MILWAUKEE - The REV Recreation Group has debuted the all-new Renegade Valencia “Super C” motorcoach at the FMCA convention and expo in Chandler, Arizona held March 7-10.
“This is a high-end product that falls at a price point that offers consumers a real value," Renegade RV General Manager Mike Lanciotti says. "We have been looking forward to this debut for months. Our team has been dedicated to designing a motorcoach that our customers would be proud to own.
"We believe the Valencia will turn heads and will usher in a new era of luxury motorcoaches in the market,” Renegade Director of Sales and Marketing Kevin Erdman says. "The Valencia is a family friendly coach launching in the market at a competitive price. The new 'Super C' model has all of the features that Renegade owners have grown to expect – high quality construction, high-end features like solid-cherry cabinets, high towing capacity, large fuel capacity, air-ride seating for driver and passenger, adult size bunks and more.”
The Valencia is built on the first Super-C chassis designed specifically for the RV industry, the S2RV chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation.
Valencia customers will enjoy features like stainless steel appliances, fully lined exterior storage boxes, 3 inches of sound and thermal deadening insulation, 10-gallon diesel exhaust fluid tank, 100-gallon fuel tank and an impressive 12,000 pound towing capacity. A Cummins ISB 360HP engine powers the Valencia down the highway with 800 pounds per foot of torque to go where the customers desire. The Valencia is offered in two floor plans at launch, the 38BB and the 38VRW. The 38BB offers a spacious living area and large bunk beds, while the 38VRW offers a large living area up front with a spacious master suite at the rear of the coach.
“We saw the need for a high-end 'Super C' motor coach that offered all the amenities and features for which Renegade has been known,” REV Group President Jim Jacobs says. "This is a high-end product that falls at a price point that offers consumers a real value."
The Renegade Valencia debuted at the Rawhide Western Town and Event Center in Chandler, Arizona, for FMCA’s 95th International Convention and RV Expo. Attendees enjoyed the debut of the new Valencia as well as the full line of Renegade RV products, according to a press release.
