hmmm

"Federal Coach exited the mini-bus business entirely when it closed the sale of its bus division and Federal Coach label license to Forest River Inc. on Dec. 31, 2009. The sale price was not disclosed.

Federal buses, built on Ford, GM, and Freightliner chassis, will be manufactured at Starcraft Bus Company’s 100,000 square-foot plant in Goshen, Ind. Starcraft is owned by Forest River Inc., which is owned by Berkshire-Hathaway, a Warren Buffett company."


I wonder if Forest River is trying to become the next Thor industries..

thor owns goshen, eldrarado, champion, and sjc industries for the bus line. I have a goshen. was pre-thor industries as to how i know how that lol. seems when thor buys something they have a party and burn any previous records of previous models lol

I certainly hope thier boats don`t have the water leaks most TT`s suffer from?!!! I wish they would put the same effort into build quality as they put into that video. you know little issues like tires right under slide out seals (just like a pressure wash right into a seal) or a gutter that sags in the middle instead of crowning, so the water will run out properly. you know, common sense type things!

I wonder if Warren Buffett even knows what a 5th wheel or camper looks like on the inside.

I posted the video because to me it really speaks to the vision that FR has regarding its place in the industry/market. It recognizes the various ways customers can engage in the lifestyle and seeks to position itself not just within those area, but as trusted leaders in those areas. I think it was very well done and in keeping with the attitude and confidence I have seen in the FR people I have met.

FR is such a well run company the BH bought into them and left the management team in place. That is more than a little bit of an endorsement in the company and management. Anyone who follows BH knows they invest in good companies, good people and good products.
