Does Newmar also make commercial coaches also?

I just saw an ad for Sound Transit here in Seattle (Our inter county transit agency) advertising their acquisition of five new double deck buses. It says they were built in Napanee, Indiana, and the nose caps sure look like Newmars. Maybe a new double deck KingAire is in the planning stages?

Ameritrans Bus Co. in partnership with Alexander Dennis Inc. a Scotish Co. has formed a partnership to build double decker commercial buses at the former Fairmont Homes plant in Napannee, IN.
Link to story and video below.

Hey EMDF9A would not a coach styled after an EMD "F" body make a sharp looking class a motorhome. Love those F units.
Not the right style but something we would like.
