Fleetwood Files Chapter 11

Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc. ("Fleetwood"), a leading producer of recreational vehicles and manufactured housing, today filed voluntary Chapter 11 petitions for itself and certain operating subsidiaries in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California in Riverside. The filings do not include any of the company's foreign or non-operating entities.

This also affects their manufactured homes division.

The trailer divisions affected are:



Pace Arrow
American Coach

Pittsburgh, PA

2002 Chevy Silverado
2003 Sunline 2553

this is pretty sad, isnt ? this has been flowting around on for a few weeks now , at first it looked like thay were just going to do away with the travel trailer divison , but about a week later they announced that the whole company is going the way side , I only hope that the misfortune of the companys that have gone under can strengthen the remaining ones so that they can weather this bad economy lets hope !

JohnB is on a distinguished road
Not good. If Monaco and Fleetwood totally go out it is gonna really hurt. There is also going to be a ripple effect just like in the Auto industry. Dexter, Alko, Dometic, Suburban, Atwood, etc and all the other companies that support the RV industry are going to be hurt when 2 of the big guys go under.

Seems we need to start counting who is left?

Some that are in the TT line up

Northwood (Artic Fox and Nash)
Forest River and the endless brands they have.
Thor and there brands.

Now I have to really start thinking hard who is left? Forest River and Thor have a lot of brands under there umbrella.

....and HiLo is still in business, though of course with smaller companies you seldom hear anything until something REALLY bad comes along.
