About Oregon Motorcoach Center
In the early 70’s, a few enthusiasts began manufacturing RV’s in Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley. One of those passionate big-thinkers was Bob Lee, who would become a patriarch to the entire RV industry as these small family businesses grew and the region blossomed into the birthplace of the highline motorcoach industry.
A host of manufacturers have joined the premium coach and RV industry since then and today tens of thousands of coach owners have discovered this unique lifestyle. As the industry grew, so did the demand for quality service—excellence, expertise, and responsiveness that seem to be increasingly harder to find.
We’d like to change that.
OMC is an innovative business, but also a return to our roots. Our vision is to set the new standard for restoration, renovation, and service by rekindling the spirit of our industry’s beginnings: the highest quality service and product, done in a timely manner, delivered in a friendly family atmosphere with a personal touch. Just like it was done when the industry was young, but with all of the knowledge, state-of-the-art technology, luxury materials, and practical and premium features available today. We bring together the expertise, passion, and resources of not only Bob Lee, but of a team—a family—to serve you.

Bob Lee, Owner
Bob Lee is truly “bigger than life” within the motorcoach industry, so it’s no wonder his biography is a little longer. To a certain extent, Bob’s history is Oregon Motorcoach Center’s history and our point of origin.
Bob was born into a logging and dairy farming family in Klamath Falls, OR. He joined the U.S. Navy after high school and trained as a jet mechanic. He left the service in 1961, married his longtime love Terry, and went to work near Los Angeles, CA for North American Rockwell, where he was an equipment buyer with the Apollo Space Program. In 1968, he decided to return to his Oregon roots and moved his young family to Junction City, OR. With two friends, he became one of the original founders of Monaco Corporation (established at the time as Caribou Manufacturing.) He was with Monaco until 1973, when he and his partners decided to go separate ways. He founded Country Camper in 1973, working as a service manager at a Ford dealership during the day and building truck canopies in a garage at night. Country Camper grew and was incorporated in 1974. Today, Country Coach, as it’s now known, was a leading manufacturer of highline Class A diesel pushers. In 2008, he decided that the motorcoach industry lacked a service and renovation center that was dedicated to excellence, integrity, honesty, and quality. In a return to the roots of the RV industry—and with a desire to reinvigorate the family atmosphere in the motorcoach lifestyle—he founded Oregon Motorcoach Center.
Bob was a prominent voice within the recreation industry, having held various positions within the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), as well as serving as a board member of the Oregon Reinforced Plastics Association. In August of 2000, Bob Lee was inducted into the RV/MH Heritage Foundation Hall of Fame. He was honored by the Junction City-Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce with a Distinguished Service Award in 2006 for his community involvement. He has served on the board of the Junction City-Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce and on the city council for Junction City.
