Marathon introduces quad slides
« on: October 11, 2008, 09:17:47 AM »
When we visited the Marathon Prevost bus conversion factory in Coburg, OR and toured various models, one of Chris' complaints was the lack of slideouts in the living area. MSRP was $1.6M, so I breathed a huge sigh of relief when Chris complained. But I snapped this shot for the archives before walking across the street to the Monaco factory.

A couple of days ago I received an email from Marathon introducing their new quad slide SL-II coach. Attached to the email were a spec sheet and photos, but I'll ask if it's OK to post them. I didn't ask the price, but thought I might ask folks here to take up a collection  ???

We have 15,000 members @ $100/each and you've got a new Marathon.  We can take turns using it :)

Tom, if you hurry and get a mortgage on that beauty and then default soon afterward, maybe the goverment's Rescue Package will bail you out.  That would work wouldn't it?

Take it out for a test drive and then toss the salesman out the door and keep going. With all the Class As on the highway it would take them weeks to find you.

Rolf,  I like your idea:

Tim and I were just saying that we should have gotten a mortgage on our new house instead of paying cash.  We could have cashed in on all this "bail-out...Rescue package" stuff going on.  Revaluating the house at a reduced market rate would have saved us some $$$.  I'm kidding...just kidding.

Seilerbird,

That thing probably has a GPS locator chip buried deep in it somewhere.   ;D
