Spartan Specialty Vehicles, a business unit of Spartan Motors Inc., showcased their Class A motorhome chassis and shared valuable motorcoach maintenance tips during training seminars hosted during key July RV events, including the Newmar Kountry Klub 2015 International Rally in Lewisberg, W.V., and the Family Motor Coach Association’s (FMCA) 2015 Family Reunion in Madison, Wis.
“Preventative motorcoach maintenance is something we at Spartan can’t stress enough,” said Steve Guillaume, president of Spartan Specialty Vehicles. “Spartan is glad to have the opportunity to help shine a light on regularly scheduled maintenance tasks, many of which coach owners can perform themselves. Rallies like the FMCA Family Reunion and Kountry Klub give us an opportunity to inform owners of any coach and help to extend the useful life of their equipment to preserve their investment and get the peace of mind they deserve.”
The training sessions provided at both events were just a glimpse of the full-service Spartan Owners Academy, a week-long onsite driving, maintenance, and systems familiarization course hosted by Spartan multiple times throughout the year. There, owners of Entegra, Newmar and Foretravel motorhomes, and those interested in purchasing coaches on Spartan chassis, can camp at the Spartan facilities while they learn about their coach.
In addition to exhibiting Class A RV chassis at the shows, the Spartan parts and accessories team staffed its “Rally Trailer,” where motorcoach owners enjoyed interacting with factory representatives for answers to common maintenance questions, purchased RV parts and gear at discounted rates, and got to see precisely what makes a Spartan chassis unique.
“Coach manufacturers like Entegra and Newmar are sending their owners a clear message when they put their motorcoach bodies on a Spartan chassis. They’re saying, ‘You deserve the best—from the ground up—and we’re going to deliver.’ Spartan is happy to be a big part of that value equation, on eight models in the market today, and counting,” said Mike Butler, National Sales Manager, Spartan Specialty Vehicles.
