A Note from Prevost - Marathon Coach

A Note from Prevost

For 95 years Prevost has been a leader in design, comfort and luxury in the motorcoach industry. When you think of luxury, you think of Prevost. Our success as a company is a result of several factors, but when you look at the foundation of what makes us successful, you find very humble beginnings. Beginnings that are familiar and should resonate with you: family, travel and comfort. Our founder, Eugene Prevost, fulfilled a need to transport people from rural snowy Canada to bigger towns and cities for economic development and relationships. Almost a century later those same principles are relevant to us today: family, travel and comfort.

When you purchase a Prevost coach, no matter what season of life you are in, you are inducted into the Prevost family. It’s true; we really feel passionate about making the ownership process something unique and genuine that is unmatched in the industry. If you ever get a chance to come to our factory in Sainte-Claire, Québec, you will see the pride and passion in our employees’ eyes; they live, eat and breathe Prevost. Our Sales and Service teams are by far the best in the industry, connecting with you and going the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of, like family does for one another. We’ve got your back, mile after mile, wherever the road takes you because we know that traveling is also your passion.

Since I joined Prevost almost four years ago, I’ve had the pleasure of working directly with Steve Schoellhorn. During our times together, I was truly happy to discover that he shares the same philosophy as Prevost. A philosophy based on delivering a product of true craftsmanship while also ensuring the ultimate ownership experience to his customers, which means being there for them, no matter what. Like his father before him, he carries on the legacy of the Marathon brand, built on a solid foundation of great product, pride and passion.

Your Prevost coach is more than just a motorcoach, it is a way to see the world, connect with friends and family, and spend the best years of your life enjoying a fulfilling and rewarding passion. The amount of freedom a Prevost motorcoach gives you to travel is something we are passionate about. We hear story after story of once-in-a-lifetime experiences with your motorcoach and it invigorates us to continue to provide the ultimate experience in luxury travel living. Eugene Prevost had a commitment to improving people’s living conditions, and that foundation still runs through our company today and continues to be a driving pulse of our work.

We feel very fortunate to partner alongside Marathon as our largest volume luxury converter. For more than 30 years we have worked side-by-side to provide the ultimate motorcoach, which becomes a symbol for everything both our companies stand for. It has been our privilege to see the growth and expansion of Marathon and we continue to see some of the most beautiful coaches hit the road with pride.

Eugene Prevost’s standard of excellence and commitment to improving people’s living conditions has been the foundation of Prevost’s success over the last 95 years and can still be felt by anyone who has had the privilege of riding in or driving one of these works of art. Prevost’s industry-leading quality and service provides unmatched comfort for those who call the road home and has truly had an immeasurable impact on the touring community. As Prevost celebrated our 95th anniversary, 2019 served as both a year of reflection and growth. With new and exciting advancements always on the horizon, Prevost is poised to continue our history of innovation and ingenuity as we approach the century mark. We are thrilled to have Marathon and YOU as part of this journey and we look forward to many more successful years ahead.

Over this past summer holiday my family and I completed a 1,500-mile trip in a Prevost motorcoach, a journey that started in Montana and finished in South Dakota … and what an experience it was! From experiencing that “home away from home” feeling, to meeting passionate and proud Prevost motorcoach owners on the road, it was an experience that made me truly appreciate why people fall in love with the motorcoach lifestyle. And I have to tell you, what a head turner a Prevost motorcoach is; we had so many people approach us wanting to know more about the motorcoach and the brand. I am proud to work for such a great company and have the pleasure to work with a fantastic partner like Marathon.
