CHARLOTTE, Mich., June 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spartan Chassis
("Spartan"), a business unit of Spartan Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPAR), announced
today it has signed an agreement with Coach-Net to offer roadside assistance,
a complete package of emergency roadside services available free of charge to
owners of premium motorhomes featuring a Spartan Chassis. The program, which
covers all 2015 model-year coaches, offers options such as towing, tire
changes, fuel deliveries and battery jump-starts.

"Roadside assistance service offers extra security for motorhome owners," said
Art Ickes, President of the Specialty Vehicles business unit, Spartan Chassis.
"One phone call and the motorhome owner will receive free roadside assistance,
24 hours a day, seven days a week, to any location in the continental United
States or in Canada. Spartan is focused on service that will excite the
consumer and develops brand fanatics. Spartan roadside assistance is a service
which turns a negative situation into a positive event."

Roadside assistance coverage includes:

  *Towing and mobile mechanical assistance to the nearest qualified repair
    facility
  *Delivery of up to five gallons of fuel or replacement fluids
  *Tire change or replacement
  *Battery jumpstart
  *Lockout service or replacement key

Coach-Net is the largest automotive roadside assistance and technical support
company in North America, with a network of more than 20,000 qualified
roadside assistance providers who provide full-time technical support and
emergency road service.

Spartan prides itself on excellent customer support, which is one of the
reasons current Spartan owners are said to overwhelmingly prefer the Spartan
experience for their next chassis. Spartan's free roadside assistance plan is
good for three years or 50,000 miles and utilizes Coach-Net to handle any
roadside assistance concerns.

Current Spartan owners who are still under warranty and eligible for roadside
assistance will be transitioned into the Coach-Net program for the remainder
