Lippert takes four-award haul at SEMA Show

RV accessories and components expert Lippert is celebrating after picking up four awards during its inaugural attendance at the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The company was represented by its brands ARIES, LUVERNE, CURT, Ranch Hand and UWS, with products from LUVERNE and CURT picking up prizes in the New Product awards and the Global Media awards.

And the winners are…

More than 1,300 products were submitted into the SEMA 2021 New Product awards, with Lippert products the LUVERNE Impact shock-absorbing rear bumper step and CURT Multi-Pro/Multi-Flex Tailgate Saver named as two winners.

The Impact bumper features a reinforced heavy-wall steel tube construction that provides superior protection for work vans by absorbing rear impact up to 5 mph.

The GM Multi-Pro/Multi-Flex Tailgate Saver is designed to save Chevrolet or GMC truck tailgates from costly damage by working in sync with the trucks’ electronics to prevent the tailgate from folding down and being damaged by the hitch accessory. Both products are engineered to take innovative steps forward in tailgate and rear bumper step technology.


The SEMA Global Media awards are chosen through a voting process comprising international journalists. In this category, Lippert products the CURT QuickPin Coupler and Echo under-dash trailer brake controller were named as winners.

The QuickPin Coupler features an innovative design that allows for quick coupling with just one 1/2” hitch pin: a revolutionary design that is unlike any similar products on the market. It was engineered to operate without a latch to make trailer hook-up as simple as possible – so coupling the trailer is as easy as dropping the trailer tongue onto the ball and sliding in the pin, ultimately saving time and avoiding hassle.

The Echo trailer brake controller plugs into a vehicle and wirelessly connects to the user’s smartphone, allowing them to control and monitor all trailer brake activity right from their own device. It comes with a customizable app for Apple or Android.
