    WAKARUSA, Ind.. — Prime Time Manufacturing, a division of Forest River, continues to post impressive retail growth rates as the young company begins its fifth year building towable recreational vehicles, the firm reported today.

    Final 2013 numbers from Statistical Surveys show that Prime Time’s travel trailer brands increased total retail sales by 47 percent and Prime Time’s fifth wheel brands increased total retail sales by 62 percent.  With a combined market share increase exceeding 30 percent for 2013, Prime Time is one of the fastest growing retail manufacturers in North America, the release noted.

    According to National Sales Manager Ken Walters, the consistent sales growth is a function of a unique business model, great dealers, and impressive product.

    “Our business model continues to be a very dealer-centric and retail driven model,” said Walters. “We put our dealers first and offer products that are a smart investment for them. They’ve felt great about increasing the amount of Prime Time products on their lots over the years and customers have chosen to buy that product over a myriad of other options. We couldn’t ask for a better lineup of dealer partners.”

    Prime Time President Jeff Rank said he is pleased with the consistent growth the company has experienced.

    “We are no longer a new start-up company where it’s easy to show huge year-over-year increases,” said Rank. “Prime Time is well established in the Top 10 of our industry yet we still continue to grow significantly faster than our peers. It is truly a testament to treating your dealers well and developing great product with great quality.”

    Prime Time Manufacturing is a division of Forest River, Inc, a Berkshire Hathaway company.  Prime Time offers towable recreation vehicles under the brand names of Avenger, Crusader, LaCrosse, Sanibel, Spartan, and Tracer and is located in Wakarusa, Ind.

    LAS VEGAS, Nev., -- Meridian Specialty Vehicles, Inc., a Las Vegas, Nevada based Mercedes Benz-approved bus manufacturer will be unveiling its new Sprinter-based "Tourismo" mid-sized luxury motorcoach bus product line next week simultaneously at both the United Motorcoach Association (UMA) Expo in Los Angeles, CA and the International Limousine, Charter and Tour (LCT) Show in Las Vegas, NV.

    The high-end Tourismo is Meridian's newest in a growing number of product offerings on the popular and eco-friendly Mercedes-Benz Sprinter platform, designed specifically for tour, charter and limousine operators.

    The Tourismo's standard 6-foot interior ceiling height, 24-foot overall length, multiple high-end European-style reclining seating configurations including bench, booth or forward-facing arrangements, individual overhead air controls and reading lights, PA system, LED mood and cabin lighting, wood grain commercial flooring, video system, over-sized ducted air conditioning and heating, integrated backup camera, skylights and more, truly redefines luxury travel in a mid-sized platform.

    Available options normally reserved exclusively for the Tourismo's behemoth brothers and sisters include mobile Wi-Fi, fire suppression system, infotainment solutions, 110 Volt/USB passenger power outlets, privacy curtains, tire pressure monitoring, even fully-equipped lavatories. In all, over 100 options are available to customize every bus for each operator's individual tastes and requirements for comfort and safety.

    "With best-in-class 11,030-pound GVWR, incredibly smooth, quiet and comfortable ride quality and ultra-efficient and notoriously long-lasting diesel engines, the Mercedes Benz Sprinter was our immediate platform choice for the Tourismo mid-size tour bus to answer to our charter clients' ongoing demand for a sub-20 passenger luxury touring coach", said David Ronsen, President and CEO of Meridian Specialty Vehicles, Inc., "Tour guests have become accustomed to high-end accommodations and tour operators are expected to provide luxurious buses, regardless of group size. Until now, operators have had few options other than to operate 40-, 50- or even 60-passenger coaches for a fifteen passenger group. When calculating associated fuel and maintenance costs, that practice simply doesn't add up. The Tourismo solves the problem with a very cost-effective, fully-equipped mini tour bus that achieves an astounding 300+ passenger miles per gallon. Operators will love the best-in-class amenities, including our exclusive luggage bay door and storage system and their passengers will love the privacy and panoramic views provided by the Sprinter's ample, narrow-framed windows and Meridian's exclusive glass plug door."

    The Tourismo will be on display at Meridian's booth at UMA (booth # 1425) and at Creative Bus Sales' booth at LCT (both #94).
