Wondering about the history of the Birkshire...

Fairly young model. Best I can tell the oldest Birkshires are 2008. Correct?Also did Forest river start from scratch or did it buy an assembly plant that previously assembled another brand? If so what was the previous coach at the plant? Seems to be a coach well put together with quality component parts. Just wondering!

Wow, what a great question. I own a Berkshire and have no idea about the background. All I can tell you is that the Berkshire came about shortly after the Company was bought by Berkshire Hathaway, also known as Warren Buffet's investment fund.
