The Workhorse Custom Chassis ambassador program has expanded to three representatives with the addition of two motorhome owners.
According to a press release, ambassadors share “helpful information” with RVers while traveling the country attending rallies and staying in campgrounds.
“We pride ourselves on being the RVer’s advocate,” said Bob Wert, vice president of RV sales and marketing for the Union City, Ind.-based chassis builder. “We’re vitally interested in what RVers want. The ambassador program is one important way in which we listen to them and then provide products that really meet their needs.”
Mike Pelchat of Conway, S.C., has served as the Workhorse chief ambassador for the past year. Pelchat is a retired career firefighter from Connecticut who has been full-timing with his wife Colleen since early 2005.
Workhorse said he has attended numerous regional Good Sam Club, FMCA and WIT (Winnebago/Itasca) Club rallies, iRV2.com national rallies and other events across the country.
New ambassadors include Ed Gray and his wife Suzanne from Belle Chase, La., and Mike Tylenda and his wife Maureen from Southwick, Mass. Gray is a retired vice president and founding partner of Allied Vista Inc. and Tylenda is a retired communications technician for AT&T.
“What’s great about the ambassador program is that it’s one RVer talking to another,” said Pelchat. “For example, when I give a rally seminar about some aspect of RVing, whether it’s towing or the electrical system, people know they’re getting real world answers to real world challenges.”
