Daimler AG has announced that Detroit Diesel engines will no longer be available for motorhomes or fire trucks starting in 2010, according to National Bus Trader magazine.

Detroit Diesel powerplants after that date will be available only to Daimler-owned companies, none of which produce motorcoaches.

The primary RV manufacturer affected by the change in Germany-based Daimler's strategy will be Prevost Car Co., Sainte-Clair, Quebec, which provides bus shells to motorhome converters.

The magazine said the announcement will accelerate Prevost's strategy to offer Volvo engines to various coach markets. Prevost is owned by Volvo Bus Corp., Gothenburg, Sweden.

"Detroit Diesel has assured ... that they will fully support vehicles equipped with Detroit Diesel engines now and in the future," the periodical reported.

Prevost is in the process of identifying and providing bus-specific training for service centers that will best suit Prevost customers, National Bus Trader said.
