Forest River RV, a division of Forest River, Inc., was founded in 1996 by Peter Liegl with the dream of making outdoor experiences more enjoyable. Forest River RV is one of the largest RV manufacturers in North America. At the time of the company’s founding, Forest River RV produced tent-campers, travel trailers, fifth wheels, and park models. Over the course of nearly a decade, Forest River continued to expand its lineup of vehicles, moving into the marine industry and bus business through a number of acquisitions. In 2005, Forest River, Inc. was acquired by Berkshire Hathaway. Present day Forest River RV now produces Class A and C motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, camping trailers and destination trailers. They also produce pontoons, park models, buses, cargo trailers, and commercial trucks.
Forest River RV believes in being at the forefront of the RV industry and accomplishes that mission by offering a wide array of products while providing quality and dependability. Forest River RV also offers the perfect vehicle solution for RVers of every walk of life, whether RVing for them is full- or part-time. With manufacturing facilities throughout the Midwest and west coast, Forest River RV is able to build each order promptly and reliably, ensuring that each unit is thoroughly inspected and conscientiously built.
Forest River RV has also created FROG (Forest River Owners' Group,) which allows RVers to share their love for the outdoors with other enthusiasts. FROG was established in 2011, and in the past eight years has grown to over 90,000 members. Membership to the Forest River Owners’ Group is free, and members enjoy attending rallies and tours throughout North America together while building memories and experiences in their recreational vehicles.
Forest River Inc.’s commercial vehicle offering ranges from trucks to trailers and buses, through divisions such as Rockport, Ameralite, and Elkhart Coach. Forest River Pontoons offers a range of marine options, including the Berkshire, South Bay and Trifecta.
