expanded capacity, 4-seat model Rhino Off-Road RTV® that is being added to its product line-up. The new RR-RTV4 has seats for four passengers, or with the rear seats removed, has the capacity to carry a variety of emergency equipment, including a 300 gallon tank for fire retardant. Designed initially to fulfill the needs of emergency and rapid response crews to access remote, off-highway locations, the RR-RTV4 platform will also be available in a consumer version that is ideal for family off-roading activities.

The latest addition to the Rhino Off-Road family of innovative vehicles captures aspects of the original sport version of the Rhino Off-Road RTV in an expanded configuration. This version provides seats for four passengers, or the additional space can be utilized to carry gear or auxiliary equipment. The wheelbase has been extended by 28 inches to 130 inches and detachable side doors have been included in the design. The first prototype of the vehicle is currently being assembled at the ROI R&D plant in Henderson, Nevada and is scheduled for field testing within the next 60 days.

This RTV has been designed for the needs of rapid response providers, stated Pat Stimpson, marketing consultant to ROI. Fire fighters and law enforcement officers who work in off-road, rough terrain environments have told us that they need a vehicle with the 'go anywhere' capabilities of the Rhino RTV but need more capacity to carry special equipment and additional personnel the RR-RTV4 is a great solution.
