Marathon Coach, Inc. began operations in September 1983 converting new commercial bus shells into luxury recreational vehicles and corporate coaches. Since 1989, Marathon has built their custom-crafted conversions on Prevost bus shells, becoming the Volvo subsidiary’s largest bus converter.
In 1990, Bob Schoellhorn purchased his first Marathon coach and invested in the company after retiring from 17 years of service (including more than 10 years as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board) at Abbott Laboratories, a major pharmaceutical company. He became sole owner of Marathon Coach in 1994, using his worldwide business expertise and investment to accelerate Marathon's expansion by many years. Marathon moved into its custom-built Coburg, Oregon plant, and opened its Marathon Coach Florida sales and service complex in San Antonio, near Tampa, that same year. Marathon Coach Texas, opened in Grand Prairie, near Dallas/Fort Worth, in November 2006.
Marathon Coach, Inc. produces the world's most sought after bus conversions.

Marathon's engineers, craftspeople, and designers are the best in the industry. Each department works together to design and produce each custom coach.
