Powerhouse Coach Company

In the market for a custom coach, conversion, camper, RV, or commercial coach? Powerhouse Coach Company wants your business. Their 2016 model is quite affordable, and their attention to each customer’s needs means their custom builds are just that – custom tailored to your wishes.

Powerhouse Coach prides themselves on using high-quality materials (they use a Volvo chassis for nearly every build, and it’s said to last a million miles), and their product speaks for itself. Capable of enduring almost any weather condition (partially due to its 2000 lbs of torque and up to 650 hp capabilities and its auto shift transmission), the Powerhouse is available to drive by everyone — no CDL required.

Another perk is that since this is technically a recreational vehicle, you will never have to stop at DOT inspections, weigh stations, or port of entries. The coaches are also purportedly much safer than other standard vehicles, with a ⅛” steel plate below and engine out front, providing stability as well as easy to control braking. Whether you’re wanting to haul vehicles, horses, or materials, Powerhouse promises that they can build something to your liking, capable of towing up to 40,000 lbs.

Starting from the ground up, Powerhouse begins with a Volvo chassis, then moves to constructing a second chassis for the coach body, which will be built to house tanks and wiring. This adds more space in the “basement” and gives the vehicle added strength. Next, Powerhouse uses NASA’s own urethane foam insulation, which both insulates and protects. Once the floor is complete, the next phase is installing the slide-outs’ two hydraulic rams and a gear rack system. It is interesting to note that most coach companies only include one hydraulic ram per slide, which can cause issues later on, requiring repairs, time, and lots of money.

The walls of a Powerhouse coach differ from other coach companies’ builds in that they’re fiberglass, gel coat sheeting, and vinyl board, not metal framing, though they do use steel reinforcements in specific areas. After the walls are up, the roof (which is a triple combo of fiberglass, rubber, and plywood) is put on, then everything is caulked so that the coach is airtight, and will retain heat or cool air.

The storage bays below sport welded hinges, and are constructed entirely of steel, though they are of course covered in a material akin to pickup truck beds to make them tough and resistant to wear and tear. After this is done, the interior of the coach is made to match the client’s specifications, and once again lower quality materials (like Formica) are ignored in favor of hardwood, as all the cabinetry and flooring are done in house by professional carpenters.

Whatever you’re looking for in a coach, Powerhouse Coach Company promises to deliver. If you’re in the market, it’s worth your time to visit their website, watch their YouTube videos, and see what’s available. If you want to see their videos, you can view them on their Powerhouse Coach Videos page. You can also see their floor plans, construction process, and read up on their warranty at the Powerhouse Coach Company website.
