High-end diesel pusher manufacturer Country Coach Inc. has announced plans to expand its 1,700-employee Oregon work force to add two new Class A motorhomes to its lineup – an entry-level Tribute retailing for about $250,000 and a luxury-class Rhapsody priced in the million-dollar range.
Both coaches are expected to debut late this summer.
“This current work force expansion allows us to offer new motor coaches in more segments of the luxury market while continuing to enhance our high product quality,” reports Jay Howard, president of the National RV Holdings Inc. subsidiary in Junction City, Ore.
In addition to announcing plans to hire up to 200 new employees, Country Coach earlier this month received local approval to expand on 74 acres adjacent to its current factory complex in Junction City that covers about 10 city blocks.
Country Coach already debuted its 2007 Intrigue 520, Magna 630, Affinity 700 Custom and Country Coach Prevost Conversion motorhomes in April at the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) convention in Pomona, Calif.
”The changes for 2007 in these coaches are in response to our customer surveys and are primarily feature based,” said Matt Howard, marketing and public relations director.
New amenities across the brands include multiplex electronic controls, SilverLeaf house monitors and stainless steel plumbing bays. Depending on the model, other new features include Aqua-Hot hydronic heating systems, strategically located side-swinging baggage doors, HWH universal flat-floor slide hardware and Wi-Fi signal boosters.
