The 2015 LCT Show and SVI Open House
Before, during and after the LCT show, customers from around the country visited SVI to test drive and tour several types of Classic American Trolleys. With so much to see and so many people to talk to at the show, the open house was a wonderful opportunity to talk with both customers and vendors in a more relaxed setting. With additional trolleys to view in Henderson, customers also had a chance to see some of the new interior options, take extensive test drives and learn more thoroughly about the Classic American product line. With the nature of the trade show and its visitors, the Limo Trolley proved to be our most popular unit.
When Specialty Vehicles started selling trolleys back in the early 80s, the Limo Trolley wasn’t even on the radar. But in recent decades with the wedding industry ever growing and bridal parties expanding as well, the Limo Trolley has become a popular choice for both the brides and the charter companies. Limo trolleys not only offer the size and seating capabilities to handle larger groups, often lost with the smaller limousines, but a luxurious interior is also something the trolleys can offer. Leather salon seating, an oak bar cabinet, a partitioned driver’s area, an electric sliding stepwell cover and upgraded sound and media packages are some of the upgradable interior options. Some Limo trolleys are painted all white for the wedding clientele or all black for that limousine feel, while the optional rear conductor’s platform offers the perfect opportunity for photographs.
During the LCT show, SVI also displayed a Limo trolley at the trade show, with an all-black exterior and white roof, featuring perimeter black leatherette salon seating, Gerflor wood look slip resistant flooring, a 36" wide oak cooler cabinet, four (4) 20" LCD monitors with DVD player and a rear conductor’s platform. This trolley is built on a V-10 Ford gas chassis with 5-speed automatic transmission, fast idle system, 240 Amp alternator and under seat mounted heaters. As hoped, this unit was sold to an international customer during the show / open house.
