Monaco Coach Corporation has announced that it will permanently cease
operations at its Royale Coach subsidiary. The Elkhart, Indiana, plant
shutdown is presently scheduled for November 2005. The company explored
several alternatives prior to making the decision to close its luxury
bus-conversion facility. Royale Coach has been converting approximately
22 bus shells annually.
Monaco Coach Corporation stated that it will stand behind all
established warranty and service commitments. The company also has
invited all Royale Club members to stay involved in other Monaco Coach
Corporation club groups and events.
