rv-pro.com July 2018 • RV PRO • 71 Looking ahead, Guillaume says many of the company's biggest challenges are what he describes as "all good things." That includes figuring out ways to continue to grow and provide Spartan's cus- tomers with better geographic coverage while maintaining its high level of service and support. "Certainly, another challenge is keeping up with the pace of some of these new innovations," he says. "Particularly in the automotive industry, innovation occurs rapidly, so we're putting a lot of resources into trying to make sure we keep pace with those innovations and keep them coming every year." Particularly intriguing, he believes, is interest in electric vehicles (EV) and how that might translate to RVs in the future. And, while recent months have brought some concern about rising commodity prices, Guillaume is optimistic about the RV market. While retiring Baby Boomers will continue to fuel the high-end market, he says Millennials' embrace of the outdoor lifestyle will support the market for years to come. "We're committed to the motorhome market," Guillaume says. "Our focus has been high-end premium vehicles, and we'll continue to look at helping grow the Class A market. It will be interesting to see how things progress in the years to come." Spartan takes great pride in manufacturing all of its motorhome chassis in the United States. The company proudly displays the stars and stripes of the American flag on its trade show and rally chassis.
