History

Millennium[2] is a family owned company with over 20 years history in the marine, aviation and luxury coach building industry. After many years of service in the luxury motorhome market, Nelson Figueroa and his wife Evelyn founded Millennium Luxury Coaches in 2000. The Figueroas launched Millennium Luxury Coaches in Sanford, Florida during the 2001 recession[3] but built the bus conversion company into a leader in the field with more than 85 employees.

Products and Services

Millennium builds Prevost XLII, X3 and H3-45 luxury coach conversions, available in multiple slide and bay configurations. In addition to new coach manufacturing, Millennium offers consignment services as well as an extensive pre-owned inventory. The Interior Design Center is run by professionals that decorate and design custom, one-of-a-kind coaches, as well as offering full interior remodels and updates. Millennium is known in the industry for its craftsmanship, with hand built cabinetry made from the finest wood, with construction techniques that allow for a 50 percent lighter result than standard builds. A special process is used to create lightweight granite countertops therefore further decreasing the weight without sacrificing the look or quality.

In 2013 Millennium started using a Savant systems custom interface, that when paired with an iPhone or iPad, allows Millennium owners to simply control virtually every aspect of their coach including the lights, awnings, entertainment options, security system, and even flush the toilets from across the county.

Millennium is a Prevost authorized service center equipped to provide professional collision, fiberglass and dent repair. They also provide awning installation, de-lamination, window replacement and full detailing. Additional services that can be found at Millennium are free insurance estimates, secured coach parking and RV storage.

Achievements

July 2012, Millennium gained approval to be added to Transport Canada’s List of Vehicles Admissible from the United States, after confirming compliance with all applicable Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS), and the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act (MVSA).

In December 2012, Millennium Luxury Coaches announced they successfully relocated the Diesel Exhaust Fluid inlet to the drivers side of the coach. It had previously been located on the passenger side which presented a problem at filling stations because of the pump being located on the drivers side. This stirred controversy as skeptics noted it brought warranty concerns with Prevost. Prevost engineers and management visited Millennium's facility to view the modifications, giving the modifications a thumbs up and eliminating warranty concerns.[6]
