Spartan RV Chassis representatives will be onsite at both events, providing expertise and answering questions about the Company's newly launched Dealer RV Chassis Connect™ app and recently updated Connected Care™ mobile application for RV owners.

"Technology is a critical part of our industry," said Steve Guillaume, President of Shyft Specialty Vehicles. "Our customers operate in a digital world, and we are focused on developing new ways to deliver product information and support to them. Our Connected Care app allows us to provide the superior customer service we're known for in a virtual environment."
The Florida RV SuperShow typically represents the destination for many RV travelers as they embark on the first road trip of the calendar year. To that end, Spartan has expanded its popular chassis maintenance bundle, now offering customizable Chassis Care Kits, for any coach model riding on a Spartan RV chassis. This package of parts and routine maintenance items empowers owners of any model year Spartan RV chassis with the ability to make basic repairs without visiting a service center. The updated kits now cover all motor coaches riding on Spartan RV chassis—new and old—should an unexpected repair arise on the road.
"Spartan RV Chassis is committed to keeping you on the road, and to helping ensure your next adventure is worry free," said Guillaume. "Our chassis-specific care kits include on-hand maintenance parts needed in case of an emergency and are an easy and convenient way to keep your coach running smoothly."
Spartan RV Chassis Care Kits can be customized to service any motor coach riding on a Spartan RV Chassis—including those from OEMs Entegra, Newmar, Jayco, NeXus, and Foretravel—and contains various filters, fluids, and belts.
