Prevost bus converter Marathon Coach recently completed production on its 900th coach representing an “industry record,” according to the Coburg, Ore.-based company.
“Marathon is very proud to premiere its 900th coach,” Executive Vice President Steve Schoellhorn stated in a press release. “It is a great achievement in the industry, representing a record in number of bus conversions built.
“We would like to thank our customers and employees for their continued support over the years. We look forward to building our 1000th coach in the near future, which will be sometime in 2005.”
The 45-foot Le Mirage is equipped with two slides, plush granite and leather interior and sophisticated electronics, including an in-motion satellite system and the Onstar road assistance system.
The coach also has four televisions, one featuring a 42-inch plasma drop-down screen from the ceiling. A menu-driven, touch-screen system controls all the TVs, lights and the sound system from anywhere in the coach.
