Managed by well-known RV pioneer Tim Gray, the OGV Luxury Coach brand includes custom built Mercedes Sprinter Class B vans, as well as custom Prevost Bus conversions. The high-end brand aims to build premium quality, custom luxury coaches by leaning on Gray’s expertise and Forest River’s industry leadership.

“Dragonfly Energy isn't just a battery manufacturer to us, they're a partner in our commitment to our customers' safety and peace of mind,” Tim Gray, GM at Forest River Inc., said. “For Forest River's newest premium line of coaches, reliability is non-negotiable, and the Battle Born Batteries product consistently delivers – giving our customers the trusted, high quality, and reliable power they need for their increasing energy demands on the road.”

Introduced to the retail public at the 2024 Florida RV Super Show, the new OGV Luxury Coaches use Battle Born Batteries to replace the need for generators, providing customers a quieter, more environmentally friendly and cost-effective power solution. Dragonfly Energy provides a complete power system, highlighted by a large 1080AH (13 kWh) system that includes four heated Battle Born GameChanger 3.0 batteries. Customers can experience extensive off grid power while taking no additional space from the interior of the van thanks to an innovative mounting design that places the power beneath the van itself. In addition, the Battle Born Batteries system integrates seamlessly with the Garmin display, giving customers the ability to monitor and control the power system from inside the cab.

One of the world’s largest RV manufacturers, Forest River, Inc. produces market share leaders in virtually every type of motorized and towable recreational vehicle. With an estimated 40-50% of the RV industry market share, the company has more than 100 plants and over 12,000 employees.

Already, Dragonfly Energy’s Battle Born Batteries are included in other Forest River brands, including as standard equipment on Forest River’s FR3 motor coaches, Palomino Pause and as optional equipment on the Coachmen RV Entourage Class C Motorhome. The inclusion of the OGV Luxury Coach brand is the latest addition on a growing list of major recreational vehicle brands and manufacturers who now include Dragonfly Energy's products as standard equipment in various models.
