Forest River Inc. announces warranty milestone

Posted on October 1, 2018

Forest River Bus, America’s largest shuttle bus manufacturer, announced  the longest and most comprehensive warranty in the industry today.

All Forest River commercial buses will now come standard with a five-year/100,000 mile warranty at no additional charge. Before now, this warranty was only available on Forest River’s luxury flagship bus brand, Berkshire Coach.

David Wright, president of Forest River Bus Divisions, said, “Forest River customers deserve the absolute best coverage our industry has to offer. Our warranty is now double, triple, and in some cases, five times the length of our competitor’s. We were the first to offer seatbelts as standard equipment and the only company to include a backup camera with every bus we build. It only makes sense that we should be the first to offer a comprehensive five-year/100,000 mile warranty at no additional cost.”

Wright continued, “The plan to offer a five-year/100,000 mile warranty has been in development for more than a year. This warranty would never have been possible without the unparalleled partnership we have with our dealers and our suppliers. Forest River’s financial strength, outstanding supplier relationships and commitment to the end user is what makes this type of warranty possible.”

Forest River, Inc., is one of America’s leading manufacturers of recreational vehicles, pontoon boats, cargo trailers and buses and is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.
