MBA student collecting data on RV purchasing decisions, need your help Jerry Wetzel 12-2-09  
I have a team of students and we are collecting data samples or RV's. We were looking at ways to improve the Prevost line of motorhomes, but were thinking this may work for many different types of coaches.

If any of you would be so kind as to answer our questions if they are important to any of you when considering purchasing a motor home

What does the typical luxury bus customer look like?
a) Private Owner--%
b) Corporation--%
c) Part of a fleet--%

All other features being equal, Would customers buy a Prevost bus over other Class A a competitor if it had the following green features:
a) Hybrid Fuel Engine
b) Solar Panels
c) Recyclable or renewable green interiors
d)Waste water recycling system

How much would you pay for these features?
a)-5% current price
b) 0
c) 5% more than current price
d) 10% more than current price

How important is it that all auxiliary appliances are Energy Star Certified?
a) very important
b) somewhat important
c) not very important
d) not important at all

What is the average cost to offer a luxury bus with a fuel hybrid engine?
Diesel? Natural Gas?

I read these discussion questions on a regular basis and it may be of value to your effort to get a clearer view of who you are asking for input.
Based on the questions in this forum, it doesn't seem that there are any folks in this group that would be spending half a million on a motor coach.
The owners and prospective buyers of high end coaches appear to resolve their decision issues by some other means.
I read lots of questions about engine cooling problems, suspension repairs, electrical problems, the resale value of a 20yr old Fleetwood, etc. Lots of do-it-yourself type questions.
I would be interested in your feedback concerning the responses you get from this forum. Just curious.
