The bold Viper Red paint scheme on the Sportscoach Elite matched with a red and black custom interior has become a big seller for Coachmen RV, Middlebury, Ind. “It is really hot for us, particularly after we designed the interior to match,” said Mike Scheetz, Sportscoach division vice president. The Elite, displayed at the Family Motor Coach Association’s (FMCA) 73rd International Convention, March 21-24, at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, Ga., features three 40-foot triple slideout floorplans and also is available in five schemes with more traditional colors and interiors. The Viper Red package features black ceramic tile, red window coverings, deep gray sculptured carpet and gray and black leather sofas. Built on a 32,000-pound GVWR Freightliner XC chassis standard with a 350-hp Caterpillar C7 diesel engine, the Sportscoach Elite features an aluminum superstructure and Owens-Corning C-Tech high-gloss fiberglass sidewalls, which eliminates the need for luan backing. The Elite retails from a base price of $215,000.
