The Wayne Davis Auto Group LLC announced the launch of its 2017 Regency RV lineup of Concept One Class B motorhomes built on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis.
According to a press release, the company expanded in 2016 from Regency Conversions, an upfitter of lifted, off-road pickups and SUVs, with its new Regency RV division building “ultra-luxury” Class B motorcoaches.
After acquiring the Mercedes Benz master up-fitter certification in early 2016, Regency RV went into production for the Concept One motorcoach from its newly retooled Fort Worth, Texas, production facilities. With the 2017 Concept One rollout, the company is now in full production of the B-van line.
Owner and CEO Wayne Davis, President Alan Osicka and Vice President of Sales Nick Carter bring over 100 years of automotive industry expertise to the new venture, including managing Regency Van Conversions which grew from 175 units monthly in 1995 to 800 units per month by 2001. In 2006, Davis sold the van conversion firm.
“What separates us from most Class B builders in the industry today is that we are not interested in doing high-production runs,” said Carter. “Our new coaches are all handmade. We craft everything in-house. At this point in our careers we’re more focused on quality, not quantity.
Osicka, who also heads up the manufacturing and operations for the firm, noted, “We’re ahead of the competition from the start with a high-end chassis from Mercedes already equipped with factory navigation, backup camera systems and other enhanced features.”
He added, “The reception of the new Regency Concept One went better than we expected in 2016. Dealers and consumers are looking for quality and those who will stand behind their products. We hope to add many dealers to support our following in 2017.”
