Monaco RV LLC hosted more than 85 coaches — representing all Monaco makes ands models — for the Coburg, Ore.-based manufacturer’s inaugural “Alabama Getaway” rally, Oct. 6-10 in Prattville, Ala., in conjunction with the Navistar LPGA Classic Presented by Monaco RV.
According to Mike Snell, senior vice president of sales and product development, the event — which also included a few non-Monaco RV brands — was a tremendous success.
“The city of Prattville was a first-class host,” said Snell. “This event showcased the best and brightest in women’s professional golf and they really put on a show for us.”
Rally attendees received free tournament tickets to enjoy the LPGA event, along with five nights dry-camping, food and drinks on select nights, games, activities and entertainment — all free of charge. Some of the LPGA tour pros were also accessible during the event to meet and answer questions.
Monaco RV teamed up with dealer partner Alliance Coach, Wildwood, Fla., to bring a number of units to display at the rally, including Monaco and Holiday Rambler motorized products and Holiday Rambler towable units.
“We were thrilled to have Alliance Coach be a part of this event with us and we appreciated all their efforts,” said Snell.
Navistar has committed to hosting the LPGA event for the next two years and Monaco RV executives said the company will stage a rally at the 2011 program, as well. “We were extremely encouraged and excited about the turnout for the tournament and rally,” Snell said, “and we can’t wait to do it again next year.”
