Foretravel Motorhomes Inc., which recently entered the high-end horse trailer conversion industry, has added world champion barrel racer Charmayne James to its growing list of western celebrity endorsements.
James is the 11-time Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) Barrel-Racing World Champion, holds the title of All Time Leading Money Earner in the WPRA and has competed at the most consecutive National Finals Rodeos than any other barrel-racer.
She developed her skills as a young horse trainer by training her future champion “Scamper” to barrel-race and went on to turn pro at the age of 14. James and Scamper continued to amaze the rodeo world with a string of wins and championships no cowgirl has yet to surpass. She and Scamper even won their 1985 NFR event bridle-less (by accident.) Later they both were inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and National Cowgirl Hall of Fame respectively.
She joins a list of celebrities affiliated with the Nacogdoches, Texas-based manufacturer that includes six-time All Around Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) World Champion Cowboy Trevor Brazile, PRCA World Champion Team Roper Patrick Smith and PRCA rodeo announcer Mike Mathis.
Foretravel sees this addition as a major achievement toward its future success in the conversion industry to help achieve its goals in this highly competitive and expanding marketplace.
“When it comes to craftsmanship, service and expertise, Foretravel conversions will reshape the horse trailer industry,” said James. “The quality and attention to detail that goes into each motorcoach and living quarters trailer conversion will provide a new level that the trailer industry has not seen. After getting to know the folks at Foretravel and their operation, I’m happy to be involved with their products.”
According to Greg Amys, Foretravel president, “We recognize Charmayne’s accomplishments and influence with women across the spectrum of the horse world. She brings with her the love and respect from a lifetime of success and honesty toward her fans and her horses. She actually cares more for her horse’s well-being than for her own and many women share that quality with her.”
Foretravel Motorhomes Inc., Nacogdoches, Texas, announced it has entered into a partnership with National Ropers Supply (NRS) to offer Foretravel conversions to its expanding customer base.
NRS was launched in 1994 selling ropes, saddles, tack, clothing and home accessories to the western market. It recently entered the horse trailer business through a merger with Mike and Shary Henderson of Bonded Trailers Sales from Denton, Texas. The resulting partnership is called NRS Trailers.
NRS is the official catalog for the United States Team Roping Championship, World Barrel Racing Productions, World Team Roping Productions and Texas High School Rodeo Association.
According to Greg Amys, Foretravel president and CEO, “NRS offers a unique opportunity to expand our 40-plus years of quality craftsmanship and fit & finish to the broad customer base of NRS. This new relationship creates a synergy that enables us to offer one of the newest and most exciting products to come along in the living quarters conversion market. With the help of NRS, we’re confident this will be a very successful business relationship.”
According to NRS founder and CEO, David Isham, “Foretravel is going to be the next big thing in the horse trailer industry. We see their success in the motorcoach industry and are excited to offer this quality to our customers.”
