Renegade/Kibbi Picks MCD Innovation Shade
Renegade/Kibbi LLC, manufacturer of the IKON motorcoach, has selected MCD Innovations’ American Duo shade system for installation in its custom motorcoaches.
“Our requirements for a shade that provided comfort, privacy, and ease of operation have been exceeded with the MCD shades,” said Kibbi’s Danny Lagunas in a news release. “Our customers can choose power-operated or manual-operated shades and get the same look and the installation is production friendly. The staff at MCD works with us on our custom requirements and the support after the sale satisfies our most discriminating owner.”
“We are pleased to be able to offer the revolutionary MCD Shade System in the Renegade line-up. Renegade’s discerning customers will immediately benefit from this easy-to-use, leading-edge technology,” noted Dave Townsley, CEO of McKinney, Texas-based MCD Innovations.
The MCD American Duo proprietary ClearView solar shade fabric dramatically reduces the amount of UV rays and heat that enter a coach, while providing daytime privacy and outward visibility. The MCD night shade fabrics provide 100% light-blockage and room-darkening capability.
Bristol, Ind.-based Renegade/Kibbi started in 1997 when Chuck McKibbin and his crew were banned from showing their unit at the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) national convention because they were not members. So they displayed their RV in the parking lot and called themselves the “renegades.”
Now, 13 years later, Renegade/Kibbi LLC has grown to 105 employees, and has eclipsed production milestones with the 2,500th motorhome and the 1,800th trailer rolling off the assembly line. The company manufactures unique upscale motorhomes, sportdecks, garage units, specialty vehicles and trailers.
