Marathon Coach is the first in the industry to feature Prevost’s new X3 chassis.
Debuting at the Prevost Motorhome Expo in West Palm Beach, Florida, in February, Marathon Coach #1317 was well received. The 8-10% boost in fuel efficiency, the increased structure rigidity and safety, the more spacious feel of the coach interior because of the updated side windows and a finished ceiling 3 inches higher than before, created quite the buzz factor. Some other updates on the new Prevost X3 chassis include a newly-designed grill, more aerodynamic body, new front door panel, improved driver’s view and extra cosmetic stainless on the front cap.
The Marathon engineering team pushed the recent Prevost innovations further throughout Marathon Show Coach #1317. By opening up the salon and galley areas even more, they enhanced the contemporary, open feel, also allowing wider window views. A mid-ship art door hides the guest half bath, extending the look of the salon and galley while enhancing the decor. The redesigned rear closet area provides more storage and hanging space, while also featuring a table top for folding laundry or organizing belongings. The wardrobe’s three-panel exposed pocket door glides open to the standard 24 inches, but can also hinge to increase the opening to 36 inches, making laundry and stored items easily accessible. Built on the bath-and-a-half floorplan with rear walk-in wardrobe, Marathon Show Coach #1317 features a 360° camera system, slide room roof camera system, fireplace in the salon end table, multiple 55-inch televisions, rainfall shower, standard king bed and Marathon’s patented TechLink and Freedom Plus systems.
Upcoming Marathons built on the new X3 chassis include Show Coaches #1324, #1325 and #1330 and Custom Coach #1331.
