Universal Luxury Coaches LLC, a Sanford, Fla.-based luxury motorcoach rental firm, has purchased “a fleet” of Vantare- and Vogue-brand motorhomes, according to Featherlite Inc.
“We are putting together a stunning fleet of new and pre-owned Featherlite Luxury Coaches that will be available for rent through ULC (Universal Luxury Coaches) at any of Featherlite’s four U.S. (motorcoach sales) locations,” said James Wooley, president and COO of the Featherlite Luxury Coach Division.
“We are very excited about ULC’s new service,” Wooley continued. “It will provide customers the ultimate in leisure travel and entertainment tailored to their specific requirements without the long-term commitment of ownership.”
The number of units Featherlite sold to ULC was not revealed.
Featherlite converts Prevost bus shells into Vantare-brand luxury motorcoaches and sells them from four company-owned locations: Sanford, Fla.; Cresco, Iowa, Mocksville, N.C., and Coburg, Ore.
The company has 17 new Vantare units in its inventory as of today (May 16), according to Featherlite’s website.
Featherlite discontinued production of its Vogue-brand of standard highline Class A motorhomes in August 2001 when it closed its Vogue production plant in Oklahoma. The company has a few pre-owned Vogue units now in its inventory, according to the Featherlite website.
The purchase of the units from Featherlite represents the launching of ULC’s Affinity Rental Program to offer luxury motorcoaches “for personal, corporate or executive rental.”
