Prevost: Correct Pronunciation

OK

What is the real pronunciation for the frequently seen Prevost?

Prey-Vost (Pre -> short e vowel sound and Vost like Vote and Host)
or
Pree-Vost and Vost like host but with a Vhost

Pronunciation of prevost - how to pronounce prevost correctly.

Another is:
Prey-Voh (t is silent)

Merriam-Webster Pronunciation

I figure if I can't pronounce it then I can't have it.

That thinking saves us a lot of money. I can't pronounce many words??? But I can pronounce PORSCHE (instead of PORSCH) and I have a VW Diesel in the Garage .

Dirk is correct it is the Pre-voh option. It is a French word as the Prevost is made in Quebec, Canada. That is pronounced Ke-bek, not kwuah-bek as most people do. The French just do it a little differently.

I am not concerned what you call them since I'll never have one. Prevost = LOTS of Money.

FWIW, we met a couple and their children in an RV park in West Kansas some years ago. The Prevost and the towed were painted to match, complete with purple flames. The towed was a customized old stub-nosed 1 and 1/2T Ford delivery box truck. Can't describe more, way too much to attempt here. Anyway, The man was a framing contractor from CA(gives a hint how long ago), and his main concern was the cost of fuel for the Ford truck. Now here is a man driving a million-dollar bus and complaining about the cost of fuel for the 460 motor in the Ford truck/towed.
