Featured OEM Customer
Coachmen RV, whose RV products have been on US roads and highways since 1964, has recently selected the MCD American Duo™ Shade System for two of their Class A Motorhomes: Sportscoach Pathfinder and Sportscoach Cross Country.
MCD Senior RV Market Manager Travis Townsley said, “I am happy that Coachmen has made the commitment to add MCD shades to these coaches. Their customers will be very happy with the modern look and functionality of the shade system. This unique design, with no strings to break, utilizes a simple “Touch-n-Release” motion to raise each shade. Motorhome owners will also benefit from the solar and UV protection the day shades offer as well as the 100% light-blocking capabilities of the night shades.”
“Our products represent the hottest products on the market with a clear and simple focus … great product, great price, great value. Our product advantages are significant, our quality is leading, our value is unparalleled and the Coachmen Brand remains one of the most recognized brands throughout the RV Industry!” said Amy Vicsik of Forest River, Inc.
“At MCD, we are committed to the ‘Made in USA’ philosophy and are proud to be working with a company that has had such a long-standing commitment to providing quality products to the RV consumer,” noted Townsley.
