Equine Motorcoach to Use RV|ID
SmartRV service provides helpful tools and enhances the customer experience
Louisville, KY (November 22, 2011). Equine Motorcoach, the builder of an all-in-one motorized RV and horse transport vehicle to be showcased at the RVIA Industry Trade Show this month, announced it is equipping its vehicles with RV|ID™. RV|ID is the innovative location-based system that provides real-time mapping, reports and alerts for high-value mobile assets. Using GPS and wireless communications, together with sophisticated software analytics, RV|ID gives Equine Motorcoach state-of-the art tools to efficiently manage inventory and improve customer support.
In addition, RV|ID-equipped RVs include the exciting new SmartRV™ consumer service. Smart RVs connect RV owners with their RVs and enable them to share their adventures with family and friends on the Internet. The SmartRV service monitors RV batteries, detects theft, provides location information, and automatically generates trip journals.
“The Equine Motorcoach is an exciting new product offering the latest in available technology so it makes perfect sense that it should also include RV|ID as standard equipment.” stated Tom Stinnett, principal and national dealer for Equine Motorcoach who is also the owner of Tom Stinnett Derby City RV in Clarksville, Ind., and co-chair of the Go-RVing Coalition. “RV|ID is good for our business because it enables us to keep in close contact with our customers while giving them to an innovative way to monitor their RVs and ensure the well-being of their horses.”
“We’re pleased that Equine’s innovative RVs will be Smart RVs,” stated John Mancinelli, vice president of RV dealer development for Red Lantern Labs, which offers the RV|ID and SmartRV services. “For manufacturers like Equine, and dealers like Tom Stinnett, our commercial and consumer services are useful, value-add selling features that benefit the whole supply chain, and especially RV owners.”
