Marathon #1261

This was Marathon’s first 2018 coach built on the Prevost X3-45 chassis. A very classic look.

We have been looking at a 2007 coach built on the XL II chassis. Not seriously mind you. But looking at one just the same. Hard to tell that the coaches are a decade apart. Some minor differences on the front and rear caps and around the tag but otherwise remarkably similar.

The Marathon #1261 features the following floorplan:

Here is the video tour of the Marathon #1261:

The Marathon #1261 was offered at $2.1 million USD.

The 2007 built on the XL II chassis? Well, somewhere around the $500k USD range.

These coaches are engineered for a long service duty. Not sure that it is much of a compromise to buy a used one. Even if it is ten or eleven years old.

Prevost Motorhome Expo

My friends at Hearthside Grove sent me a nice invitation:

Hi Richard,

As 2017 begins, we are kicking off our schedule of events happening in and around several locations in Florida. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to catch up with you over the next few months.

Stop by the booth at the upcoming shows and ask about the new lots we are constructing and the new finished 1100 sq. ft. bungalow and garage currently being built.

The first two stops are next week.

January 16-17 – Prevost Motorhome Expo – Tampa Convention Center

January 18-22 – Florida RV Supershow – Supplier Building B – Booth # B123

Unfortunately I won’t be in Florida this week but a friend of mine might be there. If you are reading this post, I hope you dropped in on the Prevost Motorhome Expo. They should have had a lot of Prevost coaches on display. The tentative list of coaches can be found here.

When we dropped by Hearthside Grove last year, there were dozens of Prevosts around the resort. Hadn’t seen so many of them in one place before.

The Marathon coach, pictured above, is always a crowd favourite. It lists for around $2.5 million USD which is well over $3 million for Canadians. Now that is a really, really expensive motorhome.
