Regency RV, announced Thursday that it will be rolling out its new Xalta and Xalta Class B motorhomes along with a prototype of its 2018 Ultra Brougham Class B+ motorhome to dealers and consumers at America’s largest RV show— the Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa Jan. 16 to 21. The newest Regency RV motorhomes will be just outside in the Suppliers Building, lakeside, in booth #235.
“This is first time we exhibited our new Xalta and Xalta series motorhomes to dealers and consumers on the East Coast,” says Regency RV National Sales Manager, Dymon Farrer, in a press release from the Fort Worth, Texas firm. “This is also the first time both dealers and consumers will get to view the prototype of our entry into the Class B+ coach, our new line of Ultra Brougham.”
Farrer says Regency is looking forward to showcasing the prototype of its new Ultra Brougham motorhome with its Florida dealer of record at the show, La Mesa RV. “The feedback we receive at Tampa, both from the public and from our friends at La Mesa RV, will help us improve the Ultra Brougham B + coach as we head into full production in the first quarter of this year.”
Regency is definitely attracting high-end buyers, said Jason Kimbrell, principal of La Mesa RV nationwide. “Regency is attracting the prestige buyer, which is the Airstream buyer,” he said. “We believe Regency is well positioned to compete in that space. This buyer wants a nicer unit with more custom features and is willing to pay a high premium to get a quality coach.”
Farrer says he can be reached by phone or text at 574-370-5323, or by e-mail, at email@example.com to arrange appointments to see the new 2018 Regency RV coaches at the Tampa show.
Regency RV achieved its Mercedes-Benz Master Up-fitter accreditation first in 2015 as it began development of its luxury Class B motorhomes. It still builds exclusively on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis in Fort Worth, Texas.
Farrer explained that the Regency RV products are not built on a conventional assembly line but rather one at a time. Regency RV and The Wayne Davis Auto Group are a select group of highly skilled craftsmen who have a 50-year reputation restoring classic American muscle cars and exotic automobiles for the most discriminating buyers worldwide. The history of the company also includes building thousands of Regency custom conversion vans and trucks.
