Diesel pusher Class A motorcoach manufacturer Foretravel Motorhomes Inc., Nacogdoches, Tex., has named Featherlite Luxury Coaches its exclusive dealer for the state of Florida, the companies announced today (Dec. 3).
Featherlite, primarily a manufacturer of specialty aluminum trailers which also produces the Vantare line of bus conversion motorhomes, will retail the full line Foretravel models from its Vantare service center in Sanford, Fla.
Featherlite also will offer warranty, parts and service work to Foretravel customers at the Sanford location.
Foretravel builds diesel engine Class A motorhomes that retail for $350,000 and $600,000 and it currently is transitioning from selling its models through company-owned retail locations to a network of independent dealers.
As the relationship progresses, Foretravel motorhomes may become available at Featherlite’s other motorcoach sales and service centers in Cresco, Iowa, Coburg, Ore., and Mocksville, N.C.
Featherlite competed with Foretravel during the years when Featherlite built the Vogue series of highline fiberglass body Class A’s. However, Featherlite discontinued Vogue production when it closed its Oklahoma production plant during 2001.
