Foretravel Motorcoach—a Nacogdoches, Texas-based RV manufacturer—is now also a maker of custom humidors.
At this week’s TPE 2022 trade show, the company is showing off its new Foremidor, a custom humidor that employs many of the same techniques the company uses to make its RVs. The first Foremidor was created for a local cigar shop, but now the company is applying for patents and plans to offer them to a variety of clients, including both those in the cigar business as well as end consumers. Each one is custom built and can be configured in various capacities and with different features.
The TPE 2022 display model uses automative paint and custom branding for the Casa 1910 brand. This particular Foremidor retails for $16,000 due in part to options like the automative paint, cedar interior, RGB lighting and other interior features. The Foremidor uses a door similar like the ones the company uses on its motorcoaches.
Advantages to the Foremidor start with its uniqueness, the aluminum shell and custom paint, all of which makes it visually different than a traditional cabinet humidor. Because of Foretravel’s extensive options for its motorhomes, the possibilities for customization of the Foremidor are virtually endless. For example, the humidors could be configured with leather on the interior if a customer wanted. One other notable feature is that the Foremidor comes on wheels, meaning it can easily be moved from one location to another and should fit through standard-size doors.
Foretravel began in 1967 when its founders—C.M. and Marie Fore—built their own motorhome in their backyard. The company claims numerous firsts for the RV industry, including the first diesel motorhome, the first motorhome to use full air ride suspensions, and the first company to use fiberglass instead of aluminum.
The MSRPs of the company’s top-of-the-line motorhomes are more than $1.5 million.
