Monaco RV, LLC was thrilled with the turnout at its inaugural “New Frontier” Rally, held Oct. 26 to 30 in Tucson, Ariz.
More than 500 motorhomes gathered for the event, which featured golf, nightly entertainment and informative seminars. At one seminar, an executive council from Monaco RV met with more than 800 Monaco motorhome owners to discuss the future of Monaco RV and the RV industry.
Every make and model currently produced by Monaco RV was represented at the new Frontier Rally.
“I cannot begin to express how great it was to see so many of our dear friends here in Tucson,” said Kay Toolson, president of Monaco RV. “It has been a long, difficult road this year and to see everyone enjoying the RV lifestyle in their motorhomes brought smiles to all of our faces. We were overwhelmed by the turnout here in Tucson, but we were especially touched by the support and encouragement we received.”
Mike Snell, senior vice president of sales and product development, was pleased by the amount of interest and sales generated at the show. “Four of our superior dealer partners were present representing our brands, and they did a tremendous job working with customers to help them purchase new units,” Snell said.
It’s important for Monaco executives to listen to the ideas and suggestions of Monaco coach owners, Snell said. “There is no substitute for their knowledge, experience and imagination when it comes to helping us create products that truly get RVers excited ….”
FMCA member Laura Wyatt, who attended the rally with her husband, Don, enjoyed the rally. “Everything from the facilities to the parking to the new coach display was beyond our expectation. We had a great time visiting with old friends and meeting many new ones, from all brands.”
Monaco RV is already in the early planning stages for its next rally, expected to take place some time next year. Organizers anticipate a location further east to accommodate those who could not attend the Tucson rally.
