The Travel Channel recently featured Marathon Coach #1210 on its hit show "Extreme RVs." Premiering on Monday, June 16, the show followed the custom coach from empty shell to delivery. The episode will continue to air through the season.
"One aspect that made coach #1210 special enough to draw the attention of a TV show was its incredible use of space," said Al Christianson, Vice President of Interior Design. "An active family with five young children, Dave and Misty Yonce needed specific features and a special floorplan to keep their whole family engaged and comfortable."
Marathon created Five bunks, each with its own private entertainment center; plus a two-person desk was designed into one of the bunk areas, with the lower bunk lifting out of the way. Also making incredible use of space is the master bedroom. In its down position, the master bedroom has a large bed with a settee at the foot and a rear bath and shower. With the Murphy bed in its lifted position, the bedroom is transformed into a roomy children's movie and gaming room with a 50-inch display. For added comfort, the settee bench, opposite the Murphy bed, extends with the touch of a button, becoming a couch for the kids to comfortably play video games or watch TV. Plus, with one electric and one manual sleeper sofa in the salon, the family can create sleeping arrangements for 11.
"We're grateful to Dave and Misty Yonce for their willingness to participate, their great ideas and their generosity in sharing their coach," said President and Owner of Marathon Coach Steve Schoellhorn. "They're a welcomed addition to the Marathon family."
Marathon Coach #1210 also features illuminated cracked glass surfaces, additional televisions, matching golf cart with storage bay and other innovations.
