CHARLOTTE, Mich., July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Spartan Specialty Vehicles, a business unit of Spartan Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPAR) ("Spartan" or the "Company")—a global leader in specialty chassis and vehicle design, manufacturing, and assembly—and OEM partner Entegra Coach®, a division of Jayco, Inc., which is a subsidiary of Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE:THO), unveiled the all-new 2019 Entegra Coach Reatta™ luxury Class A diesel motorhome at the Family Motor Coach Association's (FMCA) 98th International Convention & RV Expo in Gillette, Wyoming. Built on the newest Spartan K1 360 chassis, the Reatta is a luxury motor coach built for owners who desire high-end luxury in a smaller, more nimble package.

"The Reatta offers the industry's premier foundation for RV owners looking for a luxury chassis, but who are looking for a smaller coach," said Steve Guillaume, President of Spartan Specialty Vehicles. "Partnering with Entegra Coach, and combining their craftsmanship with our best-in-class chassis quality and durability gives our customers the added assurance of a worry-free lifestyle on the road." 

Featuring an independent front suspension package, complete with custom-tuned Bilstein shocks and a heavy-duty Cummins® 360 horsepower diesel engine, the K1 360 provides drivers of the Entegra Reatta with superior ride and handling, and the muscle to attack any mountain. Designed to enhance the user experience with premium interior décors, an exterior 39-inch LED HD-TV, entertainment system, and stunning exterior paint choices, the Reatta merges top-of-the-line luxury with the ease of an entry-level driver experience. Welcoming buyers into the market, this smaller Entegra model targets RV buyers at a lower price point than was traditionally available in a diesel pusher, as well as existing owners seeking to transition into a smaller coach, while still enjoying Spartan chassis' industry-best features.  

The Spartan K1 360 chassis includes:

  • Industry-first Cummins B-series engine packaged chassis with an Independent Front Suspension
  • Bilstein 46mm shocks which provide consistent ride tuning
  • Easier serviceability with Spartan's exclusive side-mounted service center
  • 10,000 lb. towing capacity
  • Raised rail design for frame strength and basement storage
  • Rear-mounted radiator and charge air cooler, parallel air flow system with low-profile radiator with clutch to minimize noise and dust kick-up
