MARCH 6, 2010, GAFFNEY, S.C. – Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) expands its presence in the motorhome industry by entering into a new multiyear exclusivity agreement with Damon Motor Coach and Four Winds International, which are both divisions of Thor Industries.
The agreement is for upcoming model years of all Damon and Four Winds rear-diesel Class A motorhomes including the Astoria, Astoria Pacific Edition, Tuscany and Essence from Damon; and the Montecito from Four Winds.
With the new agreement, FCCC’s XC-R raised-rail chassis will be the exclusive chassis offered on the Damon and Four Winds diesel models.
