About Marathon Coach
Marathon Coach, Inc. began operations in September 1983 converting new commercial bus shells into luxury recreational vehicles and corporate coaches. Since 1989, Marathon has built their custom-crafted conversions primarily on Prevost bus shells, becoming the Volvo subsidiary's largest bus converter.
In 1990, Bob Schoellhorn purchased his first Marathon coach and invested in the company after retiring from 17 years of service (including more than 10 years as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board) at Abbott Laboratories, a major pharmaceutical company. He became sole proprietor of Marathon Coach in 1994, using his worldwide business expertise and investment to accelerate Marathon's expansion by many years. Marathon moved into its custom-built Coburg, Oregon plant, and opened its Marathon Coach Florida sales and service complex in San Antonio, near Tampa, that same year. The Marathon Coach Texas sales and service complex opened in Grand Prairie, near Dallas, in 2002.
Marathon Coach, Inc. produces the world's most sought after bus conversions. Built on Prevost H3-45 and XLII chassis, Marathon coaches are designed to provide the amenities of a luxury home combined with the ultimate freedom of the RV lifestyle. The innovative features of the custom coaches developed by Marathon's engineers, craftspeople and designers enhance the conversion experience. Marathon's advanced technologies and patented systems maintain the company's position at the forefront of the recreational vehicle and corporate coach industry.
New coaches range in price from $1.5 to $2 million; pre-owned coaches begin at $200,000. Marathon's pre-owned coaches are completely refurbished and certified with a limited, six-month warranty.
