Since my parents started the company in 1968, our goal has always been the same, which is to build the finest motorcoach in the world.”
North Chicago, IL and Stuart, FL (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
After Liberty Coach managed to sell every one of its 2014 coaches during the 2013 calendar year, many wondered what the longtime luxury motorcoach leader would do for an encore.
The answer came last week, when the company announced final 2014 sales of an astounding 109 Prevost motorcoaches – or a little better than 2 per week.
The total shattered Liberty’s previous annual record of 98 units, which was set in 2006, and continues a long string of dominant sales years for the oldest and most successful company in the field.
It also reflects the firm’s growing leadership in pre-owned coach sales, which was bolstered by a breakthrough year from The Motorhome Exchange, Liberty’s wholly-owned subsidiary that specializes in pre-owned Prevost coaches and elite Class A motorhomes.
The Exchange, which shares its Stuart, Florida location with Liberty Coach of Florida, accounted for over half of the total pre-owned sales, including 49 Prevost coaches built by third-party non-Liberty conversion companies. Equally important, the subsidiary was (and continues to be) exceptionally successful at attracting private coach sellers with its top dollar prices and unrivaled dealership services. As a result, the Florida dealership has been able to maintain the nation’s top inventory of pre-owned Prevost coaches, in terms of both quantity and quality.
Of course, the biggest reason for Liberty Coach’s ongoing success is the coach itself. “Since my parents started the company in 1968, our goal has always been the same,” says managing partner Frank Konigseder Jr., “which is to build the finest motorcoach in the world.”
Few would argue that a Liberty Coach is anything less.
Thanks to Frank’s engineering and the extraordinary floorplans developed by his brother and co-managing partner Kurt Konigseder, today’s “Elegant Lady” designs boast more living and storage space and more advanced onboard systems and electronics – yet are significantly lighter and more roadworthy – than any other Prevost coach on the market. And each coach is finished and furnished to 5-star perfection under the direction of Kurt’s wife and longtime Liberty Interior Designer Kim Konigseder.
The coaches are also long on innovations, as you might expect. Among the many “industry-firsts” Liberty introduced in its 2015 model year: the state-of-the-art STRUT Launchport iPad charging system; the first-ever remote monitoring link for lithium-ion battery systems; and a newly configured lower bay entertainment center featuring an enormous 65-inch UHD TV set, by far the largest lower bay screen ever installed.
All of which leaves Liberty Coach in prime position for another great year in 2015. As of this writing, a pair of new 2015 Elegant Lady models remain available: the Verona Edition with Bedroom Superslide (Stock No. 780), and the double-slide Fairfax Edition (Stock No. 785). What’s more, a total of 16 pre-owned Prevost coaches, including 10 Liberty models, are listed for sale on the Liberty Coach and Motorhome Exchange websites. And the eagerly awaited debut of the 2016 model year designs is just weeks away. In short, 2014 may be a tough act to follow. But all things considered, Liberty Coach appears more than up to the task.
