Freightliner Custom Chassis Gets North America Moving with Free Fuel Special RV travel deal designed to help spark sales

GAFFNEY, S.C. - This season, forget the "staycation." Take a road trip of a lifetime on Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC).

Motorhome enthusiasts who have waited out the bumpy road of a rough economy to buy a new rig now have 1,250 reasons to start planning their next road trip immediately in a new RV. Called "Fueled By Us," FCCC is offering a $1,250 USD fuel card with the purchase of any qualifying new motorhome built on a Freightliner chassis from dealers in the United States and Canada. The Fueled By Us offer is available from Oct. 15 - Dec. 31, 2009.

"Even in a tough economy, the freedom and adventure of the open road is an irresistible draw," said Jonathan Randall, director of sales and marketing for FCCC. "The dream of a great road trip is the passion of many RVers and this sales event is designed to help them take a trip they might normally not be in the position to take at this time."

RV travel has long been known as a great way to maximize travel budgets. With room for the entire family, no airline restrictions or fees to deal with, the ability to cook meals and avoid costly hotel charges, motorhome travel offers many advantages. With Freightliner Custom Chassis' latest offer of free fuel, the value is that much stronger.

"We know travelers are anxious to get out there and explore, but they want to be sure they are getting the most for their dollar. Our offer to take your next RV trip on us is a strong added incentive when considering the purchase of a new motorhome," said Randall. "Not to mention Freightliner chassis offer best-in-class ride and handling, the tightest turning radius in the industry, the most expansive dealer and service network and outstanding customer service 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

Freightliner chassis power some of the most popular and well-built Class A motorhomes available in the industry. The following OEMs are participating in the Fueled By Us program: Damon, Entegra Coach, Forest River, Gulf Stream, Itasca, Jayco, Four Winds International (formerly known as Mandalay Coach), Newmar, Sportscoach, Tiffin, Triple E and Winnebago. FCCC's Fueled By Us offer applies to new 2008, 2009 and 2010 model-year retail-sold motorhomes built by the aforementioned participating OEMs on FCCC chassis. FCCC manufactures diesel powered chassis and even offers the first-of-its-kind hybrid-electric version called ecoFRED, designed to increase fuel economy while delivering optimal power.
