Dean Loucks Will Design Liberty Coach Exteriors
Frank Konigseder, vice president of Liberty Coach, announced the introduction of its uniquely designed and proprietary exterior paint finishes for all new coaches beginning with its 2013 models.
Introduced this past weekend at the Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa, Konigseder noted, “People were blown away and couldn’t believe what they were seeing. Customers and even paint shop owners were coming over to our booth and were amazed by the technology we are using.”
Konigseder decided to work with well-known automotive and marine industry paint specialist Dean Loucks of The Art of Design, based in Elkhart, Ind., to design something “out-of-the-box” for Liberty’s newly manufactured coaches. After working with Dean for over 20 years on specialty coaches that have included an adobe Aztec village for Country Western musician Randy Travis, a baseball themed design for J.W. Henry, a past owner of the Florida Marlins, and a Napa Valley inspired vineyard theme for Brassfield Estate Winery, Konigseder was ready to introduce something unlike the traditional Prevost designs of the past to his customers.
Last summer Konigseder approached Loucks to discuss his interest in doing more uniquely themed exterior designs. Loucks will now be doing the company’s entire production starting with the 2013 Verona Edition which is currently on the floor at the Liberty Coach showroom in Stuart, Fla.
