September 11, 2007

After partnering with Conquest Motorhomes, a division of Gulf Stream Coach and one of the RV industry’s leading manufacturers, to make International Truck and Engine its cab and chassis provider for its Class C diesel motorhomes, International is launching a new website dedicated to the RV industry.

The new site,, includes information such as specs and photos for RVs and RXT Haulers.

“The RV industry, especially the Class C motorhome market, is a growing industry for International,” said Steve Guillaume, General Manager, Medium Truck, International. “This new website will provide more resources for customers interested in International’s new products for the RV industry.”

International’s RV lineup includes the International DuraStar chassis incorporated on Gulf Stream Coach’s Super Nova and Gladiator (Enduramax) models.

Features of that model include:

  • Superior gross vehicle weight (GVW) capacity;
  • Best-in-class towing capability of up to 12,000 lb;
  • Roomy cab, including an ergonomic interior design;
  • Proven, durable diesel engine offering: the 300-hp International VT 365;
  • Exterior mirrors that are 42% larger than traditional mirrors for enhanced rear visibility;
  • Smooth ride, handling and maneuverability for drivers and passengers; and
  • Unmatched service and parts network of nearly 900 dealer outlets in North America.

These RVs will be on display and available for test drives at the 39th Annual Pennsylvania RV & Camping Show in Hershey, Pa., in the GulfStream display booth.
In addition, the International RXT Hauler offers a more powerful and attention-getting alternative to other trucks, especially when it comes to the equestrian, RV and motorsports markets. With more than 11 tons of towing capacity, the RXT Hauler can pull the largest recreational trailers with ease.

Powered by an International MaxxForceTM 9 I6 diesel engine, the International RXT Hauler provides 310 hp and 950 ft-lb of torque.

Not only does it provide power to spare, it also features a roomy cab. The four-door crew cab can easily seat up to five passengers and still leave room for equipment. The cab air suspension system and leather seats provide a smooth, comfortable ride.

The new website and RXT Hauler are just two more examples of International’s growing commitment to the RV industry, which includes the acquisition of Workhorse Custom Chassis.
