Travel Supreme Inc., Wakarusa, Ind., modified the Travel Supreme ME mid-engine Class A motorhome for 2006 by shortening the cargo deck 24 inches to accommodate lengthening the wheel base by the same amount. Adding two feet to the wheel base helps with the handling of the coach, the company said. The 10-foot deck, which will still carry an Austin Mini Cooper automobile as originally designed, is now built more as a motorcycle carrier, according to the company. Available to consumers for the first time at the Family Motor Coach Association’s (FMCA) 73rd International Convention, March 21-24, at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, Ga, the 41-foot Travel Supreme ME is built on a Spartan Mountainmaster ME2 chassis powered by a standard 400-hp Cummins ISL diesel engine. Retailing for a base price of $324,639, the Travel Supreme ME features an aluminum superstructure with automotive high-gloss gelcoat fiberglass sidewalls, full body paint, independent front suspension, padded vinyl ceilings, oak hardwood cabinets, Flexsteel furniture, Corian countertops and ceramic tile floors.
