Liberty “Firsts”Since we finished the first Prevost conversion in 1979, Liberty Coach has been responsible for virtually every important breakthrough in every aspect of coach design and construction. Scroll to the right for a look at some of our historical highlights.
1979 – First Prevost Coach ConversionIn 1979, Liberty Coach built the first coach conversion on the Prevost LeMirage XL chassis, and inked an agreement with the Canadian bus manufacturer that remains in place today.
1984 – Generator Auto Start SystemDeveloped to eliminate the need to carry propane onboard, Liberty’s Auto Start System tied generator startup and shutoff to battery voltage levels. The system quickly became the industry standard and remains so today.
1993 – Programmable Logic ControlOne of the most important advances in motorcoach technology came in 1993, when Liberty introduced the first electrical system to employ programmable logic control, which allowed most coach systems to be operated by computer.
2010 – “Green” Battery SystemIn 2010, Liberty scrapped its old lead-acid batteries for the far lighter, safer, and more powerful lithium ion phosphate battery system. The move resulted in weight reduction of up to 1,000 lbs. per coach while enhancing generator efficiency.
