The luxury RV industry took a hit in the recession but things are looking up. Marathon Coaches just announced it will be hiring at its Coburg location.
Steve Schoelhorn is President and Owner of Marathon. He says the jobs are in exterior paint, production and service.
Schoelhorn: "We are looking to hire about 25 people in the next 90 days if we can and then look to grow our production and our service operations further as the market allows but without a doubt the trend is on the uptick."
Schoelhorn attributes the increased demand to improved consumer confidence. New Marathon Coaches retail for about 2-million dollars. Schoelhorn says used RVs can be found for 200 thousand dollars.
