No matter which manufacturer it may be, it's heartbreaking to hear that these people will be out of work. They all are responsible for the enjoyment we all experience while using the products they built. We pray that this is temporary and shortlived and they're back to work soon.

Yet another sad day for the economy as a whole, and all those folks that work for Fleetwood and related industries. When will it all end?

I really don't think we will see the disappearance of Fleetwood, they are only closing the trailer division right now. I would expect them to continue on with the motorhomes for some time but they have to get back to profitability and they are just trying to compete against too much out there right now.

I 'm sorry to hear about this. It just makes me wonder what is going to happen to the Coleman/Fleetwood folding trailer division?(pop up's) I have owned 2 before this V-lite, and in my opinion, they are the #1 pop up. I had excellent results with mine. Maybe someone else will take that over....Randy

Fleetwood/Cleman Pop-Ups

My dealer informed me that Coleman had repurchased the pop-up division from Fleetwood and was planing to continue production under the Coleman name.
