So I picked up the Feb. copy of RV Live newspaper today on a visit to Camping World and there was a very interesting article in it. I have paraphrased it a bit:
"Bigfoot, NuWa, Country Coach, National R.V., Alfa Leisure, Western Rv, Pilgrim International and Weekend Warrior are all in the process or have already ceased operations due to the weak economy and are in the process of going out of business. However, at least one company is growing, Forest River RV owned by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, recently expanded by acquiring Coachmen Industries"
Good to know that at least for the foreseeable future FR will still be around...
