Coachmen RV was founded 55 years ago by brothers Tom, Keith, and Claude Corson. The company started started small in a 5,000 square foot Middlebury, Indiana plant. At the time, they only made a dozen travel trailers, one truck camper, and 80 truck caps. Since that time, Coachmen RV has made and sold over 750,000 vehicles. Today, the main manufacturing is housed in Middlebury on over 220 acres. 23 acres are specifically for their Class A Motorhomes, Class B Motorhomes, Class C Motorhomes, Fifth Wheels, and Travel Trailers. The Coachmen Camping Trailers are made in a 90 acre facility in Centerville, Michigan.
Dedicated to the enrichment of your life is the principle that Coachmen RV continues to build on. They strive to give beyond excellent value which lasts with equally phenomenal support and service for their products. As leaders to the great outdoors, Coachmen is focused on building relationship with their buyers. This shows with their trustworthy warranty that is back up by hundreds of authorized dealers. Owners also have the ability to join the Coachmen Owner's Association which assists them in ways to live and enjoy their RV to the fullest.
None of these values changed in December 2008 when Coachmen RV became a brand of Forest River, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company. Coachmen RV strives itself on their quality while keeping high standards in safety, function, fit, and finish. They have a toll-free service number to talk to a support center, as well as an online support center. This is where owners will find trouble shooting tips, videos, maintenance information, dealer locations, and more. During the first year, owners of most Coachmen RVs will receive 24/7 roadside emergency service. This includes services like fuel delivery, tire assistance, towing, lockout, and more.
In addition to this, Coachmen is proud of their Green Certification. Coachmen products have incorporated recycled products into their manufacturing for years. They also strive to increase a greener approach in their work practices. Working with another agency, they have been able to follow TRA Certification with their practices.
Coachmen RVs commercial offerings include motorhomes, toy haulers, fifth wheelers, travel trailers, destination trailers, and camping trailers. Their Pursuit ClassA Motorhome was named one of RV Business top RV debuts in 2018. The Apex Ultra-Lite Travel Trailer was named the RV News best of show for 2019.
