Freightliner Offers Discounts On Classes, Parts

January 20, 2010 by · Comments Off on Freightliner Offers Discounts On Classes, Parts 

Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) announced yesterday (Jan. 19) limited-duration discounts on both its Camp Freightliner training course and parts, sales and service labor for any motorhome riding on a FCCC chassis.

The Gaffney, S.C.-based chassis manufacturer will waive the $50 co-pilot fee for Camp Freightliner classes scheduled for the month of February, while a 10% discount on parts and service will run through February 26 for sales at its Factory Service Center in Gaffney. For current Freightliner Chassis Owners Club (FCOC) members, this 10% discount is in addition to the 5% discount already received at the Factory Service Center.

Camp Freightliner is a comprehensive two-day training course where motorhome operators are educated about the benefits of and maintenance of their specific FCCC chassis, reviewing such topics such as the air brake and electrical system, maintenance intervals, weight distribution and vehicle storage. In addition, pilots and co-pilots have the opportunity to learn the intricacies of a Freightliner chassis firsthand, examining a
bare chassis to highlight and review its features. The classes eligible for the co-pilot discount are scheduled for Feb. 15-16 and Feb. 18-19.

Held at the company’s Factory Service Center in Gaffney, Camp Freightliner is now open to anyone interested in learning more about motorhoming, not just current FCCC owners.

“We recently opened Camp Freightliner to anyone who might be interested in moving from a towable or fifth-wheel to a Class A motorhome, or for people who just want to learn more about owning a motorhome, so we could educate them about chassis maintenance and give them an understanding what goes into owning and operating a Class A RV,” said Dave Hoover, customer support manager at FCCC.

Customers who visit the FCCC Factory Service Center are also encouraged to visit the manufacturing facility while in Gaffney.  The chassis production center is located just down the road from the Factory Service Center, with tours of the facility given to interested parties in the mornings Monday through Friday.
