Spartan Chassis Launches RV Loyalty Program

Spartan Chassis Launches RV Loyalty Program

CHARLOTTE, Mich., June 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spartan Chassis, Inc., a
subsidiary of Spartan Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPAR), announces the Spartan
Chassis Loyalty Program, a sales incentive program that rewards motorhome
customers riding on a Spartan Chassis. The Loyalty Program provides a $5,000
cash rebate* towards the purchase of a new motorhome until Sept. 9, 2013.

"This program is a way to say 'thank you' to our existing motorhome
customers," says Art Ickes, President of the Specialty Chassis and Vehicles,
Spartan Chassis. "We strive to be different and this loyalty program is a way
of differentiating Spartan during the all-important summer selling season. The
dealers have asked us to look and see what else we could do to assist with the
resurgence of the motorhome business, and this is how we are jumping into the
game. The dealers which represent our OEM customers are very important to us,
they drive the business."

Current Spartan Chassis owners must trade in a motorhome riding on a Spartan
chassis, or own another motorhome on a Spartan chassis, to qualify for the
cash rebate. Buyers have the option to use the rebate in one of two ways - a
check can be mailed to the buyer/end-user after the required documentation is
submitted or it may be applied as additional down payment for the purchase of
the motorhome.

Spartan Chassis owners know they have the best ride and handling chassis every
time they hit the open road. The Spartan Chassis Loyalty Program delivers
5,000 additional reasons to own a motorhome with the best ride and handling.
There is no better time to see your local RV dealers representing Entegra
Coach, Newmar Corporation or Tiffin Motorhomes. This offer is valid on the
retail purchase of select** new Class A Motorhomes which ride on a Spartan
Chassis.

The Spartan Chassis Loyalty Program aligns with Spartan's D.R.I.V.E. message
as it extends our core markets. The Loyalty Program is our way of saying thank
you to our existing owners. Additionally, it reaffirms Spartan's strength with
the RV business.

*Buyers of new class A Motorhomes must trade in a motorhome riding on a
Spartan chassis, or own another motorhome on a Spartan chassis, to qualify for
the cash rebate. Spartan Chassis offer valid for 102 days (5/31/13 - 9/9/13).
