Glaval introduces Synergy "mini-coach"

Posted on August 9, 2007

Glaval Bus, a division of Forest River Inc., has developed the Synergy "mini-coach," built on a raised rail Freightliner chassis, with a Cummins ISB 275 hp rear engine.

 

The first Synergy was exhibited in January at the 2007 United Motorcoach Association expo in New Orleans. The sturdy, nine-inch frame rail construction creates a solid foundation for the conversion that minimizes stress on the coach. Freightliner’s chassis with ZF independent front suspension offers a tight turning radius. The chassis has Neway air suspension and Sachs shocks for improved stability. The Allison Transmission has electronic controls providing smooth shifting during climbs and descents.

 

Other features include large interior and exterior engine access panels; lighted, heated entrance stairway; electronically-controlled, heated exterior mirrors; electric windshield shades; large bonded dual pane windows; spacious overhead parcel racks and 275 cubic feet of pass-thru, under-vehicle luggage compartments.

 

Standard and optional features for passengers include large panoramic windows; overhead storage racks with individual reading lamps, speakers and climate control; passenger window shades; individual tray tables; beverage holders, and one or several televisions with DVD capabilities.
