Monaco RV LLC today (March 10) announced its partnership with California-based New Millenium Auto Group Inc, an exporter of vehicles internationally. New Millenium will be exporting the Monaco Montclair Class B-plus style motorhome to China, according to a news release.
The Montclair will be sold at Dite International Auto, headquartered in Dalian, China, with several dealerships throughout China.
This is New Millenium’s first foray into exporting RVs to China. According to Tomas Hu, purchasing manager, “After visiting several RV manufacturers, we chose Monaco to be our very first RV export due to the superior quality of their products. They do things differently and better than the others.”
“There has been an increased demand for RVs right now,” continued Hu. “The RV market in China is relatively untapped. By representing the Monaco brand exclusively, we hope to see the brand thrive in the newly open RV market of China.”
According to Mike Snell, senior vice president of sales and product development for Monaco RV, “Following our parent company Navistar’s vision of global growth, we are pursuing and developing our presence in international markets, as it is crucial to our long-term strategic growth plans. We are extremely pleased New Millenium chose Monaco, based on quality, as their RV of choice to market in China. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership in China and beyond.”
Dalian, formerly known as Dairen, is a city of 6 million in northeast China. According to Wikipedia, Dalian is a very popular destination among Chinese tourists and foreign visitors, especially from Japan, South Korea and Russia. Its mild climate and multiple beaches as well as its importance in the modern history of China make it an especially nice place to visit.
