TAMPA, Fla.
, Jan. 17, 2019 — Foretravel Motorcoach, a manufacturer of luxury motorhomes, and Spartan Motors, Inc., have introduced the Foretravel Iron Colt (ic-37), a 37-foot Class A diesel motorhome.

The RV is debuting at the Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa. It’s targeted at new RVers just entering the Class A market or other RVers who want to downsize but not lose creature comforts.

The RV is built atop Spartan’s K2 450 chassis and features Spartan Motors’ Safe Haul integrated tow braking system and Connected Coach, a technology bundle that includes a digital dash-display of the coach’s instrument panel cluster and navigation components. Additionally, the coach includes fuel level and DEF level gauges and keyless start technology.

Foretravel designed the ic-37 to be smaller in length and shorter in height while increasing horsepower to preserve towing and power capabilities associated with a Class A diesel motorhome. The ic-37 offers large capacity tanks for onboard fuel, freshwater and corresponding holding tanks.


Premium features unique to the RV include:

  • Cummins L9 450-HP diesel engine
  • Allison 3000 MH transmission
  • 3-stage engine compression brake
  • Suspended adjustable pedals
  • 17,000-lb. independent front suspension with air disc brakes
  • 24,000-lb. drive axle with air disc brakes
  • Spartan Connected Coach featuring push-button start and next-generation digital dash
  • Safe Haul chassis integrated air supply for tow vehicle brake systems

In addition to best-in-class technology, Spartan provides nearly 300 authorized service centers across the U.S. to provide RV owners with 24/7/365 support.

Foretravel is a coach I really wanted but my pockets were not deep enough. I went with a Newmar Mountain Aire. My tastes wanted the King Aire, but again my pockets said otherwise. I still appreciate the build, and reputation that Foretravel has. I almost bought a slightly used one, but I could hear my father’s words in my head, and bought new. Yeah I know, let someone else take the depreciation hit, but anything on wheels depreciates, and I feel like that is the cost of ownership. Others feel different and that is their right.

I find it interesting that a 37′ motorhome would be considered “downsizing”, but then, I’ve never owned a motorhome so what do I know. This, from a 30′ travel trailer owner . . .

Friends have a $250+k motorhome and the booth seating only seats two. So if they have guests for dinner (or lunch or whatever) they have to break out folding chairs and TV trays. To me, this is ridiculous for a coach of that worth.

I watched this video though, and the Iron Colt looks very luxurious.

Foretravel was building only 45′ coaches for the past few years – so yes this is downsizing. FT builds fine coaches, and the multiple service centers specializing in the brand in Nacogdoches TX offer superb support.

We are full timing in a 2003 40′ Foretravel we have owned for 2 years.
