FALL 2009

Your safety is always highest priority with Prevost!

Red Carpet Service! As we celebrate the first anniversary of our new Sales and Service Center, we thought it appropriate to thank those who have made this past year a huge success and welcome others to experience the Millennium difference! Located conveniently off I-4 in Central Florida, a few blocks from our production facility, we celebrated the Grand Opening last August and it’s been a busy year! Millennium services all makes and models of RV’s from oil changes and alignments to full scale interior renovations. With a fully stocked parts department, our skilled technicians and craftsman can quickly turn around a preventive maintenance trip or help you create a whole new look in your home on wheels.

The system also provides audible and visual warning to the driver via a cockpit control panel. A manual discharge switch, conveniently located near the driver allows for an immediate discharge of the extinguisher and activation of vehicle shutdown. Always at the forefront of engineering and design, Prevost’s new Fire Detection and Suppression system is the most complete system on the market today. It uses not only a linear thermal detector, but also an optical infrared to improve passenger safety by protecting the engine compartment from fire. The optical infrared is the same patented technology used to detect crew bay explosions on military tanks. It looks for fire verses feeling for temperature and can detect rapidly building fire in less than one second!

The Prevost Fire Detection and Suppression System

Millennium recently worked with Val and Chas, a couple from Orlando who were new to RVing. After purchasing their very first RV, a Travel Supreme, they decided they

needed a few “upgrades” before hitting the road on their maiden voyage. They met with our designers and service specialists and decided to upgrade their audio/video equipment, modify cabinetry, add designer backsplashes and install custom made ceiling accent panels. “The courtesy and respect with which we were treated was the deciding factor for us…..the quality of work was absolutely fantastic and first-class! We are thrilled with the work they’ve done for us!” – Val & Chas, Orlando, Florida “The challenge is always to complete the remodel without it looking as if we’ve been there. Everything we do needs to look as if it were part of the original conversion while at the same time making the changes the client wants”, says Evelyn Figueroa, Vice President. Millennium was also recently challenged with a full scale remodel on a 2006 Prevost H3-45. The interior renovation required reupholstering furniture while matching fabrics and finishes. “On this particular remodel, the coach was essentially new inside but didn’t fit the client’s lifestyle. We converted the galley dining area into a new dining bar with matching bar stools, mirrored walls were softened with leather upholstered panels. A custom bedding ensemble was designed to match the new interior. Skip and Georgia knew what they wanted; they just needed our resources to find the exact materials and show them their options.” With over 2000 vendors represented in our Design Center, there’s something for everyone. From fabric and fixtures to lighting and custom hardware you can get creative as we update your interior. “Bravo! Job well done! It’s nice to work with people who are concerned

about getting it right. From our original phone visit thru the entire planning and renovation we were impressed. No surprises! The daily updates as well as many emails and photos made us feel part of what was going on. On budget and ahead of schedule! Being part of the Millennium family is a good thing!” – Skip and Georgia, Morrow, OH With the concern for our environment ever growing and the cost of fuel skyrocketing, more and more clients are updating their coaches to make them more environmentally friendly and energy efficient. The addition of a tire pressure monitoring system monitors current air pressure and indicates when tires are under inflated. Properly inflated tires are not only safer, they greatly increase fuel economy. “We’ve seen huge advances in LED technology over the past year”, says Nelson Figueroa, President of Millennium. “We’ve discovered some great products that are retrofitable to bring that new technology to the industry” Great service, new technology and expert knowledge are all vital to this industry but it’s that extra level of concierge service that sets Millennium Luxury Coaches apart. Stop by and experience our Red Carpet Service and let Millennium be part of YOUR journey!

CONNECTIONS!

A stunning vista awaits you around every corner! Beautifully landscaped with a rich blend of flowers, native plants and unique bronze sculptures throughout, this luxury resort an ideal place for a morning jog or an evening stroll. Or for those less ambitious types just sit back and relax the afternoon away as you take in the beauty around you.

Meet Shane, Holly, the kids and critters! With a custom play bay for the kids and a critter sitter for the animal kingdom, this family hits the road in style in their new Millennium Luxury Coach. Holly & Shane

Hometown(s): Shane and Holly are both from Louisiana and along with their children 15 & 14 year old sons, Chance and Ashton and 11 year old twin daughters McKinley & McKaelyn, they still call Louisiana home. “But this is not all of our family,” Holly noted, “We have (2) dogs, Sophie our Yorkie and Bailey the 120lb Belgium Shepherd. We also have Jacobi, a Blue Point Himalayan cat, and a Sun Conure Parrot we call Mango. Thumper is our bunny and last, but not least, Penelope, our rat. When leaving town our biggest worry is getting a babysitter for our animal kingdom!” How long have been RVing? “We weren’t sure if we would like to travel in an RV, so we started off small. We found that we loved it so much, we quickly moved up to a Prevost!” They have owned (4) coaches now, the latest a custom built 2009 Millennium H-3 45. Holly oversaw every aspect of the build and her personal touch can be found in every detail from start to finish. What do you enjoy most about your Millennium? “Our Millennium is our home away from home. It’s so nice that we can just head out with everything we need and not worry about packing and unpacking. We enjoy meeting our friends and hanging out.” And they will tell you that their coach is an official wine cellar with over 5,000 different wines. But no matter how expensive the wine, you’ll have to drink it out of a paper cup. There are no glasses allowed in their coach! What are some of your favorite places to go in your RV? “One of our favorite places is Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort in Spearfish, South Dakota. This is a first class park with everything you need and more! The wonderful “Tex Mex” breakfast served at the stand out front is a great way to wake up and get you going for the motorcycle rides with friends. We recently went on the Needles ride in August.” Who likes to drive and who likes to direct? Shane definitely likes to drive, he says that it’s very relaxing and Holly likes to direct! Most memorable moment RVing? “On one of our trips we went to Yellowstone National Park. I don’t know what we were thinking, but we pulled a stacker trailer down a very treacherous road that was made only for donkeys and cars! Thank goodness we made it,” Holly exclaimed; “I was never so scared in my life!” Hobbies – Shane loves to ride his Harleys and race boats. He also loves exotic automobiles.

o2 Fall 2009

Other interesting facts – Shane is a CEO of a national company and after 22 years as a dancer and dance instructor Holly has hung up her dancing shoes and is now the CEO of the Guidry household (and zoo!)

“Our Finicky-est Friends!” Meet Churchill the Wonder Beagle. Churchill is 5 years old and lives with his parents, Loc and Courtenay in Houston Texas, where they’re known for they’re big hats, big hair and I guess big beagles! “I love to travel in our Millennium to sniff out new places!” Churchill barked. “I’ve sniffed my way through 40 states and even Canada.
